I have two sons and they are so different, they have same interests, but comparing their social skills or the way they communicate, they are totally different.

The problem is that many people are uncomfortable getting their idea out, or too timid to step out of their comfort zones. Continue reading “Great Idea Can Come From Anywhere!”
