It is an opportunity to explore some topics of interest while learning how to be better at what you do each day.

Starting a new business or trying to get the money to support and develop an idea can be a very daunting task, specially, if you did not grow up in a business environment or with a business mindset. Therefore exploring in a brief way the different examples can give you an idea of what type of attributes you need to start practicing and acquiring. While studying each of the different examples you might find patterns that can help you understand what will be needed when trying to achieve something big, and also many things or habits you might want to avoid in order not to make the same mistakes that others have made. There are many great lessons that can be learned from studying the environment around us.
