Available jobs are now inversely proportional to the population of qualified hands, therefore, one has to be creative with … Continue reading The Entrepreneur Life

They took tags of the very expensive jewellery and placed it on very cheap jewellery and vice-versa. When they were done, they left taking nothing with them.
