And I want to share some notes from "the Dream Manager" before reading that.

the most powerful ideas are almost always the simple ones.

Machinery and computers are categorized as assets and people as liabilities.

the right people are an organization's greatest asset.

A company's purpose is to become the-best-version-of-itself.

Time for questions

I just spent the time on browsing the website.

When I started to write down my marketing proposal, I had to ask some questions.

1. What's difference between Cabrini Connections and Tutor/Mentor Connections?

I think Cabrini Connections under Tutor/Mentor Connections. If they are the same, why you keep two names?

2. Do you build up both of connections or Tutor/Mentor Connections belongs to other organizations?

3. I see your organization… Continue

Kg & Karse - The first brainstorm

We spend many times to discuss about what we should be doing, and finally we found something to do. That is make several contents like game, card, location map by using Adobe Flash.
