THE OBJECTIVE AND RESULTS OF HELPING OTHERS

The purpose and goal of this website to share with people who need to find information and link them up with the necessary network and cut down of the time wasted in looking for some.

Sometimes, when we need to have some information or solution, we do not seem to know where to get it, one of my aims here is to provide the missing link so that people can make use of this and hopefully can help them n their search of whatever they require or solution they are looking for.

Most of the times, people approached me and asked where and how to get certain things done and whether I know of any ideas to solve certain issues, even on the career of their kids.

Learning from people who have been there will be better than trying to re-invent the wheel and wasting precious time in re-inventing the wheel.

We only live once in this world, hence it is important we can make use of whatever resources we come across
