Funding, Office Accomodation, Logistics to bring out the best of us.
Personally, I gave up on the dream because I thought it was not going to grow without all the help.
My immediate friends and family expected me to work in a corporate organisation and frankly it seems impossible, I never seem to get those jobs. I am pressured to find a job that pays me monthly.
