Ihor: « Each of us has experienced such moments in life when we made wishes when we thought about our mission in this life. Some have a plan to build a “missile” for its super idea, but it requires large resources, a lot of time, confidentiality, and not the fact that such a mission will be successful. Then someone chooses a “civilian plane” for his trip such as the Boeing 747 or the Airbus A380, which already has 40 to 400 passengers aboard, and it is possible that along the way will have to make several more transfers from the company to the company to reach its place appointment. Such a flight is quite safe, but still comfort depends on the weather conditions in the corporation and the possible legal turbulence in the state.
And someone builds his own “aircraft” on the prototype of the military (fast and maneuverable) so that the very adverse conditions (general uncertainty) ensured its competitiveness on the way to achieving the goals. Therefore, assemble your professional crew who will share your ideas with you so that each of your intentions to start your own business (start-up) becomes what will ensure your movement, lead you to success, bring you closer to your dreams. Make your mission successful!”.
