You just graduated from university or college and you think: “Let’s do this! Let’s do business, make big money and go straight to the top! The sky is the limit! I am going to change the world. I am enthusiastic, willing to learn, flexible, competent …” Well, guess what, every young graduate thinks that. You are not special. I can assure you, I was like that too (and still am a bit).

Zoef….

26 months…you would think 2 years is quite a long time. Well, apparently it isn’t. The past 26 months have really flown by, as if being in the most amazing cockpit of one of the fastest airplanes in the world, the SR-71 blackbird.
