What constitutes to 100% in life? The question has been abiding in the minds of masses since the early days. From a strictly mathematical viewpoint, what equates to 100%, the surfeited maximum of our lives? What does it mean to give more than 100%? Ever ponder about those people who say they giving more than 100%? We all have been in situations where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 101%?
If the alphabets A-Z, are represented by the numbers 1-26 accordingly, the attribute HARDWORK would add up to 98%; KNOWLEDGE, 96%; ATTITUDE would score 100%. So what about 101%? What constitutes to fulfilling 101% of our lives? Well, take a look at the LOVE OF GOD. By adding up the numbers represented by the alphabets. LOVE OF GOD would score 101%. That’s how far it would bring you.

As always, entrepreneurship requires hard work – as it isn’t easy for this particular métier. “Sexism is displayed prominently in this industry.

It is breaking into the overseas market as well, commendable for a small-to-medium enterprise.
“We had been able to enter HDB projects, attaining recognition from Governmental boards,” replied Miss Tan, who is very proud of this very achievement. ‘‘Entrepreneurship is all about determination. To do what you desire.
