A few days ago, a friend of mine told me: “ I do so much side activities that HR are used to tell me with a little smile that I can seem unstable”.

I asked her why she does all these activities?

She immediately replied: “ Because I like to discover new things and, believe it or not, I get better in other unrelated fields cause I learn quicker !” for sure, the more you know the more you can relate to.

I woke one day with an idea, create a playful universe accessible to everyone and share knowledge about our digital era (The “I have a Dream” moment). Laughable we might say, ideas are worthless, to create value we need to build, but how to build?
