When I was younger woman, my boundaries were not healthy. I…

Multipotentiality: Why a ‘Jack of all Trades’ might just save your business

by Justine Hughes-De Freyman ‘Jack of all trades, master of none.’ is a phrase all of us have heard at one point or another, you may have even used it yourself- but how closely have you actually looked at ‘Jack’?

REDISCOVERING THE FORMER STATE OF BAHAWALPUR

Nothing is immutable in this world. Everything is subject to change. Only the mutability is everlasting. So is the case of emergence and disappearance of states and people over the planet earth.
