Just as I was about to turn 30 last year, I was hit by the biggest challenge of my life. Ending my 6 years love relationship with Candice, my now ex-girlfriend and still business partner.

For the past 1 year, I’ve burnt the most amount of money in my life.

It was also the year I felt the most depressed as my integrity was being doubted by many of my clients and even my closest friends.
