Over the years I have come to realise that being a first-generation entrepreneur does present a unique advantage: there is no legacy to follow and there is nothing to prove. I ventured into uncharted waters with no expectations to fulfil, except those of my own. And my expectations have never been about money. There are many of things that, if you ask me, are more essential to happiness than money. Money will take you only to a certain level, beyond which it will no longer hold any value.
