“The world is rapidly evolving. Introducing state-of-the-art solutions that make lives full of convenience and ease, this era of innovation is leading to a significant shift across almost all facets of life. While this is something to be joyous about, there is one thing that even modernisation and innovation have failed to change – mindsets.
“Even in this modern age, people worldwide still believe in the once-popular phrase, ‘jack of all trades, master of none’. Leonardo da Vinci, Eleanor Roosevelt, Benjamin Franklin, and Aristotle are globally known personalities whose success stories have travelled through generations.
“These are just a few examples of successful multi potentialities who have made significant contributions to a variety of different fields in the world. Unfortunately, despite having countless examples of individuals with diverse portfolios and multiple successful careers, people have turned a blind eye toward people who aim for multiple careers.
“This is where Michael Ede, the man who dared to dream, comes into the picture. Serial entrepreneur, football agent, philanthropist, blogger, investor, and mentor. Michael Ede is determined to change these worn-out mindsets with his tales of success.”
