    He who actually works at home like a donkey at the behest of his spouse does basically his job like an ass as an employee in the business house. He could neither be creative like imaginative/ inventive/ innovative nor ever effective like positive/proactive/productive, but can easily endure every humiliation in the private organization and so often stays for over ten years at the single workplace. He spends time with a single objective to make merely money in the company only for his wife throughout his life.

  4. Gennadiy Goldberg:

They’ve gone from 1% to where we are now, so it’s certainly quite a bit already.

  5. Liang Ming:
