    Congratulations and thank you it is always a pleasure for Cuca and me searching you when you are playing.

    Here in Spain we are so bad, our goverment is so disastrous, our life is so gray and blue for millions who haven´t any
    employment for years, that our sportmen are the unique satisfaction.

    A mentor is great! If you can’t find your way on a business, look for a mentor to get feedback and guidance. To be successful on a business is not difficult, all you have to do is to take care against clever people who like to get benefits easily. They are everywhere watching the time you get out of attention. Don’t give up to try a shot!
