Journey from a living room to 1.5M users worldwide

10,855 views

Published on

We are living in the "era" of start-ups and business incubators where individuals with an idea in their arsenal are desperate for an investment. I would like to share a story about the journey with a different path taken. A story of what it means to grow from one guy in a living room to a stable and successful business without a dime of external investment. We are small yet powerful - nine people are taking good care of more than 1.5M users worldwide.

  • This is Dr. Wakina’s season, the season he restores joy, peace and prosperity to broken relationships/marriages. He is the one and only spiritual healing doctor that has the power to do unimaginable things with his email:- dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com. With big faith and trust I have on Doctor I got results 7days after some inspirational spell cast that brought my husband back and made him realize his mistake for leaving us because of misunderstanding we usually had because of his affairs with his concubine. He realized after the spell that no woman is prettier than me or any woman that can love, care and satisfy him like I do. He realized he has a beautiful and promising family. I was not afraid contacting Dr. Wakina because I know he is one of the genuine spell doctors that can bring back my better half without negative effects. I am exited you read this wonderful testimony from a happy wife and mother. I pray and wish unending joy, peace and prosperity in your relationship/marriage… cheers!
