This speech is very close to my heart, as it...

A recent article in Forbes noted that esports is a fast-growing industry and was valued at over 1 billion dollars in 2020.

How I Utilized My Network to Find Success

As someone who is perpetually busy, I get asked quite often how I manage my time between my responsibilities.
