Social Media: Trust Your Struggle

This book, my biography, is my assurance to all who struggle out there to keep meeting the challenges on the way to fulfilling their dreams, and know that if I – an Indian boy from a rural sugar estate of Esperanza located on the lower South Coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa, could make it this far, others can perhaps achieve much more because the world is a place of way more increased opportunity today than it used to be when I was growing up in apartheid-era South Africa. Today, as a trainer, coach, and facilitator with a background in the automotive and lubricants industry spanning four eventful decades with some of the most prestigious international brands, I have both the bottom-up as well as the top-down view.
