Is it true that opportunities are everywhere and all over around us? Is it true that the current global uncertainties and turbulences have eroded opportunities? This book equips the reader with the tools to create, spot, seize, exploit and maximize opportunities. The book underscores the fact that when opportunities are not coming your way, it is your responsibility to build doors for them to knock on. If you have been careless with opportunities, the book prepares you to overcome regret over missed opportunities and to learn from the bleeps and blunders of the past and start chasing new prospects with energy.
