The new style is work for yourself, earn for yourself and own your work. Why not?

Don’t be surprised if you get to spend the much awaited weekends at a startup exhibition or a startup workshop. Make sure to accompany your husband to those exhibits and seminars. It gives a sense of involvement. But that need not be the case every time, take your time for entertainment too.
