Being forced to lead a virtual existence – both personally and professionally, it’s no surprise that people had to make some significant lifestyle adjustments.

Humans are both neurologically and culturally adapted to the number three, because it’s the smallest number required to make [...]

From the business point of view, both strategies are absolutely valid and can be successful, if executed correctly.
