First of all, I would like to introduce myself. I am Renee Hekerman and currently, I am the chairman of Asset | Economics.

Monday morning 8AM: *BEEP BEEP BEEP*
It is Monday morning again. I am getting ready for the start of the week: the board meeting with my fellow board members. The meeting takes between two and three hours.

‘What do you want to do after school?’ This is a question they start asking you when you are very little.
