Crafting OnSpot’s Ethos from Pages of Wisdom from Silent Mentors

Updated: Oct 12, 2023

I spend 30 minutes to an hour every single day reading a book on top of the other learning materials I consume whether formal or informal. I have read each of the below books at least twice with "Think and Grow Rich" as my most read of all time. I have consumed it probably at least 15 times and I treat it as a text book with an annual review every January.

In the silence of my study, the pages of numerous books have whispered wisdom, insights, and tales of triumphs and tribulations. Each book that found a home on my shelf has, in an unspoken manner, woven itself into the ethos of OnSpot, guiding us through a path where every step resonated with learned wisdom.

Hi omer! I’m just asking about our government social benefits that haven’t been remitted We’ve been deducted for 7 months, but it seems like nothing has been remitting I’ve already obtained a clearance, but there’s still no contribution. I’ve asked Ren and Jaja, and they told me to ask Eve, but Eve isn’t responding. We have something called quick payment here where we can make the contributions ourselves, but they’re not responding to our questions. Carmila
