Well,I do agree with you 100%. And what I personally feel about this issue is that the lack of mentorship is the actual problem. Another piece of cake is that young hustlers of this great soil just wake up on a fine morning,get an idea of owning a business and after a couple of days,they come up with their business cards with their name and company’s logo on it.

Just filled with all that glamour and entitlement thing.
