Wisdom Vitamins of 2013

Every Monday, a CEO Clubs Member shares his/her favorite quote with the rest of the Club. This Wisdom Vitamin has a motivational and dynamic impact at the start of each new week! 
The project was initiated in 2013 by Danor Ionescu, a CEO Clubs Member in Romania. Ever since, all our Mondays are brightened by diverse inspirational quotes.
