Ga je dan meteen van start met je nieuwe bedrijf of zijn er andere strategische startplaatsen die je op termijn een stevig voordeel kunnen geven?

Harry Potter v.0.1

Just recently, I discovered I can do MAGIC! Yet I’m not expecting a Hogwarts’ letter anytime soon. Although it may sound as if my magic dropped out of the sky (as would a Hogwarts’ letter), unfortunately it didn’t. I received years of training before I realised what I’m capable of. With my kind of magic, there’s also no hocus-pocus going on, not even a tiny “Wingardium Leviosa”. I was rather disappointed when I figured that out. Now the muggles will never understand what I can do. All those years of training, to what end? I just wish I had a wand to show for my talents.
