Want to support Talented-U?
I decided to make all of the content available for free to all of you, my dear freelancers, as you go on this journey of discovery and growth. It does, however, require time and resources. So, if you are finding my work useful and want to support me in creating more of such content — it will be much appreciated by me and (guess what?) — also by the freelancers that are helping me deliver it here. If you're not sure where to start — the price of a coffee, a lunch or a visit to a shrink are some of the benchmarks available to you.
"The circle of life" as one king said in a cartoon.

My sincere thanks for your support! Anton
