Entrepreneurship, people skills, speaking skills, movies; these were our usual topics of discussion. But what’s all that without a little knowledge about some amazing stuff?

So, we decided to have posts which you can read to find out about unbelievable facts. And this is going to be a thing on TenFigures every now and then, starting now.

Every time we gather enough awesome facts, we will make a post about it and publish it here. We’re calling it “The 10 Enlightenments”.

So, here’s our pilot.
