I fear the justice of God, who after my death will judge my thoughts, words and deeds committed during my earthly life, and the sudden death of my beloved wife. Other than that, I am not afraid of anything or anyone. You may wonder: "How is this possible? After all, a so-called normal person is afraid of many things, e.g. losing a job, betrayal by a spouse, contracting a serious illness, war, etc."
Just this month, I am reading a book by Paweł Tkaczyk entitled 'Zakamarki marki' (published in Polish by Helion SA). The book is full of valuable content on branding, image building, etc. The subtitle encourages you to read it, it reads: "Things you might not have known, forgotten or overlooked when building your brand" (translation from Polish).
