Today, Ofer is very happy in his life position but he defiantly feels he can and want to do more. He is asking himself the right questions; What makes him happy and what makes him less happy, why he started and why he is doing what he is doing. By having those answers Ofer is connecting the dots and working to find the next exciting challenges that will fill his day to day with happiness and Meaning.
