lost five cars in a year or two, found the direction of entrepreneurship
in fact, I am sitting on the bike ofo starting point is very simple, that is, I lost a total of five years in the University of the bike in. In the University, there is no bike, do not ride a bike is very inconvenient, so I took my little partners to consider, how to solve the problem of losing the car.
