Power Hungry. Hot Streak. And all that jazz. You’ll probably have no idea what those things mean unless you’re an avid player of Minion Rush. A very good one that is.
One thing games like these teach us is that anyone can achieve if they try hard enough.
In this episode of Be a Leader, James is encouraged by Hyma and Emily to work hard to achieve a new high score.

Who would have thought that Lin became a successful story, teaching us how perseverance pays off all the years of tears and effort invested into doing what we love to do.
