Maastricht Entrepreneurship Week

Two years ago, I joined Maastricht Centre for Entrepreneurship (MC4E) for their MEWeek’16 (Maastricht Entrepreneurship Week 2016) as a Marketing Assistant. I was in charge of the event’s social media presence.

This experience has thought me a lot of valuable business lessons, that teamwork only works if you have 100% trust in your teammates and their abilities, and that business relationships can come from the most unexpected places – and you should never stop networking, because the bigger your network, the more business opportunities you can have!

Dear ladies, gentleman, kids, young-adults, and mainly friends and family (because I know you will be my most frequent readers at first),

I have been wanting to create a blog for quite some time now, but never really found the time to; until, my boss told me to take 2 hours per week and work on my personal development. I though, “what better way to not only document, but also prove my newly-acquired skills”! Here is a short overview of what you could expect from my blog:

  • Mondays: TIPS. Mainly work-related tips and suggestions.
  • Wednesdays: BOOKS. On these days, I shall be writing about book, short summaries and give you book  recommendations on topics such as: self-help, non-fiction, etc.
  • Thursdays: TRAVEL. I always have and always will be a true traveler at heart, so I will not keep my knowledge to myself and share everything travel-related with my readers.
  • Fridays: PHOTOGRAPHY. I love taking photos and I love sharing them with the world. What more can I say?
  • Sundays: ACCOMPLISHMENTS. these will be my new favorite days of the week, because I will be sharing my accomplishments on these days!

So, I would like to officially welcome you to my journey of self-improvement; one hour, one self-improvement book, one DIY-project and one coffee at a time!

Greetings from cloudy Cologne,

Marina B.
