May's reflection

I think I have been trying to prove that being myself is okay since I can remember. I have been resisting being what others want me to be for a long time.

The paradox is that one starts assuming to know who one is just to discover a bit later that oneself, beyond the surface, is always different.

Being okay with myself is a lifelong process, and it is not a recipe for happiness. It is a decision.

I decided not to comply with what others tell me to be, to accept my weaknesses, and encourage my strengths. Like every other decision in life, that decision has a cost and a benefit.

Are you willing to pay the price of being yourself?

If you decided to follow your own path, to live with freedom, you have chosen a way of purpose and courage.

It is okay to be who you are becoming, even more, when the world seems against you.

If entrepreneurship is a synonym for resourcefulness in the face of change or adversity, then I am an entrepreneur. In other words, entrepreneurship is helping me to become more purposeful, more courageous, more adventurous, and more connected with others. I want my legacy to be a story about learning to become a freer person.


New mentoring sessions

I just finished to organize the three main mentoring sessions I offer.

  • If you feel drained and looking to improve your energy levels, choose the green circle.
  • If you are planing to start, or if you recently started your new venture and you still feel insecure, choose the orange circle.
  • If you see the value of sharing a a workin space with likeminded people, instead of working from home all the time, you might want to start a Coworking space, choose the yellow circle to learn how I did it.
