Our lives have been shaken for almost a year now by an invader that doesn’t seem to go away. Coronavirus changed a lot of things in our society and in our way to interact with each other. Three lockdowns, wearing face-covering, and a bunch of restrictions makes our interactions more difficult.
Still, communication is based on the link we bond with each other, the connection, the listening, the understanding. How to take up the challenge of better communication in a context of a global pandemic?
Today I would like to share some thoughts about living abroad. 2 years ago I moved to the UK driven by an appeal for an experience abroad – being fully immerse in a new country, a new culture and a new language. Little did I know what I would become along the way.
Often, we hear that everyone doesn’t have what it takes to be an entrepreneur. As if some of us were entrepreneurs deep down in their genes and others are destined to be employees. Is it true, though? Is it inborn or learned? Are we entrepreneur in our soul or do we become it along the way?
Today, I want to share about being a young mother and an entrepreneur, and the challenge it represents every day. More and more women are going for entrepreneurship. According to a recent study of the INSEE about the creation of businesses in France in 2018, women have launched 39% of the businesses – they represent 4 entrepreneurs on 10. Being a business woman is, in itself, a challenge, but when children are added to the equation, it’s even more challenging. How to blossom both in our roles of mother and business woman? Is it possible to square the two away?
In these lockdown times, where we have no other choice than staying home, and where many are working from home, everything seems to be paused. Every morning we are wondering: “What am I going to do today?” Some of us write To Do Lists to stay focused, others take things as they come. However, whether you are self-employed or an employee working from home, one thing more tempting is taking over: procrastination.
In my previous post, I shared about the imposter syndrome. Now, I would like to talk about it through another angle, to encourage you to trust yourself and to overcome the imposter syndrome – especially when it arises in discomfort when you feel not experienced enough, yet completely capable.
Have you ever heard about the imposter syndrome? You know, this feeling we have when we doubt our skills, when we consider that we are not enough experienced and illegitimate towards our prospects or clients – as an “imposter”, a “fraud”, ready to be exposed. Today, I want to share my experience as an entrepreneur and my fight against this imposter syndrome.
It’s been a year since Salted Limón has been created. Time flies, right?
Entrepreneurship is a daily life adventure, with ups and downs, challenges,
deceptions but also a lot of joy and surprises! After one year, it’s time for
me to emerge from the shadows and to reveal the face behind Salted Limón…
