“Believe in yourself and build self-confidence. If you are not confident enough, you’ll break like a twig the first time you face an obstacle. Whatever you want to achieve, there will be countless barriers questioning your competences. The only way to get through them is by being confident enough that you can and will.”

“As a small business, it is really important to identify the roles that are crucial to the business. This will provide the most leverage to the team, since budget is always a factor. As a lean team, we have worked with contractors for projects or initiatives that were time sensitive or needed a certain level of expertise. That has been really helpful in terms of scaling the business in a cost-efficient manner.”

“The most obvious but also most “mysterious” tip in some way is: believe in your dream. For me, this meant to “keep going”, even if you sometimes stumble. It means, you get up the next morning and do what you know worked the day before, whilst also fixing the mistakes you made yesterday by being open-minded to compromise to reach your desired result, eventually.”

“I wanted to bring the people to discover the ZOOBEETLE Paris’ brand in its genuine environment - in Parisian decor with its French art-de-vivre’s flair. Chateau Zoobeetle becomes a destination, not just a boutique to buy premium leather goods. We worked on a surprising yet unique retail experience that lets the client choose between shopping, having a drink, looking around or having it all at the same time!”

“I was frustrated from wasting money on a number of wellness retreats that despite being expensive and high quality, didn't offer the results they promised. I decided to do something about it and created a wellness travel booking portal and online publication that only works with the best wellness retreats in the world that have been vetted and reviewed by certified health and fitness professionals.”
