The three principles “to get rich”

Answering to some people who asked me… yes, I’m still here, but it’s been hard months and, this time, I haven’t been able to write as much as I would have liked. Besides, I remind you that this coming November 2024 I will celebrate 10 years of this blog, it wouldn’t seem right to stop right now, don’t you think?

Today I want to share with you a video from TEDxAlcoi, by Rafa Fergom. I watched it a few days ago and I liked what he tells and how he tells it. Rafa shares with us the three principles to get rich, get richer, or just, the three principles of social entrepreneurship.

I don’t know if you know TED (I highly recommend them). They are short talks and this one that I share with you today, could not be otherwise. I encourage you to watch the video and listen to Rafa’s words. Among other things because you will discover that sharing is the best way to compete.

Here is a summary of the three principles:

Principle #1

  • Helping is a very good strategy to transcend.
  • It is better giving to share (love), and not to receive (to expect something in return), because this way of giving activates the flame of entrepreneurship, uncertainty, creativity, growth and development.

Principle #2

  • We should do what makes us happy, useful and passionate, because from that way of doing, in return, we will receive something.

Principle #3

  • Let’s do something bearing in mind the collective benefit, making other people feeling useful, recognized and valued.
  • Let’s believe in the strength of the community. If something is not good for everyone, it is not good for others either.

Thank you, Rafa, for sharing your story and for reminding us that  the person is not rich because he/she has more money than anyone else.

I’ll be back soon, I promise.

Thank you for still being there.


To enhance the personal development of young people and children, focus, above all, on their emotional well-being and mental health, a few months ago the educational project amplificARTE (amplify+ART) was born, in which music, as a cross-cutting discipline, and education merged.

It is a collaboration of young teachers from the Generación Docentes (Generation Teachers program) of the Fundación Princesa de Girona together with young artists from Art House & Abbey Road Academy. An explosive mix that, as it could not be any other way, is having the success it deserves.

To describe the initiative, I propose the challenge of turning the following group of words into meaningful paragraphs, watch the video I share with you and learn more about the project through information on their website.

Group of words: purpose, challenge, music, education, values, emotional well-being, happiness, youth, children, emotion management, mental health, reflection, dialogues, enjoyment, new language, generation of teachers, role model, leaders, educational classrooms, paradigm shift, competence development, group and individual work (personalized), impact, educational centers, social institutions.

It’s your turn. Enjoy February.

The ingredients of success

Let me tell you that, as you know, there’s not just one definition of success and that today I won’t share its DEFINITION with you either. What I am going to do is share with all of you some of the conclusions we got to last Saturday the 26th of March at the event celebrated by Desafío más, a non-profit organization I gladly belong to. I think they will help you understand what success is.

Please, keep reading. (more…)

Have you ever “fallen in love” with a garment and when you come back for it, it’s gone? Well, that has happened to me many times and I must admit that I usually think that I’m sure it “happens” because something “better” is waiting for me. But when that happens to me with the same brand on more than one occasion, then I say to myself, okay, Arantza, this can’t keep happening, buy it NOW. Well, that happened to me with the brand that I bring you today, which has three entrepreneurial women behind it who are very close to me, more than I thought.

Here they are.


The breakfast burger

On Wednesday the 3rd of June, the second session of the live interviews cycle of Inspira STEAM at home took place, whose aim is to give visibility to female scientists and technologists. I have already talked to you about Inspira STEAM before, but not about today’s protagonist. She is an 18-year-old researcher, inventor, and entrepreneur, who is currently studying her second year of Medicine.

Do you want to know a bit more about this woman? Keep reading. (more…)
