Sofro-what? SofroBilbao

The other day I told you that I was going to introduce you to a woman who knew how to adapt to the circumstances and to re-create herself, or maybe I should say benefit from the opportunities life and her profession have given her to start new paths. I’m also going to talk about “something” that at least I didn’t know before this summer when I had the opportunity to spend a pleasant time with her.

Our protagonist of today is Angéline Danel and “my” discovery is the sophrology. Do you want to know more? Keep reading. (more…)

And you, what do you want to be when you grow up?

I’ve been keeping the video that I want to share with you for a long time. It’s a video that starts out with a simple question which for some is not easy to answer:

What do you want to be when you grow up?

The video is about education, creativity, learning, freedom, innovation, hackers, school, personal interests, motivation, risks, emotion, opportunities and self-discovery, among others. All of that from the thoughts of a ten-year-old boy.

Some of you might think that this has nothing to do with entrepreneurship. On the contrary, I think it has a lot in common with starting new actions, new paths, new projects and new challenges. It is also linked to many of the values assigned to the entrepreneur and to the education of future generations.

Here you have it. I hope you like it.

I wish you happy summer holidays.

IZANSDANCE

Some days ago, searching for new initiatives related to entrepreneurship and culture, a series of videos of a woman caught my eye. Her name is María, she is from Málaga, she is an entrepreneur and has very clear ideas. One of her achievements has been creating a dance school with its own methodology: IZANSDANCE.

Many consider it a pioneering dance school in Andalusia. Directed by María Sánchez Izquierdo, IZANSDANCE is a dance academy that rose up at the end of 2010 and that combines many disciplines connected to the world of dance: children’s dance, contemporary dance, ballet, belly dancing, jazz, dance therapy, yoga, pilates, stretching and dancegym, in addition to many activities, courses and resources you can find on it.

Contributing to the social transformation from social entrepreneurship
