It’s been a few months since I posted and shared my experiences and concerns about people and entrepreneur initiatives with you here. Okay, so I’m back. These months have been tough, where the love of the people who care about me have helped me come back with the same illusion, willingness and energy that I had the 25th of November in 2014. Thank you for your support during these last months.

Today I want to present you two things: first, an initiative that I think I haven’t talked to you about yet, which I think it was about time, and the second one, and entirely related to that initiative, some thoughts about something I think it’s necessary to address with entrepreneur people: failure.

Are you ready?

International Women’s Day, Are you ready?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe 8th of March of 2015 we celebrated the International Women’s Day. According to the United Nations “this year’s theme, “Empowering Women – Empowering Humanity: Picture It!” envisions a world where each woman and girl can exercise her choices, such as participating in politics, getting an education, having an income, and living in societies free from violence and discrimination. In 2015, International Women’s Day will highlight the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, a historic roadmap signed by 189 governments 20 years ago that sets the agenda for realizing women’s rights”. That is one of the reasons why the last 8th of March we started celebrating a special day, a day which has a WOMAN name, a woman who is ENTREPRENEUR, brave, committed, determined, inspired, passionate, dreamer and eagered.   Do you know anyone like that?
