Live your vision, no apologies, no regrets.

I’m an entrepreneurial soul, avid fan of unleashing ideas that can change the world for the better. Passionate about people, their empowerment and their well-being. Curious how our world is what it is. Intrigued by our economy and the role it plays in the big theatre of life.

This is my story, still incomplete. I’m writing it because some people asked me to share it. It serves as a reminder of the victories I had, the defeats I suffered and above all, the lessons they brought.

It has been over two years since my last post…

Growing older comes with a nice benefit: things become clearer, easier also. Knowing what truly drives you, beyond the veil of expectations, insecurities and limitations, is truly liberating.

I look around and I see many people who are stuck, stuck in a system that doesn’t truly support their quality of life. Reflecting upon those things that truly matter has helped me pinpoint the issues we are struggling with.

Helping those who are stuck and improve the quality of our lives by upgrading that system for the better, that’s the journey I embarked on.
