WORD OF MOUTH?
INSPIRE & INFORM
To e-commerce or not?
E-commerce: if you've thought about working in e-commerce, a good place to start to understand what it is all about and what it involves can be found in this complete guide by Shopify.
Dropshipping: is a common process used in e-commerce businesses offering a lower overhead, but of course do your homework as there are always two sides to the story.
Remember everything takes time, there are no instant rewards. This person's experience is insightful about taking this path.
Health: need a massage but worried about cost? Find a massage school. The students are required to practice, so many schools offer appointments to the public at half the cost.
Work and Life: Feeling overwhelmed or don't know where to start? Write to yourself. Start by writing the last thing you thought about and see where it takes you.
BITE-SIZE (MOSTLY) LEARNING
Read: "tech is about people, not technology" an article about approaches to bringing more women into tech. Written from a father's perspective.
Watch: sometimes it's hard to choose one thing to do and that's ok.
Listen: if we could be taught from a young age how to communicate to each other as explained by Brené Brown on the Chase Jarvis Show, so many misunderstanding would be avoided and fewer negative self-chat.
BERLIN LIVING SNIPPETS
While you wait for WOM to open its doors, here are some good locations to work, read and write from:
* Cafe Ohne Titel - cozy space, large front windows
* Sankt Oberholz - three different cafe locations
* Prachtwerk - great space, but patchy wifi, good for merging a late work day and an evening with live music
* K-Fetish - only a few tables can be used for laptops, but sometimes it's good to be forced to unplug.
