Yes, this is just me these days and first of all, I don’t write this post for “sorry” and “you will be OK”. Please, next!

Carrefour, nouveau temple du “Made in Cameroon”?

Petit blanc ce soir. Là tout de suite, le sujet a du mal à sortir (rires). Ok. J’y viens. J’ai (ENFIN) fait un tour chez Carrefour Market, il y a quelques jours.

One year as an entrepreneur and one year in the family business. Looking at it now, it was a quite crazy challenge: five months- pregnant, taking on two new jobs, one in a field where I had only limited expertise (custom broker and forwarding agent) and another where though I had the technical skills, I needed to manage everything (marketing consulting). Sexy, challenging on paper. In real life, essentially challenging. Below, five business tips learnt from this epic year: Continue reading “One Year Ago, I became an entrepeneur..”
