I define myself by being an inventor at times, an innovator at work, an entrepreneur in the future.
Once upon a time, when I was a little child, whenever someone asked me what I would like to become when I grow up, I always replied:
Growing into a teenager, I started to have an inventions notebook. Well, for most of them, I found out they got implemented, even if I did not know about their implementation. Embarrassing and disappointing, right? Not actually, because that way of thinking was always a part of myself.
I have been marching towards being a highly paid IT professional in the meantime. It took over almost all my free time. It also enlarged my knowledge and made me think globally by working day by day in an online field with people from all countries, cultures, religions and time zones. Many coworkers tend to value my opinion, trust my recommendations and follow my advice. I hope you are going to do the same!
One of my core skills in the work field is viewing various topics from a different perspective. I guess I have always been an innovator, experimenter and designer. Even if it was for a simple home activity or a work project, imagining future ways of using existing devices, technologies, and methodologies, or thinking of what could replace them, was my favourite activity. If you are interested in more work-related details check my Linkedin profile.
With all that, my current job does not fully define me. For example, when I was finishing my Master degree in Telecommunications and Computer Science (2006 – 2007) I said, ‘If I had the money for it, I would invest right now in providing new Cloud Services’. I have not done it. Instead, I became a lead cloud solutions architect in the meantime. In 2013, I started working with a good friend on a discovery document for implementing the ‘Follow me’ feature on drones. 2 years later DJI and Yuneec released that feature to the market in their new products. We had no idea they were working to implement it. This site started as a way of expressing these ideas in writing. It also makes me think of more innovative ideas.
By now, I gathered enough experience to start my startup. I have not done it so far, but have not given up on the idea either. For the time being, I prefer to consult, train and coach others. Other times, I take a fresh new look at solving their projects problems. I do apply my forward-thinking and entrepreneurial approach to the stock market, but that is a different topic.
Why am I sharing these ideas? What if someone else stills my ideas? Well, that is not the point. The point is the beauty of the idea. Think about it! If I had been working to implement and bring it to the market, I wouldn’t have published it without a business plan and a good marketing plan. Besides, I know I can always come with a new and better idea. Standard disclaimer applies: If you get inspired and build a 1 billion dollar startup by reading this site, remember me with 0,1% of it. That makes it a million-dollar idea, right?
I have the same sharing approach when it comes to stock market investing ideas. I share them and debate them with a group of friends on groups. Why not? A market is a place for everyone to make money. The same applies to professional knowledge. One of the core values that I try to transmit to the people I coach is: If you know something, teach others to do it too! This way you will not be the only one being able to do it, and you will have enough time to learn something new and perhaps even advance in your career.
In case you want to discuss further one of the ideas, or you want me to further work on the design of it, feel free to contact me using the form below. I’m sure we could agree on the terms of a consultancy contract, or if the right spark happens, we can even work on building it together.
