In the last article I described the process of creating an online community – namely the one around the Open Connect event. As of today, I started an experiment in monetizing this community. I’m going to share the entire process here. I don’t yet know if this experiment is going to be successful or not, […]

How To Build An Online Community

What follows is a rather detailed breakdown of one of my most rewarding experiences as a digital nomad: namely, creating a real life community behind the Open Connect concept. If you want to know how to transform a personal, enriching experience, into a social experiment, if you love working from coffee shops or if you […]

I’m Not Doing Much Lately, I Mostly Am

Posted on Jul 16, 2013 in BusinessPersonal Development by

When people were asking me what I do for a living, I used to give this answer: “Well, I do whatever I can to avoid a 9 to 5 job”. In other words, I used to be an entrepreneur, trying to put my ideas into practice while still being the master of my own time. […]

As promised, we’re launching today. Being A Digital Nomad, the book, is finally available. This is my 9th book, and one that is very dear to me. It started as a side project a few months ago, based on the fact that I was constantly living as a digital nomad, but, mind you, nobody seemed […]

As many of you know, one of the businesses I’m building is about WordPress themes and it lives under the name of WPSumo. I call this WPSumo mega-theme (because it’s a mega-theme) a framework, because it gives much more functionality than just a plain theme. As a matter of fact, WPSumo is in itself a […]

Lahmacuns, Apologies And Recurring Business

Posted on Feb 25, 2013 in Business by

According to Wikipedia, a lahmacun is “a round, thin piece of dough topped with minced meat (most commonly beef and lamb) and minced vegetables and herbs including onions, tomatoes and parsley, then baked.” It’s quite tasty. Although I’ve been living for more than 40 years at the gates of the Orient, in Bucharest, that is, […]

The Rainforest Of Youth And The Machete Consequences

Posted on Dec 27, 2012 in Business by

A few months ago I started a networking event, called OpenConnect. One interesting thing about those networking events is that, if you do your job correctly, you end up with a lot of people attending. Which is kinda the whole idea of a networking event, of course. But yet another interesting thing about a popular […]

Open Connect – 14 Events Later

I hate being stuck. I hate being stuck in traffic, I hate being stuck in a job (or a project) I don’t like and, most of all, I hate being stuck in an unfulfilling relationship. Yet, that’s what happened during the last years. Well, almost all of them. I was stuck in a personal situation […]

It’s been an unusually hot summer here this year. So hot, that I could barely keep my head around my work. There was always this gentle temptation to leave everything behind and let somebody else do my job. But I couldn’t. Part of it was the fact that I enjoy what I do way too […]
