Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
After more than 10 years working for luxury international brands, I decided to launch in 2011 the first International webzine based in Switzerland. It was a way to share my passions and to talk to many people with freedom of speech.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
I am always surprised to see how brands get in contact with me, sometimes I wonder even how they get my email and phone number! My principle is that I never contact brands for collaboration. They contact me. Therefore, I keep my freedom of speech.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Keep the focus on what really interests you and do not get distracted by non-important things. Keep your passion alive and everything should be fine.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
The beginning of the years 2000 was an amazing period for online journalism, especially in Paris, France. I met several people who decided to launch their blogs, their webzines and some of them got an amazing success. This period has inspired me to launch my webzine as well. I thought and still think there are unlimited possibilities.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
Yes, every time I can, I try to talk about young people launching their businesses in order to help them start. Big brands do not have a necessary need for help, but young artists and entrepreneurs do need a hand.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“Some people see things as they are and say why, I dream things that never were and say why not” – JFK 1963. This quote shows that everything is possible. If you can dream it, you can do it.
