With a wedding, burglary, part-time job on Texel and the planning to move partially to Bulgaria, I certainly did not sit still in recent months. On October 48 I had my last working day at SnelStart as a content marketer and now I am working again 100% for Flowering. That means less steadiness and no steady income, but also more freedom and more time for Bloeise!
I want more business blogging, as I said before Emerce and DutchCowboys do, but for companies. Content marketing is starting to get a firm hold along with inbound marketing, and for this I can perfectly use my writer qualities. By writing, I automatically delve into all kinds of topics, and then I share that knowledge more with all kinds of workshops. I am now positioning myself as a freelance business blogger, for example in the form of a freelance IT editor.
Working from abroad soon it will not be useful for new contacts: you often want to see each other before you do business. And even though I will be in the Netherlands on a regular basis - that is how I keep my house - it remains difficult if you are just back in Bulgaria and you call an interesting party. My solution: working with partners, such as smeders Media from Julianadorp, where I am deployed as a freelancer for their customers. The client receives a total solution, such as a website with texts or an advertisement with a press release, and I immediately stream in at work level. In addition, it will Handbook for World Citizens from Esther Jacobs certainly help: in this she covers all the challenges that you as digital nomad come across.
With 100% Bloeise my private work balance also gets better: the evenings no longer automatically become working evenings, quite important if you are just married! I also see more and more sounds about the new way of working, such as this video by Trendwatcher Adjiedj Bakas the Future of WORK. In this way he sees a future where we only have Work 3 days, and also doing volunteer work for 2 days. Being busy outside for example.
Every employee knows: no job is certain anymore. As an employee, you are responsible for your job satisfaction: you always keep developing, you know what you are worth in the market and you also look critically at your employer. Employers must do more to bind valuable staff. Such as Ricardo Semler from Semco in Mexico, it does it completely differently: you determine your working hours, your work and your salary. Radical? Yes. Does it work everywhere? No. But it does reflect the big shift that we can expect: everyone becomes an entrepreneur. At least I'm already on my way!
