Three months have gone quickly.
As the majority of people taking part in this exchange program, I would have liked to extend my stay. There is no opportunity unfortunately, no funds available for that, as lots of young entrepreneurs like me have asked to have their own chance as well.
What next? It’s time to get out there and start my own project.
That’s risky. And that’s scary. But that’s exciting.
In the last few weeks, I’ve worked in order to close all open projects, I’ve met my clients for saying goodbye to them, same with my colleagues.
I’ve kick-started the ISO accreditation process for one of my clients, by getting quotes from different companies and by training the team on the process itself, on requirements, input and output. For the same client, I’ve drafted some documentation addressed to investors, for which I’ve used my writing skills, as well as my language and financial ones.
I’ve taken part in a few meetings related to tourism, which is a strategic business area here in Mallorca. I’ve met experts of the sector and I’ve had the chance to listen to their highly inspiring conversations.
I’ve lived these three months intensely, trying my best to get the most out of work, out of the city, out of myself; I’ve learned and I’ve given a valuable contribution to the projects I’ve been involved in. I’ve acquired new skills and experienced working in a different business environment.
I trust all this will contribute to make my skeleton stronger, in business and in life.
