A Podcast Recording and Beyond

A Podcast Recording and Beyond

Earlier today I was the guest of the GROEN podcast by Femke Cornelissen and Maarten Goet. The recording was fun and solid, I really enjoyed every moment of it. However, when Femke sent me this photo later, it reminded me a thousand other things from the past 24 hours… Beyond that smile on my face there are so much that…

Embrace the sunset

Embrace the sunset

When you run a business, lead a professional community, are a mother of three, and juggle with a thousand other things in your life – sometimes it’s super hard to do things that fill you with energy. You know it would be great to read a few chapters. To drink a cup of coffee/tea slowly. To walk.…

Connecting with myself

Connecting with myself

My children are all away, and I have a few days for myself. The house is empty, only me and my thoughts… Sometimes it feels good to have some time to reflect, retreat, and recharge. I believe it’s good not only for me, but also for my children. When I’m recharged, they have a balanced,…

Sunflowers and hot showers

Sunflowers and hot showers

About a month ago I was in Manila for work, and also had a weekend for sightseeing there. While it was a great, shocking, and eye-opening experience, in some ways it also reminded me of my own childhood. Our situation back then was not as bad as some places I saw in Manila, but still……

Expect the Unexpected

Expect the Unexpected

Being a mother of three children, running a business, having a husband who travels every other week, and trying to fit my own travel schedule into this lovely mess while having time for myself, too… is a HUGE challenge. If something, I’ve learned something, especially since I became a mother almost seventeen years ago: there’s never…

Raising Multi-Lingual Children

Raising Multi-Lingual Children

When I was a child, my biggest (very ambitious!) dream was to be able to travel the world. However, besides the financial background my parents had, there was another problem: we did not speak any languages besides Hungarian, and we did not even had a chance. Given that I was a child in the communist era,…

Hello Netherlands!

Hello Netherlands!

Warning – This is going to be a VERY personal post. If you know me, you know that I was born and living my whole life in Hungary (until now – see below). A country that is beautiful indeed, but has been having crazy challenges in the past years. As always, I try to avoid sharing any…

How I Got Started in IT

How I Got Started in IT

Everyone has his/her own story of life, and I’d like to share mine here. I was born as the first child of a very poor family, living in Eastern Hungary. My mother is a seamstress, my father is a metal worker. I inherited my father’s skills at problem solving; he had been always good in…

Making decisions…

Making decisions…

Sometimes everything starts with a decision. And sometimes something ends with a decision. Sometimes decisions are made to change something. And sometimes decisions are made to consciously avoind something. What really fascinates me is how people react to the decisions you make. Small or life-changing decisions, the reaction of other people can be very different. Some simply ignore…
