by / ⠀Entrepreneurship Travel / May 30, 2014

I’ve been on the road for the past two years, slow traveling and jumping from one startup hub to another. It started in Chile, then Singapore and now Saigon. It’s always interesting meeting local entrepreneurs in different parts of the world and talking to them about their startups. It facilitates an exchange of knowledge and you can learn a lot along the way. About six months ago, I…

André Around the World: Lessons in WillPower from Tanzania

by / ⠀Entrepreneurship Travel / May 1, 2014

I loved being in Tanzania. It gave me a very strong perspective about ‘social businesses’ and the so-called “third sector”. The concept of entrepreneurship is now giving its first steps here. It was illegal to make private businesses until the mid 80’s, besides the government was extremely centered… so, accordingly to what I’ve been told, the truth is that people’s mentality (especially the older generations) is still a…

It’s like you’re tiptoeing a thin guardrail on the side of a bridge. You’ve been to this edge before, over and over again in your mind. Calculating the possibilities, pondering the rationality. The water is dark below. You can’t see the bottom, but you’re pretty sure it’s deep. There has never been anything that has felt so right, like you must do it. At least you’ll survive to…

According to the most recent Gallup study about employee satisfaction released on 10/9/13, from 230,000 full-time and part-time workers in 142 countries, only 13% of workers feel engaged by their jobs. Only 13%? Something’s totally wrong here. Everyone deserves to do the things they are passionate about and wake up each day with the drive and fulfillment that comes from doing work that matters. I think it’s about…

by / ⠀Entrepreneurship Travel / March 17, 2014

Is the people around you supporting you or dragging you? Back in 2006, when I was a senior in college, I secured my first formal job at a local bank as a customer service representative and it was one of those moments where I felt proud of myself because I knew I had reached a milestone in my life and I was excited for the transition.
