Meet our newest blogger, Alexandra, a talented PR girl for MUUSE and one half of the team behind CPHBLN.
There has been a lot of discussion about what entrepreneurship is.
Sara’s written one definition I agree with, for example. I wouldn’t necessarily regard myself an entrepreneur (a discussion I’m leaving for another blogpost), but for me a straightforward explanation or definition is: Entrepreneurship is about being curious and making things happen.
Where do things happen? Everywhere, really, and most of the time where I least expect it.
When I was writing my thesis, I felt like Hege – I needed a quiet space that was dedicated to work, somewhere that had nothing to do with the rest of my life, a space I could leave behind when I needed a break and a clean divide between work and private life.
Now I feel that I’m constantly surrounded by opportunities and all I need to do is get out there (on- and offline) and grab them – or be grabbed by them:
I met my blogging partner Mette in the comment field of an ArtRebels blogpost – after half a year of brain-dating, we made it happen and came up with cphbln.net and now find ourselves having a site people actually visit and find useful.
Another example is my entrepreneurial partner in crime, my flatmates’ dog Apollo: When I walk him, I can switch off my mind, be open to new things and we frequently bump into interesting people who inspire me with what they do – he’s a truly entrepreneurial spirit in his own way, always curious to meet new people and a great pal to go for coffee with: People connect to him instantly and often all you need to get new impulses is a little talk with a stranger, a new perspective.
Blogging for We Unite is one of these new perspectives, making me look at my (entrepreneurial?) self, the projects I engage in and the people I meet with fresh eyes. I’m looking forward to sharing this experience on here – and at all the other “workspaces” where I happen to bump into likeminded people (you will recognise me by the ginger collie by my side…)
