Products of an unrealised dream

Let’s say you dream about making a short film to participate in festivals. You are an executive in business life and have never made a film before. What do you do? Don’t say “How come?” I said it’s a dream. ☺ Using your business skills, you will probably first think about building a team to […]

Who said it was the last?

The first ones were professional… I created a new product and a generic trademark, still well known today.

Buying a house for the piano

Ever heard of a man who bought a new house just for his piano? Probably not. If I had, I wouldn’t have believed it anyway. And I might have joked about it. But I cannot do so now… since the joke would be on me. ☺ It’s true. In one of my crazy moments I […]

Who reads these magazines?

A few days ago I went to a bookstore and did something I had wanted to do for a long time. I bought all of the business magazines in the store. First observation: The number of business magazines has increased quite a lot recently, and I’d never heard of many of them before. First question: […]

12 women & 1 man

Recently I was invited as a speaker to a breakfast meeting in Istanbul, which was organized by kadinlararasi. com, a web platform for women in business. 12 businesswomen and I spent that morning talking about the companies they own. The headline of this pleasant meeting was Selling the Future. It is not possible for me […]
