Hi! I’m Diana. I’m Venezuelan, so my first language is Spanish, but I’m very good at pretending to speak English and French. I “normally” live in 3 very different worlds: 3 cities, 3 cultures, 3 languages… so I never get bored! Caracas is my home town, I’m currently living in Paris, but an important part of my life is in London. This means that you will get an interesting mixture of experiences.
Why millennial entrepreneur?
For the last 8 years I’ve been a real-successful-confused-always-changing-millennial-entrepreneur. I have created and managed different companies: 1 failed, 1 got an award, 1 continues running with a different name and a different business partner, and the final company appeared in Forbes Magazine as one of the top 30 promising start-ups in Central America.
In 2014, after 5 years of hard work, I decided to sell my shares of that “promising star-up” and walk away. Why? I realised that in a globally connected world I needed to do something more far-reaching. I looked for inspiration, innovation and new challenges. So I took a year to travel the world, to write, to connect myself with other people from different cultures, languages and backgrounds.
I arrived in Paris a year ago to do my MBA (in French). I wanted to learn another language and I thought that the best way to do it was studying a master. It has been a fantastic experience. Working on my final dissertation, I realised that I’m not that special! I’m just another typical millennial: we want to save the world, we need to be involved in something meaningful, we have the spirit of an entrepreneur, google is our best friend, we are not afraid of failure, but we are never satisfied.
It’s all about sharing!
If I have to pick a word to describe this moment of my life, it would be “sharing”. It’s a need, it’s a trend, it’s the objective of this blog. I’ll be sharing my passion about marketing and communications, entrepreneurship, and other personal stories / opinions as a millennial entrepreneur. I just want to connect with other people and keep learning, so please don’t leave me alone on this and feel free to comment and confront my ideas!
