Has it been 5 years already for BizzBee? Time does fly. Actually, it’s been 12 years since the company was founded, but I am counting the years since we’ve rebranded into BizzBee Solutions, as I feel that BizzBee is a story worth sharing. Hop with me on my journey where I will share my B2B reflections and resolutions for the next (hopefully way better) year. :)
Let me take you down memory lane. I bootstrapped AdvertSMS, a mobile marketing agency in 2008, at the age of 23. In the meantime, I did my best in trying to juggle all the…
Have I ever told you my favourite story?
It’s a story about failure and not being able to break free. But as I see it, it’s a story about success and motivation.
A tale of how one can use their faults for their own benefit.
Let me tell you the story, it’s called ‘The Elephant Rope.’
As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could…
Once upon a not so long ago, I was a young (and I still am) entrepreneur who just levelled up into a business owner.
I mean, I had my own company. A company that I was in charge of.
A castle on the hill that I built on my own.
It was a dream I had since forever and now it had finally came true. …
I am a man who loves walking and nature. Walking literally everywhere. I enjoy the fresh splash of air on my face, the rain caressing my hair and the brown leaves crunching underneath my feet. Man, what a joy it is to be alive.
I vividly remember the times when I was walking from my apartment to work, creating all kinds of scenarios about my future in my head, counting my blessings, humming some catchy songs that I’ve overheard on the radio or just simply breathing the fresh air and letting the sun warm up my face.
I don’t want…
Can you remember the times when you were fresh out of college, having no idea what the future might bring?
When having a nice piece of paper with ‘Bachelor Diploma’ engraved on it made you so proud of yourself but also scared as a child who just lost their mom in the supermarket?
All these isles, all these products, these people staring at you, so many choices, so many turns, and you have to choose just one way.
But which one is right?
Will going left bring you the fulfilment and the joy you always wanted?
Or would it be…
Copywriting is no longer a fancy, confusing, out-of-this-world word, neither are copywriting tools.
I like to think of copywriting as the marketing equivalent of having a child.
Don’t panic. It’s not (that) laborious nor (that) painful. Although, there could be some long, sleepless nights involved.
But let me get back to the point.
We’re creating something that we can’t instantly feel or touch but rather something that involves a lot of nurturing, nourishing, and cherishing.
And all that only to learn to let it go. One day we must let it out in the world to spread its wings.
It’s not easy being part of the business world. There are so many people you should answer to, a ton of obligations you need to tend to and having time for yourself seems like just not being in the cards for you. That’s why you need people with whom you can share the workload. A team.
Team of professionals or less experienced people that you can mentor that can lessen the burden of your heavy entrepreneurial back. As the face and the brain behind BizzBee Solution — a very successful Macedonian management consulting company, I also have a heavy burden to…
Have you ever played one of those games called ‘Spot/Find the difference?’
Quite a mind wrecker, isn’t it? You can spend hours, days even, trying to find just the one tiny, little different pattern in the most colourful wallpaper in the room. And as Murphy would have it, it’s usually right under your nose, poking your eyes.
So you keep telling yourself, just this one, and I am off to bed.
And another one, and another one more, the next thing you know, it’s 3 am, and you are staring at your screen, trying to solve just this ‘last’ one.
When you have a lot on your plate, getting distracted is fairly easy. It happens all the time, really.
There are so many platforms trying to capture our attention. Facebook, Instagram, Netflix, you name it. Sometimes I even catch myself scrolling automatically without paying an ounce of attention. At times, it’s like I’m unable to get out of the social media vortex. It just keeps pulling me in.
Don’t get me wrong. Social media, and media in general, can be extremely useful and convenient. Especially in the pandemic social distancing times. Though being it hard nowadays, being social is what…
If you ever felt stuck with data research or are just willing to learn more about where online data is stored, you are in the right place. In this blog post, we reveal the most useful B2B company information databases.
Being the CEO of an SME and simultaneously the father of a 3-year-old requires a lot of problem-solving. And I mean a lot. You find yourself in a lot of awkward situations. Raising a child is hard work. It’s so rewarding but also very demanding. But sometimes, it feels like a breeze compared to managing clients and employees. Especially if…
