There is a great post on AVC where Fred explains how to look at loyalists and mercenaries. It turns out that what you do as a leader can completely change how your colleagues see their daily job. It’s true. It’s not easy and that’s probably one of the biggest challenge building a company.

It’s also a reminder of how few companies, and leaders, think about it regularly. I was at a dinner last night. A few friends of mine where discussing leaving their jobs for better paid positions. The way they were doing it made me clear how that companies already failed with them.

How to think about Education

Several weeks ago I posted something on my Facebook related to education and entrepreneurship. From time to time I listen to this beautiful interview – love the part about education. Time has passed but the problem seems to be still a big issue for US like for many other countries. It’s not about resources, it’s about mentality and how we are used to think.

This doesn’t feel new at all!


Several years ago I started a service called IlBlog.it – it was around 2004/2005. I was fascinated by blogs and fell in love with the idea of many platforms like Splinder and Blogger of allowing people to create a blog without technical skills. No hosting, no FTP, no WordPress. Nothing, just a very clear interface, a domain, and your blog ready to be filled with thoughts, images, videos. How did it go? Well that’s a great story for another post!

I wanted to open a blog for a long time, in 2015 it’s not a cool thing anymore (maybe the opposite?!) but who cares! I wanted to try WordPress.com for a long time, I never lost that passion for this kind of online product. I must say it’s beautiful, well designed, simple enough to use and incredibly beautiful in the way it’s organized. I love company’s mission too.

So, yes, this is a blog. My blog. I couldn’t come up with a better name than Bellasios. It’s not the first time I use it (yes, another post as well). I’ll use it to talk about me and what I love in my work and in my life. Entrepreneurship and tech will just be a big part of this blog. I’ll use it also to comment that thousands of articles I save every day in my Instapaper that I’ll never read……
