If we include my part-time studies at the university, I have been in business life for almost 35 years. During these years, I have gained a lot of experiences and learned a lot from those experiences. I would like to share what I have learned in a very short and succinct way with young friends from me as much as possible ... Today's technology also provides a great opportunity for this ...
I will try to do voluntary digital mentorship from this platform outside of my working works... When I say mentoring, it is limited to conveying my articles only 😊 Unfortunately, for now, I will not find time for more, one-on-one communication.
I am happy if I can add even the slightest value to my connections and readers.
We continue the journey ...
