There it is! July has come. With it, departures for the holidays, luggage to prepare and lists of all the items we don’t want to forget like this one good book. You know which one I am thinking about. It is the one we never find the time to read, the one which is always on the bedside table, or the one that all your friends are raving about that you promised yourself to buy next time to go to a bookstore. At Manistal, to start summertime with success, we wanted to share with you a selection or four books that we liked. We promise; those have been read and approved by the team!
Did you know that you can ask for a coworking bonus from the Region of Brussels ? In fact, since June 1st, the Region has made it possible to get up to 450€ back on your membership in a coworking space. Their goal is to promote entrepreneurship to self-employed and entrepreneurs to leave their house. By trying a coworking space, they benefit from a professional and cosy work space, well equipped compared to the coffee house on the corner of their street.

So, should we give up? NO. Because once again, your favorite coworking has unearthed some magical tools to boost your productivity (tested and approved by the team of course).
For some, pitching comes naturally. But if you are like me, it will take you a lot of practice to find the right words and the right arguments. Even if you are the one who knows your products and/or services the most, preparation will do you wonders. Especially if you are using this simple, effective and famous technique, storytelling.
We get it. We also get tired of the same old sandwiches we find on the other side of the street. Not that they are delicious. But sometimes, we need something different.…
