It is Monday morning. I am just back from my sister's graduation in Vilnius, Lithuania. I find myself in my working desk at the University of Antwerp. As I enjoy the sweet taste of a croissant and the refined Italian espresso, I notice how the scent of bitter coffee reminds me the fate of life: bitter and sweet at the same time.
I am constantly being asked what is biggest challenge I've faced in business? Well, for a start, I'm not even sure I have faced it yet - because there are always challenges ahead - that's what makes business, and being in business for oneself in particular, so exciting, demanding, and yes, to be obvious, challenging.
