Nothing is happening – Brazil [5]

posted in: Brazil | 0

I’m slightly panicked. Nothing is happening. What if I will not be able to go to Brazil this year? (link) What if I will never be able to go? My stomach turns. I started a blog series about the process of going to Brazil and finding eco-entrepreneurial business opportunities. To show how the process unfolds and how it will work out. Because I believed it would work out. But now I have the feeling that nothing is happening. And I’m … Read More

Conflicting ideals – Brazil [4]

posted in: Brazil | 0

When the idea evolved to go to the Brazilian coast to work on environmental projects, I didn’t think I would have conflicting ideals within myself.

But reflecting on why you don’t do something, which is your passion, is important. … Read More

I want to go back to Brazil! How it began – Brazil [1]

posted in: Brazil | 0

I have taken up the idea that I want to return to my home country Brazil. And the idea won’t let go of me, so I probably really want it (because I always have dozens of ideas a day, but 99% I can not or will not execute). The next months I will write about this process in a series of blogs, what I run up against, and of course how it turns out. It is always difficult to explain … Read More
