This blog is no longer updated. I spend too much of my free time on my entrepreneurship course or working on other projects to take care of this blog…
I will write new posts when I’ll have more time.
Thanks everyone!Read More
I came back from New York. It was huge, I really liked it. Walking through all these different neighborhoods was great, Greenwich Village was one of my favorite, but SoHo and Chelsea were also lovely. Anyway, I’m sure I’ll come back another time in the next few years, but this time in spring, it was freezing!
Lot of things happened between that, I’m starting marketing courses at the SAWI, 2 evenings a week + 2 Saturdays a month. I’m really excited to be back to school and learn all the basics of marketing and communication. I’m doing these courses (only 4 month) to have a paper called MarKom and this paper will allow me to take another course which will allow me to have a higher degree in marketing. All of these courses are in the evening or during weekends, so I needed to find a job close to Lausanne or at 80%, that’s why I quit my job at the end of January and that I’m currently looking for new opportunities in the marketing field. I’d love to manage creative campaigns in the future, but as a junior in marketing, it’s always hard to find « the dream job ». I already have a few interviews in the next weeks, so we’ll see how it goes. So if you’re recruiting and you’re looking for a junior creative guy for your marketing team, don’t hesitate to contact me, you can also check my LinkedIn profile.
I ordered a GoPro HD HERO 2 a week ago, I think I’ll get it tomorrow at home, I can’t wait to try this. I’ll use it while snowboarding, but also during road trips, travels and personal video projects, FYI I’ll upload everything on my Vimeo channel. I also decided to do bungee jumping as soon as the weather is nice enough, but also book myself a parachute jump just after that. I can’t wait to finally try this! I’ll obviously use the GoPro for both of these activities.
I just started working on a new web project related to the beautiful country I’m living in, Switzerland. More information coming soon, I need to get back my coding skills first.
Here you go. I had a lot of things to deal with these last weeks, couldn’t post a lot and I’m sorry about that, I’m more active on Twitter, you can follow me if you’re into startups, travel, marketing or Switzerland.
Here is a little compilation with « Shit People Say » videos, you might have seen a few of them recently, especially the one from New-York. Enjoy!
Day or night, this song makes me smile, think and feel better. Alex, you’re a genius.Read More

Since 2005, YouTube and other social video sites have given people the ability to express themselves in a whole new way – vlogging. People can just sit down in front of their camera and talk to share their opinion about different topics. A dozen of vloggers are now very famous online, because of their daily/weekly shows on Youtube. One of their first interest was the freedom of sharing their thoughts to the world in a whole new way, but since a few years, with the Youtube’s advertising program, vlogging is now their everyday’s job. Yes, you can earn money for just talking to a camera about whatever you want, isn’t it great?
