Jurgis Terleckas on How to have the best mornings?Communication entusiastSome time ago
Why do you even wake up @5AM? Early mornings for me used to be : A. Stressful trips to the airports, while haven’t got enough sleep. B. Going fishing with my dad (these were awesome but still I would wake up all triggered and exhausted.) C. Trips to the hospital. So far you should have already got the point that early mornings for me = no fun. What my early mornings are now? I take my time slowly, because everybody else is still sleeping. I make myself a cup of coffee, cook some light breakfast and listen to some audiobooks or podcasts, depending on the situation. Before I got my knee injured, I also used to jog in the morning.(The views would be even better than in the photo, trust me;)) But why?! As simple as it gets. I hate to rush somewhere, for example: school, work, whatever the case might be. I choose to enjoy my time, because good morning sets a tone for the day. Main pros: A. You feel motivated. It’s an awesome feeling to have already done much more than your friends or other companies. B. You learn much more about discipline. Discipline might be a huge factor in your success. F.e: you won’t be amused by that sweet donut at the coffee shop, might save some extra $ or kilos;) There is a quote by Jocko Willink(ex navy seal) - “ Discipline equals freedom.” C. Productivity level. For some, it might be a huge game changer. Personaly, when I started rising early, it became much easier to finish the tasks in shorter amount of time. However, you should test it and then make conclusions. I just love the idea of testing and learning. Don’t be afraid to sacrifice one week;) When not to get up early? PRIORITISE SLEEP HOURS. Some people need 6 hours, others can’t live without 8. Basicaly, don’t sacrifice your sleep hours, so you can rise early. Hell no. That’s the only situation that I don’t find benefits of waking up early. As the saying goes : early bird gets the worm. Thanks for your time❤️

Thomas Desimpel on Angel investors / how to invest in start up's.Angel Investor, Polyglot, Real Estate InvestorSome time ago
Justas of Qoorio asked me: "Thomas, what's your story of becoming an angel tech investor ?" Short answer: "The totally different and new network of founders and co-investors and the continuous learnings and new insights that break you outside of your social bubble" Very Qoorious ☝️😊🤗 of filosofy, (part) of the reasons I am on this network to have my daily Qoorious coffee/readings .. Longer answer (and as a bonus I will let you know how I ended up as the only Belgian, so far😊, until this moment on Qoorio, at least to my knowledge.) "As a Belgian living in Brazil where I set up my own real estate investing company from scratch (as foolish as this looks in hind sight when writing this down, in the beginning I couldn't speak even Brazilian Portuguese- but that's another story), I worked almost day and night while also had to give a lot of attention towards my family whom I had brought over from Belgium with me and they also faced the same problems (new school, new language, new house, totally new social environment etc). "My work universe was (and still is) a network of trusted Brazilian real estate lawyers, brokers, real estate developers, my accountant a few free lancers (real estate scouts, architects). With this people I have worked very closely during a number of years." "While doing so, after some years, some Belgians from my 'old' home country started to contact me and asked spontaneous help to introduce them to and help them with things like setting a local company themselves, referring to have a good accountant, commercial introductions, helped them to translate (meanwhile I became quite fluent in Portuguese) .... I started to realise I had something to offer...and the seed of becoming a business angel was planted." "Also doing so, broke my old social network and I met totally new people from outside of my network with different/other views/insights/experiences....and that was the second seed of becoming a business angel" "After a failed first investment in a start up, I realised I lacked training/education in the business angel world." "After moving back from Brazil to Belgium I decided to follow a number of angel investment classes where at the same time I learned how syndicates were working" "I couldn't find the specialised trainings in Belgium so I found a course in the Netherlands. I very much liked it and learned a lot. I asked the organizers how did they start. They learnt it them selves from other investors/copied the program from Estonia. So I took lessons online/offline from Estonia." "In Estonia I asked the organizers from the Nordic Angel Program why/how they decided to launch an investor program...seemed they learnt it themselves/copied from Fiban (association of Finnish business angels) and some angels of FIBAN in Estonia invited me to Helsinki to "learn from the source"... "And so I ended up in Helsinki...taking lessons and networking /investing together in one Finnish start up. (The idea/filosofy of those programs is not only learning in theory but also Do-ing it, making a real due diligence /vetting process)" "In Helsinki I was approached by a Baltic VC who wanted to learn more from my Brazilian experiences as one of this start-up's started to get active over there and checked if I could help them potentially...Offcourse✌️😉..." " I liked his investment approach and learned he was launching a new fund...the first investment turned out to be....,🙌🤗 Qoorio" And so Justas that's how I became an angel investor and enthusiastic supporter of Qoorio 👌👍 and the first Belgian on your network. Hereunder a picture of Brazilian art, it's a group of people going in group from one place to another and that's how I feel about life and angel investing.

Start up investing should not be about chasing unicorns 🦄...at least not the primary driver. In my view it's more about the intangibles and second only trying to get a decent return... Hereunder a long read of my first 4 years of international angel investing. What do you think Qoorio 🆒🤗 community? Feel free to get in touch, would love to share experiences on Qoorio! https://www.linkedin.com/posts/thdesimpel_20-lessons-learned-through-international-activity-6671045266675666944-zqZB
