Marie MarksStartup Founder & VC Enthusiast // Obsessed with Deep ConversationsSome time ago
6.1.21 Dear Reader, I just wanted to start a little publication. A quick blog on this platform to express my day to day as a founder. You wouldn't believe that reality of what is found behind a business idea, the amount of challenges, the mind-blowing anxiety and the hard work that is required every day to ensure the development of projects. In about three weeks time, I'm launching my company. BRIDL. It's a marketplace for the trade of Sports Horses, which is allowing me to bring together my passion for horses and my love for entrepreneurship. This year, 2020. Has been very challenging. I spent the summer breaking all the rules of the lean startup trying to raise funding for a project where I was alone without a product. I spent a crazy amount of time running after what could be specifically the labels we like to stick to the entrepreneurship lifestyle to realise sooner than expected that I was completely wasting my time. You see, starting a company is not easy. Especially at my age. I'm 22, since last week and really only the fact of knowing there are taxes to pay at some point freaks me the hell out. Everything is a crazy process: sketching your idea, bringing your thoughts together, building a team, effectively choosing your co-founder, incorporating your business or even just figuring out what the branding of your project will be.. So many layers come together in the launch of a project. In two weeks, exactly on the day of the launch will be a year since I started sitting down to work on BRIDL. It's been a year of my life where I somedays cried, some others felt excited while asking myself constantly if I was doing the right thing. Building a company is one of the hardest but one of the most fulfilling growth experience that one can go through. I have a tremendous amount of things to learn. Many mistakes to make and much more experience to acquire however there is one thing that I can tell you: even when everyone tells you it's impossible, when everyone tells you that it's not worth it and that you just keep it safe: listen to your gut, try, fail, keep going. If it's your dream, make it happen.

Christian Wallenta on What a year full of miserydeja vu experience 2.0Some time ago
I try it again I lost some text about homeless women her name is Indigo Sun she has a degree in psychology and worked about 22 years in it. Now she is sleeping outside in the dark and cold... She do not have a passport neither nor dokuments, she is Italien from southern part of where I come from so she even dose not have the right to stay in this country what a big problem it is...can anybody do something?... No, its her mistake and she is the one who thinks about it wrong I tell you she is running away from something which haunting her till the very end... A realy tricky thing is the mind it is even if a proper person who is dedicated to some bigger level has this brakedown to overcome, so all is a fars to me nothing changed after a year and still I am beging her to function right and she will lie to me in to my face so sometimes I get angry and tell her the truth about her, terrible job but social and for her the only chance to be sometimes normal and under control.... Next time it will be the same again with her nobody will change this person into good however I still take care of her and try my best doing a good job.... Radical changes occurse to human living beings terrible mistakes happening and nobody will be there what a misery to the human race...

What is reality? In my humble point of view just an itty bitty accident. Whatever the universe may be we are just it expiriencing itself. The brain just processes our surroundings and that we call life. There are physical laws that have to be followed so if you`d simulate the big bang a million times the outcome would be always the same. Everything that is going to happen already happened. Time is just an illusion and a way for our brains to process everything. I am scared and sad, yet i don`t know why. I hope you guys are doing well.

The probability of the universe being a simulation? Nope. It’s a I’ll-formed theory. Kind of like how 5G has caused COV-SARS-2. The universe was formed on a serious of chemical reactions and physics to create the Big Bang, information were all taught in school and is readily available on accredited sources online.
