Post 49. Better Later Than Never. I am on Instagram

I am very quick in some of my actions: thinking, reading… And in some areas, I am the opposite.   I am now finally on Instagram under @sandusembi. This website Steppebystep and blog helped me in my journey towards building a company in consulting and executive education for the B2 B sector. I have a client list consisting of Companies and Universities to die for, but the most important is not a list but the relations we have with my […]

Post 48: Scary Story – Read Your Contract

“Do not sign the contract. Read it first. The words hidden and written in smaller fonts read twice at least”. But it was too late. A few months ago, two young international students came to live in the Netherlands. They were looking for an apartment, and as it was the beginning of the academic year, due to the shortage at the market, they signed a contract and rented quite an expensive apartment (60 % higher than the market rate). When […]

Post 47. Skill to learn when you run your Company

5 Skills I had to learn while running a company. Business basics: incorporation, taxation, accounting, marketing, sales, and the business itself- to sell a product or service, you must be either the best in the area or at least very good. Because of my corporate career, it was one of my easy-going parts. Digital creation skills – creating the website, writing the landing pages, and preparing the e-courses, writing a blog. Oh, that was hard. Even if you go to […]

Post 46: Feedback

https://steppebystep.com/blog/post-45evaluation-form/ Quote: ” I can grow as a leader only if I am willing to accept feedback.” We all need people who will give us feedback. And as we approach the end of the semester, I wanted to reflect on the time spent together with the students and gather valuable FEEDBACK. Your opinions and insights are incredibly important to me as an educator. They help me understand what has been working well and where improvements can be made to enhance […]

Post 44: About Job

“A job is about a lot more than a paycheck. It’s about your dignity. It’s about respect. It’s about your place in your community.’” I do not always agree with what Joe Biden says, but for this particular one, we are on the same page ❤️😍 Do you agree? Have you found your community and your place there? #quoted #sandusembi

Post 42. Do we always need a PLAN?

Who did you want to be when you were younger, one of the students asked me last week… This question came out unexpectedly. None ever asked me this question – I mean, of course, I received this question when I was a kid or a student, but not when I am halfway through my career. I answered that I wanted to be a criminal lawyer, which was a dream of mine when I was reading a pile of thrillers, detectives, […]

Kazakh people celebrate New Year twice – once on the 1 of January, with the rest of the world, and once on the 22 of March.

Magic sounds of ancient music, the speech of the Ambassador of Kazakhstan in the […]
