it is always better when other people talk about you, than you, but I’ll try to do my best… what am I?
A very curious person, who likes to know people and their life, their options, who they are, because I think that by knowing others in someway, I can find pieces of me and I can know myself better.
I am a very determined and persistent person who never gives up.
With time, age and experience, I’ve learned to be a self-confident person, assuming myself as I really am, without any complex or fear about other peoples’ thought or judgment. Strong values, ethic code, the creation of reliable relationships are things I “cultivate” every day, since I consider them the bases for our society that can’t wait to be implemented. The change starts in our Selves. (And it is not just a question of change, but mostly important, of true and honest attitude).
A fighter, a resistant, every day, till the last day.
My passion is for:
well, first of all, my dear family and my sweet cat (my naughty child). Then, my friends, who are always there for me. I love all of them very, very much.
But my passion is also my work, and also life, by trying to bring change and a positive energy to all achievement.
I am also passionate by themes related to women, entrepreneurship, management, empowerment, as well as the social ones, and so many others (here is the part directly related to my work…). To help other people, I am aware of the importance that kindness, empathy, generosity and solidarity have in our society (so selfish and individualist). These strong words, when appropriately used, can move mountains.
My business can help you to:
find a path to follow in your life and can be a source of inspiration personally as well as professionally (since you’ll find in the magazine true stories of women and their achievement, their work, their experience, their failures, their successes, etc.). We need to have a country more productive, more competitive, and economically more stable and prosperous, so I truly hope that readers of the magazine can have a bigger wish to be more active and dynamic and be the co-creators of a better society.
I make things different each day by:
trying to give my best in everything I do, professionally, as well as personally.
I have lots of ideas about:
My work: how can I improve it, how can I be better, how can I structure things to have higher profit of my work. How can I, Maryline, be better in my path, because we are not perfect, we make mistakes (a lot of them!), but the important is to learn with them and move on. Mistakes and entrepreneurial experience offer us another perspective on life and reality and we can face difficulties with strength and a global insight that allow us to find new solutions and new patterns.
Something I really am concerned about is the well-being of so many populations which don’t have their basic needs assured… to me (for some personal reasons) this is something that I think about often — how we could minimize this situation… there is so much to do for this social matter (and so much money that never arrive to his destination…)… but I believe in future, I believe in hope and I believe in a better tomorrow. And I believe that if everyone gives a little contribution, all together we can change things and co-create a better future.
My advice is:
Try to do always the best you can. Be yourself. Live in truth, honesty, generosity. Be an active creator of our society, don’t wait others to solve your problems: act, don’t react.
In life, there are no impossibilities, just difficulties.
The man of virtue makes the difficulty to overcome his first business, and success only a subsequent consideration.
Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.
Try not to become a man of success but rather to become a man of value.
There are admirable potentialities in every human being. Believe in your strength and your youth. Learn to repeat endlessly to yourself, ‘It all depends on me.’
It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
