What’s kept you busy in March?

  • March is the month I found my perfect place to live and even though it caused me to take a week vacation it’s a WEAll highlight because it added so much wellbeing to my life I need everyone to know 😉
  • Creating a Hub Guide and the potential of what it’s going to happen in the future with more WEAll hubs being created
  • The different new members I have got to meet through different calls have a huge motivation in my day to day work

March highlight:

  • My new home!

April priorities:

  • April is shaping up to be a really vivid and exciting month and especially the fact that I’ll be meeting in person many of WEAll members in Malaga makes it very especial. Looking forward to our gathering and the Forum’s encounter and work!
