Most of us start our entrepreneurial or professional career with high hopes and good intentions. Few of us, however, have ever given much thought to designing our overall life experience, as a starting point to creating the business venture or professional career that we envision.


  • something that causes activity between two or more persons or forces without itself being affected.
  • a person or thing that precipitates an event or change.
  • a person whose talk, enthusiasm, or energy causes others to be more friendly, enthusiastic, or energetic.

In the role of a Entrepreneurial Catalyst and Professional Career Advisor, I’d like for you to consider the approach of designing your life experience as a starting point, so that your business ventures and professional career objectives are based on thoughtful reflection, introspection and a design-centric approach that will significantly help you advance your objectives..

So, let's begin! Please view the video presentation If your life is your biggest project, why not design it? (Ayse Birsel, TEDxCannes, 2017). 

After viewing this presentation, capture your thoughts, feelings and ideas on creating a life design strategy for yourself,  using whatever tools and mediums that provide you with the greatest level of personal expression.

Be creative and use your imagination! Consider combining video segments, photo's, graphic images with text narratives, if you want to use a multimedia approach to communicate your ideas for a life design strategy expression.

You may consider writing a long text essay or recording an audio track, if you feel that you communicate best through the use of written language and spoken expression.

If you are more or a visual learner/communicator, then a collage of videos, photographs, images and other graphics may be the best means for you to communicate your thoughts and ideas on the design your life presentation.

Please share your questions, thoughts and most of all, creative expressions of your life design with me. Looking forward to guiding you in your quest to design a life that will be a fun, fulfilling and profitable experience!
