My Cupcake for 2017

Cupcake Method

What is a cupcake and what it has to do with my personal targets for the upcoming year? Check out in my story here.

In 2018 my focus is on starting fresh in a new company with more responsibilities and gaining more competences in the IT sector. Change is a constant in this year as for example ending my table tennis career after 25 years of playing in various championships. The gained time I want to use for new sports and fitness training to have good balance between cardio and muscle workouts. This website launch about my personal and business life is another new step in my life, as well as learning skiing and scuba diving.
