My mother got cancer, it was uncurable and it made me realize that life can be short. I loved music, so I stopped working and started studying music. After eight months I was accepted at a music academy. I had only played bass guitar for 2,5 years, the average bass player that is accepted plays music for 8 years. In the second year in college it turned out that the other bass players where a lot better.
Next to this, if I wanted to make money in music, it would mean giving bass lessons to others. Something which I liked doing, but not for the rest of my life. Before starting my blog I already tried to explain other musicians how they can use marketing. But most of them hated marketing. They thought marketing meant changing their music style to pop. After music college my blog already had a great following. It made me realize that I could do the same for any company. So, I started looking for a job as a marketeer.
I created a slide deck with my CV to show companies what I could do for them. And to show them that I already did it for myself.
In february I received a call. It was my current employer.
Next to this, I try to inspire and help our partners to sell and market Workspace , both nationally as internationally. In short, I believe the blog helped me to get this amazing job which helps me to keep improving all my marketing skills. Alot of my knowledge comes from reading and watching videos. However, I also try to get my inspiration from others.
From experts within their branche or niche. And as I have a specific following mostly marketing people and entrepeneurs I was able to visit a lot of events for free, in exchange for a blog post.
This saved me thousands of euros on event tickets and helped me to increase my knowledge and network. Next to visiting events, speaking opportunities are great for building your network. Do I get paid each time? Sometimes I do it as I love speaking about marketing and that I hope to inspire someone to become a expert in their field.
And ofcourse, I hope they will remember me and think of me when they face a marketing challenge. Another thing which I like is books on marketing and entrepeneurship. As I love to share knowledge I receive books, read them and review them.
Marner has led the Leafs in scoring the last two seasons. He had 26 goals and 68 assists for 94 points last year, the most by a Leaf since Mats Sundin hit 94 in For that reason, he rarely plays with Matthews.
The year before, James van Riemsdyk scored 36, the most of his career, playing with Marner. Hyman will miss the start of the season while recovering from shoulder surgery, with Kasperi Kapanen potentially filling that hole. But the other line of Matthews, Nylander and now Andreas Johnsson promises to be just as productive. Marner — like Matthews, who signed for five years — will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the deal.
Marner will be 28, Matthews 25 when they hit UFA status. A handful of Leafs returned from dinner in St. The lament about having everyone in camp has been a common theme since the team convened this week. Not signing until Dec. He scored just seven goals. With Tavares also missing the start of camp due to the birth of his first child and Hyman hurt, it prompted Babcock to ponder life without that line.
You got good depth and all that. That means it would be protected in the event of a lockout, a concern with collective bargaining underway and the current agreement due to end in — or if the players decide use their option to do so by Sept.
