Lazy Day

lazy-day

After heading home from Mikey’s handball game (it was the first of the new season) last night, we decided to watch a movie and pigged out on some sandwiches and chocolate ice cream. This morning, we slept in and I’m just about to finish some e-banking, preparing e-mails and my “TO DO” list for tomorrow before heading out for a run. Although it’s pretty dark and gloomy outside, being inside all day makes me super sleepy so I look forward to a bit of outdoor sports.

Hope you have a relaxing day too & can’t wait to start into the new week with a BANG!!!

Make The World Your Office

cafe

Meeting up with a friend to talk through some potential collaboration opportunities this morning was lovely and thanks to the great weather, we decided to work from just outside a local café! I simply love exploring new places to work from now and then…

What about you: where is your favorite place to work from?

Please welcome Lisa, the new Business Associate Intern for Marketing at LA Preuss Consulting!!! Haha-such a coincidence that we both have the same name! As I mentioned in a previous post, there a few things to consider before your intern arrives. Likewise, you may want to consider the following on DAY 1 of the internship: Continue reading “The Intern Is Here”

1 Day in Hong Kong

Our 2 weeks in Australia flew by far too quickly but before heading home, we had 1 day in Hong Kong…

The weather wasn’t particularly great but thanks to a ton of tips from our amazing friend Adrienne, we tried to make the very best of our short stay there before heading back to Zurich!

In case you’re wondering why I’m writing a post at this hour… We’re in Australia!!!

OH – wait – have I not told you yet?

Well, Mikey and I left on Tuesday so I was super busy finishing up some projects, notifying my customers and packing before that. And on Tuesday morning, we had a really long flight from Zurich to Hong Kong and after that another really long flight to Brisbane with quite a bit of layover in between and didn’t arrive in Australia until Wednesday night. Mom & Dad came to pick Mikey & I up from the airport and took us to the airbnb place we’re staying at with 2 of my sisters. Since then, I’ve been keeping my work to an absolute minimum! Literally, I check my e-mails once in the morning and once at night and – if something urgent comes up – I’ll respond and work for no more than 30min but so far, I’ve been able to totally enjoy this “home away from home” with my boyfriend and family. Plus, I must admit, I really loved being in the air for so long without any internet connection because there’s currently so much going on (new projects coming up and the intern that will be starting once I arrive back home, …), I was able to perfectly use the time to collect my thoughts.

It’s Sunday morning 9:00 AM here and, in a bit, Dad will arrive back from his swim – you see: the reason all of us are here is because he qualified for the 70.3 IronMan World Championships which take place here today in 1 week! We’re all really excited to be a part of this and – now that I’ve acclimatized to the 8h time change – I can’t wait to keep you posted!!!
