Be a successful entrepreneur in your small business

My Five Tips for Small Businesses

When establishing a new business, excitement is one of the key motivators. Of course, you are excited! I am not an exception either. When I quit my job to start working on my won, I was super excited. I was also scared. I wanted to do everything at once. But at many times, I was […]

Public speaking in English as a second language is sometimes frightening

Public Speaking in English as a Second Language

  As you might know from my previous post, I was over 20 when I started to learn English. Before that, I had to study Russian (yeah, I was born during the years of communism in Hungary), German as well as French in the school – but you can guess I don’t really speak any […]


Focus Triggers

I have to admit it’s not easy to focus here while I’m writing these words. Although I’m sitting in my home office, there are too many distractions. My youngest boy is sleeping in the room next to me, and there’s a good chance he wakes up in only a few minutes. My eldest son is […]

How I Got Started in IT

Everyone has his/her own story of life, and I’d like to share mine here. I was born as the first child of a very poor family, living in Eastern Hungary. My mother is a seamstress, my father is a metal worker. I inherited my father’s skills at problem solving; he had been always good in […]

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

Facebook & Philanthropy

Since we all use Facebook on an almost daily basis, I thought it would be interesting to share an article in which its founder features as #9 of the most powerful people in the US today. (You can read it here if you’d like). What really interested me was not Mark Zuckerberg’s ranking in the […]

Changes on my Blog

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you might have noticed there are some changes happened here. After years spent writing mostly about Enterprise Search and Content Management, you will now notice there have been more personal and mentorship posts recently. As I have been extending what I do, I’ve also decided to separate […]

Farewell - Cross the ocean


More than two years ago my life has changed dramatically: I “crossed the ocean” – started working for BA Insight as a Senior Search Solutions Consultant.  It’s been one of the best periods of my life: I learned and experienced a lot, worked with outstanding colleagues on very nice projects. Could not be more thankful […]
