Projects I work on
Moving eHotel.cz to a new investment round, building with online training courses, preparing for wedding. A lot of thing is going on. This is a short review of projects I work on.
I really like Austin Kleon’s “Show your Work” book (Czech translation here). In the first part of the book, Austin Kleon encourages people working freelance to share what are they working on. Lot of bloggers, authors and other creative people do that. See the project list of Austin Kleon, Derek Silvers (founder of CD Baby) or thriller author J.F.Penn.
This year is going great so far. eHotel.cz is reaching last years peak season numbers in march already (!) My online courses at Vimvic.cz are bestsellers. Evička and me are getting ready for New York City spring Vacation and of course, our wedding in August.
See the details of all my work and non-work projects on my new page www.jiribenedikt.com/now/ with all the details.
