Starting a blog with my age isn't that uncommon. Actually there are a lot of people who create their first blog as teens. But creating a blog about productivity, digital marketing and business with 17 years old is, as many people call me, weird. Who cares about productivity when you're "young, wild and free"? Well... I actually do, quite a lot!
My name is Filipa Canelas, I'm 17 years old and I'm a Portuguese entrepreneur. I love the English language and that's why I decided to create a blog in English. There's been a long time since I want to share my productivity tips and hacks, business ideas, personal experiences, productivity experiments, etc. And I thought I could use a blog to do it!
I have launched two online courses in the past, worked as a secretary/personal assistant in an International Culture Event in my country, I've been a seller on Fiverr, I created an ebook to sell on Amazon and much more. I'm now working on this project that means a lot to me!
Everything that I've created in the past I did hide my age, because, for some reason, I was afraid people wouldn't "believe" me.
But now, me, Filipa Canelas, decided to stop with it, because there's no reason to be ashamed of something that is totally right and awesome! If you are young and you're afraid to share something you know and learned, don't be! Age means nothing when you're passionate about something that you're willing to learn. If you are an adult and you know any young person who is sharing what he/she learnt and is starting something new, think twice before you judge them. It's so beautiful when people help each other!
I buy a lot of online courses that provide me the best resources/information in the market and I'm really passionate about learning anything that can provide me new insights and ideas for future business and projects. I'm also really interested in learning hacks and tips to improve my productivity and performance!
It's not easy to become an entrepreneur, but I guarantee you can be one if you want! The key? Never ever give up! If your plan A isn't working, try the B, C, D, AA, BB, etc.
There are no limits when you love what you're doing! And my blog represents my everyday journey trying to reach success!
