Running a Healthy Business

In this FB Live, Tanya will share snippets from her presentation in Prague (#Pragaganza) earlier this month. She will explain how the 7 Dimensions of Wellness apply to our businesses and give tips on how to run your business in a way that’s healthier for you and your wallet, and probably for your project lineup (and thus for your clients, too!).

Date: October 24, 2019 at 4 PM CET, live on Facebook


This is a great show for any translator looking for practical, no-nonsense and experience-based advice on how to get their careers to the next level. Tanya and Sherif are experienced, come from different professional and personal backgrounds, and complement each other perfectly.
