And why I started to sing after taking a bite off a sandwich.

No Vacation Since 2018
⏱ Next Sunday (15.08.2021), Jacky and I will be on vacation for 2 weeks (!) straight. These are going to be my very first full vacation for over 3 years. Let me explain:
  • You see, when I started Senler Media, I started as a Solopreneur, meaning that I was responsible for everything (obviously). So yes, I sometimes took 3-4 days “off” and made city trips, I also flew to New York for a week, BUT I was always working for a couple of hours a day.
  • When Senler Media started to grow, I also was responsible for the people joining the team and the clients.
  • Then the pandemic hit, and we grew more and more.
  • But now, I have the greatest people in my team who are responsible for clients now, giving me the room, confidence, and peace to leave for vacation.
You guys can’t imagine how thankful I am to have those great human beings at Senler Media because they do everything better than I do. ❤️

From 500 km to 1'000 km?
For 10 years, I’m running (well, it’s an on-and-off relationship tbh). However, the relationship started to spark again last year, and since this year, I’m all in.
  • I set a goal of running 500 km in 2021, which I already reached just yesterday (07.08.2021), So I pumped it up now to 1'000 km. 🚀
  • I also ran over 210 km in July alone, which is my personal best so far in terms of distance.
  • And this week, I managed to run 52 km, which is also my new best
  • Another side effect: I lost around 9 kg since I started running more persistently. 🤯
As you can see, I’m prrrrrretty hooked here. What I like most are long distances. Let’s see where this will go. Follow me on Strava and see how my progress is doing. 😅
Shoutout to Jacky for supporting me no matter what. ❤️
From Apple to Garmin?
I’m totally in the Apple Ecosystem, and I honestly like it here very much. I’m also a huge fan of the Apple Watch and what it all can do, but Apple can’t come along with me since my needs are changing. Why?
  • I don’t particularly appreciate taking my phone with me when I’m running, BUT I like to try new routes. Since I can’t load routes in my Apple Watch, I have to take my phone. Garmin has a great solution for this “problem” with maps and routes you can pre-load to your watch, and then it guides you through the streets/trails.
  • Battery-Life: After my first long run of 3 hours, my watch died a couple of hours later. I’m planning to do longer runs, so I really don’t want my watch to die when I’m hitting the road.
So yeah, I’m now thinking of switching to Garmin, but I will wait until the presentation of the Apple Watch Series 7.
Bye bye Apple Watch?

Major YouTube Channel Change
As you know, I’ve been creating videos on YouTube for a long time now. I’m not very consistent because of obvious reasons:
  1. I run a company
  2. I have a wonderful relationship
  3. I run a company
No, seriously, though, running a company is not a cake, but it is manageable. And Jacky, oh Jacky. She’s supportive in every way you can imagine.
No, the real reason is my lack of vision for the channel. I tried to come up with a lot of ideas, as shown in this video above:
Finding My Niche On YouTube - A Self-Experiment
But that’s history now. The vision is here and is getting in shape so stay tuned for updates. 🚀
What Else?
🎥 We watched The Little Things starring Rami Malek, Denzel Washington, and Jared Leto. It’s an American neo-noir crime thriller film that has some serious Se7en vibes. Remember Se7en with Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt, which came out in 1995? Check out the trailer.
I definitely recommend The Little Things if you like a good crime thriller which leaves you with more questions than you asked your mother when you were 5 years old.
🍜 We have been to the best Vietnamese restaurant in Zurich called Co Chin Chin today and the food was so good I started to sing.
Vietnamese Style Sandwich and Crispy Duck. Yes!
