In 2017, I was fed up with solo freelancing and decided to partner with Maxime to found Mozza. This micro agency would enable us to work on exciting projects together and remotely. For the first two years, Mozza was a duo. We helped a few promising startups like Aircall or Heetch on product strategy & UX/UI design while traveling in Europe, the US and Asia.

At the end of 2018, we put an end to our professional network Mangrove and my cofounder started to focus on his YouTube channel project. I felt the need to involve more people in the…

After having worked several years as a growth marketer for startups, a career path became pretty obvious for me. I could keep on climbing up the traditional ladder by occupying bigger and bigger positions in tech companies. But deep inside, that was not what I wanted. I rarely felt deeply aligned with the values of my employers, and wanted more freedom in my professional life.

Ce message et les 3 semaines d’expérimentation à Essaouira qui suivirent ont été le point de départ d’un nouveau mode de vie professionnel…

Il y a un peu plus d’un mois, nous discutions de l’année à venir avec d’anciens collègues. Nous venions de quitter la même entreprise par manque d’adhésion culturelle (j’en parle ici) et alors que certains envisageaient de reprendre…
