My Trip to Israel for Global Network Week

Being in Israel for the GNW, had a positive impact in my professional and personal life.

May 5, 2014

If you have had the chance to visit Israel, you will agree with me that it is a very unique country, enriched by different religions, cultures, global history, technology, and much more; and all that happening in country that is 424 kilometers long from north to south and 114 kilometers wide from east to west. This means that you can drive the country in almost 6 hours from North to South.

 Being in Israel for the GNW, had a positive impact in my professional and personal life, perfectly complementing my business formation in PUC. Professionally, I learned more about startups, enhancing directly the work I've been doing along with the Yale Entrepreneurial Institute, developing my own company. On the personal side and as a Catholic, the visit to Israel has strengthened my religious beliefs and my marriage.

A final thought related to this visit is what a wise man said almost 12 years ago and I still remember every day:

Happiness is the correct balance between four areas of your life: work, family, personal interests, and your relation with God.

These were the exact areas I connected with in this trip and I pretend to continue enhancing over my life.
