Hey everyone! Welcome to my personal blog: The very first personal blog to help contemporary busy women around the world get both business and fun done!
My name is Mee-Ling, I am a 27-years old girl from The Netherlands. Ever since I was little, I have been passionate about writing. Every time before putting things down on paper, I reflect on myself to find out what it is that I feel inside and want to express. So for me, writing has always been a way to know my (inner-) self better and better.
But it is not until I came back from Hong Kong in January 2016 after one year of self-discovery in this dynamic metropolis that I had a concrete plan of bringing my passion for writing to a whole new level by starting my own blog! This year of self-discovery also included exploring my life as full-time working young professional. Starting my first official job in one of the world’s most fast-paced cities, I discovered that it was a whole challenge to make the best of both my professional and private life. But this did not stop me to keep exploring and inventing new ways to live both my professional and personal life to the fullest! Even more, I have developed a love to share them with all (young) working professionals to help them optimally combine their professional and private lives as well. That is why I finally have cut the knot and created ‘By Mee-Ling’.
Different than the common thought that devoting time to the one means sacrificing the other, I am rather convinced that they strengthen and complement each other: succeeding in your personal life gives you positivity, power and inspiration to be the best in your professional life, and vice versa! They are both essential parts of our overall lifestyle. Hence, you will notice that my articles about the one has elements of the other.
All that remains for me now is to wish you a happy time exploring and getting inspired by the different posts you can find here! I truly hope you love reading them as much as I enjoy writing them. If you ever want to chat, feel free to contact me! The line is nearly invisible.
Thank you for stopping by, it really means the world to me!
