Stories of Leaves from the Lord of The Leaves – Master Onnik

This is a tiny shop in the Grand Bazaar’s Inner Bedesten. It is not possible to notice the treasure inside from the outside. We learn that it is part of the Byzantine barn. We pass through the inner corridor while passing through a tiny place. The tiny narrow corridor is filled with newspaper clippings promoting the miraculous art of the master Onnik. There is a small antique table right in front of him. If you look under the table glass,…

Essence of the Word

I am very excited as I’m writing this post. While I’m preparing this site, I didn’t want to limit the subjects by posting about only Turkish women and Turkey, I also wanted to write on the lives of women of other countries and their cultures. The help came from my close friend Turgut SAY. As a guest writer this week, Turgut SAY tells us how Iranian literature is influenced after the Islamic revolution and the role of women in Iranian…

Alas! I’m having a website done.com

My story of not being over-hyped about websites is one year old. I have my own blog made first. Then I have some experience through the websites of the associations and companies that I am present at the management. There is no need to look at the headline and be pessimistic. Being a blog, website owner is incredibly enjoyable, you use your skills that you have never used or rarely used, such as research and development, aesthetics, some technology and…

Gamification in our Life

The child, the young, the adult or the elderly… It doesn’t matter. We are looking for motivating factors to move, learn, change. Leaving the cigarette, losing 5 pounds, learning a foreign language can be among the new year targets every year, but we are not able to act and maintain this desire to achieve the goals. The same goes for companies. It is necessary to adapt human resources constantly to change and to acquire new skills. Every year, millions of…

MILAN ACCEPT STARBUCKS?

I was in Milan this weekend. Unquestionably, one of the cities I have been to most and traveled dozens of times in Europe over the years. This time I think the 20 degrees of temperature, with the advantage of bright air, is more active and energetic than ever. Maybe after the dark and miserable debates of Turkey’s agenda, it was motivating to hear the topics here. As Turks, we are tended to try, implement and adopt new changes and varieties…

Book Interviews

After establishing my own business, I do not know where new acquaintances and new dialogues will take me. These acquaintances bring new dialogue, new dialogue brings new ideas and excitement to the agenda. I met with Menekse Polatcan Serbest, the owner of the Humanist Publishing House, at the PWN Istanbul meetings, which organization I have been a member of the board of directors recently. She aims to deliver books to business life and business life to wider communities. We both…

Chinese Art of Face Reading

 We are at Harbiye Divan Hotel which is one of my favorites. Ms. Sevgi entered in the hotel cafeteria 5 minutes after me and approached the table by saying hello. We sat together after a short greeting. We have never met before with her; I do not count a few email correspondence and last phone call. She said, “You have your grooms.” “Beautiful … this shows the extra energy of life.”, she continued. I read the book before the interview.…
