“You have some entrepreneurial spirit… working from nine to wine?”
Currently, I am setting up an online wine shop in China. I am in charge of planning the website and processes, which is not so easy when you don't understand a word in most meetings. However, the website is being developed and the wine is on its way, so everything works out. This summer I will spend my time working in between thousands of wine bottles in our office in China.
