What I’m doing now (updated June 2020)

This page is from Matthieu / Vincent might be convinced one day πŸ˜‰

I live in Amsterdam 🇳🇱, since April 2020.
We had been living 4 years in Shanghai 🇨🇳 and 5 in Hong Kong 🇭🇰 prior to that.

Saying that our lives have been impacted by the Covid-19 is an understatement:
– We resigned from our jobs (Growth Director at XNode for me; at Fabernovel for madame);
– We moved from China to Europe;
– Relocated 9 years worth of stuff and memories from APAC 🌏
– Home quarantined, twice.
– Really worried for friends, family members, and people in challenging situations.

Things could have been difficult but thankfully, we can stay at my parents in law.
Thanks to a timely introduction with the Techstars network (#techstarsforlife), I interviewed and got the job of COO at geoFluxus.

Our 👶🏻baby girl Stella is 7 months old and doing splendidly well! She changed everything in our lives (post here) and we are incredibly happy to have her with us.


At geoFluxus, we map waste!
We run a resource management tool that helps corporations keep track of their waste flows, environmental performance, and potential for valorization.

As the COO, I am getting the team ready for hyper-growth! We’re setting up processes, documentations, and departments to deliver some great value to our clients and partners.

I joined geoFluxus as they were completing their third month at the Arcadis City of 2030 Accelerator powered by Techstars. Excellent opportunity to be part of the Techstars family once again, and this time, as the member of a team!

Routines 🦍

I’m big on Self-Structure and morning routine. Not easy to keep with a baby, but we’re making it work thanks to my wonderful wife!

Monday: 30~45 minutes run 🏃
Tuesday: Strength training 🏋🏻‍♂️
Wednesday: 30~45 minutes run 🏃
Thursday: Yoga 🧘🏻‍♂️
Friday: Strength training 🏋🏻‍♂️
Saturday: 1 hr 30 run 🏃
Sunday: Yoga 🤸🏻‍♂️

I admit missing a session from time to time and had to recover for a bad ankle.
Consistency is becoming key!

How about meditation?
-> Haven’t been successful for the past 2 months but hoping to start again soon.
And 750 words a day?
-> Yes, doing it!
