About Aure's Notes

Hey, I’m Aure! 

Born in Belgium, I lived in 8 different countries (Belgium, Australia, Spain, Netherlands, France, Colombia, Poland, Estonia, where I currently reside) in seven years. 

I have a Bsc in communication, a Msc in business management, and another Msc in political science and European studies. 

It may seem impressive, but it really isn’t. 

When I realized university taught me useless knowledge (nothing I could make money with), my real education began. 

I fell in love with learning actual stuff and started writing down everything I found valuable. 

Now I share all of my insights here, on Aure’s Notes. 

While the core topics are business, entrepreneurship, and self-development, I frequently add articles on different subjects that I find important to build a healthy, wealthy, and happy life. 

What to Expect Out of Aure's Notes

  1. No ads
  2. Quality over everything else: I only publish something when it is worth publishing.
  3. Transparency and honesty: All opinions are genuine and honest. That doesn’t mean I will not change my mind in the future. 
Also, this website is primarily addressed to a European audience. 
Everyone can read Aure’s Notes, but the blog is written from a European perspective, with everything it entails.

How to Use Aure's Notes

The section summaries contains summaries of books and videos. 

The section articles hosts all of the articles I have written.

The section resources hosts how-to guides as well as directories of websites, books, Youtube channels, newsletters, podcasts, people, and tips and tricks on various topics. 

Finally, the section Billionaire Series is a series of twenty one articles that analyze and deconstruct how billionaires started, grew, and scaled their companies. 

Visual and Non-Visual Glossary

“<” means “is smaller/worse than”. Eg: Vegan diet < keto diet. Translation: vegan is worse than keto. 

“>” means “is bigger/better than”. 

“X” means “time” as in an equation. 3 X 5 = 15. 

I use the 00h00 to 23h59 European time system. 

5h00 is 5am, 15h00 is 3pm. 00h00 is midnight, and 12h00 is lunch time.

When something is important, I put it in bold or in giant quote. When something is capital, I put it in red (unless otherwise specified).

What's the Newsletter About?

The newsletter is sent every first day of the month, once a month. It is:

  • A list of all of the articles I have written during the previous month
  • The goals I have achieved during that month
  • The goals I am going to achieve next month

I want to motivate you to work on your own goals and show you that it’s possible to achieve them.

Consider it a monthly reminder to assess your situation and adjust.
