hi. i'm milITSA CHERVENKOVA
А few words from me
You already know my name. But it may take more time to get to know my personality; introverts are hard to get sometimes.
I hope the work I plan to put through milachervenkova.rocks will be sufficient to show that I talk the talk and walk the walk.
I have very diverse interests. The main topics I will cover are building and growing niche websites, SEO, personal development, productivity systems, and business philosophy.
Thus, I will write a lot on the importance of the relationship between health and being a sane founder or salaried employee.
Lastly, expect this website to change often. I am a big Kanban and Agile evangelist; thus, experimentation, feedback, and continuous improvement are part of this website's growth.
Let's rock together!
I'm fortunate that Marketing is my vocation and avocation.
What's the meaning
The logo symbolizes the many unknown paths an extra-preneur will take while giving everything to build its dream business.
I call myself an extra-preneur. In my head, extra-preneur is someone who is putting the "extra" in everything one does. Do you see the gap between the intertwined paths? Well, that's the "extra" effort needed to connect your first step with your end goal.
But as you can see, it won't be easy, there are many paths, and the many paths can be deceiving. The extra-preneur is not afraid to put the "extra" effort, even when knowing that some paths are watered, others gravelly.
There will be ups and downs, slips and rises. Extra-preneurship is the only way I know to live my life. I genuinely hope this is the only way to live your best life too, my dear reader.
*extra-preneur = "someone who puts the extra in everything one does" (my own term).
*marketing diva = "na-na-na, diva is a female version of a hustla, of a, of a hustla, of a, of a hustla" - Diva, Beyonce.

Being real can't be faked.
Marketing rules the world.
Creating a life is priceless.
Work without flow perishes.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH
NOV 2012 - APR 2016
I landed my first job in the corporate world. I worked for the biggest Bulgarian IT outsourcing company for nearly four years. I changed two positions there. Eventually, I had enough. And I quit to pursue my own projects.
MAY 2016 - SEP 2017
During my corporate job, I've built several niche websites that were earning some $$$. They needed optimization. And so I optimized them. Their growth revealed a new world to me without working "9 to 5."
OCT 2017 - DEC 2019
Flow-e by Kanbanize
I received a pleasant call with the offer to take the marketing and growth position in a small Bulgarian start-up called Flow-e. I said, yes. I had the best two years in my life while helping to build and grow the product.
JAN 2020 - PRESENT
The Best Job
Currently, I am in the present. I am working on the many websites and projects I have. I am still tasting the freedom of choices. It's the best time to be alive. And it's the best time to create your own future. This is the Best Job.
Isn't about Credentialism
Strategic Marketing | Project Management | MBA
COTRUGLI Business School / Croatia / Serbia
In 2015, I took two modules from an MBA program. I would not repeat it. From my experience, these days, we have an enormous amount of more affordable education online. I just can't see myself paying 50K euro for an MBA diploma.
SEPT 2008 - JUNE 2012
Bachelor's degree, Tourism and Travel Service Management
Plovdiv / Bulgaria

SEPT 1996 - JUNE 2008
Startsevo / Bulgaria
I went to my hometown school. I had some of the best years in my life there. I never went to a boujee school, but let me tell you - I did pretty good in life. What matters is the work you are willing to put and your willingness to put the work towards your goals.
