Polonapolona: an illustrator and a business woman

Written by

PolonapolonaPolona Pačnik, known by her brand 'polonapolona' is a slovenian illustrator, who started her own bussines couple of years ago. The idea hit her when she wisited Ikea and saw white coffee cups, calling her to draw something on that perfect whiteness.She named the collection ''The Distinguished Gentlemen & Honorable Ladies''. She draws famous people from popular culture and literature on coffee and tea sets. Everybody loves them!

Polona Pačnik danes živi svoj sanjski poklic ilustratorke, a preizkusila se je že na več področjih: po študiju modne ilustracije v Parizu je delala kot kostumografinja pa lastno modno podjetje je imela, celo marketing ji ni tuj. Kako to, da se je na koncu vrnila na začetek? "No, v resnici se nisem vrnila na začetek. Samo združila sem vse stvari, ki so mi ljube. Ko sem začela delati pod znamko PolonaPolona, se je vse uskladilo: moja ljubezen do risanja, leta, ki sem jih preživela na študiju ekonomije, izkušnje, ki sem jih dobila v modi, 'tezgarjenje' v marketingu ... pa seveda to, da res rada poležavam in berem, da me pisanje spravlja v dobro voljo, da sem prepričana, da je humor superiorna oblika izražanja inteligence, predvsem pa, da sem vedno hrepenela po ustvarjalni svobodi in adrenalinu, ki ti ga daje vodenje lastne blagovne znamke. Zdaj se počutim kot rockzvezda. Samo malo manj slavna."

The Power of Mentoring

Written by

The 100Mirrors project of Erasmus+ to make new educational materials for the motivation of entrepreneurial women is conducted by 8 organisations. (2 universities, 2 network and advisory organisations of entrepreneurial women, 1 social entrepreneurs foundation, 3 support to work organisations). In 7 countries, Spain, Greece,The NL, Austria, Slovenia, Czech Republic and Italy.
Our communication language is English.

We now have produced 100 new stories in texts and videos of role models in our countries, so women and students could identify themselves and be motivated to set steps in their own career.

The next step of the project team is producing guidelines, lessons, tools and tips for teachers, lecturers and career consultants of Universities and Higher professional education institutes.

During our transnational meeting to coordinate all our efforts in Amsterdam, we took the chance to present and share our tools and insights on the power of mentoring with entrepreneurs, workers, teachers, students and career consultants.
