Can you tell us a little about yourself?
My name is Romy Wauben and I am 24 years old, I studied hospitality management in Maastricht at Business School Notenboom and did the minor marketing and sales management; so all the theory and tool useful to build your own business. At that time, I knew already that I was going to create my own company.
I did internships in the fields of hospitality, design, event and marketing. I am very active and dynamic person, and I always wanted to do and realize things. So, two years after my graduation I started with Creamy Marketing.
What would you consider your distinctive achievement?
Finding a job that fits my different interests and passion isn’t easy, plus, I am a person that likes to follow the process of the project, from the concept to the actual realization, and work with different people that make it grow.
After a year I was always looking for a something new, new challenges new tasks and so on. So, at certain point, I decided to create the job of my dreams and see how the world will react.
What are the qualities needed to be able to achieve this?
Don’t give up, and enjoy the process.
Make mistakes but learn from it, and always work for the best.
Don’t let people stop you. Focus on your values and meaning in everything you do.
What are you looking forward to?
I look forward to work with more people, in a workspace where I can do more marketing and cultural events. Where each of us can bring in their specialties and together create something valuable.
This is also the reason why I live in Sittard. Because in Maastricht things are already happening but here, there is the opportunity to create something new and special. I really want to start making the difference in this city.
Which advice would you give to the other professional?
Do what you love and like what you do. That’s what I do, it’s my choice of being an entrepreneur. And always see the different opportunities that surround you.
What are the challenges that we need to overcome to make ‘cultural entrepreneurship’ more accessible?
To make more open spaces for young professionals, connect them with each other. Create a dialogue between the young generations of entrepreneur and the city in itself.
