The summary in English:
For listeners who are unfamiliar with MIXvoip, it is a telecom operator offering telephony and Internet services for businesses that currently employs 52 people. The company has recently established itself in Belgium and Germany:
“We gave ourselves a year to hire people and find customers, we succeeded. ” says the founder of MIXvoip, while acknowledging that these markets are very difficult.
“I am able to work for hours, days, weeks without losing motivation. Me, my laptop, a desk and I work” explains Loïc Didelot.
This echoes the song he chose: Sinner Man by Nina Simone. He used to listen to it for hours while programming when he created MIXvoip.
As a funny situation, Loïc Didelot remembered his professional beginnings, he was then 21 years old and had little experience. At a professional fair, he had been invited by surprise to come on stage, “I answered the two or three questions, but I think my answers were not satisfying”, a good lesson to improve oneself.
If he had been 18 today, he could have been in a reality TV. “At 18, you have the right to make mistakes, you don’t have a job and it can be an easy income”.
When asked which personality marked him, Loïc designated one of his employees. A young man applied for a technician position, saying that he had no idea about the job but that he was a hard-worker. “He was very direct and we thought he was very nice, we hired him. He’s still there and still works well, he used to be a dishwasher. “A nice story of professional retraining.https://www.youtube.com/embed/1vDZsABHUbQ?rel=0&wmode=opaque
