“If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine. It's lethal.”
- Paulo Coelho
Hello, I'm Elif. Thanks for stopping by!
Short background story: I was born and raised in Ankara, the capital of Turkey by amazing and inspiring parents who have backed me up with every decision I've made in my life and were crazy enough to send me away to Montreal, Canada when I was only 17. I completed my undergraduate degree in Political Sciences and Economics at McGill University and returned to Istanbul to kickstart my career in the corporate world. Doing an MBA degree at Bilgi University later helped me explore my passion in business: I was hooked onto content marketing, when it wasn't yet widely known in Europe. Soon after, my knowledge of content grew and I found myself in the wondrous world of inbound marketing. On a daily basis, my entrepreneurial mind and passion for inbound are working together to create adventurous ideas.
Over time, I've become an experienced inbound marketer and currently working remotely from Turkey. I work as the Global Account Manager in a 100% virtual digital marketing agency, Wings4U and I help companies reach their marketing potential and generate leads through effective marketing programs. I have worked with SaaS businesses for nearly 3 years, as well as significant corporate experience prior to that.
I have strong people skills, that enables me to successfully manage and collaborate with virtual teams and different cultures across regions. I am a productive and energetic team player.
I enjoy working in multicultural environments & where I can think freely. Since I've discovered that travelling and changing my surroundings once in a while is my biggest source of inspiration, I have been moving around and working from different cities around the world: Istanbul, Bali, Florence, Singapore and Bodrum recently. I expect the list to expand soon.
I live to travel more, write more, learn more and take more photos.
Creativity, can-do attitude and adaptability to ever-changing situations are my superpowers.
I love a good challenge!
