"Being a single, foreign businesswoman here in Plovdiv is definitely not an advantage but I see so much potential here"

In our series devoted to all those cool people who have chosen to settle in the city under the hills, we continue with our third guest.

Angela moved here in June last year and since September she has her own business called Nyvista (www.nyvista.com). She is a business developer and coach and her focus is on intercultural skills, improving the workflow in small and medium-sized companies, helping them with new markets and business ideas. Further, she also offers life coaching for those who are in or close to a burn-out.

Being a single, foreign businesswoman here in  Plovdiv is definitely not an advantage but Angela sees so much potential here, as more and more expats are coming to Plovdiv to start their own business but then struggle with lack of knowledge of the mentality and habits.

She speaks 5 languages: German, English, Italian, Swedish and French and we from the digital guide’s team are wishing her to add very soon Bulgarian to the list.

And here are the answers of the always smiling Angela in our traditional questionnaire, with which we found out what attracts her to Plovdiv and where she likes to "get lost" in the city on the seven hills:
