In our Featured Story Series (FSS), we connected with the Luxembourger and founder of GemStals, Verena Miller. We have a particular fondness for entrepreneurs, and today we would like to introduce you to one Verena Miller, who believes that our connection to the natural, outer world and elements opens the gates to access the energy all around us and to tap into the magic inside you. Let's have a quick introduction about yourself. Where are you from and what do you do? Hi, my name is Verena and I’m from the North of Germany. I’ve been living in Luxembourg for 5 years and been working for the airline industry for the majority of my work life. Travelling, new cultures, people, cuisines and unique experiences have always drawn me in. I like to experience the energy of places. What's your entrepreneurial journey? How did you get started with GemStals? I started GemStals about exactly 2 years ago with the intention to share the energy of crystals with Luxembourg and beyond. My first experiences with crystals goes back many years. I bought a hand-made necklace with a large, shiny and naturally formed Labradorite at a yoga retreat. Whenever I wore the necklace I could feel the energy of transformation, calmness and bravery. It supported me like a talisman through some rough patches in my life. The energy of the stone helped me understand myself better. I gathered many crystals over the years but this one was different. I knew it came from a resourceful place, was naturally formed and had been treated with good intention. Crystals are objects of energy. They naturally carry energy, absorb and give. There are many crystal companies out there, who sell crystals which have been artificially coloured, or been in the tumbler machine for weeks to look a certain way, have been unethically sourced and so on. What I was searching for and finally found was a family company from Brazil, which has the same focus on sustainability, natural condition, ethical work environment and keeping the crystals in their most natural form possible. GemStals.com is my passion project to share the energy of crystals, one stone at a time. What is the importance of your product? Who should wear/carry your product? Natural beauty and energy, lots of good energy. People who like to connect with elements from the earth. What are you most proud of about GemStals? The success we’ve been having at all exhibitions we go to. GemStals has a small, always changing product range but people seem to really connect with our products, which makes me very happy. What are your hobbies and interests? Yoga, astrology, astrocartography,, spending time in the outdoors, live concerts What's your favorite spot in Luxembourg? The Bambesch What's your favorite quote? Energy goes where intention goes What would you say would be the recommendations of people who want to start their own business today? Connect with people in your branch, learn from them, share ideas and give support where you can. Let your passion be the driver. Visit and shop: gemstals.com/onlineshop

In our Featured Story Series (FSS), we connected with the Luxembourger and founder of LuxLessons, Sven Ehmann. We have a particular fondness for entrepreneurs, and today we would like to introduce you to one Sven Ehmann, who has an immense love for languages and enables people to learn Luxembourgish fast. Let's have a quick introduction about yourself. My name is Sven, I am a 28-year-old Luxembourg native from the heart of Luxembourg. As a digital entrepreneur and educator, I am proud to have founded LuxLessons.lu, a state-of-the-art online platform designed to empower students to master a substantial amount of Luxembourgish in just three months. What's your entrepreneurial journey? How did you get started with LuxLessons.lu? My journey into teaching Luxembourgish began at University, where I quickly recognized the great demand for modern, forward-thinking Luxembourgish instruction tailored to the unique language learning needs of expats residing in Luxembourg. At the time, I was pursuing a master's degree in conference interpreting for Arabic, a language I successfully mastered in just over five years. I started to contemplate how I could leverage my distinctive expertise in learning languages to facilitate the most effective and efficient way for students from all corners of the globe to acquire Luxembourgish. This lead me to start the Luxembourgish learning platform LuxLessons.lu Unlike conventional language schools that often employ a one-size-fits-all approach, my aim was to develop a teaching methodology that takes into account the specific circumstances and challenges faced by expats learning Luxembourgish. It's essential to acknowledge that, for many expats, the return on investment in learning Luxembourgish can be quite limited, and this reality should be addressed in the teaching process. What services does LuxLessons offer? Who should contact you? Anyone interested in learning Luxembourgish and getting Luxembourg citizenship. Unlike traditional options, LuxLessons.lu prioritizes practical language skills over unnecessary content. Its streamlined approach ensures rapid Sproochentest proficiency and equips you with the Luxembourgish skills that truly matter. The course ensures every moment you invest propels you towards fluency. After conquering the Sproochentest and obtaining Luxembourgish citizenship, I’m sure the robust communication skills cultivated in the course will continue to advance your language journey. And even if Luxembourgish isn't a future necessity for you (which – again – is the case for most people), you’ll have achieved a swift test success worth celebrating. What are you most proud of about LuxLessons? My most gratifying moments are those when students proudly share their amazing test results with me. It's incredibly fulfilling to know that I could contribute to simplifying and accelarating their Luxembourgish learning process and them getting the citizenship of my home country. I’m proud to help them further indulge themselves in Luxembourg’s culture and society. What are your hobbies and interests? In addition to my passion for language learning, I have a great love for basketball, world literature, geopolitics, and Arabic calligraphy. What's your favorite spot in Luxembourg? There are countless hidden gems in Luxembourg, but since I know that many expats don’t venture far beyond Ettelbruck, I'd suggest simply getting lost amid the serene landscapes of Kautebaach or Klierf and immersing yourself in the breathtaking natural beauty. Also I’d recommend the picturesque vineyards surrounding Remich. What's your top 3-recommendations for a newcomer in Luxembourg? You may get a culture shock and it may be a little cringe but go to the local parties in the centre and north of Luxembourg called “Baler” (lit. bals) or one of the “Wäifester” (wine fests) during summer in one of the wine producing towns along the Musel. In Schweidsbéng there’s one where they hook up wine to the village fountain, meaning you can literally drink wine from a fountain Most Luxembourgers speak English so it’s a great opportunity to make Luxembourgish friends which can make your settling down in Luxembourg much easier. This can otherwise be quite difficult when they sit in their public sector offices all day. It’ll also give you an additional incentive to learn Luxembourgish. What's your favorite quote? It’s from a famous 13th century persian poet and scholar called Jalāl Al-Dīn Ar-Rūmi. Translated it reads something like: Farewell only happens to those loving with their eyes. As for those loving with his heart and soul, for there will never be goodbye. )الوداع لا یقع إلا لمن یعشق بعینیھ أما ذاك الذي یحب بروحھ وقلبھ فلا ثمة انفصال أبدا( What would you say would be the recommendations of people who want to start their own business today? I’d recommend taking it step by step and not letting yourself get overwhelmed and paralysed by the entirety of the daunting road ahead. I’d also recommend making use of modern technology such as artificial intelligence, which can save a lot of time with basic tasks. If you like to reach Sven, here is where you can do just that: luxembourgexpats.lu/local-business/books-languages-learning-and-training/1100001344

In an era marked by significant disruptions, the traditional concept of office life has undergone a profound transformation. With the advent of communication tools such as email and video conferencing, the tether to a physical workplace has been effectively severed, offering a tantalizing prospect for those yearning to break free from the monotony of a fixed location. The allure of relocating to sunnier, more affordable, or simply more enjoyable destinations has never been stronger. As countries across the world have reopened their borders to travelers, a shift towards prioritizing longer-term stays over fleeting vacations has taken hold. At the forefront of this trend, some nations have gone so far as to position themselves as idyllic havens for remote work, enticing digital nomads with innovative 'digital nomad' visas, granting the privilege to live and work in picturesque locales for extended periods, ranging from one year to even longer. Here is an insightful guide to the current list of countries offering digital nomad visas and the qualifying criteria for each. Furthermore, discover what it genuinely means to embrace the digital nomad lifestyle and gain valuable insights into how you can embark on this exciting journey. Top Destinations for Digital Nomad Visas 1. Spain: Spain's eagerly awaited digital nomad visa, part of the country's Startup Act, permits individuals to live and work remotely for an initial year, with the option to apply for temporary residency thereafter. Qualification requires a minimum monthly income of €2,200 (£1,890 or $2,415), with at least 80% of income originating from sources outside Spain. 2. Greece: Greece beckons remote workers with its digital nomad visa, granting non-EU citizens the opportunity to reside and work in the country for an initial 12 months. Eligibility criteria include a monthly income of at least €3,500 (£3,030 or $3,630), health insurance, proof of accommodation, and a clean criminal record. 3. Indonesia: If a poolside lifestyle appeals to you, Indonesia, including the famed island of Bali, may be your ideal destination.
