Welcome, it’s good to see you here. We prepared this page for your reading pleasure.

Recently, I wanted to see the world and I quit everything I do to chase my dreams. While I’m writing this, I’m on the process of giving away most of the stuff I own in Istanbul and packing a bag of essentials to continue my business operations in London. And on this blog, I’m documenting my thoughts, telling my story and sharing everything I know about business for free.

You probably subscribed to a lot of newsletters at this point. But if you consider doing that again, I appreciate it if you subscribe to mine. I don’t have any automatized emails to trigger a sales funnel for a course. There’s no shame in that. It’s just not me. I like writing and I try to write every day. It adds up quickly when you do that and it’s a lot to follow. I believe a weekly newsletter is ideal to keep up with it.

Now, let’s look at the main parts of the website in alphabetical order:

Dirilliant Daily Drill

My personal, daily journal. The only part of this world where you cannot comment.

Here’s how it works:

  • I specifically designed the notebook above from recycled craft paper to write a journal.
  • Now, I either use my phone if I’m on the go or use my journal to write every single day -okay, I skipped one day so far.
  • Then, a few weeks later when it becomes alien to me, I copy it in here, write a headline and find a beautiful image to support the text.
  • We publish it after 24 days later.

Make More Money

This section is for people who want to read about business, leadership, marketing and time management.


I have been writing for a long time. At one point, my short stories opened the door and the scholarship to the advertising design master program. I wrote for TV ads, speeches, prints, website content, and so on. Although all of them were in Turkish, I like the act of writing.

And I love quotes. I see quotes as the most practical way of learning from someone.

To tell you the truth, I write quotes and occasionally the thoughts behind it for myself. However, you are more than welcomed to read them here.

Recently, we created an Instagram account and we are sharing the quotes from that account daily.


A list of services that you may need for your business operations -regardless of the sector you operate. We’ve been using almost all of them and I personally researched extensively for the few others.
