35 years in the making. ⏰ 
.
You have probably experienced a lot in life. In the picture I am 12 years old, and I smile when I realise what has made me the person I am today. 
.
Growth can arise for very different reasons… Let me tell you how it was for me. 💬
.
As a child, I was often very sad, insecure, and didn’t really feel comfortable. Today I realise some family issues triggered my insecurities back then. 
.
When I wanted peace and quiet, I did thinks where I could control the outcome myself and didn’t rely on anyone else. I went to my grandparents’ workshop and worked on my own small projects. My friends were already extremely important to me back then, and I often went on adventures with them like camping in vineyards, building treehouses and exploring the sewers under our town. 
.
As I got older, my first girlfriend had an extremely positive influence on me. She showed me what was necessary to do well in school. She spent a lot of time teaching me how to study. I am very grateful to her for that. Later, life took me to many different places and eventually, I met Roman - my business partner and good friend - in 2016 in Rosenheim. 🇩🇪
.
What I have learned and want to share with you is that the highs and lows, dead ends, and lonely paths are part of life. 📈 It is important to take responsibility for determining your own direction. For me, the path can be twice as hard and more uncomfortable than following the crowd, but that means freedom and responsibility to me. 
. 
I will never give up this freedom and my network of friends. Many people wonder about my energy and my personal commitment to my decisions. 💪🏼 For me, it is easy to understand I never want to be in a situation again where I cannot influence the circumstances of my life. 
.
Enjoy everyday of your life, 
.
Marc.

We started supporting a client with the certification of their app as a medical device 6 months ago. I will show you know the main 4 Elements that were needed for the CE Certified Medical App (class 1) in Germany (EU). 📲🇩🇪
 .
1️⃣ Instruction for Use: Medical purpose, patient disclosure, privacy policy
2️⃣ Emergency Assistance: Official contact personnel for emergency situations - telephone and e-mail 
3️⃣ Sales Process and Marketing: Therapeutic Products Advertising Act and Act against Unfair Competition
4️⃣ General Terms and Conditions (AGB): Terms of use + warranty + cancellation policy
 .
I hope you found these tips helpful 💡when you are developing YOUR own medical app in the EU… 
and if you don’t wanna do it yourself, contact us and let us help. ✉️

Have a good weekend.
