Many businesses start with a simple presence on a Facebook business page or an Site-Builder. And there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s just important to realize that you don’t have total control over those platforms and you’ll likely be limited in terms of what you can do there. Plus, most ecommerce marketplace sites take a cut of your sales.

People often ask me, how I manage reading so many books while growing my own company and having a busy everyday life. It’s quite simple and I want to share my experience with you.


The first time I really enjoyed reading was five years ago. I read a great novel and I thought “wow, this is how fun reading can be”. Then I moved on to the next one, and the next one, and the next one… Suddenly reading wasn’t that funny anymore for me. …

No moves done without headphones. Stepping out of the office, first thing I do — headphones! Stepping out of my flat — same thing!

Sometimes I catch myself talking to people with my headphones on. I personally hate it when someone is talking to me with his headphones on. It’s disrespecting, like “nah, you’re not that important for me to take my headphones out of my ears”.

When I realized, that I am always, literally always listening to music, I said to myself “let’s try the opposite”. Said and done, that day I left my headphones in the pocket.
