Intro

Marketing gives us opportunities

My mission is to help you grow your business and have you creating a marketing mindset in a creative and innovative way, challenging your current knowledge and need. I truly believe that everyone can learn how to practice successful marketing techniques.

I am a person with lots of laughter, crazy ideas, a social personality, goal orientated mindset, dreams and focus. I know what I want and I go to get it. I am certain that life is about more than just spending time at work 9 to 5. Life is about living. Living here and now. Life doesn’t come in re-runs so presence is best. Make the most of that. My philosophy is that I am the only person responsible for my life and lifestyle, therefore, I create my life and lifestyle. I know this can sound really idealistic and unrealistic. But this is what I believe and live by.

I believe in ongoing and continuous personal development. Why? Let me tell you my story.
A few years back, I never dreamed that I would practice personal developement. In the beginning of 2013, I thought that I never would be happy again. Like so many others, I was stressed out. I was unhappy where I worked and more and more circumstances made my life darker than any other year I’d ever experienced.

I was getting more and more depressed. Which, totally was against my whole personality. People around me truly thought that I was happy – and I learnt how to become a master of disguise. Not telling anyone how I felt. They didn’t know that I, every coffee break, went to a shower room (which I knew was empty at that time) to practice a relaxation exercise so that my work wasn’t affected by what I was going through. I did this to survive the stress. Twice a day, I pushed the earplugs from my smartphone into my ears to do the exercise. It didn’t take long, 5-10 minutes. I didn’t really believe in it then but I did it anyway, I thought that I had to do something about my situation and this was like grasping for that something to change my situation.

During this time, I was lucky enough to come across a company called Avatarz, a company that focused on how you can identify and live your dream! I signed up and worked very hard, day by day, week by week, for nine months!

It saved me! It really did!

I started to realize many very important things about me, my life and my potential, and as a result I have reached goals and come so much closer to other set goals.

My Marketing Experience
One of my many passions is marketing. I have been working with marketing for most of my working life (over 15 years) and I have profound experience in many different areas in Marketing, both online and offline. I have enjoyed working in many different industries throughout my career such as airline, IT, insurance, and banking and industrial areas, both national and international. I’ve had the opportunity to work with marketing and communications, from strategy, layout, advertising, planning, analysis, research, conferences, trade shows to lead generation. Since I am a person that enjoy variety and multi-tasking – I can only say that it is exactly how I would describe my marketing career – and I have loved every minute of it.

My Dream come true
One of my dreams was to start “Änglahår för barn av barn”, a Swedish charity organization that helps children increase their self-esteem to its full potential. That is a journey that I can spend lots of time to talk about, so that requires its own explanation. But when I started to work on that, I realised that I had the potential to help others with their dreams. That is one of the reasons why I started Marketing Starts With You and decided to write a book about this topic.

What I learnt
No one can start a business without investment. Investments such as money, time and education. I want to work with people that want the same as me. Starting or owning their own business, getting closer to their goal and, possibly, and live their dream.

Here my journey continues… Welcome to my business and way of life!
I am looking forward to get to know you and help you to reach your full potential!

I hope that I can inspire you, help you and give you that little extra bit to your business and lifestyle that you are longing for.

This is me!
