What do I do best?
Hmm this is a hard one. But I believe I´m the best in doing what I love the most. Which is working out- building my body and making it stronger everyday.
What makes me the best version of myself?
The characteristic that has gotten me where I am today is definitely my drive to give the best I got and work toward my goals every single day. Even when things have gone bad, I have kept pushing myself and never even thought of giving up. I always give 100% to everything I do.
What are my aspirations?
I would say my biggest aspiration is to be able to continue making a living of doing what I love. As well as be able to inspire others on their Fitness journeys and hopefully make a change on someone's life by helping them achieve their goals.
My Biggest Success?
I have to say that my biggest success to this date has been building my own company (being able to work for myself) and moving away from cold Finland (my childhood dream was to live somewhere warm & sunny).
This all happened after graduating from business school with a bachelor's degree, working free for 6 months at an advertising agency in hopes of getting the job. And then finally searching for a job for over a year - writing over 100 job applications, went to dozens of job interviews and every single time getting a no for an answer.
My Most Challenging Moment?
My most challenging moment was when I decided to start pursuing my own company and fitness full time after almost every single person in my life said it could never work.
“You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.”
My Favorite People/Role Models?
My absolute favorite person is of course my fiance. He has stood by me, believed in me and build everything to where I am today with me.
My role models are all the entrepreneurs who are proving people wrong every single day by making success out of what they love.
My Favorite Places/Destinations?
I have traveled quite a lot but I have to say that the places where I have felt completely at home is Florida/ USA- I spent a year there studying abroad when I was 17 and Spain where I´m living at the moment. Still hoping I would be able to move back to USA someday.
My Favorite Products/Objects?
I have to say it´s my phone. I do all my work with it and would be absolutely lost without.
My Current Passions?
Most definitely fitness but can't really say it's my current passion. Because its has been my passion for the past 7 or 8 years now haha. It's what I absolutely love doing more than anything else and everything I do on daily basis is built around it.
