1, What are you most proud of about yourself?
That I dared to invest in a career while having 3 children very close together. I was at the crossroads of working at my old job, or investing in my own business. I thought you had to choose a career or be a mom. I dared and today I'm a fantastic mom, and self-employed and I'm balancing it gallantly.
You have to dare to win.
2, What qualities are you inspired by in others?
People who believe in themselves and dare to go for their dreams.
3, Who inspires you? Why?
My sister Linda Hellqvist. Every year she climbs higher and higher on the career ladder and she is a sought-after name in online marketing, and many companies have fought to get her. She impresses me with her determination, knowledge and her "reading head" We didn't get the same genes and sometimes I wish I had an ounce of that gene.
4, What is everyday luxury for you?
When I get home before everyone else and can have a cup of coffee on the couch and enjoy the silence, or put on a good series while waiting for the family to come home. With 4 children and 3 companies, there is rarely a quiet moment, so just a few minutes is a luxury.
5, What is your best tip for getting through the day? Do you have a really good life hack?
Planning is key. I know I need to eat well and exercise to keep up with my busy life, so it's important that I plan for it. Food boxes are packed and training dates are booked. Sometimes the time is not enough and then I can have 20-30min between meetings where I maximize the time with a short workout, and there is my lifehack rubber band. Always have small rubber bands with you in your bag so you can sit in the office and train empty.
6, What is your best/most important garment in your everyday life?
Workout clothes are what I live in during the day, but otherwise I love jeans and a nice t-shirt, with a jacket. Simple and comfortable, but still stylish.
