Dare to go on

When I was 18 years old, I went to a university in a different country, deciding to take full responsibility for my life and pay all my bills myself. And this was one of the best decisions I have ever made even though I had to fight to make enough money to pay for the basic needs such as food and accommodation, all while studying at the university. At the same time, I launched an online hockey magazine that became very popular, gaining more than 100 000 fans on social media. Later on, I found myself in a different challenge. Together with my business partner, we created a planner aimed to help people increase their productivity by organizing their life. We wanted to gain the initial funds by using crowdfunding, but our Kickstarter campaign failed really hard. Despite that, we didn´t give up and continued to work on it. A year later, we gave it a second go and after overcoming many obstacles, we pulled off a successful crowdfunding campaign that enabled us to ship our Everest Planner to the whole world. Coming from my experience, I strongly believe that everyone is fully responsible for creating their own reality. If you´re not satisfied with your life, just take the matters into your hands and preserve the effort until your dreams come true.
