What does a typical work day look like for you?

25/7 of ideas flowing, brainstorming, decisions, discussions, messages, calls, emails, meetings. New Chainy Family members.

What are the main skills have you developed since working in a start-up?

How to work within your own team effectively and the most important skill ever - how to listen.

What are the challenges of working in an entrepreneurial environment?

Operation within conditions of constant uncertainty. And that is what makes it interesting and beautiful.

How does your current role reflect your overall career plan?

It’s a logical development of my life’s journey - to be able to build something scalable that helps people and their careers. 

Do you have any top tips for any students considering entrepreneurship as a viable career path?

Begin as early as you can - if you can begin at 16 - do it. Because you will regret that you have not started earlier.
