I am a seasoned and experienced Swiss entrepreneur with a strong background in sales and marketing. I have been interested in owning my own business since I was a child watching my Grandfather run his own successful company. I spent my weekends and holidays working in his business which taught me how hard work and perseverance could lead to achieving any objective. My Grandfather inspired a love of creation and helpfulness in me that I carry through all of my endeavors.
In 2009 at the age of 26, I launched my first business, a marketing and entrepreneur coaching agency, and used a new business model to develop a network of highly qualified freelancers, which was extremely innovative at the time. In 2010, I launched a second venture which offered a discounted ski pass and was the first to market with this type of offer and resulted in immediate success. I ran each of these businesses until 2016 when an exceptional opportunity allowed me to sell both businesses and start a new adventure.
After my early business success, I was ready for new ideas and a new undertaking. My wife, Christel, and I moved from Switzerland to Thailand in 2016 and Bali in 2017 to experience new cultures and lifestyles and fulfill our passion for travel. While in South East Asia, I was able to continue my work coaching entrepreneurs through their startup and growth phases. I also launched a cycling website lending my expertise to the cycling and triathlon communities and later sold that site in 2018.
I am a devoted husband to my wife whom I married in 2018 after a 20-year relationship. She is a finance expert, yoga teacher, and holistic therapist. She inspires me every day to help others and live a fulfilling life.
