I am a 29-year-old entrepreneur, from Denmark and have founded X2Nails in april 2013 and X2Writer in 2016. In 2019 I was hired to primarily establish GEOit.dk and the replacement for the old website: BuyBackIT.dk
My educational path
I started out as a student-entrepreneur and completed a professional bachelor in international sales and marketing at ZIBAT, while also taking a bigger Negotiation course with the University of Michigan. After a few years of working as an entrepreneur I took a break from studying.
I have also taken a Game Theory course, at the Tokyo University, to understand what goes on in the background of politics and larger companies.
Entrepreneurship has given me great knowledge and experiences. I have even tried to be the boss once before and second time for two interns.
In 2020 I earned my Masters degree in Social Sience Law (mercantile). I am now specialized in European Data Protection Law (experience since 2018), Intellectual Property Law (Danish), Communication and rhetoric, Company Law (Danish) and Business Law. I have been working with the latter since 2013. I do also have some practical experience with Intellectual Property Law.
Since especially 2013 until now, I have also made most of the graphics that I put out there. I am self-taught, but I can do a pretty good job.
I recently took a course in IT-security too.
With experience and dedication you can something special!
I have made many mistakes, which has been a great learning process for me. Nevertheless years later, I have a great understanding and experience about all the different processes that goes on in a company. – Be it from getting the idea, packing the customers orders to signing important contracts. What I won customers on with X2Nails was with a main focus on quality nail products and a great customer service.
I have been a volunteer venture pilot at Mind Your Own Business, where I, with five other venture pilots helped 10 teenage boys startup a business, called S.I.D.O.
Inspiration is important for everyone and therefore I used to do speeches about my journey as an entrepreneur and how I got where I am today. I have been out telling about my journey.
I used to blog as a nail polish lover for X2Nails. I microblog on my Instagram and at X2Writer. I share my journey and what is important or me on this blog.
