Have you ever had the feeling that you want to do something great? Something that has the potential to change the world? Or maybe you just have a vision that you want to fulfill. I have had all these thoughts and I’ve decided to do my best to make them a reality. There are many ways you can do this; my way is by building a business. That is one of my strongest motivators in building something that I can be proud of.
For as long as I can remember I have been interested in style. It started at a very young age when my mother, who was a hairdresser, used to color my hair (using a spray which was easily washed away). However it wasn’t until later, many years later, that my passion for watches really took off.
After I graduated from school I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do. Study more? Nah. While I do find it interesting I also believe books and experience teaches me more than most teachers can. I was more set on working, but I wasn’t interested in the normal 9-5 job. I wanted to do something else, but I just didn’t know what. It took a while, but when me and Elias talked about starting up a business regarding watches I knew it was a case closed. I imagined the possibilities we had, how we could create the image of the world that rests in our mind waiting to be unleashed. I also realized that it was my biggest opportunity to create an impact on my life. Combining these two thoughts ultimately became my reason to create a business. It is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I not only get to deal with the things I love such as style, by designing new timepieces with different straps and so on – I also get the chance to do what I dream of, changing the world.
Of course, owning a business has its pros and cons, as does life in general. What I also know is that the pros clearly outweigh the cons, without a doubt. I am very grateful to get this opportunity and truly hope you guys will join us at Helvin in trying to make the world a better place.
