Life. I have to pinch myself to check if I’m dreaming or not. I have officially started my own business, Berget Marketing. I have quit my job.
I have been working at a public college for the past 10 years, and at a public University before that. I thought that I would stay at the college forever. I even invited our enemies inside – and it’s already a thing of the past.
It’s hard to explain what it feels like to me, but being on a very fast rollercoaster for a guy that is afraid of rollercoasters, that’s close to what it feels like. I’m usually the one standing on the ground with a coca-cola zero in my hand. I don’t like rollercoasters. And I’m afraid of heights.
It’s Friday. I’m at home, inside my office, and I have turned the lights off. I enjoy the darkness. Even though the noises from kids playing outside are still there, it feels like the noises are far away when it’s dark. It’s like the noises are something completely different, a sound from the past.
I’m thinking about what’s been happening to me for the past year, and I realize that I am not the shy guy that I used to be. I’m more confident than ever (in a good way). I have read books about self development, and I have been focused on finding my passion. But, I didn’t realize that things change fast when you are ready.
And I’m ready.
The part where I say yes
I enjoy the pressure. That’s why I love competition, and I have a strong feeling that I am doing the right thing. It was a huge surprise to my friends and to my parents. But, Berget Marketing is real and it has already become a big part of me and who I am. What surprised me, was that I said yes to be interviewed by the brilliant Sonia at Logallot. I never thought that I would be interviewed by anyone, and I never thought that anyone would be interested in reading about me, and actually, I never thought that I would be brave enough to say yes to an interview.
Read the interview and let me hear your thoughts.
