Fond of personal efficiency and time-management. Over thousand people visited my seminars and webinars and inspired me to share my knowledge and create this online course.

I tried all the techniques and systems I talk about in this course myself, thus my narrative comes from a very personal place.

I work as a business development manager in a large international software development company.

My mission is to help my family, other people and organizations to achieve their long-terms goals and lead a happier life. With the death of my father I realized I cannot wait anymore and started moving towards my dream - my own start-up in the field of personal efficiency and artificial intelligence. This course is one of my first steps towards my dream.
