The coolest job in the world
Is being an entrepreneur. Ever since I was a young boy, I realized that you can do what you love and make a good living out of it. I started out as a DJ, developed my sound equipment rental business, co-started an online DJ equipment store.

My job description: "inspire people"
My work as a trainer is to empower people to tap their creative potential and uplift them to get excited about their lives. I am often invited to give inspirational speeches, moderate conferences, deliver idea development workshops and personal development seminars. I have had the pleasure to work with about 600 groups in 12 countries around Europe.
Every problem is an opportunity to create. I love to create.
Whenever I feel that something important is missing, I create it. Could not find a good resource for inspiration and personal development - created the Estonian Inspiration portal. Fell in love with storytelling - created the Storyteller web app. Saw that too many youngsters could not find "their thing" - created the Passionfinder web app.
Surround yourself with positively charged people

Enthusiasm and inspiration based on solid and systematic wisdom
I attained an MBA degree in Entrepreneurship and Technology Management, specializing in Entrepreneurship pedagogy. Before that I did my BA in Entrepreneurship Economics and Applied Psychology in Tartu University. My main area of research was creativity in organizations and developing creative mindset and skills through trainings.
