Why did you decide to be engaged exactly in this activity? Tell about it.

At the age of 18 I graduated from the Philology High School, not knowing what way to choose next. I had no idea what career would fit me. Seeing the trend was going in this direction, I attended the faculty of economics. Now I realize I made a good choice back then because I like what I do, and I am pretty good at it.

 

Does your profession have advantages or disadvantages?

Of course, there are advantages and disadvantages like in any other profession. It seems to me that stress is the biggest enemy because I am usually assigned with tasks with a short deadline to fulfill.

 

What was the first obstacle you faced?

My timidity always stood in my way. Other more courageous colleagues got promoted far ahead of me. Only when I started managing my emotions I started developing.

 

When did you get your first results? What were they?

Shortly after hiring, I realized I was self-taught. Now I teach new things to those who initially trained me.

 

When did you feel a breakthrough? What was it like? Describe your emotions.

A few years ago I participated in very intensive training at the headquarters of the company, held by some colleagues with a very high IQ. I realized then that I was able to do much more than I did before because I was able to understand what they had taught me, and I was just waiting to come home and practice what I learned.

 

How much time do you spend on your work?

8 hours per day.

 

What advice helped you to find a way out of difficult situations?

This is not the end of the world, head up and go ahead.

 

Haven’t you got disappointed in your profession? Did you want to change your sphere?

It has come to my mind to change my sphere of activity because I was a little disappointed with the dishonest way in which many get promotions. I wanted to try to freelance or trade on the stock market. But my biggest dream is to open a beauty salon.

 

Do you think that a man can achieve success only in one sphere of activity?

I think not necessarily, but it depends on the person. I am aware of some successful people who, for various reasons, have drastically changed their career, and have also been successful in the new one.

 

What would you be able to give up your business for?

We never know what life has in store for us.

Maybe a disease that would threaten someone dear to me or family would make me quit everything, or maybe just at some point in my life, I will want to do something else.
