A decision and a beginning

Share on Facebook

All stories has a beginning, regardless what story. That's why my blog beginns with how it all started. How did I get the crazy idea to leave everything and throw myselfe into a totally diffrent culture?

In January this year I met Erik on my, at the time, boyfriends party. First time I met Erik was one year earlier when he just arrived back home from China, where he had been working and studying for a few years. But this time we got to talk more. He told me about all amazing things that he had experienced in Asia, it made me dream away. Alreddy Erik spoke of returning to Asia, I said I would love to help him with a few things. We decided to have a meeting since we got along so well.

After a few meetings and events that I took him to he told me about his idea, to import scandinavian
interior design to the South Korean market. South Korea tend to fall inbetween the giants China and Japan so it was a really clever idéa to beginn in South Korea, easier to start a business there and then get established in whole of Asia.
Erik asked me if I would like to be his co-owner and college since I got knowledge he hasen't and the other way around. I got experence in social media, consulting, building websites, project leading, graphic design, AD, e-commerce solutions, marketing and print. Exactly the profession that the project would need.

In February I had to make a dessision of what path I wanted to go. I had been planning on getting a job in Gothenburg, my home town, and my own appartment but I quickly made up my mind because you only get this opportunity once in youre life. Gothenburg will always be there and I always have the opportunity to return. ”You rarely regret what you've done, but what you haven't done”, like my wise father told me.

Therefore I stopped looking for a job and appartment, instead I took this chans and leap of faith! In over half a year we have planned and been working hard for this. The time have just been flying by – something that just started as an idea has now turned into reality. And now my life beginns here in Seoul.

In my blogg I will be talking about everything I experince and do in the contry on the other side of the world, how it is to be an entreprenure in a diffrent culture and so much more.
