The Man, The Myth, The Legend

Meet Johan

Hi! I’m Johan. I’m an educator, trainer, speaker, leader and entrepreneur from Gothenburg, Sweden who loves to teach, create and innovate. I haven’t worked a single day in my life.. I do what I love doing and are passionate about. I got myself a so called regular work “as a hobby” to have a new challenge within marketing. I do what I want to, not what I have to! People ask me if I would have chosen anything differently if I could relive my life again and the answer is NO. Every coin’s got a flip-side and there’s positive and negative events but I choose to flip the positive side and focus on that.

On top of that I had another career as a trainer running a club and to many seminars. Being 5 days a week at the office meant I was missing a ton of time away from my family and even the “26 hour day” wasn’t enough. The funny thing is, I was working for a very good company and I had a very good position. But my train of thought was: if I can’t be happy working at this company, with all the perks this implies, I’ll never be happy at any other regular job. I made it my mission to focus on my true passion teaching, training and coaching and just quit asap. Fast forward thirteen years later and here I stand as an international seminar conductor. I manage an organization and staff of full time and part time team members  scattered on 4 different continents, from Sweden to Perth. And while growing my first company was a ton of work, It was also a ton of fun: the entrepreneurial lifestyle allowed me to travel the world as I wished while creating a sustainable business.   Now although it might sound like it, it hasn’t been years of holidaying, far from it. I tend to work very hard for periods of time (think 16+ hours day for many days in a row), then take it easy and work at my pace (in... read more
