Hyvää Yrittäjän päivää! Today is the day of the entrepreneur in Finland and that had me reflect on my almost three years of being self-employed. Running your own business as a foreigner is challenging, there’s no denying that. But I also had to acknowledge, that the last years have been extremely exciting and with many ups and downs, but mainly I have learned a lot. From my peers, from projects and from putting myself out there. Hopefully some of this will be helpful, regardless if you’re looking for a job, planning on or having your own business.
Not only is Christmas around the corner, but if you happen to be on the lookout for a Finnish present for someone – this post is for you. I like to gift people with items they will connect with or that make them think of me (hopefully) in the future. For Finland lovers, Finland expats, design enthusiasts or maybe just to inspire someone to discover the Finnish Design scene!
