I was tired of someone else deciding my future for me. Blagovest, Euroway Trakiya
„I decided to start my own business because I was tired of someone else deciding my future for me. I’ve always been a good employee – responsible and hardworking. But I thought that with the skills I have I can create something better and invest in my own future.
That’s how I opened a franchise courier service. I’ve worked in the field for 7 years and having my own business for 3 years. Big challenge! I can remember my toughest situation. It came when I decided to start another business alongside the courier service. I invested all the money I had saved in it. But at that same time my main competitor in the courier business was able to draw in my biggest client and my business was left without its primary source of income. It was a big shock for me and led to big changes – I had to let people go and minimized all expenses. I borrowed money from friends just to stay on the surface.
I learnt a valuable lesson from that period – don’t jump without being ready in a field you don’t know. I thought that I would succeed but I had no experience or knowledge in this business and I failed. I lost a lot of money but I value the experience I got. Fortunately I was able to recover and move forward.”
„What battles did you have to go into to be the person you are today?“
„I totally changed when it comes to money. I realized that I’ve been managing it emotionally and now I manage them by priority. I would never go emotionally into business again, no matter what it’s about. Emotions cloud your thinking.”
„What do you think is most valuable in business?“
„Attitude – I treat the packages of my customers as if they were my own and that helps me to do my job to the best of my ability.”
