Good job Magdalena Bibik-Westerlund

Good job – or not at all, right?

I might be a pragmatic elitist (I admit!) but I do believe that you either do a good job – or don’t do the job at all. Put your heart in it a 100% or don’t even bother. This should be natural state of mind for every professional on the planet. Right?  For me, it’s not even about the end results. Everyone is a newbie at some point, and you can not demand the same from a ...

Happy 40th to my best friend!

Everyone should have a best friend, a person you share the good and the bad in life with, a person who questions you when needed and pushes you to become the best version of yourself. My best friend is Åsa Wallenrud and today is her 40th birthday!!    We got to know each other about 10 years ago at SATS. She came to my dance classes, and was a real sceptic at first, haha!

Welcome to an Entrepreneur’s reality. It ain’t all roses. In a couple of weeks (2 weeks exactly at ...
zumo rescue dog magdalena bibik-westerlund

One year with a rescue dog.

Sharing a life with a dog is my default happy state of mind. Due to work, travels and lack of time (and the fact that it’s pure cruelty to introduce an active puppy to an old cat who just wants to have chill golden years) we have been dogless for a long time. That all changed when a rescue dog, doberman/border collie mix named Zumo came into our lives exactly one year ago today, and ...
