About me

Hi there! First of all, great to have you here and thanks for giving me your attention. My name is Thomas. I am a professor at Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences in Austria / Europe, an entrepreneur and a psychologist. I started this publication to help those who want to explore opportunities, realize ideas, and get the most out of life. I have the pleasure of being involved for many years with people who are breaking new ground, turning ideas into reality, launching projects, starting businesses, and designing their life in a way that fits them. Now I wanted to give something back and share some of my insights, thoughts and learnings in my weekly newsletter. I would be delighted if you join my readers :)
