    First of all, I would like to salute your hustling spirit and ability to be able to shift from work to a different work. You being a conventional Engineer has given you the advantage to be dexterous. From your story, I would say that it is truly unimaginable to predict that your choices over the years would bring you from land to sea, from Denmark to Switzerland and Canada, and from engineering to kitchen installation and development of your own products. Am really glad for you that you are now “living the dream” which I think is the most important thing in life. It’s not really about how large one’s income is but how happy one is doing what he loves doing. Am glad you’re doing what you love doing now despite that you are now a Canadian citizen. And most importantly you are now living with a beautiful woman (winks). Thanks so much for your story, it has really been inspiring.

    Thanks Lars for this wonderful story

    At first i thought part 1,2,3 were the best of all when i read them but i can say authoritatively that part 4 is mind blowing compared to other parts

    Living your dream is the best thing that can ever happen to you; Your decision to be an entrepreneur is the best .

    Live your life…. live your dream

    Hi Lars,

    I can’t believe I have become our fan, and following you on every blog post you publish. There are only few successful online entrepreneurs who are willing to divulge everything in their through a story like yours. Or, maybe they’re not fond of story-telling. But I admire your being open and honest with your stories. I am planning to start a similar blog like yours, and tell everything that happened to me. 

    By the way, you said you now have a successful online business… Am I correct? Is this website the business you’re referring to?

    Yours in success,

      Hi Gomer, thank you for your feedback. I believe that if one decides to make a personal blog, there is no way to avoid being personal and being personal is about bringing experiences from your own life. The online business I started in 2004 is not the one I have today. I left that one behind with my ex-wife when I left Denmark.

    Wow! your story caught my interest, especially when you made mention of getting your permit and breaking up with your then woman, that was truly a mixed feelings. Sometimes things fall apart but there is need to be strong and persevere just like you did with the hope that there will be light at the end of the tunnel. I love your story, it’s very inspiring, thumbs up.
