What's your business, and who are your customers?
Tell us about yourself
I'm a Software Developer based in West Friesland, the Netherlands. My interests also lie in designing, printing, and publishing 3d models. I also like to immerse myself in developing websites and making apps and games. In my spare time, I'm studying a lot to increase my knowledge in the Tech field. I live a healthy lifestyle through healthy eating and daily exercise. This gives me the positive energy to follow this study.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I've been designated a top designer in the Cults community. That means I'm in the top 100 best designers in the 3DCults community. I'm currently in position 62. I'm also very proud of the fact that I have developed my own website. It is a website that is clearly visible on both a large screen and a small screen.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Because I'm very passionate about my work, I sometimes find myself working too long hours. I have to make sure that I plan enough free time for myself.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
If you want to start your own business, you can make several choices. For example, you can choose to make your hobby your job. You can also grow a side hustle that you carry out alongside your work into the main source of income. In addition to your current job, you spend some time building up your side hustle.
