I was a Captain in the army and had absolutely no choice but to get REALLY good with time management. I found out that I have a talent for understanding people's needs and routines and matching them with custom-tailored time management systems that work for them.
After finding my passion I quit the army and became a Time Hacker, helping the highly successful entrepreneurs to reach the NEXT level. I'm absolutely in love with my work and try to spread the love around as much as possible - this is why I have a blog, podcast, book and a whole bunch of happy clients.

Once upon a time...
I started as a young and very eager officer. My goal was to make a difference and not just serve my country.
I was working 16-18 hours every day; Constantly sleep deprived, exhausted from running around chasing my own tail I was trying to find time management that would work for me. Nothing ever did - I just kept returning to my old habits.
I was allowed to work at most 4 hours a day, but still had the same job; HOW DO YOU FIT 16 HOURS INTO 4?!
The results were INCREDIBLE! I got promoted 3 times over a period of 2 years (after giving up the hope to be promoted due to my ridiculous working hours), became valuable, respected and praised! I was nominate as the best leader of our department as well as the most efficient officer - all this while working AT MOST 4 hours a day!
My commanders said, "We don't understand how you get done in half a shift what takes others 2 full days!", and they definitely wanted me around for as long as possible.
I chose to leave.
I got the toughest job in the department; Two teams with two different systems and thousands of users. I was so excited I couldn't sleep - lucky for me, I didn't have time for sleep.
...and then I BROKE my back. 3 herniated discs by the age of 25. This is me, showing where my back is broken; This is the only picture I have from that period because I was in so much pain there just weren't any smiles left for the camera.
I couldn't resign and the army wouldn't transfer me to an easier position. The only way for me to reach 30 without a wheelchair was to make the magic happen in just 4 hours a day.
So I started hacking time.
Other officers started coming to me for advice. Bit by bit it became a movement, people finding what works for them the best and absolutely ROCKING IT at work, while having all the time in the world for family, friends and hobbies. Who doesn't want that in their lives, right?:)
I made it in the HARDEST, most strict corporate in the world, and now I live my "Happy Ever After". I help successful entrepreneurs and business owners to take their business and life to the NEXT level.
I'm a time hacking consultant, time strategist, podcaster, blogger, author, and a HUGE believer in magic.
