Thanks for visiting, my name is Alex Pavlenko and here is a little more about me.
I have been pursuing entrepreneurship since high school. I have enjoyed the journey this far and would like to start sharing my experience with others through this blog. I have received an undergraduate degree in Business Administration from WSU Vancouver. After graduating I started a few businesses such as Blinds Northwest (aka MyBlinds.Biz), Presso Coffee Bar, Columbia Collective (Coworking space sold to a local commercial developer. You can read about that here.), started and liquidated a screen printing business called BluePDX and host a local event called VanCoffee – local tech and startup networking meetup. With this blog I hope to inspire you and help you to build a better life, career, and business.
I don’t have all the secrets to living a successful life. But I’m happy to share the things that I’ve learned until now from working with high-performing people, my mentors, reading books, and my own personal experience.
I started my first business in 2005. And I must say, it’s not easy to stay productive, motivated, and grow your business. But it’s worth it because I believe that productivity produces happiness and income.
Every week, I’ll share a new article/idea/tool with you that you can use to get one step closer to your goal of growing your business or career.
