MY JOURNEY

The Beginnings

Growing up in Budapest, my father’s support ignited my passion for technology. By seven, I was programming and experimenting with a soldering iron. At fourteen, I designed my first website, and by seventeen, I earned my first paycheck from a PHP program. After college, I ventured into freelancing until I discovered my ideal role: a front-end engineer.

Over the next five years, I honed my skills, ascending to the position of a senior front-end team lead. Motivated by my peers, I fulfilled a high-school dream by relocating to Switzerland.

MY JOURNEY

The Mindset Shift

After a rewarding five years at a Swiss firm, I crafted my life’s vision, driven by personal growth and a desire to enhance workplace practices.

Soon after partnering with my coach, Brent, I authored and published my first book within three months. However, the company soon felt I wasn’t the right fit and let me go.

Thankfully, RAV (Swiss Regional Employment Centre) offered support. For a while, I contemplated a management role, only to realize it aligned more with my coach’s aspirations than mine. Undeterred, I opted for self-employment, albeit the challenging route.

In a shift from my tech background, I pursued and became a certified master life coach. This new path led me to assist over 80 clients and collaborate with initiatives like Powercoders, dedicated to teaching refugees in Switzerland to code.

MY JOURNEY

The Downfall

Despite promising beginnings, my enterprise didn’t flourish as anticipated, prompting me to explore other avenues, including freelance tech projects. Amidst these challenges, my spirit waned, plunging me into several somber months. Fortunately, my therapist, Tímea, was a beacon during these testing times.

“There is nothing outside of yourself that can ever enable you to get better, stronger, richer, quicker, or smarter. Everything is within. Everything exists. Seek nothing outside of yourself.”― Miyamoto Musashi, The Book of Five Rings

MY JOURNEY

Reinventing Myself

Though faced with despair, resilience prevailed. After a period of introspection, I aspired to freelance as a Scrum Master. While the journey was tedious, spanning a hundred attempts over four months, I finally got a contract.

MY JOURNEY

The Rising

This new role reinvigorated me. My well-being, both mental and physical, began to ascend. The project’s successful delivery garnered accolades from the management. Today, I wear dual hats – a Healthy Mindset Coach and a freelance Agile Coach.
