BBA Alumnus
Category Manager, Circle K Latvia

What are your success habits?

Having a good work-life balance and effective task prioritization at work.

What is the best advice you have ever received?

Stop saying YES when you want to say NO. Saying NO doesn’t mean you’re a bad person.

What are you most proud of?

I am most proud of the way I have built my career and personal life so far and I am really looking forward to the future!

What have you always wanted to try, but have never found the time to actually do it?

Reading books! I don’t know if it’s a lack of time or motivation, but that is something I have always wanted to do, but usually haven’t found myself doing.

What is your current challenge or goal?

Maintaining a good work-life balance in the long term, which benefits all. A quickly growing career could damage it;

What are your hobbies or activities to relax?

Fishing! I really enjoy being outdoors and spending a great time on the water.

How do you push through your worst times?

By not panicking and trying to find the root of the problem. Focusing on what I can control, not what I can’t.
