Let me take care of what you think is boring!
My curriculum vitae
My name is Anna Gustafsson, and I currently live in the northern part of Jämtland in a village with 25 inhabitants where the road starts.
Having living a very international life around Europe (I grew up in Germany and have worked and lived in Switzerland and Italy) and a few years in Stockholm, I decided to go on an adventure, where the physical goal was clear (hiking 1350km from Grövelsjön to Treriksröset), but the real goal was open.
After 67 days alone in the Swedish mountains, sleeping in my tent, drinking fresh water from the streams, watching the endless landscapes and waking up with the sun I realized that I want a lifestyle which is closer to nature and where the basics in life are what take up the major part of your time.
Just one month after finishing my hike I quit my job as an Engineer in Stockholm and became my own boss. Now I have lived here for a bit over a year and I have worked at the hotel in the village, as a tourist guide, constructing hiking paths, as a photographer and since January I am also the administrator of a small Stockholm based company.
Being an administrator, aka ‘all-rounder’, fits my personality and experience!
- my German sense of structure kicks in to get email accounts and documents in shape
- my social side loves the communication with customers and through social media
- my intellectual side gets to learn a lot of new things about fields I have not been involved in previously
- the engineer in me focuses on problem solving on all levels
- I have worked as a consultant for 6 years of my engineering career
To live a sustainable life where nature and seasons is predominant and the city is hours away calls for a different way of working. I am aiming to have a few long term cooperation ‘digital nomad style’, and the flexibility to work outdoors and physically when I get the chance to!
