As a teenager, I decided to go my own way and chose a wonderful secondary school in the form of the Secondary School of Economics 😉 There were two reasons – because it was the most ambitious school in the area and I decided to show that I can do something more than beautifully draw. After 4 years, I realized that it is not my cup of tea, I don’t like French and … I will never teach anyone 😉 The latter did not work out for me, because I have been teaching people like you for 17 years.
For the next few years, I am finishing architecture, going to Greece, getting to know a foreign country, language and people. I collect professional and life experience. I come back to Poland; I open a salon with interior design and … I decide to make my dream come true, and I become an editor in one of the interior design newspaper, writing on the side of several other newspapers and teaching how to design in ArchiCAD. In the meantime, I am starting (horror – see 1995) economic studies in running an e-business. Then I already knew that the Internet is the future 🙂
I am starting to train students and architects to use ArchiCAD at universities of technology in Poland. I train in Warsaw in the morning, in Poznań in the evening, and Gdańsk the next day, and it stays like that for the next several years. I travel around the world, collecting new certificates and exploring the secrets of ArchiCAD and creating training and running a business. Unfortunately, we are still crawling in this respect in Poland.
However, this year was special for me in one more way – my daughter is born, the best gift I could get in my life 🙂
I spend the following years designing several restaurants, shops, hotels and apartments. Building a little training empire called NORMA, switching to online training to travel more for fun and less work. After all, with online training, I can teach from anywhere in the world—besides, several movings, more certificates, cooperation, and training for others and myself. I’m starting to train people all over the world. I get to know new places, visit new countries and train people in New Zealand, Argentina, Thailand or Hawaii. I do what I love, and they still pay me for it 😉
Just live and not die 🙂
Pandemic and rebranding. The pandemic only proved to me that a few years earlier focusing on online training was a shot at 10. It also motivated me to take a step forward and take the company to a new level. NORMA is officially changed to Ready Design. Turning 40 this year also gives a positive energy boost. I am starting to translate the dry knowledge from ArchiCAD, but I teach everything that I have tested on my own skin and in my company. I show you how to enter the market, stand out from the competition, and how to handle the whole business yourself. I scale my business while conducting the same training in English. I also open a second business, which also revolves around training and running a business.
We will see, but the most important thing is to do what you love and have a goal. My goal is – further development of Ready Design and Ready Course … new cooperation and professional development as well as the realization of new dreams … if not now, then when? 🙂
