I am Vlad, founder and owner of the growtolevelup.com website. My passion is to help people achieve their full potential, share my experience and show many opportunities exist wish someone had told me this when I was younger.
My life has changed
I was born in Latvia ( part of the soviet union at the time ), not long after it became an independent country, and in 2004 we joined the Europe union. Travel has become a lot easier than prior it wasn't easy to leave the country, especially for an extended period.
In 2005, I decided to live in a different country; I had no intention to leave Latvia forever. I went to a recruitment agency, and at that time, one of the UK companies was doing recruitment to work in holiday parks across the country. I went for an interview, and luckily I got a job(I don't know how, because my English wasn't almost non-existing, it's a bit better now, but if I am annoying you with incorrect spellings, please forgive me.) A few weeks later, I was on a plane and on my way to Scotland. It was tough for the first few months as, without a language, Scottish people have a different accent, and even people from England struggled to understand them. Long story short - 15 years later, I live in Scotland and love it.
Why do I want to help people?
I am not getting younger, and we cannot stop time, one day I will look at my life and ask myself:
- "What have I achieved in my life?"
- "What is my purpose?"
- "If I had a chance to live my life again, would I change anything?"
And believe me or not - I want to be able to change someone's life before they grow old and ask some questions?
My personal goal is to keep developing myself, learning every day and passing this knowledge to anyone who finds it helpful—being a mentor and seeing people grow it more than anything for me.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below, and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
