An Introduction from SwedenPublished by Anu Enok and Catharina Jacobsson on January 22, 2013
Looking back, I realize that I’ve been a ”seeker” most of my life. I have always ”wanted to know what to find around the next corner”, which means I have tried a lot of things. I have been mixing jobs and studies. I have studied different stuff like market economy, relaxation pedagogy, different kinds of handicraft. I worked as a teacher, a secretary, a silver smith, and a project manager at an advertising agency (in which I was also part owner). 10 years ago my ”seeking” partially stopped.
I ran into a friend who had been to Stockholm to float. ”What’s that”, I asked. She told me, and I got stuck. I quit the advertising agency and started my own business with two floating tanks. During these 10 years I’ve been one of the founders of the Swedish Floatation Association. Being a member of the board I also helped starting the first education in the world for the floating business. I’m definitely no expert on anything, but with my multicolored background, I can say I know a little about a lot, and after my 10 years with floating I hope to be able to contribute with my experience and the work we do within the Swedish Floatation Association.
I will discuss the different topics with Catharina and we will answer as ”one mouth”, as representatives from the SFA. Sometimes it might happen that I will give a personal opinion as well.
I am an economist and wellness consultant with specialization in mental training. I have not managed to try as many jobs as my colleague Anu. Athletics and health have always been close to my heart. After having been a regular floating customer for many years, I decided to start my own business with the vision to combine floating and mental training, for those who wish, a way to achieve a better "flow" in everyday life or enhanced performance of athletes.
