I needed something more so I follow my heart. While working at Ikea, I opened my company specializing in Portuguese products in Finland - Good Stuff Foods. I launched an online store on Shopify and sell B2C and B2B. I used Mailchimp for email marketing, Zettle for payments and run campaigns on Instagram.

The success of the restaurant was almost too good to be true, but the pandemic did a reality check. The restaurant closed and I end up laid of. Even that I had occasionally shifts in another restaurant within the company, it wasn't enough. So it begin the struggle to find a job. In the meantime, I took a Entrepreneurship Program in Shortcut. From idea to pitch, we ran all process in how to open a start up.

Besides that also grown my skills in digital marketing.
