He established his first startup FastShopping.dk in 1998. He has as an entrepreneur experienced several startup failures, but also had a few wins.

He has a Linkedin business network of more than 2,800 connections. He believes in the principle of “giving” rather than “gaining”; his priorities in life are simple:
1. HELP people 2. Have FUN & 3. Make a bit of MONEY – in that order!!!
