’’From struggle to success’’ Three in One

’’ From struggle to success’’ Three in One

Believing in yourself is what enables you to achieve what some decades ago seemed unreachable. For any woman of 21st century it has been a struggle finding the balance between three positions like: a loving mother, an attentive wife and a successful business woman. Roxana Firte has been looking for her silver lining and is more than happy to share it with us. She is a founder of the facility management company, called Real Service ApS.

1. What is your idea/ business about? How the idea was born?

I always felt like I should try my luck as an entrepreneur…I just couldn’t picture myself in a big corporation, with a strict schedule and a boss to question all my decisions. So after my education finished, I wasted a good amount of time unemployed, with no clear directions regarding my career. Until one day, when I said enough it’s enough, it’s time to move forward! Why cleaning? Well, it seemed the best idea at that time… I had the experience from a previous job as a supervisor and team leader, plus I knew some good, hard working people in the branch (including my family), that I knew I could count on.

2.  Tell me about yourself and your team?

I am 27, originally from Romania, new mom to a beautiful baby daughter and hopefully, soon a real business woman.I have a strong personality, tend to smile a lot (or so I’ve been told) and I believe in karma. My team is my secret weapon. It is because of them I am here today and I can’t thank them enough for their dedication and hard work.

3. What are the main struggles that you have experienced?

Running a business while also being a full time mom… I need some superhuman skills to conquer this battle. But I have hope. Moreover, I do business in Denmark, and well… to put it mildly, Danish language it’s not exactly my strongest side. Yet, I survive.

4. How did you solve your problems?

First, I stop and take a break from it all… I am an impulsive person, so I try to control my spontaneous reactions. Somehow, in the morning, things aren’t as grim as they seemed the day before.

5. If you had a chance what would you do in differently?

I would plan more, have more courage, and aim higher.

6.  What was the best advice you got?

“Always be open to new possibilities and never say never.”

7 What will be your advice to the other entrepreneurs?

Everything can be achieved if you believe in it. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes – you will learn from them. Isn’t that the point?

  1. Good post Jose!! Congrats
    “entrepreneurship means to break what is currently considered as off-limits, business is about making profit. Therefore business and entrepreneurship are compatible and in some cases interdependent. But a successful business isn’t always entrepreneurial. Entrepreneurship isn’t a synonym of business. I find that real entrepreneurship, is a very personal and individual matter.”

    • Hi Ram, yes I agree with what you wrote lastly, “entrepreneur ship is personal and individual matter. I hope all is well and wish you the best in your business.

      Hey Ram, thanks for the quote. I think it’s time for all of us to find what’s noise and what’s real.

  2. Wow! With all these definitions, have we created a mountain out of a mole hill? Entrepreneur and startup have been around for at least 3 decades when large governments down sized employees. Banks had to catchup to developing loans to these peoples whom wanted to go it alone. I am afraid that we have a group of people that want to write books with new exciting titles. It is called marketing to make a dollar. “You don’t sell the steak, you sell the sizzle.” Unfortunately some people do follow.In the end, all the different terminologies means the same thing. Entrepreneur wasn’t defined well 30 years ago, but was meant to take a chance, pay your dues, go without for awhile and see if you product/ service makes you a buck. Remember that age old adage “Only the strongest survive.”
