What are the strongest motives in your life and work?
Not to rust in mind and body.
Never get bored!
Boredom is a bad thing lad!


What is the motto that directs your life?
Work and joy. Ancient Greek saying!
My father was telling me this when I was young and still does.


What is the biggest satisfaction in the business you had?
The same satisfaction I had on the first day in 1991 when I saw growing my first mushroom, the same satisfaction I still feel every time I see a new cycle of mushrooms grow successfully.


Which is the mistake you learned most from?
The credit!


Have you ever thought of giving up?
Why;
Why did you change your mind and kept on?
To the disappointment of some “friends” NO.


What do failure and success mean to you?
Success is to go home after work and be happy about what you accomplished all day. I would say failure is the exhaustion of mental reserves.


What other interests do you have apart from your job?
Experiential psychosomatic exercises with my three children and my wife (screaming to study, going to gyms, who will take the dishes out of the washing machine, etc.)!
Ah! and the classic: facebook, twitter, Instagram, Viber, messenger and the head bent down! Lads wake up, do sports activities, swear, scream, bleed, sweat, dirty your hands, get hurt, hold your head (up) high.


Say some words that will inspire young entrepreneurs.
Dear friends, decide the scope you like, work hard like laborers on this scope and then do your own business.


Make a wish
Clean environment, no more pollution of the planet!
