Men who are about to interview me have a tendency to say something “manly” to me on stage. I don’t know why this is. Either they’re not aware, or they’re trying to be funny. I’ll give you a perfect example from yesterday when I was being presented at Malmö Näringslivsgala. The first question I receive is: “I wasn’t your biggest fan when you were younger, can we just address that before we start the interview?”. I replied, like many times before: “Well, that might be the case, but that is actually your problem and not mine”.
Then we continued the interview and had a great talk.
Thank you for being an amazing audience! Your support, applauds, and laughter is something that I will hold onto for the rest of the week. It warms my heart.
Afterwards a flight to Paris was waiting for me! I love that city so much. There’s something about the light, and how around every corner there is something beautiful.
Crillons staff picked me up
I have several favorite hotels in Paris: Hotel De Crillon, George V and Hotel Particulier Montmartre. I know Hotel Costes is popular, but I think it’s crowded, dark and smoky.
I love to visit beautiful places like this. To step into a lovely, cinematic and inspiring environment. It’s like my ordinary, everyday life in a grey Stockholm becomes confused. This is how I wanna live all the time.
Pingis and I had dinner with LVHM, which was very nice. There’s not much more I can tell you right now. But it’s amazing to get a foot in the door at the world’s most prestigious and well run investment company. Pinch me.
I went downstairs for breakfast at 7:30 am. Fresh berries and an almond croissant. I drank the entire pot of coffee. I’m still tired though, or perhaps exhausted after last night’s dinner? Anyway. I just have to recharge. Now I just landed in Sweden and I have long workshop for our new budget brand LCC ahead of me. I work late tonight, another speaking job. The days are long, but I like to keep up the tempo. I’m gonna treat myself to an extra long weekend off. I have one rule: I can press the gas- if there is time for recovery. Otherwise the equation won’t equal. I need to keep this up for many years to come.
