Hello everyone!

It’s been a while, I know, but life’s busy as an apprentice 🙂 I’m still glad all of you sticked around for so long and are still here with us!

Now let’s get to the question. How did I prepare myself for the time after my apprenticeship? Well the truth ist, not really. I do have some projects I’d like to work on more, some of them even being semi-viable business opportunities but I’m not quite sure if I want to become self employed already at such a young age. Maybe I’ll stay in an ad-agency for a while to get more experience or I’ll go abroad with my soon-to-be wife. I have lots of opportunities and possibilities, which I’d like to keep open for myself.

The most important thing is finishing my apprenticeship first though. I have a bout a year left if everything goes according to plan and I’d like to use that to learn more.

I do think it’s important to start looking for things to do already though, which is why I scouted for opportunities, did networking and started reading technical literature by myself.

I hope you guys enjoyed my answer! See you soon 🙂
