As I am sure you all know by now, I am Philip or also known as “Christina’s lion”. If you are wondering why I get compared to a lion, well here’s your answer.
One of the main reasons for being called a lion is that I am passionate about everything I choose to do and I am extremely ambitious. I either do it the right way and focus all my energy towards it or I don’t do it at all.
One example for this is my work life. Even though I am only 24 years old, I am already partowner of SunnyBAG, an innovativ and environmentally-friendly start-up that is specialized in producing bags, backpacks and mobile solarsolutions with pv modules attached to them. That way you can charge your technical devices on the go. If you are from german-speaking countries you may know the VOX TV-show “Die Höhle der Löwen” in which I also had a successful appearance with SunnyBAG. Today, we are European market leader in the mobile energy supply.
How to get this successful so early in life? Well you have to work nonstop on improving. I started my journey when I was 18 years old. That was the time I had to do civil service (this is obligatory in Austria). I could just have waited for the 8 months to pass, but where’s the fun in that? Thats why I decided to run a social project called KickitBosco where I built a soccer field for kids. The kids are not only able to play there for free everyday, but also on high quality fields and with trainers. Several honours (Graz Citizen of the year, Austrian civil servant of the year, Austrian integration project of the year) later we still run the organization “Kick it Bosco Sport- und Bildungsverein”.
From this on I got invited to numerous amazing events, meetings and get-togethers with incredibly interesting people. This is how I got somewhat well-known in Graz and Austria in general. As I get invited to amazing events and I try to go to as many as possible, it is not unusual for me to be in a different big city each day (or even multiple cities per day). I also like to go on trips to countries in my free time with either Christina or my brother. Therefore, I am quite busy and lead what my girlfriend calls the “jetset-lifestyle”.
As you’ve already read in Christina’s “About me” blogpost, my following blogposts are mainly going to be in German about combining business and relationship , travel & future trends. If you want to know more about what I am up to, check out my Facebook page.
