I'm Therese Eriksson
I’m a Swedish video marketer who is obsessed with RV’s, sushi (thanks to Mr. Russian), paleo lifestyle, bachata dance, animals and nature. I have been blessed to walk on this earth since 1991.
Somewhere during high-school, I started to lose pieces of myself. I knew early that I wanted to leave Sweden, and my first trip ever abroad turned out to be the greatest lesson regarding life. I realized that life is so much more than trading time for money.
My time living in Egypt made an impact on me because during that time in my life I changed forever.
I lived on $0,5 a day, but I had so much fun everyday. Back in Sweden again I found myself more and more miserable working a corporate job as a receptionist at a car-repair shop. I hated it and made a decision to invest in an education (self-development, finance, health etc) and broke free from the standard rat-race.
Today I’m continuing to build my empire including amazing and inspiring people around me, a lot of love, travel with Mr. Russian, and some hip moves from my bachata dancing nights.
Right now, I’m probably out shooting something inspiring to show on social, with the purpose of motivate you to continue on your path towards your dreams (or maybe I'm taking a swing on the dancefloor)
It’s not an easy path to go, going after your dreams, and it will be times when you will be tested.
Hold on my friend!
You are closer than you think to achieving that life you deserve and want so badly. My mission is to guide you to find the courage to show up, get seen as an authority so you can shine and thrive.
I’m the CEO of my life and I’m proud over the business I have created by helping people use video online.
It's in the small
We all love a great nail-biting night time story, don't we? I’m that storyteller who will make you want to watch until the end.
I’m guilty of being a millennial travel freak, and do you know what? - I LOVE it!
I feel like the most adored woman in the entire universe when Pilip calls me his treasure, with his Russian accent. It’s the cutest thing ever.
We can all inspire and influence each other to do great things in this world. I’m choosing to lead and inspire you to take action and to believe in your own power to move forward.
My old boss called me Tuss, now people who are close to me calls me Tuss, Tess or Video Queen.
