What is success? And how does it feel?

 In the end of December JS from Successful Styles  visited  Anna and Oxana founders of Life as an Investment and talked to them about success and their way to where they are now. Anna and Oxana are also founders of Kamishi AB, Hoam.ly and Stockholm International Swimming Club….. Originally published at Successful Styles. Every time I meet Anna it is like a new page opens up. It is unimaginable how much she knows, understands and is curious about. I don’t even remember the first time I met this girl, but what I do remember pretty good about her is her fiery mental strength. She is always hungry for learning more and does it in the best way she can. It seems to me it never matters whether it’s hard or not, she’ll do it anyways. When I mentioned that I want to write about her success, she instantly suggested inviting her closest friend and a business partner Oxana Sachenkova.

Is a 24-hour day enough?

After the our with Oxana Hoam.ly project went into STING TEST DRIVE , I began asking myself “ Is a 24-hour day enough? ” At first I was positive that it will be. Preparing the seminars, reading, collecting information and writing about the process…AND having time for my private life—yeah right!

And the first issue I wanted to discuss is time management.  WHY? Why do we have only 24 hours? I have no idea! But I do know that even if we had 48 hours in one day it still wouldn’t be enough! Here are some tips on how to organize the day and save your precious time, that I figured out during STING TEST DRIVE program: Sleep I don’t know about you but if I don’t get 7.5 to eight hours of sleep every day, I’m a total zombie! My productivity decreases and my chances of getting sick increase. And If I get sick, say goodbye …

10 Best Budget-Friendly Christmas Presents for Swimmers

Swimming is like religion for those who spend more time in water than out of water. If you’re lucky to be a swimmer, and have friends who are swimmers, here are 10 solid tips for the perfect Christmas gift. 1. Medal Holder Competitive swimmers usually don’t know how to display their medals, so they usually end up siting in a box, placed on a shelf somewhere in a closet. This is a great way to display medals….and encourage more training to win more medals!    2. Swimming Towel These towels are not easy to find! They are special microfiber towels that absorb more than regular bath towels….and are extremely compact. A must have for every swimmer! 3. Remarkable Swimming Gear TYR created the special collection The Finals Funnies. This collection is true to its name—pure fun! A combination of great quality and bright colors….especially useful during those dull fall days in the pool. I bought myself that one. There are models for guys too. 4. Book Swimmers do read, but we prefer to read about …
