Hi. My name is Olle, and I’m a writer (among other things).  Welcome to my blog. This page gives you a crash course on me and answers the most common questions.

I love compelling stories, travelling the world, and helping others grow. I believe in effort, learning, and having fun.

I started this blog in 2012 with some burning questions:

  • How can we live up to our potential and lead a fulfilling life?
  • What makes some people more successful than others?
  • How can we pursue our dreams?

What I found in my search was a community of like-minded individuals sharing many of the same struggles.

Here is where we rage war against our fears, where we come together to find the courage to listen to ourselves and act on that tiny voice inside our heads.

If you have a passion for stretching yourself and changing the world, then this blog is for you.

Let me help you along the way

Who Is Olle Lindholm?

Originally from Stockholm, I moved to Barcelona after graduating from high school and spent four months living together with a host family.

In Spain, I travelled around and met people from all over the world. I learned that life is what you make of it, and that you must take responsibility for yourself. No one is going to hand things to you. You choose where to go next.

So, I decided to pack my bags again. This time I was fulfilling a childhood dream: I was moving to Australia. I graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2012 with a major in Creative Writing and Communication. I also finished a Diploma in Spanish, where I fell in love with Don Quijote and Pedro Almodóvar’s films.

After graduation, I worked for an app company that made educational children’s games. I managed a team of translators and voice-over artists and we had a lot of fun.

I’ve also worked as the editor for Flippa. Here I wrote articles and managed a team of writers. I’ve written and guest-blogged for numerous magazines, publications, and blogs since. (To find out more about my writing, check out my portfolio).

I’m currently studying my Master’s Degree in Strategic Communication at Lund University.
