You are different. You don’t fit into the system.
Some people call you crazy or unrealistic.
"Everyday people" don’t get you.
You know where you want to go. You are on a mission to make positive change.
You are an entrepreneur and leader at heart.
You are sick and tired of the status quo and bored with comfortable.
You are building something that is bigger than yourself.
You are building something remarkable, something that matters to the world and to you.
You are in the business of making a difference.
I’ve always been a creator and connector. I started my first businesses at the age of 16 and went on to sell insurances and real estate, build a Search Engine Optimization company, a successful online shop, my current business at jordico and The ChangeMakers' Hub.
“You really made it. You just turned 25 and have achieved more in your career than anybody else I know at your age.”
This is what some of my friends told me when we talked about career and business. I was 25 years old, managing two teams with millions of Swiss Francs in sales responsibility and earning significant money with lots of benefits like a company car and all expenses paid.
The only problem was that I did not really feel like I made it. Sure, I was living a good life, had lots of flexibility, status and money but I did not FEEL successful.
I only really felt alive at the weekends and on holidays. I always thought there must be something more out there but I hardly ever bothered to do anything about it since I had such a comfortable life.
My Golden Ticket
In December 2012, I received my golden ticket and got fired from my corporate job. I decided that this was my wake-up call I could not ignore and officially launched jordico in early 2013.
There were certainly a few challenges that came along with this decision. When I started my business, the only things I really owned were thousands of Swiss Francs in credit card debt, an expensive apartment to pay and an empty bank account.
The first six months felt like a mix between ultimate excitement and fighting my way through hell. I had an emergency call almost every week with my best friend who continuously told me that things will be ok while I told her everything will be going to fail.
Since early 2013, countless things have happened.
I had the privilege to work with more than 200 extraordinary and inspiring leaders and entrepreneurs from more than 26 different nationalities.
Jordico has developed into a central hub for ChangeMakers - leaders and entrepreneurs who build ventures that create disruptive, positive change. Additionally, I have the honor to be on the Steering Committee at the Trestle Foundation with the mission to empower 20’000 women entrepreneurs until 2020.
To top it off, in 2015, I had the chance to fulfill a dream I had for many years. I was given the opportunity to speak at TEDx in Lugano to share my vision for a future we can be proud of.
I’m eternally grateful for what I have been able to create, the people I have been able to impact and the connections I have been able to forge.
I believe every person has a unique superpower, a talent, skill, perspective, something that they are great at and love doing.
My unique superpower is, and always has been, connecting people and helping people connect. I’m very grateful that I get to use this gift every day to help ChangeMakers create the change they want to see in the world.
"Before I started working with Daniel, I would reach out to potential clients with no strategic approach. I would just reach out and ask people to connect with the nebulous reason that we "may be of benefit to each other".
Working with Daniel, I learned a methodology to appeal to potential contacts at a deep fundamental level. It has greatly increased my contact rates and also led to more productive relationships post initial contact.
I enthusiastically recommend Daniel's services to anyone wanting to make high-level connections."
