What drives you in your work?
For Nuuk based entrepreneur Martin Nordlund, innovation and entrepreneurship is about getting out of your comfort zone, because that is where you learn the most, and learning is the most important part of life. Don’t be afraid of the pain, be curious and transform your insecurities into your motivation and grow with the task.
So from Martin Nordlund: Just do it!
