Veronika Palovska: On freedom and responsibility when we teach online

December 22, 2021

In the last episode of this season of OnlineBound, I talk to Veronika Palovska, a brand strategist and my business partner in crime. We dive into the topic of freedom, how growing up in post-communist countries shaped our perception of it, and some of the ways it shows when running our businesses.

This conversation is about the importance of having your own definition of freedom and the courage it takes to pursue real freedom, not just the idea of it. We hope you’ll join us.

Listen to the episode

Discussed in this episode:

  • Our experience of growing up in post-communist countries and what it taught us about freedom
  • Why gaining freedom through online (teaching) business a great selling point — and what the ads don’t say
  • Why freedom isn’t easy
  • Why you need your own definition of freedom
  • The mindsets we need to leave behind if we want to be truly free
