Sven is a doctoral student in semiotics and cultural theory at the UT. Sven's doctoral thesis deals with brand research.
Sven has had the experience of founding two companies and now also liquidating them.
The first time Sven burned out was when he started studying at the university and set himself the goal of getting only A's. The second time, Sven burned out at the beginning of his doctoral studies when he lost balance in his private and professional life and between them. Both burnouts have shown that in the long term, what can help is a comprehensive to-do list and a schedule in Google Calendar, conscious breathing, daily walks, for example, in the botanical garden, and hobby drawing.
