Hello, I am Arlind. Perhaps my name is unfamiliar to you since it is of Albanian origin, meaning "gold is born." And just like my name, my birth city, Mitrovica, is known as the "Golden City" of Kosovo due to its ancient mines.
My background is quite diverse. I migrated to Germany at a very young age of 1 due to the war in Kosovo and lived there until I was 7 years old. This early exposure allowed me to become fluent in the German language. Afterwards, I returned to Kosovo and pursued my education in Economics. Following my studies, I worked for several different BPO companies in Pristina, gaining valuable experience in various aspects of business operations and customer service.
I have worked with the EverLeaf team long before when the company Agrando existed. After the team reassembled to form EverLeaf, I received an offer from Besnik, our CFO, and without hesitation, I accepted this offer because it has been a pleasure to work in an environment like Agrando, and the same continues here at EverLeaf as well.
As an Sales Development Representative (SDR), my daily work involves finding new clients for one of our partners and closing deals. I work with our marketing team to develop and execute sales strategies. I’m passionate about helping businesses grow, and I take pride in my work.
My favorite core value of the company is 'We win' because it aligns perfectly with my personality as I always strive for victory.
This value of the company motivates all of us to become the best at what we do. It's a pleasure to see the whole team embracing this core value and continuously pushing each other forward.
One of my favorite EverLeaf moments was when we had our first "small office" with just three employees - Flaka, Evelina, and myself. Before our official office was ready, we found ourselves in a cozy space, full of excitement and anticipation for the future of EverLeaf. It was a special experience as we shared high hopes and dreams for the growth and success of our company.
My favorite spot in the office is undoubtedly the beautiful terrace where we take our breaks. The reason is simple: it offers a breathtaking view of the vibrant city of Prishtina. It's a refreshing escape from the daily hustle and bustle, allowing us to unwind and recharge amidst the scenic surroundings. Whether it's enjoying a cup of coffee or engaging in a friendly chat with colleagues, the terrace provides an enjoyable environment that makes our breaks truly relaxing.
Outside of work, I love to spend time with my family and friends. I like to travel, and during those long journeys I enjoy reading books. My favorite book is "Atomic Habits" by James Clear. I can't recommend it enough, it's not just a book; it's a powerful tool that helps you achieve your goals and ambitions. This book is full of valuable insights that have made a significant impact on my life, and I believe it can do the same for anyone else too.
My advice for other professionals is to "be yourself". Embrace your authentic self and let your true personality shine through. When you are genuine, people are naturally drawn to you, and it fosters meaningful connections in both personal and professional settings.
Remember to believe in your abilities, stay true to your values, and continuously seek opportunities for growth and improvement. Stay open to learning from others and be adaptable to change.
We are excited to have Arlind as part of our team. He is a talented sales professional with a passion for helping businesses grow. We are confident that he will continue to be a valuable asset to Everleaf for many years to come.
