Bookkeeper in place

Imagine our surprise when we were looking for a bookkeeper/admin position in Stuart, FL and we found Anders Friberg, living literally 3 minutes away from our office. What a perfect match! Anders is originally from Sweden, so when we Swedes are visiting our office in Florida, we can even chat a bit in Swedish. However, Anders is since long an American citizen and have lived most of his adult life in the US. With his background as a controller and his experience in running his own business for many years, he is just perfect for the job taking care of our books and other administrative duties onsite.

We are so happy to have you in our team Anders!

Meet our new Norgwegian Ambassador – Kjell

Who are you?
I’m Kjell Lövik, a bearded man of 68 years. I’m a father of three- now adult- children, living in Steinkjer beautifully located at the end of a fjord in Norway. As a trained journalist with a Master’s degree in Crisis Communication I worked for 17 years at NOK (Norwegian Television/Radio). As I love communication and the written word, I’m also the author of 18 books throughout the years- both within humour, fact and documentary. Nowadays I really enjoy retired life but can’t help still writing a book every now and then. I’m also passionate about my hobbies, playing a Viking in full regalia in local historic games, and go geocaching all over the world.

What is your story?
When I was 4 years old- back in 1958, I was out on a bicycle ride with my dad.  Sitting behind him at the luggage carrier in a steep downhill I accidently got my foot into the wheel, and broke both of my ancle bones. In time this healed, but in a bad way, so my foot ended up pointing outwards and I kind of got used to that. At the age of 60 I was going on a long hike into the mountains. The trail was challenging and difficult and eventually I slipped and sprained my bad foot. It was rainy and I had no phone coverage, so I simply had to walk back for miles with my bad foot which was now bone-to-bone. Surgery was necessary and bolts were put into the foot, but the bolts broke, and nothing worked. After 4 years, 12 surgeries and lots of complications and pain, amputation was the only way out. After some time in a wheelchair and also getting diagnosed with Parkinson, I’m now up on prosthetics and able to get back to “normal” even if things I do always take a bit longer than before.

What does “Xtend Your life” mean to you?
I’m a curious person who loves exploring new things and to go places I’ve never been before. Best of all is to discover things that I didn’t even know existed. So” Xtend your life” really means the freedom of being able to do just that. I always try and look at things from the bright side, like for example, having a disability always gives you the best spot or other advantages, and if I do something a bit crazy, I can always blame my Parkinson :-).
