Meet Me Monday: Eero Uustalu
- Introduce yourself shortly.
Hey! I’m Eero, I’m 30 years old and a second year Business Administration and Entrepreneurship student.
- Tell us three facts about yourself.
- I’ve been a member of the Estonian Defence League for 7 years.
- I’m afraid of horses.
- I eat 2 times more than your friend who eats a lot.
- Why did you choose to study at EBS?
Because of the school’s great reputation and also since all the lecturers have practical experience in their fields.
- What do you think is the best part of being a member of the Student Council?
Definitely the members. They’re the ones who find the time besides school, work and family to organise a lot of awesome events for the EBS students. It’s difficult to say ‘I can’t’ or ‘I don’t have time’ while working with them.
- Do you have any hobbies?
Definitely, my biggest passion is cycling. For two years now, I’ve also been going winter swimming even though I can’t handle the cold weather nor winter. In addition to that, I like to run, do photography and be a member of the Defence League.
- Describe your daily schedule from the moment you wake up until you go to sleep.
To me, the most important part of the day is the morning. I remember hearing a saying ‘Don’t make waking up an obligation, make it a part of your day,’ so that’s what I do: I wake up, let my dog out to the garden, take a shower, eat and once everything’s done, I finish my breakfast with a big cup of coffee and read the news. This is followed by a workday filled with several meetings and my evenings are spent studying at EBS. When I get home, before going to bed, I try to make dinner, finish my schoolwork and find some time for my enterprise.
- What’s the craziest thing in your bucket list?
I can’t remember exactly where the idea came from but it is to fly to Italy in the morning, eat pizza there for lunch, drink a bottle of wine and come back in the evening. No sightseeing, no tourist hotspots – just lunch. If necessary, the destination and food can be modified but the idea remains the same.
- What do you do on your day off?
I try to fill those few days off that I get with different activities. Depending on the day, I work out, go hiking, read, watch a movie or even drive to Võru to spend a few hours with my relatives.
- If you could live the life of someone famous which one would you choose?
Richard Branson – everything he does is big and he enjoys all of it. His whole life seems like a great adventure.
- Where do you see yourself in 10 years’ time?
As a very successful entrepreneur whose days are filled with family activities, hobbies, travelling and escaping from the winter.
- Your favorite quote.
“If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.” – Tony Robbins
