Communicator. Ponderer. Solution seeker. Empath. Creator. Working smarter!
I am proactive, I'm eager to improve everything in and around me and when I see something needs to be done, I do it (unless it falls in the not-urgent-and-not-important category. But if I have time, I even do those...).
I am a firm believer in working smarter. (!!!) Think 4-hour work week (book).
Meaning I often only see room for problem solving and solutions (which is not everyone's cup of tea) and when I lack the knowledge I make up for it with enthusiasm and diligence.
I'd rather spend 3 hours or a day learning how to code and coding now than being frustrated by menial tasks on a monthly basis. (And I did this.)
P.S. LinkedIn should have a book section. If you have a good book suggestion, please message me 🙂
If I can easily learn something about myself or others from it, I'll probably like it.
I recommend: Citadelle (also known as The Wisdom of The Sands by Antoine de-Saint Exupéry), Predictably Irrational (by Dan Ariely), What Do You Care What Other People Think? (by Richard Feynman), Games People Play (by Eric Berne), Limitless (Jim Kwik), When - the scientific secrets of perfect timing (Daniel H. Pink) and 4-Hour Work Week (by Timothy Ferriss).

I’m the founder of a next-gen Web3 creative studio: Social Humans
We work with a unique type of clients: Gen Z brands that are as nimble and ambitious as we are, and determined to scale their brand using virtual influencers.
But first and foremost: we’re creating viral content, and high ROI creatives for performance marketing, focusing on one thing and doing it well.
As we entered the space, we created our own fashion brand, and on the launch day generated $100k, in the matter of hours.
Before that I’ve had a performance marketing agency & here’s our track-record In a nutshell:
Total revenue generated - $7.9m
Total ad spend - $1.8m
I'm also a big fan of books and all the Gen Z shenanigans.
Founder & Project Manager at Treecelet. Creating the world a better place through entrepreneurship by planting trees.
I am Miha Hrovat, a 28-year-old Slovenian, a co-founder and manager of a tree-planting project called Treecelet. I believe entrepreneurs are superheroes of today's world. My mission is to maximize the positive impact on nature, animals, and people through entrepreneurship.
I have two great passions: firstly, making the world a better place, and secondly, entrepreneurship. Since I was a kid, I have been looking for ways to impact our planet positively. In addition, I was intrigued by morals and ethics so much that I studied philosophy and successfully finished my degree in 2017.
That was the time when I started taking serious steps into entrepreneurship. That step was inevitable since my family has lived with entrepreneurship for the last 60 years. Treecelet connected everything I am:
• A compassionate individual who wants to help.
• A competitive sportsman.
• An ambitious young man with an entrepreneurial mind.
I help businesses build problem solving skills and develop sustainable business models.
I'm a dedicated servant to the following business principles:
1. FAIRNESS: To me, business isn’t about egocentric financial goals, but about making the world a better place. That means focusing on value and considering all impacts on society, economy and environment.
2. UNIQUENESS: I believe true success lies in bringing your authentic unique self to the table and not just following other people's norms and rules.
3. NO BULLS**T: Many companies have mastered the art of bending reality in order present themselves in the best light possible. Not my cup of tea. I believe in honesty and transparency.
Those principles spell FUN. Which is a nice spice to add given the fact that we spend about half of our time awake doing business.
