Work From The Inside Out

Jun 26, 2019

Erik Bergman is the co-founder of Katina Media, a company that went from zero to 300 plus employees in five years. During this journey, Erik made more money than he will ever need in his life, but at the expense of burning himself out as well as his business partner and his fiance both of whom also worked for the company. Erik now 31, lives in Malta and is a native of Sweden.

At the age of 28 years, Erik was ringing the bell of the stock exchange, making more money than he would ever need in his life, yet he was deeply unhappy and very unhealthy for such a young man. All of that changed, as his business and personal relationships, fell apart. He found himself alone and realized everything had to change. He started the company, where, this time, the focus wasn't extreme growth, but rather wellbeing, transparency, trust, and flexibility for the team and where 100% of the profits are donated to charity.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How Erik started his first business at the age of 20.
  • How he became less afraid of failing after experiencing his own business failures.
  • Erik’s experience of driving himself and everyone around him so aggressively that the company made it to the stock market, but they were burned out to an extreme.
  • How Erik’s priorities shifted dramatically in order to regain his health and restore the relationships that had been deeply damaged.
  • His new company,, and how it is based on trust and flexibility to instill a healthy and productive work environment.
