Who am I?

@saemundurbjornsson

I’ve been an internet marketer since 2009.

I have an offline business where I create websites for clients and upsell them with managing their online advertising, but my main business is affiliate marketing.

Procrastination being one of my hobbies, getting things done is not one of my strong-sides 🙂

Seriously, I know I am not any worse than the next guy or gal when it comes to putting things off. But it certainly feels like I am one of the top players of the game, as my procrastination can set me back for weeks sometimes.

Now, no bio can in no way, shape or form be a short one – but in order to avoid boring you, and to keep you reading ’til the end, where you’ll be able to see if my skillsets and values coincide with yours – I will limit this read to just 5 minutes 🙂


My earliest memory is so early that I won’t even tell you about it as you probably wouldn’t believe me if I told you. So I’ll tell you about my 5th clear memory, my 3rd birthday.

As a kid I was really into making people laugh, this I have later learned was a way for me to measure the level of other peoples acceptance of me.

I’d do something and if people laughed it meant I was accepted. In that moment, at least. If they didn’t laugh, I would not know if I was in the clear or not. And if they got angry, well, then I knew I did something that made the person in question not accept me.

Tough times, always keeping up with appearances – and at 3 years old! 🙂

Side note: I kept this “measurement tool” in my toolbox until I was 18 years old, and thinking back it is almost as it kept me alive growing up…

On my 3rd birthday I was at my Nannys house, just a block and a half from where my parents and I lived. My nanny was always accepting of me, so I did what I could to keep it that way.

My nanny lived in a fairly large apartment in 101 Reýkjavík, the city centre, just next to Hlemmur and the Police Station for those of you who’ve been to my home city.

The apartment had a wall dividing the apartment into two halves. On one side of the living room there was a wide plastic-like door shaped like an accordion that led into the kitchen, and on the other side there was another wooden door leading out into the hallway and subsequently to the bedrooms, restroom and bathroom.

And from the hallway, there was also a door into the kitchen. So you could move in circles in the apartment, and to me this was hilarious and acted as a tool for my funnyness (is that a word?) on this particular day.

My memory, although detailed enough, is simply this: Me grabbing a hold of the toiletpaper from the restroom and running in circles while laughing, between the kitchen and living room a few times, before my nanny caught me in the act and said “What in the….” and I frose on the spot and tried to analyze her face as to see what the reaction meant in regards to acceptance.

There was just a second or two of utter silence, before she burst into the warmest and most cander laughter. Relieved of her reaction I too laughed loudly and pissed my diaper that very second.

A complex, but happy memory that I will cherish for as long as I live.

Today, I am very fortunate, I have a wife to die for, I know who I am and what my strengths and weaknesses are. 

My top skills are:
Independence
Memory
Understanding
Emotional Intelligence
Communication
Respect 
Wisdom
Self Awareness
Hard Work
Leadership

My core values are:
Health
Physical & Psychological Freedom
Communication
Knowledge
Loyalty
Trust
Purpose
Peace
Fairness
Stability

There is a tremendous amount left out, but in the shortest way possible, this is my me.

Please let me know if this resonates with you in any way, I would love to hear from you 🙂
