What are Your Hobbies When You’re Not Battling Our Users’ Website Woes?

When I’m not diving into the exciting world of hosting, you’ll find me exploring many hobbies that keep life interesting! Lately, I’ve been devouring books on self-improvement and finance, always striving to expand my knowledge and grow personally. But hey, it’s not all about hitting the books! My girlfriend and I are avid travellers, always looking for our next adventure. Our recent trip to Rome was breathtaking! The architecture alone left us in awe. And speaking of staying in shape, hitting the gym has become a cornerstone of my daily routine. I firmly believe that a healthy body equals a healthy mind; I’m all about maintaining that balance.

But wait here’s where things get interesting – leather crafting! Yup, you heard that right. There’s something incredibly satisfying about turning a simple piece of leather into a functional work of art. From wallets to passport holders, I’m honing my skills and even starting to brand my creations under Zahariev Leather. Who knows where this hobby will take me next?

What’s Your Most Significant Professional or Personal Goal for This Year?

Even though it might be fantastic, world domination sounds too occupying and wouldn’t leave me time to fight the hosting wars. It sounds nerdy, but I am big on planning and setting goals. A few of them for this year are:

  • I will adopt better health habits;
  • Read at least 25 books for the calendar year;
  • Begin a master’s degree;
  • Grow my Leather Craft brand to a particular state.

On the professional front, I’m all about seizing opportunities and embracing growth. Whether tackling new tasks or honing my skills, I’m committed to continuous improvement and making each month count.

Confess! Have You Ever Made a Hilarious Typo With a Customer?

No, I’m perfect; I don’t make mistakes!!! Haha, of course, I am joking. We are only humans; we make mistakes, and I have made a few here and there. However, I cannot recall one so hilarious that it is worth remembering.

Do You Have a Hidden Talent or Interest That you’d Like to Share, Chavdar?

Excellent question. There are a few things that even my colleagues might not know about me. I want to begin with the fact that I have been practicing Football for around 13 years and graduated from a Sports school in 2019. and one of the greatest moments during that part of my life was in 2018; just a few weeks before the World Cup in Russia, me and my team went on a small tournament over there. We came up with 3rd place alongside teams like Sevilla, Dortmund, Rostov on Don, and others. It’s worth mentioning that we beat an Armenian team for 3rd place.

Another exciting thing about me is my bachelor’s degree. In November, I finished my degree in Technology of Wine and Brewing. I have learned to make wine, beer, high-alcohol beverages, juices, and special drinks. This is an exciting area that might be worth exploring even more in the future.

What’s Your Favorite Part About Working Remotely?

Ah, the freedom of remote work—it’s truly a game-changer! Since diving into the remote work scene in 2020, I’ve become utterly obsessed with its flexibility. Gone are the days of dreading rush hour traffic or being confined to a stuffy office space. What I cherish most is the boundless freedom to work from anywhere. Whether I’m cozied up at home or setting up shop in a quaint café, the world becomes my office. And let’s not forget the joy of hopping on a train and spending quality time with my girlfriend, who lives in another city. We’ve cherished precious moments together thanks to remote work, creating memories that wouldn’t be possible otherwise. Remote work isn’t just about convenience – it’s about reclaiming control over my time and embracing a lifestyle that aligns with my values. And for that, I’m genuinely grateful.

What Advice Would You Give Someone Considering a Career in Our Field?

If you’re considering diving into the vast ocean of tech, my advice is simple: seize the moment and dive right in!

You will not regret learning new tech skills and constantly improving yourself; it will pay off! So, don’t hesitate to embark on this exhilarating journey.
