Who am I?
I am Björn Kammeyer, year of construction 1976, born in Bremen, Germany. At least one, but probably both parents highly gifted.
What do I say about myself?
Most people find me exhausting. Some feel uncomfortable in my presence. In the vernacular, people classify me as a nerd (and I’m proud of it). My problem is that I have an opinion on a great many subjects, can almost always substantiate it, and can’t keep my mouth shut. I like to discuss and philosophize and also accept that my environment does not like my opinion. I am often the Advocatus Diaboli. The one who points at something and says: “That doesn’t fit.”
My wife has been putting up with me for over 12 years now. Maybe my self-perception is wrong there. Or she is just terribly masochistically inclined. With a twinkle in her eye, however, she tells me quite regularly that she hates me.
What do I do?
Generally, I would define myself as a self-taught online marketing professional. But that’s not nearly enough anymore. I write, I research, I distribute, I collect. I do what needs to be done. And I do it with as much speed, passion and willpower as I can muster. I like to call what I do my hobby. I just have fun doing what I do.
What did I learn and study?
My school career had no particular highs or lows. As someone who can’t memorize, I never fit into the German school system. Persistence, willpower and self-control got me through school. Giving up was never an option.
I started my professional career with a large steel mill, which was still German at the time.
My business studies were a waste of time due to lack of depth and distance from the real economy. But as I wrote, I don’t like to give up. That’s why I can call myself a Diplom Betriebswirt (FH) – Something like a MBA.
After that I started to turn to more exciting topics.
What did I do?
Steel, logistics, organic food, medical products, gambling, association work, addiction prevention, marketing, online marketing. And much more.
