Hi, I'm Micael, the author of this blog. I am a 33 year old ex-developer and ex-entrepreneur (I co-founded Fyndiq, one of Sweden's largest e-commerce websites, where I was CTO for the first six years). Nowadays I spend my days writing books about happiness and how to build a better life. And as I do a lot of research on these topics, I also share insights in my newsletter and on this blog.

Right now (April 2017) I'm preparing the launch of my first non-fiction book on Happiness and how it can be achieved by cultivating certain habits. I am also starting my next book, which will be about mustering courage to fulfill your dreams in life.

Other than that, I spend a lot of time on my passion for photography. I share my photos at 500px and instagram.

You can also find me on Twitter, Linkedin and Facebook.

If you want to contact me the best way is to send an e-mail to micael at micaelwidell dot com.
