Semir Sakic

"Even through difficult times you always have to stick to your dream. If you want to be successful, you have to work hard and fight for it. Never give up!"

Semir Sakic’s story in Germany began, like so many others, starting with flight from a war. At the age of six, he fled with his family in an old VW bus from his home village Prijepolje in Serbia across many borders to Germany. He has been living in Offenbach ever since and has been successfully running the company ‘Greatmind Solution’ for over a year, helping other entrepreneurs improve their social media presence.

Semir, like all other children in Germany, went to school, studied math formulas, English vocabulary and German grammar, graduated from high school and later from university – but what he had been thinking about since school was the question: What comes next? What do I do with all the accumulated knowledge? It soon became clear to him that he did not want to work for the dreams of others, but realizing himself.

“There was the strong feeling in me that after graduation I could not follow the traditional path into an employee relationship. But what exactly I wanted to do was also unclear to me. Therefore I knew: I have to look for other alternatives. “

So it happened that Semir made a list of things that he was especially good at and which gave him pleasure. One of the key points was his love for IT and designing websites. Finally, he put this into action and initially started building websites for companies.

“I built up my current business step by step,” says the young founder. “Learning by doing was particularly important here. Bit by bit, I became recognized as a website designer and finally discovered the social media area for me.”

Today, Semir is an expert for Instagram and has a broad customer base from a wide range of industries and sectors.
His greatest role model during the entire founding process has always been his father. He came as a refugee to Germany and has worked hard to enable him and his family a better life here. The work ethic and the strong will of his father have shaped Semir’s mindset and helped him a lot during the founding process:

“Even through difficult times you always have to stick to your dream. If you want to be successful, you have to work hard and fight for it. Never give up!”

Semir likes to share these sentences with young people who would like to start their own company, because they were the key to his successful business.

The 30-year-old does not regret his step into independence. Through his own business he has found the personal freedom he was looking for. Especially the self-esteem which he obtains from satisfied customers is something he does not want to miss anymore.
