The mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work unless it’s open.
Yova Petrova, Team Manager
During my study at the university, I was selling W&T programs for 5 years. This job opened the door for me – not only for my personal growth, but it was a very good start for my career development. I’ve learned the main lesson there – find the right approach to work with people and you will get the results super easily. I had been living in the USA for a while and when I came back here, I started working for one of the biggest direct selling companies, leading 3 markets. After 10 years and all the knowledge, experience and awards, naturally, it was time for a change, to clear up my mind and to move to a totally different area. Pontica intrigued me with the fact that they opened a new position for an e-wallet project, where the leader should work with an international team. This was enough for me to accept the role.
‘A smile is happiness you’ll find right under your nose’ – a smile opens a million doors. I am happy to be on the team; I always try to bring a positive mood and to create a nice atmosphere. My role was a big challenge since day 1 and still is, but this is what motivates me most. To be a leader means to be a role model, this is what I am trying to be for the team. I put a lot of effort and just a few months later I can see the results. It’s never been a waste of time and energy, but a constructive growth for both sides. There is no routine in this job – every day is totally different, which keeps you in good shape. My colleagues are amazing – such a mixture of different nations, cultures, and languages is a top experience and the main driver to grow together in the same family – Pontica 🙂
Yova after work
I really don’t have any free time after work, because I have a priceless challenge – the role of a mom in the school of life 🙂 It’s not easy, but inspires me to move the mountains and to see the happiness on my daughter’s face at the end of the day. I love traveling in and out of Bulgaria, visiting different places, meeting different people, exploring different cultures and habits, this is my passion since I was a child. As I am a proud Bulgarian, I am keen on dancing folk dances (simply can’t miss the chance to keep the traditions of this treasure and to share them with the new generation).
