Author biography

Jacek Salek was born in 1963, in Gdansk, Poland. He grew up in the communistic Poland. Jacek was participating in the democratic opposition against the communistic government—participating in forbidden self-education groups, printing and distributing forbidden books, poems, and magazines. He was involved in the Independent Student Association and actively supported the Solidarity movement during its legal and illegal operations. He was arrested twice by the communistic regime — the first time when trying to cross illegally through the Iron Curtain, and the second time when transporting a political magazine called Direction.

After finishing medical university and receiving a grant to work on his PhD, he decided to change his career by entering entrepreneurship. In 1989, the hyperinflation hit Poland, and he was forced to close a company he co-owned with his friends. It was the first time he experienced how the free market works. After losing all his money, he decided to emigrate to support his family. In 1991, he emigrated to the Netherlands where he worked first as a manual worker, and later as an independent advisor. In 1993, he started his own business in network marketing, growing it to over a million US dollars in sales. During this period, Jacek was traveling extensively to many European countries and to the USA, discovering different cultures. In 1996 Jacek discovered his passion to Information Technology. He learned himself how to build and program computers.

He worked from 1999 till 2005 as a Project Manager and ICT Manager in different companies. In 2005, Jacek started an IT company, which he joined fulltime. Today, Jacek is co-owner of a number of companies in the Netherlands and Poland. He still travels a lot to different countries in Europe, Africa, USA, and Asia. He is married and has three children and two grandchildren. He is sharing his experiences and personal philosophy as a public speaker and author.
