Entrepreneurship in Sweden Reminds Me of Our Shops' Spirit

This reminded me a lot of the entrepreneurial spirit that we find in our shops. Do you, too, have the gnosjöandan spirit?

My Swedish friend posted this on Facebook, and I did my best to figure out the meaning.

One of my international contacts through the Syndicat International du Decolletage posted an intriguing photo on Facebook. I did my best to try to figure out what “gnosjöandan” means, and eventually, I came up with “entrepreurship.” (The Facebook post was in Swedish.)

So I responded to my friend with “Entrepreneurship?” and waited to see how well I had done. You be the judge, and by the way, don’t be too surprised to find out that you, too, have the “gnosjöandan spirit.”

Gnosjöandan spirit:

  • We are motivated by others’ successes.
  • We encourage cooperation.
  • We are ambitious and dare to be great.
  • We are street smart.
  • We are doers.
  • We don’t overcomplicate things.
  • We are generous and helpful.
  • We are thrifty, but never stingy.
  • We dig where we stand.
  • We are proud of the “gnosjö spirit.”

This reminded me a lot of the entrepreneurial spirit that we find in our shops. What do you think? Do you, too, have the gnosjöandan spirit?
