I wanted to change something in my life, but I did not know where or how to start. I needed something to keep me progressing quickly and open new doors for me. That was when I found the Entrepreneurial Warrior Program. I was very pleased to see that the founder of the program was Berke Sarpaş, because I had taken Foreign Trade Training from him years before. Trusting his knowledge, I thought that the program he set up must be extremely valuable, and I applied without any hesitation.

Participating in the Entrepreneurial Warrior Program has been one of the best decisions I have made in my life. This program seemed as if it was created for me at a time when I really needed something so much. No other training program could pull me together and set me in the right direction in such a short time. It is well designed and everything we need is expertly included in the program. Despite it being a very challenging program, I tried to enjoy every moment. I made and am still trying to put what I learned into practice, gaining maximum benefit with the awareness that everything that has been done has a purpose.

I learned a lot throughout the training. One of the sayings that I heard on the first day and with which I was most impressed was “Pain is temporary”. Yes, pain ripens us and it will definitely come to an end one day. We will get stronger if we succeed in overcoming pain. In this training, we learned to become more resistant to pain. In this way, we have learned to increase our mental toughness, think from an objective point of view, and make healthier decisions.

“The two most important days of your life are the day you are born and the day you understand why you were born”. In this program, we tried to find our life goals by questioning why we were born. Go and be wherever you believe you should be! There are no obstacles in your way; just know what you want and live a life for the sake of your beliefs. Success will come when you live for your beliefs, because if there is passion and devotion, there is success. With this mindset, I have built my life from a new beginning and decided what I need to do. It is considerably valuable even just to be able to realize this, because there are so many lifetimes that are lived and wasted without realizing anything... But it is not too late for anything; what is important is to realize this and act. I feel very lucky to have achieved this awareness.

The Entrepreneurial Warrior Program is really an unusual program. It has contributed a lot to my life and I have now found my way: I know what I want to do and how I can achieve it. I would like to thank our dear coach, Berke Sarpaş, who contributed to my development in many ways while reshaping my life, as well as our esteemed mentors and my teammates.
