The weekview Story


My name is Markus; I’m responsible for marketing here at weekview.

I’m 34 years old and grew up in a small village in Bavarian. After graduating from business school Landshut, I started an apprenticeship as IT specialist for system integration. I have always had an affinity for technical equipment, in particular, computers.

However, my professional career was quickly clouded,

I slipped into the #drug addiction and became a #heroin addict.
The life of a drug addict is anything but planned, and it lacks #structure or target in #life – except satisfying the #addiction. Thoughts such as “What #Life goals do I have?” or “What do I want to achieve in my life? Were not only strange to me, but I also found it stuffy and boring. 

After 13 years of excessive #drug use, I got to know my current boss Nikolaus Obersteiner via a Christian drug institution. After a hard and long journey of withdrawal and new beginnings in all areas of my life, I decided to continue my education as a specialist for facility management (and no, this is not a caretaker’s job).
After completing the advanced training, I inevitably asked myself these questions:
What am I supposed to do with my life? In what direction should I direct my power and time, now that I am clean and have a new life?

weekview was the answer to change the “aimlessness” to “planned”.

I started working in marketing. In my spare time, I started to absorb everything I got to read about it online and offline. Nikolaus gave me the chance to get involved in weekview and gave me a job, although I was a real greenhorn and had no professional training in this field.

I was a person who saw #planning as #help for people who can’t remember anything. I was quickly proven wrong and can now say that I had no idea about time management and what my goals, let alone my abilities, were.
Working at weekview has not only changed me professionally and personally, but weekview has also helped me to see the bigger picture (of my life and what remains when I am no longer here). What I focus on and recognise as the #essential in my life, is a consequence of time management.

My life has taken a radical #turn,

and I am very happy to be able to tell you personally about it today. In the meantime my #office has been filled with planning tools, but also private life things have changed a lot.


I’d like to leave you with one more thing:

I’ve literally beaten “giants” in my life, and you can, too.
If you don’t know how or you have any questions, feel free to send me an email to or leave a comment, I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

Best regards
