Perfectionist by nature, I strive to be the best myself in anything I do. I approach every obstacle as an opportunity to grow and learn. seeing myself getting fitter, stronger and faster makes me keep on pushing and striving for more, breaking my limits.

RESUME



Oleksandr Tereshchuk

I am 29 years old and I live my life to the fullest. I do what most people would consider “crazy and I love it”. Why? Because simple life is boring. I am into self-development. Every day I strive to improve physically, mentally and spiritually. I compete in Ironman triathlons around the world. This gives me the opportunity to travel, meet new people and explore my physical limits. I strive to come in the first place of my age-group in the Ironman race. I am lucky to have a small amount of athletic talent and I work every day to make the most of it. I have placed a bunch of first, second and third places in Obstacle Course Racings, such as Spartan, Tough Mudder and Terrain racing.


Speaking of travel – I don’t believe in tourism in its conventional sense. I am into “sports tourism”. The best way to explore a new place is on your feet. I choose to wake up at 5 am and run 20km through the streets of a new place I’m in. I prefer to ride my bike 100km around the suburbs and take it all in. I would swim across the lakes and scare all the fish in it. Why? Because I can.

I used to live in Toronto, working as a self-driving vehicle test engineer. I held a prestigious IT job at Uber ATG (advanced technology group). Six-figure job, benefits, amazing benefits did not make happy, so I tried different things. I started several small businesses, neither of which had great financial success. However, I gained a ton of experience. I have absolutely zero doubts that I can succeed in business, so I continue trying. I am an entrepreneur at my core. Let’s talk about business. I always have new ideas and would love to hear yours.

Because of COVID-19, I’ve been laid off from my full-time job at Uber. I perceive this as one of the best things that happened to me. It changed everything and opened countless opportunities for me. I decided that this is the perfect time to re-invent myself… again.


I went “cold turkey” and sold 80% of my “stuff”. I moved out of the box which I used to rent. I traded comfort for freedom. I bought myself the biggest truck you can find: 7-litre turbocharged diesel on six wheels. I put the biggest 4-season camper on top of the truck and said Sayonara, bitches! to my neighbours. I am not coming back. Why? I love this question. Ask me and I would be happy to tell you exactly why.


A DREAM TEAM

My buddy Blake keeps me company in all the crazy things I put myself through. He is a Scottish Terrier – the smartest and most intelligent dog you’ve ever seen. We are a dream team.


As of today (Aug 2020), my main mission is:

To make this lifestyle sustainable
To make it work

To make it work financially. Moreover, I strive to “make my first million out of RV“. I make an assumption that I can make it work and achieve my desired outcome. This is only an experiment and the is no failure of success. I either prove the assumption to be true or false. Either way, I’ll be happy.

I have an exceptionally good education and a unique life experience that I am proud of. I graduated from Grand Canyon University (Colangelo College of Business) with honours in an MBA degree. In addition, I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Software Engineering (Computer Science). I have experience starting and running businesses. I possess three years of experience working in the autonomous vehicle development industry as an engineer. I am fit AF and I am smart. I speak three languages, and I am a very good writer. I am also modest, as you can tell. Haha!
