Who is Catarina Dahlin?
Born in Sweden I have lived in 7 countries across Europe and Asia. 8 years ago, I came to Switzerland and I’m now in love with the nature and the quality of living here. 5 years ago, I co-founded my business Dagsmejan— sleepwear reinvented. It was our mission to improve on our sleep quality and comfort with what is closest to our skin for a third of our lives, our pyjama. Combining the finest natural fibres with the latest sleep technology to make sleepwear scientifically proven to help you sleep better.
Who or what has strongly influenced your professional career?
I never had this one dream job or a 10-year plan, on the contrary I always have believed that there are many different areas that I could be passionate about. I always try to keep my mind open to spot new opportunities and to not be afraid to leave my comfort zone. It’s when you make mistakes that you learn and grow. That’s what has taken me professionally from consumer goods to the service sector to launching my own business in textiles, an industry I had no direct experience with. Dare to dream, work hard and never give up. Then you can move mountains!
