Timea Buchelova, Business Development Representative - EMEA at LogicMonitor

Position: Business Development Representative- EMEA

How long have you been at LogicMonitor?

6 months

Why did you want to work at LogicMonitor?

There is a thriving company culture. From the day I walked through the door I was welcomed with opened arms. Everyone is there to support and help whenever necessary. No matter which department they are in, it’s like one big family. Also, the career progression opportunities are outstanding. As long as you put the work in, the sky’s the limit for success. 

What is the most rewarding part of your job? 

Continuously gaining skills and knowledge, meanwhile having a lot of fun bringing business to LM.

What do you find most challenging about your job?

Being a huge self-critic, it’s very easy to let one bad month get me down and blame my efforts for the lack of results. However, the team and management are so supportive and do everything they can to change that the following month, so I can come back 10x better. 

What are some of the new challenges you’ve seen since the shift to remote working?

Not knowing when to stop working. It’s so easy to lose routine and just work from morning to night. Also, not having the support and team spirit in person.

Any tips for staying productive and keeping a good work-life balance while working from home?

Pre-plan every evening and weekend to avoid spending all hours just working. Taking short walks in the middle of the day also helps to break it up and feel more ‘normal’ too. 

Tell us one thing no one knows about you? 

I was born 3 months premature and without a heartbeat. I wasn’t supposed to survive my birth, but I’m now 22 without a single health condition. 

What do you like to do in your spare time?

In my spare time, I like to go to the gym and generally exercise. Endorphins are real! 

What are your top 3 places in London to go for food?

  1. Gaucho – The BEST steak I have ever tasted and the sides are super delicious too. 
  2. Flesh & Buns – Bao buns are always amazing, but the flesh & buns ones just hit different.
  3. Vapianos – I’m a big fan of Italian cuisine, and from the pizza to the pasta Vaps is flawless.

Favorite place you’ve traveled?

A favorite place I have traveled to is Santorini in Greece – it’s even more picturesque in person than it is in photos. The best part is that you can hire a quad bike for a reasonable price, and literally travel from one end of the Island to the other in 45 minutes, taking in the beautiful scenery. I would highly recommend spending at least one evening watching the Oia sunset, it’s absolutely magical. Finally, the food is 10/10 in every restaurant and I would advise trying a different one for each meal. 

What’s your favorite book?

The Secret – Rhonda Byrne. This is one of my favorite books. Simply as I am a big believer in the law of attraction and visualization. I truly believe that the energy and thoughts you put out into the world will be mirrored by the universe. If you really visualize your future the way you want it to be, it will come true because you won’t let yourself move off track as you are so set on that goal. It’s also a fantastic read for anyone who is inundated with unwelcomed negative thoughts and really helps to shape a more positive mental outlook. This book got me through some of my toughest years. 

What is the best advice someone has given you?

Success sits outside of the comfort zone, if you’re comfortable, you can do better.

What advice would you give to other people in your field of work? 

Always remember the motivation behind what you do. If something doesn’t go well/the way you expect; remind yourself why you got into this field in the first place
