Helpful and Dedicated – SurfAholics Alpha Spotlight Team Member Valentin Mavrodin

I love the way that SurfAholics Alpha gel together as a team. They look out for one another, help one another and support one another.

Obviously they are not the only team to do this but when you see this in action it is really quite wonderful…to me it captures the whole essence of CTP Teams.

Today on their team blog they have chosen to highlight member Valentin Mavrodin, 27, from Bucharest, Romania.

Valentin has been a member of CTP from two years and regularly attends TELive. In fact he is often not able to log into the live shows (We love you Spreecast) and when this happens he listens to the recordings so he can catch up on what he missed. If you are reading this Valentin you can safely miss last Thursday’s show as it was just Jon and I watching the World Cup on TV…not our best performance but this just happen once every four years.

But back to Valentin. He is dedicated and passionate about working online and constantly wants to learn new things. This attitude will take him far.

He recently quit smoking for two reasons…

  1. smoking is bad for you and you really shouldn’t do it.
  2. the money he saved allowed him to upgrade in AdKreator. (If only more people online had that sort of attitude.) and he has been putting his upgraded AdKreator membership to good use.

The “Did You Know That…?” series of splash pages are all his work…

In case you are not familiar with them the look like this…

It would also be fair to say that he is something of a fan of CTP badges…I mean having a website dedicated to them is a big clue here…

And finally…Valentin will also design a splash page for you…

  38. Ken Wolff says:

    WTG Valentin on turning a bad thing into a good thing. I used to smoke and know how hard it is for some to quit. I used to quit every birthday and on new years. It would last 2 or 3 months and then I would be on a guys night out or something; one cigarette and I would be back to a pack a day. Best thin I ever did was quit for good. The good that you do for helping other people with graphic designs is awesome. Buy two and get one free. What a deal!

  39. WOW thank you everybody for all the GREAT comments! Really appreciate it! Great new stuff yet to come so stay tuned!

  40. It’s great to get to know you a little better Valentin. That’s what team work is all about, is learning about your team members and learning how to work with them together for a common goal. Great stuff Patrick.


  41. Keep up the good work Valentin!

  42. Joao Ramos says:

    Congrats Valentin!
    Not only for your awesome pages but also for quit smoking (i know it’s not easy. I failed on that). Can you be one more inspiration for me to quit smoking, for the 3rd time?
    Keep up the good work! šŸ™‚
