Three questions for Tobias

To be or not to be! Have you ever faced this question in your life?

As a dancer, the question ‘to be or not to be (a dancer)’ regularly comes up: if I have an injury, if I have too many or too few performances coming up, on reaching a certain age…

Have you ever had pension role models?

No, not at all. I looked into these topics very thoroughly when I started off as a freelancer.

What pensions advice would you offer your younger self?

Start as early as possible! Even if it’s not sexy or seems very distant.
