This side job he does not make him loosen his hands or ignore his main job responsibilityas a sprinter. "Being a sprinter remains as my priority today. Even though I have another business, but I still have full responsibility and have to focus my main work " said Iwan.
Iwan was a sprinter who pioneered opening an online business in his work environment, and some of his colleagues were inspired by Iwan's business. Iwan did not feel discouraged or angry when his colleagues opened online businesses. "I am happy that other friends also sell online, which of course can increase their income".
Although the Covid-19 pandemic is ongoing, Iwan is not afraid to continue working around picking up customer packages.

Iwan admitted that even though Covid-19 pandemic is currently still ongoing, the amount of packages he picked up remained normal as usual even though there were some customers whose business stopped running temporarily because of this pandemic.
