Olle Lindholm

Hej! My name is Olle Lindholm, and I am an author, speaker and coach based in Sweden.

I am on a mission to make psychology and mental health skills accessible to everyone.

I am soon starting my fourth year as a master’s student in psychology at Karolinska Institute. I created this site to share my journey.

I spend my time writing for, speaking to, and coaching people who are bravely choosing to lead their best lives.

I have been writing online since 2012. My work has been featured in Lifehack, Sitepoint, The Next Web, and Spoon Agency, among others.


I have written three books to date:

The Inner Scorecard

The Inner Scorecard teaches an inside-out approach to self-improvement that is both fun and effective. It’s a field guide for the hungry learners who want to live life on their own terms.

The Awesome Adventures of Olle and Lou is a story about an unlikely friendship. It’s an exciting coming-of-age story that will take you around the whole world.

Listening to Sophie is a children’s book I wrote in high school when my mum got blood cancer. I had to create something.

Let's learn together

In 2019, I began to gather a community of lifelong learners from all over the world via my newsletter. It covers strategies, resources, tips and support to help you develop the necessary skills to thrive on your own terms.

In 2021, I officially started the psychology program at Karolinska Institute to dive deeper into the world of mental health and connect with the broader global health community.

My goal in 2024 is to share my process for self-improvement and to share the things I’m learning.


“I believe psychology has the power to make the world a better place.”

My learning philosophy

The red thread running through most of what I do is a desire to expose myself to new ideas, people, and perspectives.

I believe in the power of learning from each other and creating things that help us flourish. I write and speak a lot about self-improvement, psychology, mental health, and how to live a life true to yourself.
