I felt all the fear, but I did it anyway.

I remember so well that I didn’t even had the confidence to speak up in a room. I was an introvert and I rather listened to John Mayer music in my room than going out and showing myself. I had a very low self-esteem which caused me to do deal with body image issues and making decisions based on what everyone around me wanted and did, but not doing what I secretly really desired to do.

After a lot of mental break downs I decided something needed to change. I am naturally a very curious person so I decided to do research on how the mind works and why I was not enjoying my life anymore. Eventually I had so many moments of “why do other people don’t know this?” and “why don’t we get this thought at school?”. I knew there was going to be a day that I will be helping others to gain confidence and follow their heart.

 But first I needed to find my own journey and follow my own heart. I said NO to things that other people said YES to. I stopped following the crowd and start asking questions “WHY” and “DO I AGREE`?”. A lot of people didn’t support me and looked at me like I was crazy for choosing a different path.

Fall down seven times, stand up eight.

After a lot of falling down and standing up again I quit everything and I moved to Bali starting my journey of figuring out how to follow my heart. I started a Jewerly business and after that a marketing agency. Eventually I knew that I wanted to coach others in following their heart and this was my purpose and my souls mission.

Since I was bullied for years and at the age of 16 I felt so lonely, different and not confident. I CHOOSE to dive into personal development, manifestation and learning how the brain works. I eventually did my NLP Practitioner, NLP Master a Relationship Coaching and Allround Coaching program. I dived deep into how to change, become the most confident version of myself and learn how to train my brain as much as I train my body in the gym. The brain is a muscle you need to train in order to succeed in all things in life. 

I started my own businesses without any knowledge and yes you need a strategy and know how to build an online business, but the most important is working on your mindset. That’s why I believe in a 80% mindset and 20`% strategy. I help you build your confidence and understand how to use your mindset to achieve success in your life and business. 

Was it scary to take all these jumps out of my comfort zone yes? But for me it was scarier realizing that if I don’t take this risk I will end up being unhappy and “comfortable” but still longing for a different life. Giving my freedom to the hands of someone else. That sounds scarier to me.

Just take a leap of faith and go for it.

I started creating my dream life by trying new things. Living in your head doesn’t bring you anywhere but worrying.

I have learned so much starting those businesses. I didn’t had any experience with being an Entrepreneur even in my family or friend groups nobody did what I was doing. Therefore I know that it can be an overwhelming rollercoaster being an solo-entrepreneur not having someone to hold you accountable.

Freedom is possible for: everyone who is willing to take a risk to invest in themselves and is open to make mistakes and learn from it. Are you willing to look inside to what you really want and are you ready get out of your comfort zone to go and get it? 

I follow my heart even though everyone told me not to do it. That’s why I experience the most beautiful adventures.  Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.Don’t listen to people who are not where you want to be in life. Ask for help and learn from people that are already where you want to be. 

I don’t believe in living in the society box, I’m an out of the box thinker. If everyone goes left, there’s a good chance I’ll go right.
