I’ve always known a life of freedom was meant for me (and the same is true for you!)
Even as a little kid I knew that later, when I was all grown up, I wanted to be free.
I wanted to do what I want, when I want, for no other reasons than that I want it. I pictured myself living in a way where I could always do as I please. Just like Pippi Longstocking!
I remember my dad telling me that this kind of freedom was great, but it was just not how the world worked.
“For you maybe”, I thought. “For me, it does!”
But I was in for a rude awakening …
After I finished high school, I started to live on my own and went to university. “This is it!” I thought. “My life of endless freedom has begun!”
Well … not exactly.
I dropped out of university after a couple of years and two unfinished studies. I hopped from job to job for a while and didn’t I love that either. I was horrified.
OMG! My dad was right! How could that be?!
I felt stuck for a couple of years until I turned 30 and thought, “Fuck this! This is NOT going to be my life!”
I hired a career coach to find out what would give my work meaning and fulfillment.
This was a very powerful move and a significant turning point in my life.
I realized that what I loved to do was to coach others who were ready to find purpose in their work and life. I got a coaching education and quit my job to start my own coaching business. And I haven’t looked back since!
I’ve translated my desire for freedom into every single aspect of my business.
It’s one of my guiding principles in every decision I make in business and life.
From my schedule to who I work with to how I structure my business to how I spend my days, it’s ALL guided by what I truly want and what would be most ideal for me.
This is why I love my business (and life) for 100% now.
Not 80%. Not 90%. But a 100%. Why settle for anything less?!
I know you’re ready for that, too.
And this is exactly what I help my clients with.
In my 1–1 coaching I help them create the business, money, and lifestyle that makes them 100% happy-in whatever way this looks like for them.
