Q: How were you inspired to start your business?

In my 20s I was living a very toxic life. I was sick a lot, overweight, anger and frustration were my dominant emotions at that time, hated my body and most aspects of my life. In my late 20s something changed, I don’t know if I hit rock bottom (even though I considered suicide a few times), but I knew deep down that I couldn’t live that way any longer and something has to change. It was a decision I made more in my subconscious mind I guess, it’s like my higher self or God decided for me. From that point all kind of things to help me on that path came into manifestation. Long story short, 6 years later, I decided I want to be that light for anyone who wants to change their life. I did it alone, even though it felt I had armies of angles behind me most of the time, but I was thinking how amazing would be to have someone who doesn’t judge you or your actions, who is there for you to inspire and give you the tools to make the changes easy and fun, someone who believes in you and sees in you qualities you can’t see yourself. I figured if I can get a job like that, that’s what I want to do for the rest of my life. Because there were no jobs like that advertised anywhere, I decided to create one and this is how my business was born.

Q: How much do you love what you do?

Let’s put it that way: if I would be the richest person in the world and I wouldn’t need to make any money, I would still do what I do now. 

Q: If you could go back to a point in your life when you were facing a challenge, what inspirational advice would you give yourself?

There are two quotes I remember each time I am facing a challenge: “This too shall pass” and “Life is too important to be taken seriously”.

Q: Tell us how your business inspires your clients!

I am at the very beginning right now in this business world, even though I am coaching for a while now. I want my messages to be simple, because I feel we have the tendency of overthinking and overcomplicating things in life. My customers are inspired to make better choices for themselves, not because it’s trendy or because they’re afraid of not getting it right, but because it feels natural to do so. My clients are changing the way they eat because they love their body, not because they want to look in a certain way or are afraid of getting sick. My clients are creating amazing relationships with their partners, with their children, friends and family, but most importantly they create an amazing relationship with themselves, because they understand the value of self-love and self-care. My aim is to help them live a very successful life, and in my books success is measured only by the amount of joy we are feeling. 

Q: Knowing you aren’t alone in something and that there is light at the end of the tunnel means a lot when you are feeling low. What is a typical problem someone you work with might be facing and how do you guide them back into the light?

Nothing is worst when you are feeling low, than having a bright-eyed bushy-tailed person come to you and tell you thigs will get better. You want to punch them in the face (or maybe that was just my unevolved self, 7-8 years ago haha). It’s like having someone who spent 10 years in the dark taken into a film studio and project all the lights on them. I explore with my clients and see exactly where they are, and we take it step by step, with small changes that have immediate results, and we create momentum and keep that going until there is no way back. I point them to the light at the end of the tunnel, I never talk about it, until they discover it themselves. 

Q: As people we are always evolving and learning things on our life journey. Where do you find inspiration?

Books… Audio, Kindle, paper (brand new and second hand), 2-3 at a time ☺ I love reading, I read about 5 books/month. I feel so overwhelmed by social media, that in the recent years I like to be quiet and read more.
Also people around me, I feel inspired by real people around me, not just authors or speakers. Sometimes a child or a friend can be our best teacher, we just have to pay attention to the lesson.
But the real inspiration comes from within. I always listen to my gut. If I read something that doesn’t resonate with me, no matter who said it, I will ignore it, not because I think it’s not true or good advice, but because I know it is not for me in that moment.

Q: Businesses are always evolving too… what are you inspired to do next?

As I said, I just recently took the leap of faith and quit my day job to do coaching full time, so I am still in the creative process in my business. I want to go global and reach as many people as I can with my message at some point. Also writing a book at the moment.
