What's your business, and who are your customers?
For the past 20 years, I have been working with people from all over the world, guiding them to reconnect with their potential and soul purpose so they can create happy and magical lives. I offer online workshops and live retreats worldwide, and my most recent creation is my book, "The Soul on Fire," published in English, German and French.
"The Soul on Fire" is a revolutionary, energetic journey inviting you to new possibilities for living. It is full of innovative, practical tools, journal prompts, daily exercises, and digital resources in your special online Member's Area, designed to invite you to step into your greatness. This book is intended for everyone, actually! It's full of life-changing tools for adults and kids alike. It can contribute to you in any challenging situation and also help you shift patterns and things that you haven't been able to change for a longer time. It is for everyone who is searching for different possibilities and has a sense that there is more to this life.
Tell us about yourself
I am a mom of a wonderful son and am passionate about contributing to helping adults and kids to live the highest version of themselves and be happy!
I started this work over 20 years ago and have discovered so much more about my capacities with every new client. I would say that the Universe was pushing me to start working with people, nudging me step-by-step, and bringing me possibilities. My motivation is fun, the joy of creating, gifting, and seeing wonders unfold in the lives of the people I work with.
I am astounded by my new book, "The Soul on Fire," as well - whenever I grow, the book's energy expands and grows as well. Every time I do a book reading event, I am in awe of the change that is possible. Also, people have been telling me that on a bad day, they just opened the book at random and read one page, and their entire energy shifted, and they felt at ease again... It's such an amazing creation!
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I am very grateful that I reached financial freedom and independence by doing what I love and contributing to others in the process. Every time I work with a client, whether a child or an adult and their life changes, it is a miracle for me. And each one of those moments is my greatest accomplishment.
I also love collaborating with other people, doing podcasts and interviews, and being featured in different articles... all of those are also fantastic accomplishments.
And I wonder what is possible now with you; who is reading this?
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
For me, the biggest challenge is to be in tune with the timing of changes and adjustments in the business and to take action at the very moment when they are required. And also to keep outgrowing my business, again and again, always looking for space to expand. It is also a challenge to have an allowance and be willing to outgrow myself and my own limitations or beliefs.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Follow your heart and jump in. Don't think it through, and don't make plans. Adjust with any new awareness that you get along the way.
- Be willing to do the steps which are required of you to outgrow and out-create your business constantly.
- Keep on going. Create with the Universe instead of your mind. Ask, and you shall receive.
