Get to know me.
I’m so happy to have you here. <3
My name is Alexandra.
I was born in ’88 and grew up in a small town near Stuttgart, Germany.
In May 2018 I left my old life in Germany behind to travel to Indonesia where I spent 3 wonderful and inspiring months before flying to Australia. Currently I’m living in the Australian outback where I will be staying until summer 2020 before going back to Germany for who knows how long.
After graduating from highschool, I went through a business management training and worked in that field for one more year. Eventually I decided to leave that company after that year to study health promotion. After graduating I went back to working in my old job for new company as my only goal back then was to save up money to go travelling long-term, a big dream of mine. After getting my degree I wasn’t really too interested in the jobs that fit what I studied anyway as they were mostly about implementing and evaluating health programs for companies which is not what I want to do. I chose my field of study as I had always been interested in health and nutrition and my dream has always been to help individuals with my knowledge and experiences. For the future I can still see myself in the health coaching field but back then my priority was to go travelling. Then I started another business online which combined is why I haven’t seriously pursued the health coaching path yet but I might in the future as I’m still passionate about it.
What is this website all about?
I’ve been interested in living a healthy lifestyle for years and in 2012 at the age of 23 I quit my office job to go and study something I’m truly passionate about. 3 years later I finished my studies with a bachelor degree in health promotion.
Since then I’ve come a long way. I’ve learnt a lot about different diets and made my own experiences with different ways of eating, working out and just living in general. I’d been a vegan for almost 4 years, even wrote my bachelor thesis on this topic, but in the end I came to the conclusion that I need to go into another direction for different reasons, my health being one of them.
I’ve done my fair share of travelling, a lot of it being solo travelling, and through this have learnt a lot about myself , other countries, cultures and people. I’m so grateful for having made all these amazing experiences and human connections and hold all of these memories dear to my heart. Without travelling I wouldn’t be who I am today.
Mindset & Thoughts
I want to be open with you and share personal thoughts about whatever comes to my mind. I know a lot of people struggle with the same things in life or have the same ideas and just don’t know that there is someone who feels exactly the same. When I read about the life and thoughts of other people and about their everyday struggles, I’m so grateful to see I’m not alone. We all want to grow as people, be healthy, have loving relationships and live a happy life that aligns with our values and beliefs. It’s so inspiring to hear about other people’s unique stories. I hope that the stories and tips I share, are inspiring and helpful for others as well.
Growing up I never wanted to be self-employed but I had a completely outdated picture on my mind about what it means to be self-employed which changed after learning about people who work online, so called “digital nomads”. I realized that through the internet the world has changed and that having your own business doesn’t necessarily mean investing ten thousands of money, renting a firm building, employing a lot of people, sitting in an office all day just as you do in a corporate job and so on. For about 5 years now I’ve been learning a lot about business relating topics, especially social media marketing, which made me confident enough to start making money online myself and to help others do the same.
