Birthday Reflections: Who would have thought this would be my life at 32?

28th October – 32 years ago I was born into this world. It’s true that age is just a number but sometimes I still can’t believe I’m already 32. Wasn’t it just yesterday that I turned 18? And back when I was 18, would I have ever thought that my life would look the way it does now at 32? Probably not… I would’ve never thought that my early 30s would be so crazy. Back then I though that once you hit 30 your life is basically over because 30 is “so old”, how wrong I was, haha. So far… Read More »Birthday Reflections: Who would have thought this would be my life at 32?

My Fasting Experience

Last month I decided to go on a therapeutic fast (“Heilfasten” in German). I always wanted to do a real fast, just as an experiment and because I know there are true health benefits coming with it. I had done two 3-day juice fasts in the past but I feel they were not ideal as I constantly felt hungry because of all that fruit sugar spiking my blood sugar levels all the time. Now that I had just come back from Australia I felt this was the right time to take it slow, go inwards and to support the process… Read More »My Fasting Experience

Family and Friends don’t support you?

So many people are scared to leave the “normal” path, to try something new, because they are worried what their friends and family think.⁣ “they say this is a stupid idea”⁣ “they laugh about me”⁣ “they tell me I won’t be successful”⁣ “they don’t support me”⁣ ⁣ Okay… not ideal, a bit discouraging, I get it. But hey – so what?⁣ ⁣ Please don’t tell me you really let this keep you from pursuing your passions, your dreams?⁣ ⁣ Family and friends usually just want the best for you but let’s be honest – often they just don’t know what… Read More »Family and Friends don’t support you?

Masculine/Feminine Energy & Business

For years we have put a lot of emphasis on the masculine energy when it comes to business and leadership:⁣ action taking, efficiency, thinking, reasoning, giving, strenght⁣ ⁣ while labeling the feminine energy as weakness:⁣ feeling, intuition, creativity, nurture, softness, empathy, receptivity⁣ ⁣ The typical “hustle mentality” has always been associated with being successful and worthy.⁣ Fortunately the world is changing and people are waking up to the realization that it’s rather unhealthy to be in your masculine energy 24/7 – as men and women. You only need to look at how stressed and burnt out our society is. I… Read More »Masculine/Feminine Energy & Business

5am Club?!

Where are all my high-ambitious self-optimizing overachievers who belong to the 5am club? Just kidding…⁣ ⁣ But honestly: For years I thought to be successful you need to get up super early and hustle as if there’s no tomorrow. Personally I’m someone who naturally wakes up between 6 and 7 but that’s still not my most productive time. Even though I get up early I like to take my time and have a slow start into the day, maybe add in a workout, and then 2-3h later tackle my to-do list (typical chronotype „bear“). I used to get up between… Read More »5am Club?!

Be the author of your life.

If someone tells you that you can’t do XYZ – what they actually mean is that THEY can’t do XYZ.⁣ ⁣ We all see life through our own lense and we say what we say mainlybecause of our own experiences and belief systems.⁣ So don’t let anyone tell you what you can or can’t do.⁣Other people’s limiting beliefs don’t have to be yours.⁣ It’s always good to ask for advise and see if that helps you in your decision process. Family and friends usually only want the best for us butin the end only YOU know what’s the best for… Read More »Be the author of your life.

Employee vs Self-Employment

When I was younger I always said that I never wanted to be self-employed because I thought that means owning some kind of firm or shop in a certain location. The whole working online concept wasn’t really a thing back in the early 2000s. So I thought having your own business means being bound to a certain location and that it also means a lot of risk, investment, responsibility working 24/7. In Germany we use the word „selbstständig“ for being self-employed which translates to „selfalways“. I remember my parents always telling me: you work for yourself, you work around the… Read More »Employee vs Self-Employment

Jump without a safety net.

Jump and the net will appear.⁣⁣The safety net won’t appear BEFORE you make the big step you’re too scared to make, it appears AFTER you did.⁣⁣⁣⁣I made that experience over and over and over again in the past. I did a lot of things without exactly knowing what’s gonna happen, how my life would go on, how to support myself and so on.⁣⁣⁣⁣Whenever I let go, followed my intuition and allowed me to do what felt right to me, everything magically fell into place.⁣⁣Doors opened, opportunities appeared, I met the right people at just the right time, I got the… Read More »Jump without a safety net.

Shift your mindset.

How I got to where I am? Taking risks, travelling to the other side of the world, always being open for new experiences, learning new skills all the time, opening doors I didn’t know were there,…?⁣ I shifted my mindset. Growing up we learn a lot of limiting beliefs in our Western society. ⁣We learn that living basically means going to school, studying, getting a „safe“ (hello Covid19) job, paying the bills.⁣⁣This seems to be the only correct path to follow.⁣Isn’t it weird how most people don’t seem to be too happy doing this?⁣Or should I better say: It’s NOT… Read More »Shift your mindset.
