How I turned my childhood dream into reality…
Life doesn’t stop at 40. On the contrary. It was only in my 40s when I truly found my confidence & business mojo and turned my childhood dreams into reality.
I started a fashion magazine. That evolved into a thriving business with courses & programs and more than 31 million women visiting that website to date.
I now have multiple businesses I love that allow me to travel and shape my life the way I want to.
IT WASN’T EASY TO GET THERE….
For years I did not know what to do.
I worked in several companies but felt completely drained when I came home at night. Working for someone else just wasn’t for me.
Then I started a web design business, which was fun for a while but after a few years, creating sites for other people felt too much like ‘work’ again.
I really wanted a business that I truly loved. A business that did not feel like a drain and that would improve the lives of others and give me creative energy. Something that didn’t feel too much like ‘work’ and that would give me the freedom to look after my family, induldge in my love for travel, and go out and ‘play’ whenever I liked.
I just didn’t know how.
A JOURNEY OF TRIALS AND ERRORS…
During this time I had been traveling for quite a few years.
I moved from The Netherlands to Australia to Singapore to China and back to Singapore when my son was 5 years old. I was ready for a change and a new business.
I knew I wanted to do something I was truly passionate about but couldn’t quite found what it was. I started project after project and after a while it felt like I had created a worse job for myself. Only this time I didn’t actually get paid much.
Essentially I was throwing spaghetti at the wall just to see what sticked.
Not surprisingly, nothing did. Something had to change.
I finally hit rock bottom when one of my projects started to fail badly.
I definitely felt like giving up that time.
THE BIG AHA MOMENT….
But that failure turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
I was forced to really rethink my strategy. I knew I had to do things totally differently.
I knew I had to create a business I enjoyed on a topic that I deeply care about.
I went through a process of rediscovery and tuning in with myself to get clarity.
I connected with the things I loved doing and that I knew I was good at.
Through that process I (re)discovered my passion(s) and how I could turn those into a business.
I developed the Self Confidence Formula and learned how to create a s.m.a.r.t.e.r. business.
TAPPING INTO MY GENIUS…
From that moment on, everything just flowed.
Through some of my past failures I now knew what to do and what to focus on.
I had found my calling and I was ready to shout it from the rooftops.
No surprise my business took off!
From my previous failure, I had learned so much and I could now put all that I learned into practise.
