6- What have been your biggest challenges and how did you overcome them?
My biggest challenge as a business owner would be the solitude of running a business all by yourself. Sure, you get to decide and choose whatever you want to do with your business and clients, but having no one around to discuss things with can be quite daunting.
I even went back to a corporate job at some point, as I had gotten too lonely. Of course, I found out that I wasn’t cut out to be a corporate employee anymore, so after 9 months, I went back to running my own business again.
But ever since that moment, I have made sure I have like-minded people around me. Together, we form a solid bond of trusted advisors and we help and support each other whenever and wherever we can.
7- What personal sacrifices have you made throughout your career?
Personal sacrifices would be mainly time and energy, I would say. And the learning curve as a business owner is incredibly steep, although it’s all worth it. My business is not just my business, it’s my way of contributing to a better world – and from that perspective, it’s not a sacrifice at all.
8- How do you stay focused?
Over time, I’ve found this really hard so I’ve done some thorough research to find out what works for me. Last year, I even published a book called ‘Focus’ with the practices that helped me focus.
First of all, I got to know my Human Design, which gives you an energetic blueprint and manual, so you will understand how you’re wired. Knowing that, it’ll be easier to use the focus tools that work for your type, so you can leave the tools that are not suited for your type.
9- How do you differentiate your business from the competition?
I don’t sell people blueprints, I help them to find their own. I love keeping things real, so I share the good, the bad and the ugly so the people in my audience can learn from my experience.
