I’m honored that you stopped to read this, I know you have a busy life.

Last summer, a little over 12 months ago, we had just welcomed our second baby daughter to the world
So there were nappy changes, nursing and not much sleep
It was a magical AND intense time personally
Especially since 4 years ago I didn’t think I would have children at the age of 39

What was going on in my business wasn’t in the same magical spot
Failing to secure a big client deal we had worked on for 9 months and then having to change the whole structure and strategy of the business
It was tough not knowing how to support my family

I woke up most mornings with a knot in my stomach, exhausted from all the struggle and work I had put in even if I was pregnant.
Even if I had gone through a c section, even if I was nursing a baby, I was still working round the clock in our summer house
So I knew I had to change things. I knew I could do better than that.

And I took full responsibility, getting up early, before everyone.
To meditate, to breath, to get myself back on track.
Might sound like luxury problems to some of you.
And I know I am so blessed in many ways.

I am still so hungry to serve and to help people adapt and excel while going through changes, help corporations build sustainable engaging work cultures that gives its people and their clients meaning and value in their daily lives.

Fast forward 12 months from last summer
I still need to find creative and meaningful ways to fund the journey. It takes time to build a legacy, and I am in it for the long run. And –
I’ve gotten feedback from clients that I’ve helped them change their lives
We have a cooperation with professors both in Norway and in the UK
We have business partners in multiple countries
We’ve developed a tool that measures enthusiasm and engagement real time
That is giving huge value to our clients while going through change processes
I’m in the process of launching a coaching webinar series, an attract & acquire clients online webinar and webinars for partner consultants that wants to measure engagement for their clients.

And the best of all; we have just bought a house 4 times bigger than the apartment we’ve been living in the last 3 years with a big private garden

I’m not saying all this to impress you, I’m saying it to impress upon you that you should keep going and that every step of the way is a step closer to your end goal.
You’re gonna fail, so know that, dust yourself off and do it again.
Who cares if you fail? It’s what you learn that is important. And what you do with the learning.

It’s still a hustle, I’m still not nowhere near the goals I’ve set – though I am far from where I was last year.
It is about the daily grind, the daily hustle. As far as I know we only have one life, one shot at trying to do the things we think are cool to do.

So my advice to you is to follow great leaders like Tony Robbins, Gary Vaynerchuk, Patrick Bet David, Richard Branson, Oprah Winfrey, Marie Forleo and many more. Find who speaks to your heart, who shakes you out of your pity party and makes you take action.

I wish you the best of luck. And I am here to support you on your journey. Schedule your complimentary call here.

NOW – I’d love for you to share your story with me, what is your learnings and where are you now compared to 12 months ago?

Love & abundance
