In the company of women – a true inspiration!

Success means motivating others daily to be the best version of themselves and make their dreams come true.

On my quest to find more inspiring women, I came across the book In the Company of Women by Grace Bonney. Grace put together a beautiful collection of female entrepreneurs and their journeys. Her questions are thoughtful, inspiring, and motivational. Today, I want to answer some of her questions and give you a chance to know me better.

What does success mean to you?

To me, it is quality of life and impacting others positively. Impacting others means supporting them in their dreams and helping to see the bright sight of life. Quality of life means being able to make choices without fear. Life will never be just sparkly. There will always be some hurdles to overcome. The question is how we overcome these obstacles. Being in the flow and understanding that life is beautiful the way it is represents freedom and quality for me. Fostering a positive mindset in line with your emotional make-up creates the freedom that we need to succeed in life, understanding that this is a step towards a life shaped by the choices based on what you want and not what your fear. This represents success to me.

What did you want to be when you were a child?

I was never one of the children that had a clear picture of what I wanted to be. I wanted to explore and learn more. Asking questions and being curious was indeed something that I could quickly drive others crazy with. My parents taught me that independence and contentment were the two most essential aspects of life that I should be thriving for. It wasn’t imperative how I achieved that.

What is the biggest sacrifice you’ve made by starting or running your business?

I would say that giving up the belief of stability and security in the traditional way have been the two most significant sacrifices that I had to make. The freedom of choice and responsibility were two big wins that came from it. It came with countless discussions about how and why I would give up the security of a stable job and career, but even these eventually pass.

Name a fear or professional challenge that keeps you up at night?

That inner voice that pops up and starts questioning everything that I do. Questioning myself and my ability. I am lucky to have a network around me that will remind me of my bigger goal and vision.

Name the biggest overall lesson you’ve learned in running a business?

Money comes and goes. It took me some time to let go of the fear that there is not enough money. I had to learn that the concept of money is fluent. It comes and goes. Sometimes it is worth more and sometimes less. Depending in which country you are at a given moment. I know now that I will always find new projects and work opportunities. Also, I am good enough in what I do and have the right to say NO to projects or clients that are not aligned with my values.

What is your favorite part of being an entrepreneur?

The responsibility and power – and I mean this very much in a positive way: Trust comes with freedom. The freedom to choose and be independent. It made me stop making others responsible for things that didn’t work out for me. Which, in reverse, allows me to see life as an adventure and learning opportunity. If something didn’t work out, it is not a train smash anymore. It just didn’t work out, and if things went well, I know that I worked for it, and I am responsible for the result. Life becomes a personal choice and not a question of destiny or faith. That gives you a lot of positive power – A power that helps you to stay positive and secure (I don’t mean the power that people use to abuse others). This powers is what keeps you on track and helps you to overcome obstacles. 

If I would not have overcome my fears and stepped out of my comfort zone, I would have never met my husband and would have never started working on my own business.

Living a fulfilled life means living a life that is full of experiences that make you grow, and that makes you a more influential person.

Enough about me. I would love to hear from you. Feel free to play the game and answer the same questions or just get in touch.

XoXo,
