MY STORY AND….
…what I never told before:
So when I was in grad school in Austria I was thinking about what I wanted to do. This was 1998, I think.
I knew that I wanted to do something that didn’t require me being glued to a chair or working in a place 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.
I wanted to be paid well and have a lot of free time. So I decided to become a teacher.
It meant to be in school for 22 hours a week and then work from home to prepare the next lessons, to check the kids’ homework etc.
I had 8 weeks off in summer and a couple more weeks (Christmas, spring,…)
I found it was the perfect job, I liked to teach, and I was, good at it.
In the year I graduated, they told us that we probably wouldn’t get a job as a teacher, because there were not enough jobs around.
They told us to apply for jobs in the whole country. I was like ‘Nope’. Don’t care.
I want a job in my area or none at all. I didn’t listen to them. Other students asked me if I was crazy, but I didn’t care. I was already manifesting what I wanted. (At that time I never heard anything about manifesting and The Secret hype wasn’t a thing back then, so I didn’t know I use the Law of Attraction.)
Anyways. I got a job in the village next to my hometown which according to the professors wasn’t possible.
I never – until today – told anyone that I wanted to be a teacher because I didn’t want to work as much as all the other people around me.
I never believed that we are here on earth to be slaves and to work, work, work, especially doing something you don’t enjoy.
It makes my stomach cringe when I think about how many hours of our lives we spent in jobs in the past, we don’t even like. Some are still doing it.
I couldn’t tell or talk to anyone back then about my truth, because I grew up in a country with a mentality like this:
Only if you work hard you are a good person. The harder, the better.
The best work is hard physical work.
Don’t be lazy or a scrounger.
Never be different.
You have to blend in.
So I never told anyone about what I truly believed.
Two years after I started working as a teacher, I got an offer to be a private teacher on a privately owned catamaran, while sailing the world. So I joined the family from California, who are my relatives btw, by and taught the two girls.
We sailed the Mediterranean Sea, crossed the Atlantic Ocean, and sailed the Caribbean. I earned good money, saw amazing places, and worked a couple of hours per day.
This was one of the experiences where I started to see the world differently.
It was amazing to be part of a journey with people who can live this kind of lifestyle.
A lifestyle that is so different from the life I was used to.
After coming back, not knowing if I would get a job again in my area, I was a different person. This was the time where I was thinking about how life could be.
After a couple of months, I had a job as a teacher again and also as a principal of a small school. I was working there for a couple of years and had a fair amount of struggles with the beliefs of the people of how I should be, how I should run a school, and how important going to church with the children is.
I felt like I was living again in an environment that had nothing to do with my beliefs.
Around this time my relationship with my first love broke up and sometime later my father committed suicide.
I don’t have to tell you how hard it was.
This was also the time where I started with energy clearing, energetic healing, and spirituality in general (in a practical way).
I started learning more about energy, the energy of colors, Feng Shui, and I had lots of sessions at and with a healer to be able to go through this hard time. I took courses and educated myself in anything I could. And I never told anyone about it in my community.
I always wanted to learn more and grow. I knew back then that life on earth could and should be different, but I couldn’t quite grip it or understand how exactly.
After six years as a principal and teacher, my life changed again. I was seeing a car I liked. An Audi A3 sports edition and I test drove it.
Then suddenly a thought occurred: Would you rather have a new car or take a year off and be able to travel to places you wanted to but never could before?
I didn’t have to think for long. I kept my „old“ car, which wasn’t old and I took a year off.
I traveled to Laos, Cambodia, took a solo road trip around the US, and had the time of my life.
I wanted to learn something new as well, so I started studying law at the University. I was able to study it online and from home and only go there to do my exams.
So I studied law and went back to working as a teacher. During this year I felt that I didn’t want to continue working as a teacher until I was able to retire.
I didn’t like it anymore. I didn’t like the changein of the school system.
I like teaching and helping others but not in this kind of way.
So I decided to leave this security of working as a teacher and stepping into the unknown.
Others told me again I was crazy.
Around this time I stumbled upon the book The 4 Hour Work Week and it spoke to me. I read it in one or two days and my heart lightened up.
It was exactly what I wanted to do.
Be my own boss, help other people, and have an amazing life.
Well, it took me a couple of years to figure out what it was exactly I wanted to do.
I cleared a lot of negative beliefs and blocks around abundance, worthiness, and lots more.
I learned from online gurus and followed the next shiny object, which never worked. Or it worked but I felt miserable because I didn’t like it in the end.
I started a business, selling physical products via Amazon. I learned the ins and outs and if I continued with it, I’m sure it would have been a great success. But after about 9 months in, I knew I couldn’t do it anymore.
It was a pain in the butt. I didn’t like Amazon support, doing customer support, and all the shipping and sourcing. I’m more of a creative person, a teacher, coach, mentor, and I do and love energy clearing and healing.
I also run a blog around traveling which is mainly in German. One of my favorite things, besides business, is traveling. I like it and that’s why I keep it up. (This is also where the name of my website comes from travelpreneur = travel + entrepreneur)
But my main focus and what makes my heart sing is helping other women to start, grow and run online businesses in various industries and niches.
I love to help them clear blocks and negative beliefs from the subconscious and conscious that stop them from having the business and life they dream of.
I love helping them, after we cleared the energy, on how to run and grow their business their way and being an entrepreneur that can do whatever they want to do.
It can be, it should be and it has to be easy.
You should live your life according to your dreams and what lights you up.
Do it your way. Follow your soul. Follow your gut.
Sometimes it takes a while to figure out what you want or how you want it to be.
Especially if you have no help.
As you can see, I did a lot of different things, not knowing why I did it or how it will work out.
I made it way harder than it had to be because I wanted to learn it by myself or try to save money.
In the end, what I learned is that it is very important to find someone who can help you. You save yourself a lot of time, energy, and money.
While a lot of coaches and mentors focus on strategies (their strategies) to sell more, be more, have more, I do it differently.
I know that it’s 90% mindset and doing the inner work and 10% strategy.
First, it’s important to remove and release the blocks that stop you from having success in the first place.
These are the not-so-obvious things I can help you to clear and release. Most of the time you are not even aware that they hinder you in your business success.
That’s when you try another and another strategy and follow the blueprint of this and that person but it never seems to work.
No wonder. It is their style, not yours.
When we worked through your limiting beliefs, we can concentrate on the strategy that suits you. With my business knowledge, I can help you to find your way.
If there is one piece of advice I can give you it would be this:
Find yourself a coach or mentor who works with you closely. Don’t follow the next shiny object or a system that seems to work for them.
Find your way.
Find a coach or mentor that helps you do it your way. Listen to your gut and you will find the perfect mentor, coach, teacher.
Running a business and having an amazing life should not be hard. You don’t have to do it the hard way like me.
(Although in hindsight I’m grateful for my experiences because they made me the person I am today and also helped me to be a better coach, mentor, and energetic healer.)
If it is aligned with your soul it is easy, fun and you will be very successful with it.
You can not not be successful.
