I liked the following quotes and remarks from the interview:

  • I am a business mentor and I help new holistic entrepreneurs and businesses to set up. I help them with the technical and administrative side of their work as I help them get off the ground. I consult clients and sometimes I also do some practical work myself. 
  • I came from corporate life, I was a banker and I was looking for my passion. This was after I got my son, about 2 years ago, my job took too much of my time.  I was a bit lost at first, but then I came across health coaching. This really inspired me and I loved it. The health coaching led me to my current work. 
  • When I quit my job at the bank I really wanted to disconnect from there. But I realized that I learned so many useful things, businesswise. Things like time blocking for important things such as family, socials media and blogging. I also made sure that I measured and tracked my incomes and expenditures. 
  • I combine food and health coaching with the mentoring and coaching of holistic coaching. I really didn’t think that I could have combined these two. I learned however that it is very important to help your clients understand what absolute value you can offer. My ideal client is a holistic coach. 
  • Follow your heart and if it tells you to get out there, then just do it! I find a lot of people who get scared because people in their circle tell them otherwise. Be your own individual and make your own path.
