Encouraging to stress less and create an out of the ordinary work-life-combination!
25 yrs of marketing, business and non-profit experience, always with the mission to connect people with their passion thru events, community and communication.
I love to think, write, and research. Create events and initiate projects. All of this with a focus on the question “how do we want to combine work and life in the future?”
I am also an undeniable optimist, crazy about everything Japanese, obsessed with the outdoors and a world traveler.
More about me....
Since my studies in business administration and later when working in marketing, small business management and nonprofit leadership in Germany, Japan, and the USA, the world tried to convince me that polar opposites are limiting, and that career people thrive to be “either this or that”. I refuse to accept that you cannot be both caring as well as being tough.
Allegedly the decisive forces of a successful life and career are statistics instead of people, role plays instead of authenticity, power games instead of cooperation, extraversion instead of introversion and speed instead of depth.
I always resisted this attitude.
I started long time ago to dig into unconventional corporate cultures and holistic approaches to learn how to combine life and work more harmoniously.
Now I inspire others to do the same. Reflect and write about #attention #simplicity #mindset #lifestyle #worklifebalance
