My business story...
From overwhelmed, scattered & struggling to simplified, impactful & wildly profitable.
What I know to be true
Leading an impactful and successful business requires integrated embodiment, in yourself and your offers.
Let me share with you a journey that changed my life. It starts with me sitting on a plane:
As I watched Amsterdam get smaller and smaller from my window seat, I sighed. I was finally on my way to Bali, AKA the “Island of the Gods”. I’d never been before and was excited to see what adventures this journey had in store for me.
Little did I know that this holiday would turn into something that would change my life forever.
I NEEDED to get away. It had honestly been one hell of a year (emphasis on “hell”.)
First, my boyfriend at the time went on a holiday without me, met someone else, and never came back.
Which meant I could no longer afford the dream apartment we shared in the centre of Amsterdam . . . and had to move out.
The dance company I had poured my heart and soul into for years was struggling due to subsidy cuts . . . and our latest performance didn’t sell as much as we hoped it would.
I felt like my whole world was crumbling to pieces around me . . .
and I was exhausted from all the fighting and scrambling I was doing to keep it together.
So I went (nay, escaped) to Bali. Alone. With no plans for if, when, or how I’d make it back.
High above the clouds, on a 16-hour flight, I opened the book I’d just bought at the airport. It was about money — specifically about how to understand and heal your money story.
Being honest, I don’t even know what compelled me to buy the book, let alone read it. Money had never been a topic I was particularly interested in.
I had always taken the route of following my heart in deciding what to do with my life. Which is why I studied theatre and contemporary dance — the field I worked in for many years.
I always had just enough money to get by . . . and growing up with my mum on welfare, I was used to that.
But, looking back, I had come to a point in my life where not having more money meant losing my dream apartment and watching my dance company (and all the people who were in it with me) suffer.
Just getting by was no longer enough.
I was frustrated. Disempowered.
I wanted to get to the point where I could make decisions based on my heart’s desires . . . not based on the limitations of my bank account.
That desire for more and for better had become stronger than my fears. I was SET on finally feeling free, fulfilled, and easeful.
In that book, sitting on the plane, I read for the first time about
“healing your money story”,
“stop trading hours for money”, and
“creating something once and then selling it over and over again”.
It was like a light bulb switched on. I realized it wasn’t as simple as doing things to make more money — I had to change the way I thought about money.
And my desires weren’t just about financial freedom. I craved recognition for all the skills and expertise I’d gathered over the years. I craved feeling like I was valued.
So reading that "Money flows to those who value themselves.” really hit home.
It seemed that earning life-changing money was just as much about your inner journey as it was about your business/strategic journey.
By the time I landed in Bali, I was revved up by this commitment to live my life in alignment with my values and true desires.
Within my first few weeks in Bali, the universe provided everything I needed to drastically change my life. I met online course creators who were serving their audience in deep and powerful ways — and who had the money and time freedom to live life exactly how they wanted, wherever they wanted.
They EMBODIED the purpose and freedom I wanted for myself . . . and seeing them made me confident that I could do it as well.
I just had to figure out how.
After lots of trial and error, several failed launches, and countless hours trying to crack the code, I finally reached the point where I was making 5k, 10k, and then 15k euros per month.
Once I knew who I would feel excited to work with and how I could help them, I created and launched my signature high-touch group program — The ELEVATE to Thrive Academy.
The more I worked closely with the coaches and experts within ELEVATE to Thrive, the more I realized something:
The most powerful way to create an impactful, freedom-driven, and financially abundant business is to offer a high-ticket group coaching program.
Thus the Leveraged Expertise™ Method was born.
I also realised that growing a successful personal brand is about more than just strategy — it requires some deep spiritual and personal growth.
So many of my clients were stuck with some very limiting beliefs that were sabotaging their vision. I knew that because I’d gone through the same thing myself . . . and had to go deep and surrender lots of old beliefs to get to the other side.
Armed with wisdom gained from my life as a dancer and yoga teacher (as well as the spiritual work I learned from Qigong and energy healing), I was able to coach them through the process of not only uncovering their limiting beliefs, but shifting them into empowering ones that SUPPORTED their vision.
My system, the Embodied Vision™ Method, was so impactful that clients began asking me to teach them how to implement it. So I now certify coaches in this method . . . and they go on to use it to help their clients get amazing, transformative results.
And I think that’s the really beautiful thing about my journey: by showing up more fully as myself (with my unique perspectives, thoughts, opinions, and presence) I’ve been able to help others do the same and build high-impact, wildly profitable, and (most importantly) 100% soul-aligned businesses they love.
Which brings me to the main point:
When you live the fulfilling reality of being your true Self, you find that abundance in the form of money, freedom, and ease follows.
Which is why it is my mission to help more people lean into what makes them unique, leverage their knowledge and expertise into simplified-yet-irresistible offers, and create high-impact businesses that easefully bring in the kind of income that changes lives.
Here’s to fully owning your purpose, embodying the message you’re meant to share with the world, and making a big impact on the people you feel called to serve . . .
all while feeling abundant and free.

- I have two adorable cats named Donna & Harvey. (Bonus points if you know which series I was marathoning when I got them.)
- I speak 4 languages (Dutch, English, German, and Spanish). I’m eager to learn even more and can often be found practicing away on Duolingo.
