When you suddenly know what you want to do, you need to follow your heart and do it.

These past few weeks, I tried to find some answers to burning business questions while working. Somehow they kept popping up, and my mind was going in circles. Ever had that feeling where your mind keeps racing long after you’ve closed down your laptop for the day?

It drove me nuts

Somehow, I always had work to do, and when I would carve out some time to write down the answers, there was no inspiration –at all-. Sigh… I kept telling myself it would come to me—one day. Patience may be a virtue, but I am not known for it, and I’m also always looking for ways to grow my business, rather today then tomorrow. So, I wanted to know soon.

I needed a break


Then one morning, I realized I need a break; I need to step out of it, take some time off and devote all the time I have to myself and the questions I have. Three years ago, I did exactly that; I went to Ibiza on my own personal business retreat. I loved it. Why wouldn’t I go again?

The mere thought of it lit me up


I just knew I had to go. Immediately. Leave and be on my own for a few days. Write, journal, do nothing, walk at the beach, or basically do whatever I felt. So there and then I took the decision – I’m off, for at least three days, starting tomorrow. YES!

Going to Ibiza


Since we are in the middle of a lockdown and flying is not actually allowed, I had to develop an alternative plan. This is what I did. I booked time off; cancelled appointments, started playing ‘Ibiza music’, got really excited about it and told everyone I was off. And then I went.

In my head

It was a virtual retreat; I went away in my head. I devoted the time to some poignant questions – and I came back feeling recharged. I also learned some valuable lessons, which I will share with you at a later stage.

Ask yourself this  

Do you feel it’s time to get yourself and your business to the next level, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. What do I love about my service offering and work? Or do I need to change something to love my services for 3000%?
  2. What value do my services bring? What makes me unique in this offering? What value do I love to bring? What feels most important to ME?
  3. What price feels right based on the above two?
  4. How do I show up when I embody the CEO of my life that makes at least XX?
  5. In what way do I like to promote myself as that new CEO?

Biggest takeaway


For me, the biggest take away was that tiny tweaks could be enough and have a major impact indeed. I was expecting a big change, and I found that I already 4000% love my Be the CEO of my life programme, so no big changes there.

What has changed and has come up for me? As per the biggest demand of my clients, I now offer the possibility to work with me for 6 months, at a pace that suits you.

Want to go to Ibiza with me?

Unfortunately, I can’t offer you a retreat right now. I offer you 1:1 private coaching that will make you want to fly to Ibiza afterwards to party and celebrate your success. Contact me to discuss what that would entail and whether you are a good fit.

Amaze Yourself,
