Hello, nice to meet you.

I’m Tess

This is my story.

Growing up, I was eager to make the most out of life. After graduating university with not one, but two Bachelors, I founded and ran my own company for 2 years. Then I moved to Berlin to work as a social media manager at one of the fastest growing agencies in Europe. My family and friends were convinced that I had it all.

But I was miserable.

I was successful, but I wasn’t significant. After a while, I started noticing how Monday to Friday would blend together. How I was dreading the next meeting. How I was struggling to get up in the morning. Months went by and I ended up having to quit my job because of a bad burnout.

It took me half a year to be able to function again. After the worst was over,
I needed a break from everything. So I decided to go traveling for a couple of months to clear my head. For the first time in my life, I asked myself what kind of life I wanted to live. What do I find important? Who do I want to serve? What have I been doing so far in order to get there?

One day I was sitting next to the pool somewhere in Cambodia when a frangipani flower fell into my lap. Now, I don’t know about you but I am a big believer in gentle cues and nudges from the universe. So I googled the flower’s meaning and found this:

“The Frangipani flower symbolizes new life and positivity. She has a natural strength and delicate softness, and is often given to those who had to overcome great challenges. Let her serve as a gentle reminder to live every day like it’s your last, because you won’t regret not living a fulfilling life afterwards.”

It was everything I needed to hear, and more.

When I got back home, I decided to start my own business (this one!) and help passionate entrepreneurs share their ideas with the world. I wanna empower those who are courageous and eager to make a positive impact on our world.

If there’s one thing I want you to know, it’s that you can create your own happiness. Don’t be afraid to follow your dreams. You are everything you need.

My work life values.

Be yourself

What works for somebody else might not work for you and that’s okay. Don’t compare yourself to the success stories you see online. Focus on your own journey.

Share with intention

I am passionate about sharing meaningful stories that need to be heard. So focus on what’s truly important and get rid of everything else.

Less is more

Promoting your business doesn’t have to be as complicated as some people would have you think. I believe in stripping away the noise and finding solutions that work for you.

Wanna know even more?

I am a Leo and every time I read my horoscope, I’m like ‘YES THAT’S SO ME!’. I’m passionate, dedicated and put my heart into everything I do.

I love the ocean and will always prefer a beach holiday over snow. So I’ve never been skiing. Never, ever. Not planning on it either.

I watch a LOT of movies. I’ve seen almost every movie on Netflix. Though I don’t feel bad about that because I work hard and need my relaxing time.

I love dogs. Love love LOVE them. Pet all the dogs! Bring your dog to all our meetings!

My computer and desktop are super organised. Like color-coded and everything.
