10 THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT ME

Big things have small beginnings v2.PNG

Where do I start?

Writing everything down into notebooks and small pieces of paper just doesn't cut it anymore.

They say, "You gotta write!" They always said that. I wrote letters that made people cry. In a good way!

I don't want to bore you to tears either by talking about myself, so I added my life lessons/takeaways underneath each fact (in brackets)... see what I did there? ;)

Because if we wanna connect and work together, you'd like to see if we'd be a good match. Which means, you probably came here because you wanna know just a little more about me ...

In a few words… I’m told I’m hardworking, committed (if not obsessed) to the task at hand, I-do-what-I-say-I-do-approach, direct, deadly honest, dry sense of humour (the Irish kind, I LOVE it… kinda miss it actually ...). That’s me.

But there’s more…

10 things you may not know about me

#1: As a child in East Germany, Christmas was the most exciting time. It meant, we could buy Oranges and Bananas. ONE bag per family. Once a year! So, what did we do? Send each member of the family to the shop. (GASP!)

Lesson learned: You dig deep (and appreciate more) the things you can't always have. A little like launching an online course or a membership site.

#2: When I was 10, my mum died and I basically moved into the local library where I was exposed to countless books. Literally. And a typewriter(!). My aunty (foster mum) was a librarian. So, my lifelong LOVE for words comes with no surprise. (books helped me escape...) 

Today, I'm probably Book Depository's BEST customer. Because "Hellooo, FREE delivery worldwide!" I even dedicated an entire page on my website to my fave books.


#3: Once I was a contestant in an Irish reality TV show called "The Dinner Party". Two years later I got a job at the same TV station that had broadcast that show. I never told ANYONE, not even my boss. It was just too embarrassing!

Lesson learned: There's no such thing as making mistakes, because it always brings you on the path you're supposed to be on. TWEET THAT)

#4: One day I want to see Hollywood. The REAL one. In America. I found myself at the Irish version. Maybe I wasn't clear enough to the Universe.

Lesson learned: Always be clear and specific when asking for something. ;)


#5: Once upon a time I was a biker chick. My uncle owned the local biker shop, so I guess, that made me the IN-girl.  

Lesson learned: The most important friends are the genuine ones. TWEET THAT


#6: The proudest I've ever been was when I finished my studies of Journalism and Media Communications while working for the Irish TV broadcaster who made this possible.

Lesson learned: "Nothing is IMPOSSIBLE. The word itself says 'I'M POSSIBLE'." Audrey Hepburn." TWEET THAT

#7: I read the entire Harry Potter series 7 times. I admire J. K. Rowling for her determination, believe in her idea and just going for her dream. Inspiring!

Lesson learned: “If you THINK it and BELIEVE you can DO it. You really can!"

 


#8:
 Big Magic is my favourite (of ALL my favourites) non-fiction read about "creative living beyond fear". 

Lesson learned: It's a feel good read, so encouraging and makes you believe that anyone can write and be struck by inspiration. Anyone!


#9: Out of necessity and desperation due to a crashed website (built by an expensive web designer we hired), I had to teach myself to build a site. But that's another story.

Lesson learned: ANYTHING is possible when you're under pressure AND the best lessons are learned from the deep end of a no win situation. TWEET THAT

#10: Recently I discovered Yoga and mindfulness for myself. Now I can legitimately wear my Yoga pants all day long, every day. 

Food for thought: "Surrender to what is. Let go of what was. Have faith in what will be." - Sonia Ricotti TWEET THAT)

BONUS FACT: One of my favourite (goosebumps) song is Baz Luhrmann's sun screen song. A reminder of so many things and more. 

Enjoy!

And remember, "Worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum." - Mary Schmich, American Journalise TWEET THAT

That's a wrap!

I told you all this so you can see what I'm like and where I’m coming from. I hope we get to know each other more and more as time goes by.
