10 THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT ME

Big things have small beginnings v2.PNG

Where do I start?

Writing everything down into diaries & pieces of paper (& hiding it in random drawers all over the house) just doesn't cut it anymore.

They say, "You gotta write!" They always said that. I wrote letters that made people cry. Not that I wanna make YOU cry! FAR from it actually ...

I don't wanna bore you to tears either by talking about myself, so I added my (life) lessons/takeaways/nuggets underneath each fact (in brackets). ;)

Because if we wanna connect & 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 ... so, you know what you're getting yourself into ...

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 (LOVE the Irish sense of humour - kinda miss it actually ...).

So, let's start with what you clicked for ...

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 & 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 (& appreciate more) the things you can't always have. A little like launching a FREE mini-course or an online course or a membership site ... wink, wink.

#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 (aka 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. Never told ANYONE, not even my boss. Too (hide-me-under-the-table) 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 of Hollywood. Maybe I wasn't clear enough to the Universe.

Lesson learned: Always be clear & 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 are the genuine ones. TWEET THAT


#6: The proudest I've ever been was when I finished my studies of Journalism & 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, & just going for her dream. Inspiring!

Lesson learned: If you THINK it & 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 & makes you believe that anyone can write & be struck by inspiration. Anyone!



#9: Out of necessity, desperation & a crashed website on the single most important day of my husband's website launch (400 fliers where sent out), I had to teach myself to create a website. Over night. Literally! 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 & mindfulness for myself. Now I can legitimately wear my Yoga pants all day long, every day ... bliss! 

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

BONUS FACT: My all time favourite (goosebumps & tears) song has to be Baz Luhrmann's sun screen song. A reminder of so many things & 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

Aaand that's a wrap!

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