Coming originally from Denmark, she grew up in the Scandinavian countryside clambering around the hills and fjords happily, until moving to Paris for three years to live in the capital of romance and culture.
But now she calls the UK home and has been living in London since 1996.
Yep, we have adopted her as one our own.
And she has appeared to flourish whilst living in London, as her career went from strength to strength, as she worked hard on a career in Human Resources for companies such as Morgan Stanley, Citigroup and Shell.
But it is ok to have a career that is on the ascendency , well actually it’s a great thing, but when you have a career that is going well, but you want to do your own thing, then it can feel quite differently.
And our guest knew that her path was going to change
She had always wanted to start her own career change consultancy, so in 2005 did just that, and quit her well paid job to go it alone.
She walked away from the consistent monthly salary, and started flexing her hustle muscle on a daily basis.
And now as she says on her business site “I have a knack for quickly connecting with people and drawing them out thereby helping them understand how they can translate their unique personality, skills and interests into a career or business on their terms.
Combining my experience of career coaching over 500 clients, 8 years+ of owning my own business and a background in HR, I can offer you the practical know-how, motivation and confidence to actually make your career change or business idea happen!”
So lets find out how this Scandinavian lady came to leave the glorious Danish countryside, to live in the English Capital?
And does she see a need for more and more assistance to be offered to wannabe entrepreneurs nowadays, than compared to when she started back in 2005?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Rikke Hansen.
During the episode we discussed such weighty topics such as:
Why she believes that so many people spend more time looking around them for answers than within themselves.
How she feels that she isn’t different, nut more aware of who she should be….and that is a game changer.
How you need to create a crack in your life to allow the passion in. Otherwise it wont stand a chance of finding you.
Why Steve Jobs words are so true, and the world has become even more ziggy-zaggy than ever before.
“Live your life like everything around you is rigged” is a great way to achieve what you want in life.
