As a professional project manager I have lead thousands of meetings. Taking part in yet another ‘meeting’ did not sound that exciting.
I met with one other person. We attended the same online course together on how to set up a business and we wanted to support each other.
Imagine my surprise when after our first meeting I felt a new burst of energy and I could not wait to take action on my business goals.
Being rather cautious, I put this excitement down to novelty.
Then we met again. We now knew each other better and the ideas just came flying through the ether towards us out of thin air. I felt so inspired that I became hooked on this concept of the Mastermind.
It is the group mind that is activated when people come together in harmony and toss ideas and solutions around. Ideas appear that no-one had previously thought of. I’m sure you have felt this before and know what a high energy experience that can be.
Now, to be honest, my first Mastermind partnership didn’t survive very long. We were not a Mastermind match made in heaven at the time: she had a brick ‘n mortar type of business and I wanted to set up a location independent business; she was way ahead in her business and I was just starting out. As you can see we didn’t really have that much in common.
After more research and trial and error, I recognized that by bringing together my team creation skills, my ability to keep meetings focused and combining these with the concept of Masterminds I had a winning formula. I started out by developing a platform called the Mastermind Hub which is currently only open to my clients. Here entrepreneurs create a very targeted profile that allows them to easily identify and connect with others to form a Mastermind with a solid foundation.
If you are interested in setting up your own Mastermind my free 5 day email course will provide you with all the information you will need to do so successfully. You can access the course here.
Even though I have extensive experience in delivering projects and getting things done, I struggled in the beginning when I started working on my own.
I did not have a team around me that helped me with their speed of delivery and expertise. I also did not know what to focus on as I was pulled in all directions. In my interactions with other business owners I realized this is a common issue.
To overcome this problem for myself I developed a unique productivity system that helped me get work done, given the challenges that solo-entrepreneurs face. It worked so well for me that I decided to create a program around it. It is a methodology that helps business owners find their own productivity cycles based on their specific time availability and work requirements. This is how Your Most Productive Season came into being.

We don’t require a revolution, no major catastrophe to achieve this – all we need are a few subtle changes that lead us in the direction of our envisioned life.
It starts with living an intentional life. It is a new path emerging for humanity which is still being carved out. It is an individual journey and at the same time let us join with others walking along side us.
My vision is to create a world where every person feels empowered to live a self-directed life of freedom and financial independence. Yes, this is a super big dream and I believe if we team up together with people who have a similar vision we can indeed impact and change our world.
This is how my passion for Masterminds came about. I’m also very organized and love figuring out new ways of creating a lifestyle that allows me to express all of my talents – my creativity and intuition as well as my love for systems and structure. I have taken this talent to help others achieve their dreams.
I have a varied background on the career front: from studying architecture and setting up a fashion design studio to managing technical systems implementations in large organizations. As an entrepreneur I enjoy combining all my skills in birthing my many ideas into reality.
I consider myself a global citizen: things get complicated when you are a South African by birth, a German national, and residing in New Zealand.
