How long have you been doing what you do and how did you get to be an Executive Life & Business Coach?
To answer this question, it’s probably best that I share with you a defining moment and a resulting ‘compelling story that brought me to where I’m today, coaching people like you to open their hearts, discover their true identity + potential, build a strong self-confidence, take their place and find their drive to play a bigger game, without any hesitation.
I was always interested in what makes people really successful and truly happy. For a long time in my early life, I thought that this is a good education, a good job, a good salary and a high status. Since I’m educated in a culture (in North Macedonia, a little country in the South of Europe) where the social control is very high and belonging to the family and the group is very important, as well as the success symbols from outside, I became very good at fulfilling people’s expectations and achieving those symbols (good education, good salary, high status, respected job…) to feel worthy of Love.
After finishing my university degree (in economics) I started working for a huge international bank that just started its operations in Macedonia from scratch. I worked 24/7 and was fully devoted to my job, which brought me management functions. Then I thought I was happy and successful since I got a lot of acknowledgment and admiration, from outside. But, as I grew further in the hierarchy of the bank, I noticed that the management ruled top-down, based on fear, pressure, humiliation, and threats. Then I felt deeply that these are not my values. This is not my way of living and communicating. There has to be something more in life.
Fortunately, I’ve found the strength, confidence, and courage in myself to transform this fear and pressure from above into love, true understanding, and warm support for my employees. Because I believe in love, respect, justice, true service, and the good in people. As my team felt supported and encouraged, we became very successful, achieving consequently the business plans with more than 100 %. Then I became aware that I wanted to contribute to a greater purpose in my life and make a higher impact in the world. But I didn’t know how yet.
My answer came through the love of my life. After years without a relationship, I longed for a man who has a big heart for people and has the qualities in him that suit my character and soul.
In 2007 I met my Dutch husband Ton Creemers. A brilliant man with unique psychological knowledge. He was already an experienced Senior Coach and Business Advisor who guided people and organizations in all aspects of human development. With speed and quality, I’ve never seen before, Ton was able to put into words what I already automatically did in my way of guiding people in my work. Our frequencies matched immediately. And we fell in love.
It took me 2 years to gather the courage to decide to give up the life I’ve built up, to choose for the love I felt for Ton, and to start completely from scratch together with him in The Netherlands.
During this time I discovered the power of coaching. I had an epiphany. By witnessing the transformations of our clients and the strength and the possibilities which were released as a result, I knew that coaching is my thing. This is my mission!
Since then I committed to immersing myself in absolutely everything that had to do with cleaning up the obstacles that are hindering the personal growth and well-being of people and helping them to fully take their place and spread their wings wide open.
I worked with Ton shoulder-to-shoulder for 7 years. During this time I’ve learned the psychological background of peoples’ characters, behaviors, and ways of communication as well as which patterns hinder our human development, how to let go of the things that don’t serve us, and how to learn new behaviors and implement structures that promote true happiness, progress, and joy in life. Ton helped me also to understand the spiritual laws of life (which I unconsciously tried to live by), how these work, and how to implement them on a much deeper level in my life.
In 2014 I started for myself. Since then I committed to dedicating the rest of my professional life to helping people who unconsciously keep themselves small to close their energy leaks, overcome inner conflicts, discover their true identity, embrace their greatness and protect and promote their health and well-being so that they can win at their life and bring out the best of their potential, relationships and work.
Because no one has to hold back! You have talents and qualities within you that you need to develop and put into service to others and the world. Then you serve yourself, your family, and your environment at your best. If you fail to find your sphere of usefulness, that will lead to frustrations and ailments, as well as failure to succeed in other aspects of life. At least, not to the fullest of what you are capable of accomplishing.
But if you embrace your talents with all your heart, then you’ll become unstoppable! If you dare to open up and truly connect to your heart, then you will rise to the top! And all your relationships will flourish.
I promise you this!
Who are your clients exactly?
My clients are very intelligent high achievers, entrepreneurs, spiritual people who want to make an impact, individuals and sometimes couples, honest, hardworking, sensitive people with big pure hearts who are searching beyond the surface as they want to understand life and themselves deeper.
They are eager to learn, want to take personal responsibility for their successes and have a true desire to contribute to a higher purpose. They have a profession, a calling, or a mission and feel that they have so much to give to others, only they don’t know yet how to do this the right way.
Namely, they haven’t discovered yet the human knowledge and how the spiritual laws of life work, and therefore they lose energy in extra hard-working, pleasing, giving themselves 300 %, taking too many responsibilities, and they end up feeling guilty, overwhelmed, living in a hurry, feeling not enough or not loved and often not well understood and acknowledged by their surroundings.
They don’t know yet that there is nothing wrong with them. But there is something that gets in the way.
What happens if you haven’t yet worked with people in my field?
I’ve worked with various people: from teachers, educators, and yoga docents to business owners and project managers, from business consultants and coaches to sales and financial people, health practitioners, virtual assistants, IT people, and graphic designers. They are all very good at their profession. What they all need to discover is human knowledge (the psychological, emotional, and communicational patterns as well as their leadership and relationship skills) and how to use this to their advantage.
Suppose I haven’t worked with someone in your profession, that can be your advantage. Because human knowledge is universal and we people have the same human needs in the essence.
What my current and former clients have found exceedingly helpful is that I bring an extremely fresh perspective to their life situations and help them find resources they’d never thought they could use.
How are you different from other “life and business coaches?”
What sets me apart from other coaches is my rich business background in combination with my deep knowledge of human nature and my unique ability to see, understand and encourage you in your unique situation and your strengths and longings. With my help, you will lovingly let go of things that don’t serve you and you will embrace your true identity with confidence and joy.
And you’ll integrate all the parts of yourself you didn’t know you had yet. Because when these are reclaimed, your entire Life integrates, from the inside out! As a result, you develop Self-Confidence, Positive Will, and Strong Self-Esteem to create your life on your terms, with laser focus, and without any hesitation!
In doing so, you develop a positive relationship with yourself and become a source of happiness, love and light for everyone around you!
What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?
My workshops, products, and programs are created for people who are excited and deadly serious about getting the best out of their life, relationships and work and ending what I call the cycle of “waiting, holding in, and playing small in their life”.
They are created for you to recognize, accept and close your energy leaks step by step, learn effective communication skills, and set clear borders, which will protect you and help you to show up in a bigger way in your life and take decisive actions consistently towards your goals and dreams.
Being a high-achieving go-getter myself, I’m known to work best with other high-achieving go-getters, who don’t settle for anything less than what they can create, experience, and be(come) and who are super-ready to get going and just want to know exactly what steps to take to move forward.
Consider what you’ll do with me to be an action learning course in little steps and with Joy. You will be expected to take serious and consistent action. And I’ll be there to support you every step of the way.
For what type of person is this program (coaching) NOT going to work?
Please know I’m very selective in who I work with and I cherry-pick my clients, choosing to (gently) turn away people who aren’t suited for my programs and won’t get the results for which they would have signed up (It wouldn’t be fair to them).
My coaching doesn’t work for people who are not coachable. Some people are not searching for improvement, they are satisfied with life as it comes and goes and they are not receivable for new insights and ideas. Some people expect that the coach will do their work for them as they don’t take personal responsibility. This is not realistic. As a coach, I can give you the knowledge and advice, but you need to have the will to implement them. Otherwise, the coaching will NOT work.
“Working together means working together based on free will and equality, in the understanding of the mutual dependency.” – Abbas Effendi
Coaching won’t work for people who see coaching as a cost and not as an investment in themselves. If a coaching effort, time, or fee is considered a cost, the coachee will avoid it, delay it, or reduce the effort and the time allotted to it. And there will be no results. However, if it is considered an investment, the coachee will be careful in how the effort, time, or fee is utilized. There is an expectation of returns, the actual returns are compared with the planned returns and appropriate steps are taken to maximize returns.
Another type of person I won’t work with (without exception) is the whiner or the chronic skeptic, as well as individuals who consistently make excuses for not getting their assignments done or challenging every aspect of the program. If you are one of these people, I gently and respectfully ask that you not call and I hope you understand why. We’ll probably just not work well together and I wouldn’t want you to waste your time or money. Is that fair?
What exactly is The Embrace Your Heart™ program and what does it include?
The Embrace Your Heart™ program is fully focused on closing your energy leaks and becoming free from the systems and structures imposed by your culture or upbringing so that you can connect to your true identity, set clear borders, build strong self-esteem and focus on creating your life on your terms.
It is an interactive online year program that endures 12 months. Every module includes 1, 2, or 3 lessons and worksheets which naturally build on each other so that you can easily and joyfully move forward.
Here are the modules:
- Discover the spiritual laws of the Universe.
- Build and maintain strong physical health and vitality.
Does this work?
YES, it does, it’s transformational and life-changing! (See Client Success Stories! )
What results can I expect?
YOU’LL GET BIGGER THAN YOUR CHALLENGES
- Life will always continue to challenge you because life never stands still and wants you to develop and become more powerful. So, you will discover how to manage your life challenges for the benefit of your well-being and the well-being of your loved ones.
- By increasing your self-esteem you develop more soul mass. You become More… When you become more, you can have, dissolve, give, enjoy and be MORE!
- You save time, energy, regret, and a lot of struggle. You enrich your life with more: love, joy, compassion, peace and space, conscious choices based on knowledge, certainty, freedom, productivity, playfulness, fulfillment, and aliveness.
- You get a better life-work balance, increased confidence, and removed challenges and blockages to success!
- You’ll know how to set healthy borders and protect your well-being and your psychological and physical health.
- You develop clarity and vision about what’s important to you in your life and set strong standards to achieve this.
- As you get to understand and know yourself better, you’ll see and understand others better. As a result, your worldview will increase.
- You make a positive impact: as you lead by example in your own life, you’ll have a positive influence on the lives of your loved ones and the lives of the other people around you.
- As a result, your relationships will transform and improve. You’ll start attracting the right people who belong to you and the ones who care about you will see you and appreciate you more. You need first to see yourself, for others to see YOU. Then people are attracted to the real YOU and not to someone who pretends to be YOU.
When you permit yourself to live your best life, you unconsciously pass that on to the people around you. Then you become an example and lead by deeds. Then you are like a magnet for others who only want to be around you.
- THEN the magic begins! This is where a lot of energy becomes free. And the real joy happens! You’ll experience life as a challenge, being unshakable while riding on the waves of life and enjoying the dance with the unknown that comes your way.
Can I contact some of your former clients to see what it’s like to work with you?
Yes, I encourage you to! Please go to the Success Stories page and read all of them. See which ones you feel drawn to, either because the person has gotten the results you want to get, or perhaps because that person is in a similar profession. Then feel free to email or call them and ask what they got from working with me and my programs.
How quickly can I expect results?
This depends on where you are now and how much you put into the assignments that we give you. That said, virtually all clients see results within the first couple of months in the form of more energy, more aliveness, more creativity, more joy, a clear vision and a strong willingness to move forward.
How can I guarantee myself that I will get the results, in record time?
Understand that it’s not a “quick fix,” it’s not magic and it takes up to a year for you to plant all the seeds and for those seeds to grow into the fruit that you can enjoy.
Will I recover the investment I put into this coaching program?
Yes, a resounding Yes! Many clients are excited to report that they were able to cover their investments many times. Because in life you attract what you are. And if you want more, you need to become more.
What you’re regularly getting with this program (and my coaching) is what I call a series of PINGs or AHAs! These will move you faster forward than you would on your own. Expect to get a lot of these as well as the resources you’ve been looking for and haven’t found until now.
How long is the program?
The program has 12 modules. You can do these at your tempo. It takes up to 12 months to integrate the new insights into your system so that you can act automatically.
OK, I know what I want. How do we get started?
Great! Did you know that one of the most prominent characteristics of successful people is that they take action? They take educated risks, are decisive, take action, and move forward toward success faster as a direct result of this. It’s a well-known fact that these people make decisions based on their gut instinct. So, that being said, if this feels right for you, then go for it.
