The biggest mistake I made in my career so far…


❌ Assuming that if I just did a good job, I would automatically get the next project/promotion
❌ Assuming that people would know what they could hire me for
❌ Assuming that they knew that I was available for or interested in a project
❌ Assuming that if something didn’t happen after one attempt, that it just wasn’t for me
❌ Assuming that I wasn’t allowed to make mistakes
❌ Assuming that I had to know it all
❌ Assuming that I had nothing interesting to share with the world

And so many more wrong assumptions…..

What changed?

I stopped assuming.

Yes, it’s as simple as that.
Stop assuming, start taking action😅

When I started converting these assumptions into actual actions, so much changed!
In the past months I for example worked on the FIFA World Cup, as a UEFA Venue Director, as an Expert of the UEFA Assist Programme, as a coach & trainer for my private clients ánd I have my inspiration platform & community KICK-ES.

My advice for you:

✅ Start being visible, show yourself
✅ Share your goals & ambitions with your network
✅ Raise your hand; let people know you are looking/available🙋‍♀️
✅ Consistency is key, take little steps towards your goal
✅ Allow yourself to f̵a̵i̵l̵ learn
✅ Share your story….if you can inspire one person, it’s already worth it💖

Do you want to get better at this and learn from my mistakes ánd best practices?
Then I am happy to announce the two Masterclasses I am organising (and no, I am not assuming you already know about it😉):

▶️ Connecting with Confidence on Monday 27/2 at 20:00 CET
▶️ Personal Branding on Thursday 2/3 at 20:00 CET

If you cannot attend live you will receive the replays.
