Hey there, nice to meet you!

I'm Lin (...that's short for Linnet)

I’m a Personal Development Coach, Mentor and Trainer.

I spent a lot of my life believing that success would make me happy. Instead, I ended up chronically stressed and unhappy. That just didn’t seem fair, so I went looking for answers and I loved what I found out.
 
I learned that being both successful & happy is absolutely possible when we look for the answers inside. We always have choices, but we don’t always see them at first.
 
That’s why I absolutely love working as a coach, helping my clients feel good about themselves while they successfully pursue their ambitions in life!

My Background

Before I became a Coach I worked in Project Management and HR for different international companies. I was ambitious and good at my job and so I got promoted into leadership positions while I was still quite young.

But I had a love-hate relationship with my job most of the time.

While I loved working with my clients, I also noticed I was getting more and more anxious. The workload was high and I was always trying to think 2 steps ahead to avoid problems. 

At some stage, I wasn’t really able to switch off anymore. I was checking emails at all hours and got calls from the office even when I was on vacation or in hospital. I was stressed most of the time and I even had trouble sleeping at night.

This wasn’t just affecting me, but also my friends and family.

Eventually, I realised that something had to change. 

I wanted to be successful because I thought it would make me happy. So why wasn’t I happy?

I spent a lot of time looking for tools to help me cope better and I fell in love with coaching. I worked with coaches and read everything on the topic that I could get my hands on.

I learned to look inside myself for answers rather than trying to manage everyone and everything else on the outside.

I realised I had a lot more choices than I thought and was able to make the changes that helped me feel a lot better.

I was so fascinated by what I discovered that I kept digging deeper into what it was that was driving us and how we could influence our own life experience.

My big leap of faith was when I left my day-job to do a full-time Coaching Certification Course and go into business for myself. 

Nowadays, I feel like a different person. I’m always running around with a book in my bag, eager to share the latest things that I learned. I have dreams and I have goals and I’m obsessed with all things personal development.

I live in Germany, but I spent almost 10 years in Ireland where I went to school and university and I’ve always loved working in an international environment. Because of that, I do most of my work in English, but I also love working with my German-speaking clients.

I still firmly believe that it’s a reasonable expectation to have a career and be happy.

After all, when you work hard you deserve to feel good! 🙂

Most of all: I love seeing people thrive & succeed after they’ve worked with me.

My wish is for you to find something here, that will get you ahead in your life, too!
I’d love to work with you!
