February Meet-Ups

This year has started off with a roar for me!  From the looks of it, I’ll be on the road at least two days per week up till March. But what has hindered my planned blogging activities will enhance my opportunity to meet more of you in person in 2012.

For February I’ve scheduled two dates in two wonderful German cities where I’d like to invite anyone who’ll be in the area to come out for an impromptu meet-up:

  • Hamburg: 15 February from 12.30pm till 2.30pm (venue: tbd)
  • Cologne: 22 February from 7pm till 9pm (venue: tbd)

If you’d like to join me and whichever amazing women brave the cold for a few hours of good conversation, laughter and sisterhood, just click on the city of your choice and let me know you that you plan to attend. When I know how many women want to participate, I will decide the venue (recommendations are very welcome!) and – if necessary – book us all a table.

I’m looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible!

The Word of the Week*…

…is breakthrough!*


2: an act or instance of breaking through an obstacle

3: a sudden advance especially in knowledge or technique


It’s still the beginning of the New Year, ladies. A year that can just as easily be as full of opportunities and rewards as it can be of defeats and discouragement. By reminding ourselves what our last breakthrough felt like

  • physically
  • mentally and
  • spiritually

we can fine-tune ourselves to be prepared for all the doors just waiting to open up for us in 2012.

Here’s to being ready, ladies. Here’s to breaking through!

The Word of the Week*…

…is breathe!

4 : “to pause and rest before continuing”


[…]  re-focus your energies on your own Big Picture. Let your thoughts re-center themselves on the things which you can influence and change in your life, while also acknowledging that some things you simply can’t. Tap back into your own sense of peace and strength.

Then pick up your bundle and get back on the road!

A Quick Survey

I would like to find out more about how and why you listen to podcasts and/or internet radio. I’m currently designing a business model for a new portal that I’m extremely excited about, and want to take your current listening habits and desires into consideration right from the planning stage!

If you haven’t done so already, please take the time to answer a few questions on this quick survey.

Thanks in advance for your time and input!

The Word of the Week*…


transitive verb

: to join together into one whole :unite <consolidate several small school districts>

At the end of 2012:

  • What will you consider a mistake?
  • How will you – in retrospect – identify a missed opportunity?
  • When will you know you’ve laid the groundwork in order to take some important aspect of your life to the next level?
  • How will YOU know when you’ve succeeded?
