Break Out: Pivoting brain & business in times of corona – an entrepreneur’s story (part of Reinvent Yourself track) – Blooming Stories

July 2, 17:30 - 18:30

Iris is a coach and trainer with a background in psychology. She’s obsessed with personal development, and her mission is to let others thrive. She started her entrepreneurial adventure while being pregnant with her second child, but pursued her dream anyway. After her own coaching practice, a coach- and training location in the centre of Rotterdam soon followed. The pandemic hit her businesses hard, with a 95% cancellation on all bookings and drop in revenue of almost 75%.

During the intelligent lockdown she successfully created two new revenue streams and managed to find a new business partner to work with. This pivot was not made out of fear, but created out of a place of feeling in control.

Being a trainer and educator on exactly these topics, she wants to share her vision on taking control in uncertain times, and teach you how to do this in your own lives. Whether is is something big like pivoting your business or smaller, daily no longer feeling utterly frustrated when the toiletpaper is out of stock, there is a big difference in doing so out of automatic behaviour to manage your negative feelings, of to take control and make conscious decisions.
