Hi there, I’m Sandra.
If you’re here, chances are you’re looking for something.
You’re looking for a way out of this life you’ve been trying to fit in for years, only to end up feeling a bit more miserable each day.
You’re looking for a solution to this pain you feel on a daily basis, a solution to this loneliness and feeling that you don’t belong.
You’re looking for an answer to the question “why am I here for?” because you know, you feel it deep down, and you felt it most of your life, that there is more to life than these 9-5 jobs.
Well, all I can say is that I feel you. You see, I spent most of my life trying to fit in. As far as I can remember. I was born in the south of France and when I was a month old, my mother and I flew to Africa where my dad was working. I grew up changing country every one, two, three years, mainly between Africa and Middle-East. When I was 15, we moved back to France in the middle of the year, just after the winter holidays. I found myself moving from Kenya where my life was around being in nature, my chameleon was my pet and my favorite song was “Hakuna Matata” (you know, the one from the Lion King… only the original one), to a life surrounded by kids who spoke a teen language I could barely understand, a life in which the brand of your bag was more important than the person you were… and the list could go on. It was a profound cultural shock to me and from there on, I don’t really remember feeling truly happy.
For the past twenty years, I’ve been trying to fit in. I had a very traditional education and always felt like I didn’t belong. I felt like an alien within my family, and the environment I was in. I dealt with anorexia, bulimia, and depression in my early twenties. I got out of it on my own, stepping away from western medicine as their pills and doctors were more harmful to me than anything else. That’s where my passion for natural health and preventive medicine began.
On the career side, I’ve changed jobs I don’t know how many times. I mainly worked in finance. Started in auditing which I hated, and then moved on to financial controlling which I’ve been doing for the past 5 years in Switzerland. During this time, I tried to get out of corporate a few times. I was studying on the side with the goal to then start my own business but something was wrong, it wasn’t really what I wanted so I would end up going back to corporate. Over the years I had a burn-out, chronic pain and this feeling of constant sadness, emptiness and being useless. I knew there was more to this life than that but I couldn’t figure out what to do with that.
In December 2017, I went through a major breakdown. I got to the point where it was either I gave up on my life or I had to go for my dream and become self-employed. For some reason, I chose to go for it. I had so many fears and limiting beliefs but the level of pain I had reached became stronger than the fear I had that had held me back all these years.
So I quit. I quit everything. The job, the relationship I was in which wasn’t working anyway, and the country. I knew if I’d stay in Switzerland I would be tempted to go back to corporate. So I did what Tony Robbins says: “If you want to take the island, burn the boat”. No plan B.
I spent a year trying to figure out what I wanted to do. I started working on myself daily, I enrolled to a few online programs which ended up to be not the right fit for me. I hired a business coach who turned out to be a total scam. This past year has been painful. Because I had to face my fears, I had to peel off the layers in order to get to who I truly am so that I was able to know what I truly wanted. I always knew what I wanted, I just wasn’t able to express it because I was scared.
When I came across this community, it was like finding home in a way. For the first time in my life, I was listening to someone who was making sense to me. For the first time in my life, I started to see a group of people in which I would be accepted for who I truly was. And most importantly, I would get all I needed to build this life I’ve always wanted. A life where I am free to decide for myself, a life where I wake up every morning knowing why I do what I do, a life where being myself is all that matters.
Now that you know a bit more about me, I want to be very clear with you. I’ve tried enough of these online programs that there is out there, I’ve met enough of these fake people to know that there is, according to me, a lot of scam online.
If you’re looking for someone telling you that you’re going to be able to make money overnight, that it’ll be easy and that you can just do a few things here and there to get it, that’s not me, nor is what this community is about.
If, on the other hand, you’re looking for a change, a real change in your life, a change that will last a lifetime, if you’re willing to put in the work (meaning invest in yourself in regards with time and money) and to commit to it, then this may be for you.
I’ve tried too long to do all this by myself and I now know that it’s not possible. I also know that to succeed (to me, success means living a fulfilled life) I need to surround myself with like-minded people. That’s what this community is all about, supporting each other in this journey.
So now, I believe the question you need to ask yourself is are you willing to make the jump and go for it? Are you willing to get the help and support you need in order to achieve your goal and build this life you so deserve to live, a life where being yourself and dream big is finally allowed?
