A ship in harbor is safe

BUT THAT’S NOT WHAT SHIPS ARE BUILT FOR”

(John A. Shedd)

I’m Anke Herrmann- dressmaker, teacher, mentor & coach. I support passionate creative souls who have the courage to “leave the harbor”.

Is That You?

What is your journey?

  • Starting a business doing what you love or taking your business to a new level?
  • Starting all over in your forties or fifties?
  • Moving to a different country?
  • Something else entirely that requires you to embrace uncertainty?

Whatever it is, the one thing that determines whether your endeavor will be successful is the way YOU show up: If you come from a place of fear, worry and self-doubt you’ll struggle, if you come from a place of calm focus and inspiration things just flow and you can achieve anything you set your mind to.

I can help you

  • get clear on your destination and the best route to take
  • discover and learn how to use the remarkable compass you already have inside of you
  • navigate the storms you’ll inevitably have to face
  • leave worry, stress, overwhelm, self-doubt and fear of the unknown behind, find the place of flow and inspiration inside you and enjoy the ride

Hi, I’m Anke Herrmann

Long Story Short ..

I’m originally from Germany and started my career as a translator. I didn’t last long, neither in Germany nor as a translator. I moved to Australia, later the UK and became a software developer. I enjoyed almost 10 fun years in IT until all projects got outsourced to India and project management was the only way forward in that industry.

 

Albaicin, Granada

So it was time to change tack again and in 2004 I decided to move to Granada in the south of Spain, by myself, with the idea of starting my own business as a dressmaker offering made to measure flamenco dance costumes. I had no idea really, neither about flamenco costumes nor about running a business. All I had was a love for sewing, a whole lot of enthusiasm and a way of seeing opportunity in uncertainty.

Not surprisingly, starting a business from scratch in a foreign country brought me close to throwing the towel on more than one occasion. The tough times were a blessing in disguise though .. they triggered my own journey of personal growth and eventually lead me “back to school” to become a coach so I could share what I’ve learnt and help others leave stress, worry and overwhelm behind to uncover their creativity, inspiration, resourcefulness and resilience, which really is what makes business (or any other) success not just possible but pretty much unavoidable 🙂

Let's Help Each Other

I'm doing some research for a new program I'm creating.

It is for creative entrepreneurs (designers, crafters, sewing professionals, artists, dancers, photographers etc.) who love the creative part of their business but find the "business side of things" - time management, marketing, dealing with clients, getting paid - way more stressful and exhausting than they expected.

 

Is that you?
