#ADATEWITH / MEET MY MADE-COACH YVONNE BERKIEN

POSE-made-coach-1
My name is Linsey and I don't want to be made in a prom Queen or cheerleader, I want to be
made in a self confident business woman! And no, this is not in collaboration with MTV, but
with YB Motive. Meet my made-coach Yvonne Berkien! She is an executive coach, specialized in
business, career and cross-culture coaching. So that means, wherever you are on the planet, you can
be coached by Miss Berkien whenever you want. Face to face, by Skype or even by phone.

I met Yvonne at our weekly kick box training, where we punch each other in the face sometimes
(kidding, of course). Don't be judged by this lady's appearance because, trust me, she can be
 spicy (and funny)! Her main goal to you is: BE POSITIVE & KEEP ON SHINING.

And this is my experience with my made-coach Yvonne

 Day 1: THE EYE OPENER
To be honest, I didn't had a clue what to expect from a coaching session. So Yvonne explained me
directly: 'I can make your weakest points better and your strongest even more stronger'.  I'm not
easily surprised, but my first session with Yvonne was an eye opener!

 Day 2: WHAT THE...?
Then this happened: my "what-the-f*ck-am-I-doing?!" moment. Setting goals is such an important
thing to do, but realizing you're going the wrong way is a disaster. Yvonne, HELP ME!

 Day 3: BOOM! A SLAP IN DA FACE!
The hardest session, but also the most important one. This just has to happen: realizing I was putting
my energy in the wrong things to reach my goals. I was totally in shock. "Was I doing it wrong the
whole time? Why didn't I see this?!".

 Day 4: THE EMO BREAKDOWN DAY
Confrontation day. Or better said: emotional breakdown day. The session where you're at your
weakest and lowest point after last time's session and still in shock and lost. But after the shock
it's time to really face the problems and do something about.

 Day 5: TAKING 10 STEPS FORWARD
Done with the emo break, let's go! You can see your goals getting closer again! Face your fears
because you're ready for it. This is the moment you really have to believe in yourself. I did and
great things happened.

 Day 6: TIME FOR STRUCTURE
Structure, structure, sctructure! Because who has time for chaotic sh*t?! If your head is cleared,
there's space for way better thoughts and you can focus a lot better.

 Day 7: WTF, I'M CHASING MY DREAMS?!
Is this even happening?! A (business) dream came true! I went to New York and Paris Fashion Week!
So hard work defenitely pays off. Reaching goals is getting addictive!

 Day 8: MY NAME IS LINSEY AND I'M A SELF CONFIDENCE BUSINESS WOMAN!
Thé day where you look back to where you started and what you've become right now. If you told me
6 months ago I was going to be a strong, self confidence business woman, I would have laughed.
But I reached my goal and now it's time to kick some *ss!

Yvonne's 3 ultimate secret tips personally for you:

1. FIGHT & FOCUS TO BECOME NR. 1
Find your drive through your passion. I can guide you to be unique and be a success: yvonne@ybmotive.nl ;)

2. IDENTIFY 5 GOALS YOU'RE GONNA ACHIEVE AS IT HAS ALREADY COME TRUE
These were the goals I received from Linsey: 1. Be confident business wise - 2. Aiming my blog as
my only full-time job - 3. To start a successful career in the fashion industry - 4. Find the perfect
life/work balans - 5. To increase my financial target by blogging

3. CHALLENGE YOURSELF BY ASKING HONESTLY "WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY?"
DARE TO FACE THE TRUTH
This was Linsey's biggest challenge, where she struggled with a lot. She was afraid to face the
 reality, but at the end it only made her stronger and achieved her goal of being a confident
business woman.
