thank you & Welcome


We are two sisters from Amsterdam and whilst at the starting point of our careers, we often caught ourselves talking about "the 9-to-5 life". After talking to many people around us, we discovered there seem to be two camps; those pursuing a fulfilling life driven by passion, and those pursuing a career driven by external factors.

Why does the majority of us belong to the second camp?

What a shame for all those talents that remain undiscovered, dreams un-chased and ideas undeveloped. We believe that true success is waking up excited for the day ahead and falling asleep satisfied with the day gone by. 

Making a living and making a life are not two fundamentally different things.

We created this platform to inspire and motivate by sharing stories of people that have taken a leap of faith to build a fulfilling professional life. People with dreams and determination to find their path. People who are not afraid to take risks, fail, and get back up again. 

People just like you and us - not better, more talented or smarter. They just had the guts to follow their own path, and we share their tales to encourage you to do the same.

Are you ready? 

El & Steph
