Online Business and Marketing Coach for mission-driven entrepreneurs

I’m here to help you thrive with the business you were designed to have

Before we talk about my story, let’s first talk about YOU.

If you’re here, you’re either:

  • A biz “newbie” who knows you have the potential but you’re still stumbling around to find the right strategy that feels right for you
  • An idea hamster with no structure in place
  • An entrepreneur that is currently stranded on a crossroad – where to go now? 
  • An experienced entrepreneur whose calling is to give something valuable to this world but how do you market that?
  • Or you are ready to scale but no idea what steps to take?

…then guess what?

I’m probably your business soul sister.

Hi, you can call me Steph!

If you’ve seen me around online you’d probably know that I’m a traveling entrepreneur. Pretty sweet life, right?

The thing is, I haven’t always had this lifestyle. In fact, my story starts in a lovely small town in Belgium. Straight out of college, I found myself teaching elementary students in another small town and while those inspiring kids did bring a smile on my face, I knew deep down that I dreamed of seeing and doing more. 

Fast forward to a few years later, this small-town girl from Belgium found herself selling everything she owned and hopped on a plane to pursue a life of travel and location independence as a freelance social media manager, marketing consultant and eventually, a business owner of a social media marketing agency.

Wait, wait.


So what does this have


anything to do with you?


A few fun facts about me

🎯 I’ve been in the marketing industry as a social media consultant for the past 4,5 years with some amazing companies 

🌱 I’ve been a vegetarian for 15 years now!

💕 I’m an empath and my Myers Briggs type is ENFJ 

🔮 I’m into manifesting, astrology and human design (Projector right here – I see you!).

✔️ I’m a certified Solution-focused Coach & Transformation Coach

📱I’m obsessed with IG Stories. (Nope, not shy about it 😂)

👯 I started a community of ladies in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with more than 2400 members and monthly live events

💻 I’ve been a full-time traveler for 4.5 years now aka a digital nomad

✈️ I started a travel blog Tourist Exclusive that is now known as an exclusive and luxury travel news website (my partner Peter is now the brains behind it)

🍫 I like anything sweet but don’t tell Peter as I’m supposed to be eating healthier 😎

Like you, I know what it’s like to start my own business(es).

At a young age, I’ve always had this entrepreneurial drive. In fact, I’m someone you may consider as a serial entrepreneur! 

From running an events company and managing +100 people at a raging festival to starting my travel website (Tourist Exclusive) to managing a location-independent social media agency, I’ve juggled multiple businesses and I can’t seem to get off from the excitement! 

And as someone who has a hundred ideas in her head (and a thousand things on her to-do list), I also know that running your own business isn’t all rainbows and sunshine.

But the best thing about business? There’s no single official answer!

Now, you may be a newbie when it comes to launching a business, doe-eyed with all the possibilities at your fingertips. Maybe you’re also a serial entrepreneur but can’t settle down with just one plan. I understand your challenges and probably will get what you want to say with just one word. 

Here’s the thing…

You can’t copy/paste a marketing strategy and hope that it’s a one-way street to success. You can’t implement all the must-haves the gurus talk about. It won’t work! You need a custom approach that works for YOU—based on YOUR STRENGTHS! 

And that’s why I’m here. With the +4 years of online marketing experience, I bring to the table, I’ve witnessed and personally experienced the ins and outs of running an online business but also what it means doing things YOUR way.

The difference between me and you?

I didn’t have the proper guidance and support back then and it took me more time to get the hang of it. I went from over-excited about my social media agency to burned out on the verge of giving up my freedom lifestyle. I didn’t have the freedom I set out to find. I spend more time procrastinating than working on my goals. 

I won’t let that happen to you. And since being able to guide and support others is what drives me to wake up and get to my laptop every single day, I thought “Why not revisit Teacher Stephanie 2.0?”

When I started a coaching certification everything clicked. I am meant to help others choose flow over stress. I am here to share that life and business can be different than what you’ve seen/heard so far, that your marketing strategy is based on you & the personality of your audience.

Now I teach and guide entrepreneurs like yourself gain clarity on what they need—an authentic and effective strategy tailor-made for your business and brand.

My mission

Though effective strategy is important, I’d like to go beyond that. The tips and tricks you find online can only go so far. For your business to set off, your strategy and business should be something that you’re eager to work on from the moment you wake up. 

That’s why I want to help creative entrepreneurs like you create a business strategy that converts and feels right.

I want to help you focus on flow over hustle.
I want to help you take your strengths into account, along with the things I personally learned over the years, and guide you in implementing it for your business.
