Hi, I’m Nadine Nelen
Experienced Professional and Business Owner
I worked for 33 years in a variety of different companies, among them smaller shipping companies, an international flavour corporation, and a world-renowned North American conglomerate. During this time I held various roles in sales, marketing, mid-level management, and leadership. I experienced first-hand the stress of continuously travelling, managing competing deadlines, meeting targets, dealing with difficult colleagues and having to hire and fire people. I bring the same strategic skills to my own business where I help other professional women see both the big picture and the practical aspects of moving forward. The experience I had as a professional woman helps me both empathise with and provide practical, no-nonsense solutions to clients in the work I do today. In addition to my corporate experience, I have an extensive background as a founder and owner of several different businesses. I’ve experienced the ups and downs of entrepreneurship, and several times have re-invented myself, my business and my life in response to challenges. Now, I translate those skills into my work with clients every day. I am able to assess where my clients are in their own professional and personal lives, offer them clarity, and help them make a plan to move forward.
Certified Healer, Reiki Master and Psychic Reader
I’ve been certified in Touch for Awareness and in Aura and Chakra Healing and have been helping clients find clarity, healing and a path forward using these skills starting in 1998. I later trained to become a Master in Reiki in the Usui Shiki Ryoho system. In addition, I also have studied and trained to use the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), also known as tapping, to help reduce stress levels, achieve inner peace, create more abundance, open up to love and deal with pain and healing issues. I’ve also been certified in the Money Breakthrough Method® to help clients create and sustain financial abundance. I’ve mentored people to create a new life closer to their soul’s calling. I’ve been doing this full-time now since 2016 and brought clarity to hundreds of people through different sessions.
For most of my life, I worked in jobs that were challenging and came with high stress. I was addicted to the stress. It made me feel like I was doing something important, ploughing through 400 emails a day, always on the road or in the air. There was never a day when I was not available for the hustle and bustle of my job. But in truth, I was seeking more. I knew I had to make a change. When I finally let go of what I thought my life was supposed to look like, I started to live my life from my heart and my soul, and so much changed. My health became better, I got married, and I moved to an acreage not far from the sea. Finally, I had time and could allow things to come to me instead of my doing it all the time and being exhausted. I always had inspiring mentors on my path less travelled and they helped me in difficult times. I knew that one day I would be doing the same. Now, I care about you and want to help you find a way out of the rat race, out of the overwhelm and suffering and into a place where you have the time to do the things you are meant to be doing, allowing more love to flow into your life.
Some More About Me
I speak several languages. My linguistic skills as well as my non-verbal communication experience are enriched through my work with autistic adults. Once I finally decided to write a book it took about a year to find the right time and place and learned how to write from the right brain. After that, the book just flowed out. My first book “YES, I do & I did it” is the story of how I grew up in Europe and one day decided to create the life of my dreams far, far away. I tell about my struggles, heartbreaks and limiting beliefs I had to overcome to make migrating to the other side of the world and creating my dream life possible. I live on acreage not very far from the sea. There, I have a horse, dogs, alpacas and chickens. When I’m not working, I love spending time with Romeo, my paint horse. I also love to watch the wild birds and just hang out near my pool while I connect to nature all around me. I attended art school for over ten years, and I’m always drawing something or other. Lately I’ve rekindled my passion for drawing animal portraits and have done some commissions. In winter, I crochet, mostly handbags… or the occasional scarf.
