Meet Angelique von Loebbecke!
Q. Can you tell me a bit about your business?
A. I am an energy healer and transformation coach: I empower empaths to detach from their story and to rise to their full potential by honing their gifts.
Q. What is your favorite thing about being self-employed?
A. Not having a boss and working on my own terms. Taking off when I want to and starting my working day not before 11:30 am. My clients are spread all over the world so my day can be long - I take the morning hours for myself to indulge in self care, play with my dog, or do “nothing.”
Q. What is the most challenging aspect of your business?
A. Isolation. I have to make sure that I do not spend all day every day on my phone and laptop. Being an entrepreneur you can ALWAYS find something to do, research, or learn.
Q. If you had to start your business over from scratch today, what would be your top three priorities?
A. 1. Seeking out and connecting to like minded people 2. Listening to my intuition more 3. Scheduling in play time
Q. Do you travel frequently while maintaining your business?
A. Yes. My husband and I both have huge families and friends all over the place. He is an entrepreneur himself with a local company so we will travel when he wants some time off.
Q. Are there any tools or resources that allow you to work from anywhere that you would recommend to other entrepreneurs?
A. Not other than the usual ones like Skype, Facebook messenger, and Paypal. I love vCita for scheduling and engagement, though I might switch to Satori someday.
Q. What has been your favorite destination so far?
A. The Maldives
Angelique in the Maldives
Q. How does traveling enhance your current business?
A. I like the freedom of being locally independent. I can take opportunities quickly and like to meet with people when I travel. It broadens my point of view and I am very grateful that I have the ability and freedom to work internationally on my own terms.
Q. What advice do you have for people who want to travel while they work?
A. Stay grounded amidst the chaos. Schedule work and play times, if you don’t then it is often not worth being somewhere else. Outsource everything you can and want to.
