I can't believe it has already been 3 years since I've started my business, Hielema Coaching! Time flies!! Ohh, it has been a very enriching experience both personal and professional with significant success but also a number of failures (read: learning lessons where I was out of alignment,...

As you know I'm a life-long learner. I just can't help it as I'm sure that the more you learn (and apply of course!) the more conscious of your life & business choices you become. So my dear, recently I joined a 2-day transformational & hands-on training course 'Women in Leadership'...
