Know yourself. Escape the mediocrity. Have a plan for solving a problem in the world and a plan for what you want to achieve in your life. This is the key to becoming a master of your own ”entrepreneurial” fate.
My name is Krisztina Kiss and I am dedicating myself teaching people how they can always get the source of never-ending entrepreneurial mindset growth.
Did you know that:
I was born in a small town in Romania and brought up in a very traditional culture. I always knew I was different – I didn’t agree with my parents’ mindset and view of life, and I felt confined by my school’s rules and expectations. However, because I respected my parents and teachers, I never voiced my true opinions.
As I grew older, I started asking myself: should by parents’ culture and school’s teaching also become mine by default?
Do I have to follow their lead or can I be strong and fearless enough to thread my own path instead? I decided I had to find out for myself.
After I graduated with a degree in European Studies, International Relations and Law, I began searching for my dream job. I felt like I didn’t quite know myself well enough to know what I wanted, so I experimented with different positions – worked as a sales assistant, secretary, assistant manager, and so on…
I soon found out that to succeed in this world, one had to be a ‘soldier’ – to have the motivation to develop oneself and continuously work to improve. I believed I had what it took to be a successful entrepreneur so I started my own online store.
I failed. I didn’t had the experience or knowledge, so my business went into flames. The failure, however, didn’t put me down – I’ve always believed that failure is just an obstacle to success, so I took it as a learning experience, a progress of sorts that taught me I needed to expand my horizons.
I took charge once again and went on my own to a new country, Germany. I struggled for a long time, looking for help in all the wrong places. I realized my failure wasn’t due to me not being strong, smart or creative enough but rather, because I was on the lookout for a hero – someone to save me from my problems and hand me the solution.
In reality, we are our own heroes and when nobody came to my rescue, I had to save myself.
It took me only a couple of months living abroad to discover my true values in life. I wanted to become my own woman, to be in charge of my life and to do so, I started:
♥ Reading business books
♥ Buying & Studying self-development & business courses
♥ Experimenting what works for me and what doesn’t
♥ Starting to write & create my own content online
♥ Traveling more
At this point, after transforming all the successful activities into habits, not just my productivity and motivation had increased, but also the curiosity of what kind of results I am capable to produce over and over again.
Experimenting and being consistent were my key elements for creating and start selling online value for others.
I have designed a 30 minutes crash course with all my insides on how to create and sell value to your ideal audience. It turned out to become one of my best selling (short and affordable) courses. If you feel that this is something with what you can boost up your entrepreneurial mindset and your game in business then check out the VC-Crash Course here.
But being valuable in business is not just about solving problems for others, but actually also knowing the fundamentals of business, to know yourself, know your audience and be able to talk to them, be engaged and once again, consistent.
I truly believe, like lots of entrepreneurs do, that making books your mentors is the best, fastest and cheapest way to achieve your goals. Because of that, I designed a book club exclusively just for women entrepreneurs.
There is a free membership and a lot of mentoring about how to turn the knowledge you read into action. Plus the monthly book recommendations and free business resources are not missing either. Feel free to join together with like-minded women Uptoyourself Book Club Express here.
Don’t forget to check out Uptoyourself BLOG area too, where you can read (in the morning at a cup of coffee/tea/smoothie for example) helpful and inspirational content written for successful women entrepreneurs.
Having more women entrepreneurs on earth who globalize and empower women to build great things in the world.
Helping women think and act like successful entrepreneurs.
Teaching women how to build their own business, and escape from being a victim of the society.
To create courses, coaching programs and workshops, which will help women start their entrepreneurial journey the right way.
On my entrepreneurial journey I have learned that it is up to you how much you want to discover, learn and build.
This is my inspiration for choosing the name of my business: Uptoyourself. It’s not just a reminder for myself, but it is for everybody, it is for YOU.
After traveling a lot as a woman, backpacking, hitchhiking, flying etc. (Click here to follow my travel adventures on instagram @uptoyourself.coaching) I met a lot of women, like me. I saw that there are a lot of innovative women who want to start their own business.
But let’s be real. It can be very hard sometimes for a woman to succeed in a world that mostly is still dominated by men.
While time has changed and it is in a continuous change with globalization, many more women want to become independent.
They want to thrive, but they are so afraid. Their lack of confidence, not believing enough in themselves, and not having the knowledge of business fundamentals is the result of failing or even not trying at all. Their ideas remain just a dream.
Do you think about the time you weren’t happy or in a good mental state? It was most likely due to you not having any goals or any motivation to accomplish those goals.
There might have been some expectations from before that did not work out and it ought to, and thereby that, or some other aspects that did not work out appropriately, might keep on considerably affecting both your insight and outer state of being.
If you don’t know what path you want to go down, it can really destroy your motivation, because you don’t really have anything to work towards.
But luckily, a new chapter in your life has started and now it’s totally UP TO YOURSELF if you want to keep playing small or begin to thrive in your business and personal life.
For this reason, I want to help you think and act like a real entrepreneur, find your next steps, take action in your entrepreneurial journey and show you the fundamentals of business.
I honestly believe also that women, or men, if we work together, we can build great things in the world and great businesses. I am always open to help anybody, despite gender.
