Entrepreneurship in Europe
Do you have a business idea and want to get started in Europe? How is it going for you?
Europe wants more entrepreneurship on the one hand. On the other hand, many persons migrate for various reasons and as we all know, getting oriented in a new country is difficult.
Maybe you had a profession where you come from and see that recognition of your skills is not as easy as you hoped.
What is needed to start your own business? The most helpful attitude and mindset is open and active while being knowledgeable in many economic aspects. However, that alone will not lead you to your goal. Let’s have a look at our field research results from the five project partner countries and get you talking and thinking about how to pursue your goal with renewed fervor.

Currently, I work for an educational institution in Berlin, where I am in charge of international educational projects, mostly as part of the Erasmus+ program. The work for Europe corresponds to my values and the cooperation with the international project partners brings a lot of joy and good results.
For many years I worked in the private sector in administration, sales, marketing, and translations. Later, I swiftly completed my master’s degree in educational sciences where motivational theory and changes of attitude struck me as deep topics. The studies included minors in German and English Studies – each with linguistics and literature. The Master’s thesis of 2014 applies to possibilites for educational careers for refugee children in Berlin and has been published in German with the Logos Verlag. I worked in the school system for a short time, and taught language classes and did competency assessments in prisons. Also, I completed an HR management course, with a VET trainer‘s license.
Then I followed my calling and took a yoga teacher course and coaching seminars. On top of that I make visual art, write poetry, and sing, accompanied by shamanic drumming for personal growth in trance healing. I have been teaching yoga and coaching since 2019.
