Jeanet Wolf is a digital nomad with high standards in life and business. After breaking her back in 2012, she ended her natural horsemanship business and turned her life around. Currently she’s running 3 online businesses with her husband while traveling the world for the rest of their lives – living, working and enjoying life on their own terms. Read our interview with the lovely Jeanet below…
What motivated and inspired you to start your own business?
I’ve always liked doing things my way. There are two big reasons why I decided to start my own business(es). First, because of my fibromyalgia and CFS, I didn’t fit in a ‘normal’ job. Being my own boss was the best choice to make in this case, so I could do the work I love to do and work on my own terms. When I have a bad day or week I can work less and when I feel great I can work more. Second, because I knew there was more! I knew it was possible to work and travel at the same time. I knew it was possible to break free from the standard. I knew it was possible to decide what my time was worth (a.k.a. the smarter I work, the better my income would be). I knew my possibilities in life and business were limitless. I didn’t know how, but I knew I could. And that’s why I started my own business.
Tell us about your business.
I coach people who are 100% committed to change their life and/or their business in the best way possible. I coach (online) entrepreneurs and digital nomads to build their business in a way to create freedom in every aspect – time, finances, location, or whatever type of freedom they may be looking for. I coach people who know there is more in life, people who know their possibilities are limitless, people who are ready to break free from the standard and start living at their highest potential, in life and in business. Because my business is fully online, I can work wherever I want. Currently I’m living in Bali, originally I’m from the Netherlands. I travel the world and live and work where I want, whenever I want and for how long I want.

Where is your business based?
Wherever I am in the world. Originally in the Netherlands though.
What were the first few steps you took to get your business up and running?
Made a plan. I asked myself… what do I want in life, what are my goals? What is my big vision? And after I knew what I wanted in life, I needed to decide how to get there and act on my goals. I think it is very important to know what kind of life you really want, to know who you are and who you want to be. And when you know that, make a plan to fit your business into your dream life. In that way, your business and your life will absolutely grow to the next level. The best choice I ever made was working with the brightest coaches to get me to the highest level possible in the most effective way possible.
What has been the most effective way of raising awareness of your business and getting new customers?
Email marketing is my absolute number one way. And at this moment, we are working on social media as well, but since the beginning, email marketing has been the best and most effective way. I’m sure social media will make it even more effective.
What have been your biggest challenges so far?
Physical setbacks because of my fibromyalgia and CFS. But I know now that living in warm climates, taking good care of my body and being thankful for everything I have in my life, that I am able to manage it very well.
How did you overcome these challenges?
To never stop looking for what is best for my body and my mind and do those things that work every day.
How do you keep motivated through difficult times?
Every month I take two days off and I’m fully offline. Those days I recharge, meditate a lot and do what I want. I also meditate every day for 20 minutes (sometimes less) and start the day with things that make me feel very good (swimming, eating healthy, a little sports routine, writing down everything I’m grateful for). Because I start my day in a way that makes me feel very good, I can handle the difficult moments without a problem. And to be honest, when I start my day in the best and most positive way, it’s hard to have a bad day ;).
How do you distinguish yourself from your competitors?
I live the life I love, I build the business I want, I reach for my highest potential, I never settle down for less than awesome, and by doing that I walk the talk. That’s what makes me ‘me’ and what makes me stand out from the rest.
What is the best advice you have received recently?
Always remember your why.
What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs?
Always have coaches who help you become better. Having coaches will make a huge difference in your life and in your business. Always invest in the best coaches possible.
What is your favorite business tool or resource?
My coaches – currently I talk to my 3 coaches weekly.
