Entrepreneur, Reinvention Mentor, Women’s Empowerment Coach – AnYes van Rhijn

Tell us a little something about your business...

I owe my title of “The Reinvention Mentor” to my capacity to bounce back whatever life throws at me. For twenty-five years, I climbed the corporate ladder, working hard to be successful. At forty, I had that nagging feeling that there must be more to life. I came across a coaching training and decided to leave the corporate world to set up my own business. I worked very successfully as an Executive Coach for eight years, but I still had that nagging feeling that something wasn’t working for me.

When was your lightbulb moment?

Until life threw a new challenge at me! I decided to leave a toxic relationship. I was 57 and I left with exactly 43€ and an empty bank account. I had to move in with one of my sisters and stayed there for one year. It turned out this was the catalyst I needed to decide what I no longer wanted in life. I saw it as a unique opportunity to reconsider all my choices in life and business. I turned my back to Executive Coaching and decided to embrace my mission of empowering professional women. I also decided to rise from my ashes by moving to London at 58 with nothing else than two suitcases, eight weeks of house sitting and without any form of income or savings. I challenged my beliefs and dared to embrace the unknown; I thought out of the box and tested doing things differently; I reconnected the dots between me, my life and my business. As a result, I managed to thrive again, stronger than before and I’m now the proud owner of two businesses that complement each other beautifully and are completely aligned with my Why.

What are your three words of advice?

I believe that we always have a choice and that with a strong vision if we raise our self-awareness, make conscious choices and stay intentional and focused, we can create the successful (whatever that means to us) business that will sustain the fulfilling life we desire. I have done so for myself and I’m now helping my clients do the same.
