You know how they say…

how we spend most of our time, is how we spend our lives? Since you work 5/7 days, you better damn spend it on a career you LOVE.

But what if that thing you loved doing, is no longer an option for you. Not all of us had the opportunity to blossom into world-famous, celebrity status athletes. That means your hard work has gone unnoticed to most of the world. There are no sponsorships lurking around the corner that can make you rich, and you don’t really have a big enough platform to launch a sustainable, long-term business.

This situation can make you feel like the years of dedication were all for nothing.

I am here to help you change that!

What my
clients say

“Thanks for your time yesterday! It was a nice conversation with good tips. Thanks for the document and the boost you gave me. You were so enthusiastic, you saw how creative I am and how much passion I have for my profession as a party stylist.”

Stacy Laurent

Something amazing happened! I was approached on Saturday by someone who asked me via Instagram if I wanted to make an illustration of her, her boyfriend and his restaurant for Father’s Day. And she’s paying me for it! She came to my account via Instagram. How cool?

Chantal Peeters

Recently I had a 1: 1 session with Gillian. I followed her on Instagram for a while and therefore my expectations were high. I can say that she lived up to my expectations. Gillian prepares well for the sessions. After a nice meeting, I received a document with a summary of our conversation, extra information and a tangible to-do list to take the first steps.
