About me

Hi, I’m Ann. Before arriving in Portugal, in 2019, I built over 30 years of professional experience, of which 20 years as an entrepreneur.
I have guided over 150 small companies and organisations in Belgium.

My expertise is in strategic communication. I help my clients grow their business by teaching them how to make use of positive customer experiences.

Today I live and work in Braga, Portugal.

My move was a result of an inner journey, after getting stuck in a burn-out.

In Portugal I found peace of mind. I found a place which seemed to be meant for me. Or perhaps the place found me.

I created my new business, ‘Nefelibata’. Being Nefelibata means living your own dream, in an unconventional way. In other words: if you really want to achieve something, either in your business or in your private life, you can gain the strength and the confidence to do it and to make your dream happen. Guided by a positive mindset.

With Nefelibata I want to pass both my business and personal experiences onto anyone who is open to it, whether an entrepreneur or not. So, I take people on a journey, just as I have been and still am.

I am very happy that I can continue to grow my dream every day. I keep g(r)o(w)ing on my Journey, with an open mindset and with confidence. I have made a goal of passing my experience onto others, through the things I do every day.

The ‘Why’ of Nefelibata

Positive thinking, a positive mindset and positivity in general contribute to healthier body and mind.

Developing a positive mindset helps to see possibilities and solutions when facing challenges and difficulties in daily life.
It is the path that leads to reaching goals and to personal and business growth.

Nefelibata’s reason to exist is:

  • my strong belief in the power of positive thinking;
  • my strong will to impact on global mindset through positive attitude and positive communication;
  • my proven experience with positive stories contributing to business growth.

The Ambition of Nefelibata

Inspire

By sharing my personal story and the stories from others who inspire me, I want to encourage people to listen to their heart and to do what they feel they should do, with confidence and without fear of judgmental response.

Reach tools

  • Positive stories and experiences are powerful tools that can help businesses grow. I want to teach companies how they can use their own positive stories to make their business grow.
  • Positive thinking helps to cope with challenges in daily life. By organizing self care activities I want to help people develop and nourish a positive mindset, grow resilience and find the courage to set for their true goal life.

Values

My personal values have led to who I am and where I am today. They are my guiding tools, both in my private life and in my business.

Confidence

I strongly believe that anything is possible if you let go of what blocks you, let go of negativity and if you keep faith and trust in a good outcome, even in challenging situations.

Respect

Non judgmental acceptance of people, ideas and visions, also when they are different from your own.

Openness

I place a high value on the possibility to express sincere thoughts and feelings, with utmost respect for integrity. Being allowed to speak up in an open, honest and positive way without judging or being judged is an important form of mutual respect.

Authenticity

Pureness, allowed to be and to show who we are, without fear of being judged.
