My name is Andrea Halmy, Founder of BeYourBest4Success. I help you to think bigger and reach your career and business goals with a smile.
I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed, embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. ― Roald Dahl, My Uncle Oswald
You must do the things you think you cannot do. ― Eleanor Roosevelt
We know what we are, but not what we may be. ― William Shakespeare
Who am I?
As a career redesigner, consultant and trainer I help people get out of their comfort zone and design their own future in congruence with their personal values and talents. I help you think bigger and achieve your goals faster and with a smile. I am interested in entrepreneurship, psychology, innovation, creativity, design thinking, holacracy, organizational change and change management.
What do I believe in?
Think big, and then start with the first small step.
Besides coaching I am experienced in designing, planning and delivering trainings and workshops in German, English and French. I have run trainings and workshops on topics like Leadership, Communication, Presentation Skills, Self Management, and Personal Branding. Topics which I also address in my coachings. My background is a bilingual Bachelor in Management, a Certificate of Advanced studies in Personnel and Organizational Development, 4 years as a job and career coach, 4 years as Head of the trainers team of AFS Switzerland, having worked as trainer and workshop facilitator, and in various fields like recruiting, marketing, and event management.
How did I get to where I am now?
While most of my classmates at university seemed to have a clear career path in mind, I was apparently a typical Gen X, mostly feeling completely unsure about what I wanted to do with my life and especially having no clue what I was really good at. There were many things I liked doing and I did not want to imagine myself committing to only one thing in life. So my career path took me through working in marketing, recruiting, event management, in a PR agency, as a trainer and workshop facilitator, and finally as a job and career coach. I gained knowledge and experience in a variety of fields, but I was still always searching for a new challenge, where I could finally combine all this knowledge and experience with my talents and skills. I therefore decided to take a longer break from everything to become clearer on my next steps. Especially, because the wish to start my own business had been stuck in my head for quite some time by then. I terminated my rental contract, sold my furniture and stored what I had decided to keep in a storage and was off with my backpack for the next 5 months. My journey took me through Australia, Tasmania, New Zealand, with shorter stops in Dubai, Singapore, Bangkok and Fiji. I came back, having met awesome people along the way and with the unshakeable confidence that I could do it and that I would go for it. Even if I failed, at least I had tried. So I began to actively design my own career and finally started my own business.
And now it is your turn to make your big dreams come true with a smile.
So, what are you waiting for? Are you ready to take the next step? Or still not 100% sure? In any case, let´s have a talk.
