Mission Accepted Podcast

Join Yvonne as she shares with Deborah, openly and honestly, how she navigated from having decisions made for her to being a decision maker. How she traded in her corporate heels for Merrills to backpack around Europe for a year. How she grew up, then grew down to discover who she really was, because she knew the work had to begin first with herself. She shares her story in the hopes that others will find their own. Maybe it’ll nudge them into reframing their priorities. Maybe it ultimately sets them loose into their freedom-life.

Seeking Freedom

Yvonne’s journey as a Freedom Seeker began at an early age in former communist Germany.
In our conversation, she shares frankly and deeply about her life experiences and how they shaped not only her desire to live free in every aspect of life but also how her journey led her to be a powerful guide for female entrepreneurs to create freedom through their businesses.

Freedom to live life fully

Today we’re sitting in circle with Yvonne Winkler, a calm, gentle, light-hearted soul with a big mission – to help women harness their strengths to live a life they choose. She is a freedom seeker, and soul-sister, and someone I admire because she has done the courageous work of taking her pain, and consciously turning it into her passion and gift to the world. In this episode:

  • A story of Yvonne’s painful beginning that drew her toward the work she does today
  • How our own self-care radiates out and impacts everything around us
  • The pitfalls that are keeping women away from freedom
  • The effective ways we can move beyond these barriers and find safety and security regardless of our situation
  • Yvonne’s beautiful story of being the change

From fear to freedom

Yvonne’s journey as a Freedom Seeker began at an early age in former communist Germany. In this interview with Yvonne Winkler, the CEO of Lotus Consulting, we hear an uncommon story of a young girl who fled from oppression to freedom. Then, as a young woman, how she left a highly regarded job to discover true fulfilment on her own terms and to become the woman she is today. We talked about how “starting over” requires courage, trust and the ability to let go of the securities we believe in. A common thread we found in our stories is that when you trust your heart and act from your inner feminine wisdom, the rest will work out the way it needs to.
