Greetings rainbow warriors. I’m coming to you today from Split, Croatia. As I mentioned on the last show, I needed to exit the Schengen territory for a month due to visa restrictions (damn you borders)and after exploring many opportunities I decided on Croatia. Apologies for the show being a bit late this week, because I have been moving around a lot, and haven’t had an adequate place to work or record the show. Welcome to the world of a digital nomad ha. I’m saving a month of my Schengen Visa allowance for September when I’m offering a Yoga and Nature retreat in Sicily, Italy, and then moving on to Portugal for the DNX Festival where I’ll be speaking about “Wellness on the Road”. And hey did you notice I’m also offering a two week Wellness Workation in Bali in October? Check the show notes for links if any of them are calling you, sign up quick because early bird pricing is just about to expire.
So now on to today’s show. Our guest is Silvia Christmann.
Silvia’s Instagram Bio reads”Business Advisor. Growth Coach. Speaker. Mindful Nomad. Yogi. Meditator. Silvia is a growth coach and business mentor who’s spent the last 12 years helping high-achievers develop themselves, create the lives they want, and build successful businesses. Her mission is to maximize global impact by curating human potential. She works with people who dare to care, challenge dated systems, and transform the status quo. Her clients are visionaries and changemakers, driven to create the change they want to see in this world; building innovative, successful businesses while staying grounded in a meaningful life well-lived.
Achieving any audacious goal starts from a place of self-discovery and requires personal development. She gives her clients dynamic frameworks in which they can consistently learn, grow, and change. These frameworks provide the foundation needed to overcome obstacles and create clarity for effective execution. She was born in Germany, raised across Europe and has worked in more than seven countries. She has cultivated a high level of cross-cultural competence, which has allowed her to establish a global client base. In her early career, she specialized in business development and helped build successful companies from pre-revenue to their first million and beyond. Now, she focuses on structuring businesses and transforming leaders during periods of rapid scale. Before starting her boutique practice in 2011, she was part of three startups and played a central role in launching MediaRadar. Under her tenure, the company developed into an ad tech leader with more than $20 million in revenue.
She has been honored to work closely with tech entrepreneurs, hedge fund managers, physicians, lawyers, and professional athletes, as well as C-level executives at companies like Google, Bridgewater, PWC, Deutsch, and Tom’s Shoes, among many others. She has advised over 10 companies to effectively scale, including The Bond Collective (US), Look at Media (RU), and Sapina Ltd (APAC). She’s a keynote speaker who teaches seminars at Columbia University, Fortune 100 companies, and numerous global conferences.
And, she’s a yogi and a vegan guys.
I met Silvia at the DNX global conference in Lisbon last year. When I heard her presentation where she talked about freedom and so many other values I hold dear, I knew I needed to interview her. What I found during our conversation was a kindred spirit, another yomad on the path, doing her part to create positive change in the world. We talk about everything from her tools for sleeping well despite constant travel, to magical thinking , veganism and right livelihood. There are lots of juicy nuggets for you to discover here.
I hope you enjoy this episode and find some inspiration in it. Part of this series of interviews from the DNX tribe, is to show you models of possibility. To show you that there are people traveling the world nomadically and doing what they love. My intention is to inspire, empower and support you on your journey of activating your highest potential, and if traveling more is one of your goals, this show and this season, is for you.
