We ask our members to share a few thoughts: to introduce themselves to fellow members, and those who are interested in our community.

In this instalment, we interview Zeyda Broers of The School of Joy

Zeyda_Broers-School-of-JoyTell us about your business:
I am a personal productivity coach.
I believe that the world is a better place when more people live happier, healthier, successful, and content lives.
With my company The School of Joy, my mission is to support entrepreneurs and business owners to achieve the results they desire by empowering them with their time, energy, and attention.
I offer workshops, group coaching, and courses, in getting clarity, making confident decisions, goal-setting, planning, creating structure, time-energy-attention management, and getting things done! I advocate a systematical approach to deal with the rational side of the world, to create the softness and the space to tune into our natural organic flow in life.
By improving how we deal with our naturally limited resources -time, energy, and attention-, we create more positive results at work and in life with less stress, day after day.

What 5 words would you choose to describe your business?
Empowering, Educational, Supportive, Inspiring, Accessable

What are your most popular products or services?
Deep dive weekly-review sessions and coaching packages.

What do you like best about owning a business?
Freedom is one of my core values. My business gives me the freedom to serve the world in my terms.

What or who inspired you to start your business?
I named my company: The School of Joy after the quote of Wayne Dyer, “Remember, your natural state is joy.”
Joy is gleeful and exhilarating, and it fills you with a feeling of warmth. It makes you sparkle and gives you the energy you need to pursue your dreams and everything else.
With the busyness of this modern-day, keeping up with the demands of day-to-day life, we all feel disconnected from -our natural state of being-, our joy of life, from time to time. I believe it is possible for each of us to connect back to our ever-existing joy of life by discovering the obstacles that stand in the way and learning to deal with them, and getting in control of our time energy and attention is an excellent place to start.

What makes your products/services special?
My holistic life approach to productivity and the variety of tools and sources I use in my method, -from project management to yoga philosophy-.

What motivates you on a daily basis?
Living a life true to my values and being a good role model for my 8-year-old daughter is my biggest motivation. Having clear goals and the buzz of making progress each day energises me to get out of bed each morning.

What advice would you give women who are starting a business?
You are enough.
Always have a plan (but be flexible about it).
Hang in there

What’s your favourite business book?
The Surrender Experiment by Michael A. Singer, is an astonishing true-life story about what happens when you just let go. It is not directly a business book per se, but he tells the story of how he has built his multimillion-dollar company.

How do you relax?
As Mark Ruffalo says “There is nothing a good long walk can’t help work out.”
I love taking walks in nature, in wintertime, my favorite is parks and forests, and in summer you can find me on the beach.

Are you running any offers or promotions that you would like us to mention?
I have a new course coming in May: Create your productive flow. You can find more information on this link
