What determines success from failure? What do successful people do to enable their own success?
These are the fundamental questions the ideamix founders asked themselves as they started ideamix in 2019. From the beginning, ideamix focused on 2 key pillars to further a learning and purpose driven mindset. First, ideamix shared the stories of founders, coaches and mentors through its ideamix radio podcast. Second, ideamix started a series of small group coaching workshops for early stage female founders.
The ah-ha moment came hard and fast.
The transformational power of coaching in the ideamix workshops was crystal clear immediately to ideamix and its workshop participants. What also became clear was the limited scalability of the workshops. We built the ideamix coaching platform to amplify the transformational impact of coaching. Using the ideamix product, every individual can find their ideal coach to unlock their own success.
Female founded, with a focus on coaching & community.
The ideamix founders are women with a strong core belief in the power of the individual, the transformational impact of coaching, the importance of a learning mindset, and the multiple, diverse, and deeply individual definitions of purpose and success. As a company, the culture of ideamix is focused on its core mission of building understanding, collaboration, and community to enable every individual to use coaching to define their own purpose and unlock their own success.
In my 30s, a number of different pressures converged upon me – a lack work life balance, the challenge of growing a business and managing a team, taking on too many responsibilities, and the need to create boundaries with family. I had no idea how to learn these skills on my own. At my partner’s suggestion, I began a 6 month journey of working with a coach. It transformed me and the way I’ve lived my life ever since.
We started ideamix to connect individuals and businesses with the performance advisors, experts, coaches and mentors they need, to live their best work and personal lives. We also wanted to work hard, have fun, learn continuously, and build an amazing team.
I’m a career changer, entrepreneur and lifelong learner. I love sharing stories, connecting people and challenging myself. I’m a huge believer in the idea that you can do anything you really want to if you can unlock yourself.
Growing up in several different countries, I learned early on that family, education, curiosity, knowledge and collaboration are the most essential assets. I was also taught that to whom much is given, from them, much is expected.
When I encountered loss and grief as a child, it taught me to cultivate gratitude and to understand the work it takes to become strong while remaining supple, and evolving beyond both my achievements and disappointments.
I played tennis competitively in high school, attended Harvard University and Harvard Business School, worked in finance at JP Morgan, private equity at Corsair, consulting at G3, and tech at Palantir. I married the man I fell in love with: he’s still my best friend and we have three beautiful children.
In short, I have lived different versions of doing ‘anything’ I wanted. But ‘anything’ is often overwhelming. Developing self-awareness and humility to recognize where we are and what we want is the key to living a life that truly fulfils us.
With ideamix, I’ve been able to combine my love of learning with the joy of building, and helping bring people and communities together. In hindsight, the clues were always there: I loved interacting with people, understanding what drives them and connecting them to their potential.
As a problem solver, I also enjoy creating order out of chaos, creating structures and sharing my insights and solutions.
As a leader, I love building teams and watching the magic that happens when individuals connect for mutually rewarding interactions.
