…to Cream & Travel
My Work & Travel adventure started in Australia in 2013, where I also started to work as a beauty consultant to finance my travels. I was enthusiastic about the idea of being able to work worldwide whenever and wherever I wanted. This opened up completely new possibilities for me – not only to be a traveler, but also to be able to immerse myself into the local life for a while. Being able to travel to other countries always requires certain financial reserves. If these were missing, does this meanthere are no opportunities to see the world?
After my Work & Travel year in Australia, I studied a semester abroad and worked part-time as a beauty consultant. After my time in Australia, I decided to go to Israel and America for a few months, so I ended up being on the road for almost a year again. This is when like-minded people started asking me frequently how I am able to finance all my travels. When I finished my studies, the “real” life began. I started working in various nine-to-five jobs – but no job really wanted to fit me. There had to be something between these two extremes, my mind kept telling me. Once again, a hint of fate brought me a company contact that had specialized in pre-founder coaching. At that time, I wasn’t really aware that I was going to build my own business.
After I sent an e-mail with my business idea, I got invited to an interview by ZGS. I presented my idea more detailed and got invited to a four-day assessment center with seven other founders. Our ideas were audited: market, competition- and target group analysis, own personality, abilities, further steps. My idea suddenly became quite real – would I really be able to keep up with being self-employed?
Fortunately, doubts were not possible because I already held a voucher for 30 coaching hours in my hand. Since then, I have a mentor by my side who goes through every step of the pre-founding process with me. The first big step had been taken – the service and recruitment agency Cream & Travel was born to send women and men interested in global travels and beauty to the leading companies in the field of “sale of skin care products”.
The rest will come on its own. What could go wrong if you follow your dream and also open doors for others?
