Minnie von Mallinckrodt-Grant (Minnie Von Coaching) @MinnieVon
Minnie had a fab career in Global Sales and Marketing working for Blue Chip Companies in Medical devices and diagnostics. She was very well looked after by her employers and learned about sales, marketing, business as well as leading, coaching and mentoring others.
Whilst she loved her career, she always had a desire to work for herself. Minnie wanted more flexibility, especially after she had a child (can you relate?).
Always having a strong work ethic, Minnie was dismayed at working in an environment with people who were miserable and hated their jobs, but they needed the money and felt trapped!
Minnie says: “I believe you choose what you attract in life. I love pushing myself and having adventures. Life is for living. If you are not 100% happy in your work or life, then change it.”
