Hi! I’m Marina, Founder of Coachiba.
I am an entrepreneur, proud mum of two kids, and during the workdays „home alone“ with the children. My uniqueness is the combined expertise and experience of career coaching, business coaching and family coaching! In addition I use this expertise to consult companies and (women) networks and offer keynote speeches. And I live what I train – in regards to kids and career and of course also in regards to parenting approaches!
My profound experience lies in leading and facilitating change: at the age of 28 I became manager in the automotive industry and started leading international change processes. Afterwards, I joined KPMG in the business consulting sector (as manager with procura) for transformations for seven years.
My oldest alias „thunderstorm“ brought totally new challenges to my life. Therefore I invested in a 2.5-year education as systemic family coach… 2022 I built the Coachiba GmbH and follow my passion to live and facilitate a career with kids and accompany personal transformations.
Which changes in my life were the biggest challenges for me?
Beeing the queen of perfect planning … my kids introduced a totally new world to me: 24/7 under external control. This was a tough learning process for myself. My kids led me through it starting with a long wait before becoming pregnant, complications throughout the pregnancy, premature birth and much more. It seemed as if nothing regarding my parenthood would go the usual way…
Now I live my personal goal, to be the best possible mum for my kids, whilst maintaining an extraordinary and successful career.
I absolutely love input, change and a diverse lifestyle. For a long period of time everything I did had to be „better, faster, higher and more intense“.
Having lived in six countries, finished my Master at the age of 21 with distinction, led international teams and projects and was successful in competitive sports. I defined myself via my success.
It was a journey to learn, that I can also be a patient, calm and understanding mom and business woman with strong roots!
Even with a really great position and flexible employer… I wanted to see my idea „Coachiba“ go live.
As I don’t do things by halves! I invested my savings into myself and my business and went all in…
I had the clearest vision of what „kids have to be like“ and how parenting works BEFORE I became a mom.
… overcome sleepless nights, remove the expectations you project onto your kids, find solutions for a child that refuses to go to kindergarden and really suffers in a given system, evaluate alternative schools, living in a loving flow with high need children, providing fair solutions for siblings …
Basically I could write many more things that my kids tought me already, but the most important is, they keep teaching me every day! And every day they definitely test if I really practice what I teach within the family coaching… 😉
What adds up to my coaching personality?
International experiences including business expatriations.
