Your right to speak comes with the duty to listen – Amit Kalantri

Hello, I’m Lisanne and I create content for this, – and other websites. Welcome to my personal blog, where I share about the people I meet, the books I’m reading, and what I’m learning.

Why I do what I do

I write articles to trigger conversations. There are always areas of vast silence in any culture: subjects we don’t like to talk about. I like to go into those areas and come back from silence with something to say.

To me there is no bigger joy than writing about ideas that are worth spreading, sharing personal lessons that may be useful for you or sharing books that may broaden your perspective on things.

Therefore, my content is into the business of changing mindsets and broadening perspectives. For example, the first blog that I wrote is called like this: This to me is the definition of success. I brought this thought of mine to the blog because how we as a society define success has been in my mind for years. Most of the times it’s defined in a narrow way, that is often not true to who individuals actually are and what those individuals actually want and need in life.

So blogging has become one of my greatest loves because it not only allows me to speak my truth and to trigger conversations on important and inspiring subjects – it also helps me to get in touch with like-minded people like you.

Finding like-minded people on platforms like this could be a great start to not only talk about change, but actually be the change we all want to see in the world.

How I do it

I believe that if you find a way to do work that you love, you’re way more likely in succeeding it. Enjoying and appreciating the process of getting there, will help you achieve that something faster.

Finding meaningful work and creating a life you want is not easy. If we don’t understand our own priorities in life, we can easily fall into the trap of following the priorities of others – which is a path to a life that we might not want to live.

That’s why I am in the business of allowing people to see the best of themselves through the work that I do and the stories that I am able to tell. I want to use my blogging platform as a force for good by sharing thoughts and ideas of myself and (extra) ordinary others.

I believe that stories are powerful and can thrive change: if you know better, you tend to do better. Sharing stories on what women experience in life, in work and how they find meaning and make a change, can start conversations, shift mindsets or just make you laugh a little bit.

I hope that, at the end of the day, those stories are going to bring some more meaning, joy and wisdom to your life to create the life you want, and make the best of it yourself.

Recently I also made the announcement that I will launch an e-book called Negotiating for salary – and how to change the mindset as a woman. I’ve seen the struggle with negotiating around me and among my own female friends and decided to collect all the information and research that I could find about this topic and added my own experiences to it. The result is there for everyone to benefit from. More about it this december, Stay tuned!!!
