My name is Ellen van der Laan. I am married and I have 2 sons, 4 bonus children and 3 (bonus) grandchildren. I worked for 32 years as a specialist nurse on the ambulance and in the emergency room. I have been the owner of the GHAAV beauty salon in Almere for 10 years now, where I also offer foot reflexology therapy in addition to beauty treatments. In recent years, I have also focused on coaching in mirroring. My goal with my company is to teach women to take good care of themselves by addressing both the inside and the outside.
Due to a fateful event in my past, caring for others became a common thread in my life. I used to put myself in second, third or even last place. After being dismissed due to reorganization and having become deaf in one ear, I had a difficult time. And when my youngest son of 18 years old at that time went into assisted living, I ended up in a burnout.
Because help from psychologists and social workers came to nothing with previous intense experiences in my life, I started to approach it differently. I went to seek help from a NEI (Neuro Emotional Integration) therapist and started working with mirror coaching. I found that caring for others was in my subconscious system. Taking good care of myself first remains a challenge for me, but I’m getting better at it.
In my salon I already worked with nutritional supplements specially made for beauticians. These would be 100% natural, but unfortunately this turned out not to be the case. The account manager of care products I work with advised me to contact Sonja, so I did. I am very happy that Sonja and Beyuna came my way. Everything has now accelerated and I have now terminated the lease of my business premises. For now I will continue working from home, but eventually I want to focus more and more on Beyuna.
I see Beyuna as a wonderful part of my personal growth process. I am finally putting myself first. And yes, that means that I will make money.
With the help of my husband I have now reached Jupiter level. My goal is to get at least five distributors under me this first year. I would also like to guide an organization. And besides, I have decided to in two years I will take the stage to give a presentation. What I especially like about Beyuna is the positive atmosphere. There is no competition, only cooperation. And of course I think the supplements are fantastic. I am really looking forward to my adventure at Beyuna.
