Stefan’s Path

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete – Buckminster Fuller

Kia ora, G’day, Guten Tag und Servus

I am Stefan Saller

I was born in Nuremberg, Frankonia (which is the Northern part of Bavaria but muuuuuch better 😉) and had a “normal” life up to 2009 with a “normal” job as an IT Project Manager in the Corporate world…

What happened in 2009?

Well… My wife and I left Germany for good because we weren’t satisfied with our lives in, what we now call Greyland. We moved South of Down Under which is New Zealand. That was (still is) a BIG thing for us and we’re enjoying it very very VERY much (even with our current travelling where we are living a few months a year in Australia, or West Island)…

After a short while Sandra started to live her dream; she founded her own business in Meditation, Reiki and Feng Shui called Meditation Tauranga. She got clients in our little town Tauranga (“little” for the rest of the world but it’s New Zealand’s 6th largest city) and enjoyed (still enjoying) it very much…

I was responsible to bringing in the money for paying the bills. So, I was still in a 9 to 5 job and sitting in an office. It was fun… ok, not every time but most of it. But I needed something else, something different. Something that felt more fun…. So, I joined “The Internet Trek”…

That was back in 2010 and I learned A LOT about webpages, writing in English (which is my 2nd language), SEO (Search Engine Optimization), basic graphic design, fiddling with digital pictures and videos, and so much more…. Learning never ends 😊 ….

I had a niche webpage about architecture, sustainable living and energy efficient houses and I shared my passion and knowledge but it’s just a hobby of mine and I am not a particular expert with the right expertise…

Anyway….

One day after a nice dinner with Sandra (and a bottle of red wine) while talking about our life in general and our future in particular, we decided to join forces…

It felt so obvious; Sandra would bring in her teaching, coaching and training experience and I would bring in my IT knowledge. Easy as…. 😉

That day around that table, the seed for our Online Academy was set…..

I finally left the corporate world (maybe I make a video about this decision in a while…). We took our stuff into storage and since July 2017 then we’ve been housesitting in New Zealand, Australia and Europe. We knew we would have to cut down on costs, but it was definitely one of the best decisions we have made in the last 20 years (coming a close second after the decision of moving to New Zealand). We are now free to travel and discover the world! 😉 …

I am still working as a Project Manager for clients via the internet and enjoying it very much… But my main task is our academy and the whole technical stuff behind it AND what we are achieving for people and our clients… That’s what I really enjoy…. AND OUR LIFE  😊
