First of all, how are you and your family doing in these Pandemic times?
Firstly Dejan, Thank you for the opportunity to do this Interview for Life Coach Code. We are all doing very, very well.
We are extremely fortunate that life has returned to normalcy somewhat and for this we express our gratitude daily.
How does the coronavirus pandemic affect your clients? Did it affect you at all?
If anything, the pandemic has given people more time to think. To reevaluate what IS working in their lives, and what needs to change.
In particular, we have observed the biggest shifts have been in Careers and Relationships.
I believe more clarity has come out of the pandemic lockdowns. People were forced to get to know themselves again, like or loathe!
So, for our clients, and for us, the pandemic so far has given us the ultimate luxury of more time and more learning.
What are the biggest lessons that you learned in this pandemic?
The biggest lessons i have learnt so far in this pandemic are:
1. Be kind to yourself.
2. Why stress about what you can not change?
3. Learn, Learn, Learn and then learn some more…

Tell us about you, your career, how you started with your coaching career?
I founded M Coaching Academy in 2019 to encourage others to break free from their “conditioning” and help them to turn their lives into an incredible adventure that few people will only dream of!
I am a certified Master Practitioner, DISC Trainer, Emotionally Intelligent Teams’ Trainer, Master Sales Trainer, Professionally Trained Speaker, Master Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming, Conscious Hypnotist, a member of the NLP Association and have over 25 years’ experience in building successful Teams.
My accumulated knowledge has but one purpose: to INSPIRE others.
“Genius requires Boldness”
What was your biggest obstacle that you had to overcome in your life that made you who you are today?
Like most people, I have faced many, many obstacles in my life.
The biggest obstacle was emotionally traumatic and affected my mental and physical states deeply which took many many years to recover from.
It wasn’t until I started doing my Coaching Training that I learnt how to deal with the guilt and the grief and find a way forward.
Shortly after this trauma occurred in my life, I discovered I was pregnant with my son. From this day on, my focus completely shifted to raising and nurturing him and being the best mother I could be.
I realized at this point that failure was a word that would be forever eliminated from my vocabulary. I now view “failure” as simply an opportunity to succeed.
Profoundly, this has formed a large part of who I am today.
The Coaching Style:
How do you innovate with coaching your clients?
Innovation is constantly changing. Here at M Coaching Academy, we strive to serve our clients with:
We aim to make sure we deliver more than our clients expect and we make it as easy as possible to allow people to create their own innovation, be it in their businesses, their careers and their lives.
What’s unique about your coaching approach?
At M Coaching Academy, we strive to always coach in alignment with our values, which are:
We do this through three main forces:
As each of our clients are so different, their challenges and solutions are ever changing.
Our coaching approach aligns collectively with the forces above, our values AND the professional skill sets we have to provide a truly unique and innovative experience for the client.
What benefits do your clients get after working with you?
By working with us, our clients benefit from:
And the ability to create long lasting change for themselves.
The community they become a part of remains long after they have completed their time with us.
Do you use any specific tools to be efficient with your clients?
Yes! I have spent many, many years training, learning and perfecting the tools and strategies we use with our clients.
Obviously it really depends on each individual or team as to which combination of tools we use, however, here is a brief example:
success principles, vision, mission and values, emotional intelligence, conscious hypnosis, relaxation techniques to relieve stress and anxiety, NLP including meta models, milton model, timeline technique, behavioral profiling, team performance intelligence, leadership, communication and International Coaching Federation core competencies.
If you had a super megaphone that, when you speak into, the whole world will hear your message, what would you say?
I would say:
“WEAR YOUR CROWN PROUDLY”
Recognize your strengths.
Revel in your gifts.
Stand in your POWER!
“DO NOT PLAY SMALL……. EVER”
What is the greatest lesson you have learned in your life?
The greatest lesson I have learned in my life so far, is that: I AM worthy.
I have finally set myself free. Free from restrictions. Free from limitations. Free from all the beliefs and excuses that were holding me back. Free from negative people dragging me down.
I have found my voice.
For the first time in my life, I am truly at peace with myself.
Your final thoughts?
Trust your path.
Trust the things you cannot see but know deep within.
