Anne Büttner

Your area of specialization:

Text and storytelling

Career:

As a copywriter and storytelling coach, I show you how to become visible you’re your story authentically and confidently.

Since my first visit to the cinema, the magic of storytelling has never left me. Storytelling makes me feel like I can go out into the world and see it a little differently. With your story, you too can showcase the world what you want to your customers!

Everything you need is already inside you – your personality and story. Your business’s story can help make a difference in the world, while still staying true to yourself.

What are you most excited about in your work as a coach?

I am always thrilled to see how much energy and passion the founders have for bringing their ideas into the world. It gives me great pleasure to support them on their journey and to accompany them into the light.

What should not be missing on your perfect day?

Sun. A good book. A good movie. Pen and paper. A rock or a climbing gym.

Franziska Chesnel

Your area of specialization:

Accounting and tax law

Career:

With tax law fascinating me during my studies, and my personal ambition, my drive to become a tax consultant was born – My first professional steps were in sales tax, at two of the four biggest auditing firms worldwide – by the way, sales tax is still my favorite type of tax. After the tax consultant exam, few stop-overs in companies, several years of employment as a tax consultant with 5 small children at hand, the time had come for my own self-employment. Here I am at .garage after 3 years – although no longer as a tax consultant 😉 – after being a client of .garage myself, with at the time not much knowledge about logo design, marketing, SEO, etc..

Your “signature” as a coach:

Keep it simple.

What do you like most about your work at .garage?

Tax law is insanely extensive and can be incredibly complicated for outsiders. My coaching is designed to provide essential knowledge that start-ups need to launch their business model without external support, and make their accounting/taxes selfsufficient.

Cake for breakfast, time with family, a book in hand & creativity.

Focus on your core competencies. If tax law is not one of them and you can afford it, have the accounting/taxes done externally and keep an eye on your company’s key numbers on the side.

This methodology makes it possible to set and achieve durable goals and solutions that would otherwise not last in pure management consultancy.

Your “signature” as a coach:

As we work together, I ask my coachees questions about their personal and professional orientations and competencies. It is also usually about the search for a meaningful occupation. Together we find out what your professional path could be.

I am deeply convinced that the world needs people who listen to their intuition and heart and shape their lives self-determined and powerfully according to their true nature. The world needs people who are connected to their essence, who can develop and live with their very own abilities, and who experience peace within themselves and thus work for themselves and the world.

With different creative methods, visualizations, and mindfulness practices I encourage you to bring hidden treasures into the light. Changes in perspective create new ways of seeing the world and bring about clarity on which path to take. We strengthen self-efficacy to achieve personal and professional goals, improve intuition, and inspire to become your own life’s creator.

What are you most excited about in your work as a coach?

Bringing hidden treasures into the light and strengthening self-efficacy together.
