Structure Queen

  • ​Yes, I have actually been called that by a lot of entrepreneurs for years :) I love everything structure and productivity!

  • Being structured and productive is what have made me succeed in so many fields at once. And I am very rarely stressed!

  • I have been teaching Evernote (oh, how I adore Evernote!!) to freelancers and entrepreneurs for years. Check out my free Evernote training here! (in Norwegian, soon to be launced in English) or jump straight to the Evernote course here!
    Do yourself a favor – use Evernote to become as productive as possible!

What I love doing

Like, always

A woman of many passions:

  • Books. Oh, I looove books! (I'm a crime junkie)
  • Knitting (who should have thunk it!)
  • Cooking (especially Asian and Greek)
  • History - huge fan of the 1800s and the Roaring Twenties (especially hats!)
  • Football - former referee, player and coach
  • Languages - made it my career
  • Travelling - a constant itch


In da makin'

  • What I will spend the rest of my life doing: WRITING BOOKS

  • Currently writing on the first book in a historical crime novel series from the north of Norway

  • This is, strangely enough, also the only area in my life where I feel that I am not capable enough, talented enough, creative enough. Which is why I've made it my life mission to keep doing it. If it's this scary for me, it must be good!

My nearest and dearest

Work in progress

Married to the most crazy, funny, warmblooded, warmhearted and stubborn Greek. 

And mother to the most amazing six-year old who never stops mesmerizing me with his love, laughs and unlimited view of the world.
