Here to reconnect you to your light-hearted, playful self.
First of all, thanks for your curiosity and interest in learning more about my story :)
Stefanierensink.com has burst onto the scene in October 2023 after I decided to quit my successful marketing agency, and I couldn't be more thrilled for what’s coming. Right now, I'm in the thick of it, fine-tuning the website and putting the finishing touches on what's going to be a super exciting program (seriously, it's going to be FUN! 😍).
You're among the first to hear about it, and I want to invite you to join The Waiting List, not only to be in the know about the official launch but also to snag some exclusive offers that will make your playful journey even more attainable.
Now, let me share a little more about myself and what's coming:
I'm here to help you connect with your playful, authentic, and creative self. I've personally experienced how this can lead you to a greater sense of joy, lightheartedness, and happiness in life. Over the years, I've collected many tools to connect with and evolve your playful self, and I'm passionate about sharing the lessons that I've learned. I strongly believe that playfulness and creativity are gifts inherent in all of us, much like muscles that can be nurtured and developed.
Documenting stories, sharing stories, and creating new things all bring me immense joy, and I've explored a wide range of creative avenues over the years, including photography, travel journalism, content creation, painting, and podcasting. Through all those experiences and business ventures, I've come to really embrace my own unique playful, soft and creative side.
However, like many others, I've also faced moments of feeling deeply misunderstood and struggled with the pressure to conform to external expectations. During most of my teens and twenties, I took myself and life way too seriously. I was a highly sensitive soul and grew up in an environment driven by fear, where I was often told to follow the rules without questioning things too much, to just be happy with what was, and to prioritize safety over adventure.
Nevertheless, I've always believed there was a different path waiting for me to be explored; I just needed to get out there and be daring. The challenges I've encountered have eventually become the driving force moving me forward on this playful journey and inspiring me to share what I’ve learned along the way.
In my view, a big chunk of feeling like you're thriving in life and work is all about strengthening your intuition, facing your fears, building personal resilience, reconnecting with your playful and creative self, and letting your imagination run wild. Besides that, you need methods that keep you away from procrastination and invite you to start doing (living!) and experimenting.
As time has gone by, I've come to deeply value the dance between staying true to my individual playful and creative self and working in harmony with the world around me, instead of pushing against it.
And while I firmly hold the view that all answers lie within you and that external help isn't always necessary, I also believe that having a supportive partner can get you to where you want to be faster. We all need some guidance at times. So that's where I come in. Through daily challenges (30-60 minutes) that you can do on your own, but with the option for extra one-on-one guidance, I'm here to be your guide and companion on this joyful path of self-discovery and genuine expression.
And just to be clear – I'm not claiming omniscience. I regard myself as a lifelong student and a guide in equal measure. I continue to evolve, just as you do. My aim is to share the lessons I've learned and the great tools I've acquired along the way, not as an all-knowing expert but as a fellow traveler on the playful journey, walking alongside you.
Whether you choose to engage in an online session, participate in a live event, or join The Online Program, you'll discover a supportive environment that welcomes all aspects of you. My commitment to nurturing this spark of playfulness and creativity extends through all offerings.
It's important to note that the initial phase (The Foundation) of The Online Program is inclusive and open to anyone who wishes to evolve their playful and creative selves. The 2-Week Extension: Align Your Personal Brand is especially created for (aspiring) entrepreneurs and creators that want to align their personal brand according to their newfound insights.
Looking forward to welcoming you into the community,
Stefanie Annique Rensink
