I have received a lot of emails asking me about sharing more information about my life and what I do to achieve success doing what I do, so here we go 🙂 The “Life Of An Influencer” article and video is meant to give you an insight into the everyday life and reality of an influencer. The main video will come last at the end of the article.
Regardless of whether you work as an Influencers or a Coach, it’s good for you to know that both of those are considered to be Lifestyle Businesses. So what I do is a “crossover”. I decided to combine the 2 and it works amazingly well! In fact I started a certification program, so you can also join the program and become a Lifestyle Business Coach (eNtrepreneur) just like me. You will also become a part of my inner circle of Lifestyle Business Coaches once you join the program. Having said that I actually consider myself Lifestyle eNtrepreneur since I am a Lifestyle Business Owner and my main way of influencing is through coaching, which is the most popular type of lifestyle business in the world. In fact coaching is considered to be the most powerful way of influencing, as coaches influence millions of people every year and bring in several billions of dollars globally. Additionally I am an ambassador of some carefully chosen brands, whom I trust. In contrary of many influencers out there who market anything from a 5usd facemask which does more bad to your skin than good, to advertising unhealthy and harmful drinks or useless gadgets, which break within 5min… That is not what I am doing. I look at how I can create value either by creating products and services which are needed for some reason, or I find quality products or services, that match the type of work I do anyway (coaching) and collaborate with carefully chosen brands that fit into the picture. Let me give you an example. I knew that i was going to set up Lifestyle Business eCademy, so even before Lifestyle Business eCademy ever existed (other than in my plans) I already teamed up with a brand called Norwegian Couture to create the Cosmopolita Blazer, which has then became the dedicated blazer of the Lifestyle Business industry. Why? It’s because it fit into the picture, and because we developed the blazer with having the needs of the Lifestyle eNtrepreneur in mind. You can read more about the blazer here. This was just 1 example of many. I’ll post an article with all of the brands I represent soon, but that is not the main focus of this article.
So my everyday life varies A LOT, depending on what`s going on in my life both professionally and private to be honest. One of the great things about running a lifestyle business as an influencer is the freedom of organising my time the way it suits me, as long as I get things done (this is where many people fail, but for those of you who need support, you can always contact Lifestyle Business eCademy as we have several programs supporting you).
First of all my day usually starts with a warm shower and some breakfast around 7-8am. I enjoy walking around wearing my white morning gown at home in the morning. I think it`s really cozy and fluffy. I don`t exactly remember, which brand it is. I got it as a present from my mom. I love eating fruits, or even a good hearty traditional English breakfast with eggs, bacon and beans before I leave from home. I eat what I feel like, I don’t diet, except 99% of the time I eat very healthy food, which consists of about 70% veggies, 20% fruits and 10% meat and almost all organic. I usually put on some happy background music as it helps me get energised and wake up early in the morning. Sometimes I even do some early morning stretching / light yoga for 5-10 min, as it feels good for my body. Then I sit down and check my schedule for the day.
I don`t actually have a coffee machine at home on purpose. I know myself well enough to know that I`d start my day with coffee before breakfast, which is rather unhealthy, so it`s a conscious decision from my side not to have a coffee machine at home. I live in the city center, so there are about 10 coffee shops in the close vicinity of my apartment anyway.
Often times visiting a coffee shop is then the next thing I do after I get dressed. My favourite type of coffee is latte and I drink it with loads of organic milk. Once the waitress asked me, if I just wanted warm milk instead of the coffee…she made a good point 😉 I usually go to different coffee shops depending on my mood and I prefer going to different places as often as I can. Some days I prefer a coffee shop with music, whereas other days I need more quiet. Some days I prefer a crowded place and then the next day I just want to enjoy peace and quiet. It also depends on how focused I need to be depending on my goal for the day. I also prefer to hide myself, otherwise I end up talking with neighbours instead of working all day. I also realised that going to the same place can become boring over a longer period of time. Interestingly I’ve discovered that every coffee shops attracts a different clientele depending on their style and the type of people working there.
My day then continues either with some article writing, meetings, photoshoot and alike, depending on what is relevant for me that day or week. I prefer writing articles outside in the nature, if the weather allows. Check out this short video about me blogging at the beach (more videos bellow):
I try to do some form of training every day. I do my best to catch up with some members of my wonderful family and my close friends every day, even if it`s only through the phone.
Picture bellow: 3 generations of my beloved family cooking and making some trouble together in the kitchen. Please ignore the messy hair as we took the picture right after we got out of the swimming pool. #messyhairIdontcare Read more: Triple Trouble
I enjoy clean eating and cooking at home from scratch with use of fresh preferably organic vegetables, fruits and meat in the evenings most of the time. I usually watch or rather listen to a movie while I am cooking. I just have it running in the background. I like comedies, action and adventure films.
Some days I enjoy eating out at one of the local restaurants and other days I invite some people over for dinner.
The program for the evening varies a lot, too. I often get invited to interesting events, such as opening parties, film premieres, fashion shows, etc.

Otherwise I also like chilling at home, keeping busy with creative activities, or going for a walk in the evenings. I’ve noticed that I am working a lot more effectively if I keep a good level of work-life-balance. This helps to keep me and my mind fresh and honestly I can’t work or make good decisions when I am too tired.
Weekends are different from everydays. I try to avoid sitting by my laptop as much as possible. I prefer to find activities outside. One thing for sure is that I have to get better at weekend getaways. It`s because I live in the city center (which I love), but I also have the need for reconnecting with nature, enjoy fresh air, peace and quiet more often. It is kind of my new year resolution, but I still have to improve on it! This is the reason for me so much looking forward to browsing through the tips of weekend getaways by our travel bloggers
who are keen to share their travel experiences with us thorough the influencer platform and online magazine I’ve established.
Check out the video of one of my previous weekend getaways to the most exclusive luxury cabin at Hafjelltoppen, MOUNTAIN LODGE HAFJELL. This cabin is located in the Norwegian mountains. Hafjell is a ski resort and it`s a popular destination for those looking to enjoy skiing, fresh air and outdoor activities:
The cabin is also called “Hafjell`s beauty”. It is being managed by luxury real estate agent Øyvind Olstad. Check out the website of the cabin: Lunnstadbrinken 41 . The cabin can be rented both for shorter and longer periods either by dialling +47 900 80 228 or by emailing Øyvind at email@example.com
I also like seasonal events. Check out this Halloween party of all times: Halloween Ball of Nightmares.
