Happy Birthday, Blog!

It’s a fact! Time flies! This Leadership & Life blog has been live for one year! One year ago, I was living the happy aloha life on Maui. It was family time, yoga, windsurf and blogging 24/7.

I remember, the evening I shared my first post. It felt like drinking a mixture of the sweetest berries and tabasco! Sharing thoughts and experiences is a funny-scary feeling!

Today, 365 days later, it’s time for a celebration for this little one year old.

My reason for starting this blog, was that I wanted to share some experiences and advices to people enjoying the spring of their careers. It soon became clear to me, that I also wrote to people who are searching for more or struggling with their motivation.

In addition, I wanted to share travel advices to the active family.

Seriously, it’s possible to have a career and time for both family and yourself.

When you lean in, be prepared for a punch or a lot of new insight and relations! I have received both. To my surprise, writing has been an energy well for myself. I have had to face challenges and develop myself in many areas!

What’s next for Leadership & Life?

I always have a lot of ideas. Only half of them are realized, but that’s good enough for this working twin mom.

I will continue to write every week. In addition, these days, I have fun with my Snapchat, username ceciliaflatum.


Somewhere down the road, there are some plans about a YouTube channel. And then I have my secret TEDx Be the Change plan. I hope to bring it to life over the next 12 months!


Love you all! Have a fantastic weekend! And please share, if there is a topic that you want me to write about! I would ever so grateful!

Cecilia :*

Time for a celebration!
