Anne Kristine Bolø

 Anne Kristine Bolø is a coach, historian, storyteller and writer.

Through twenty plus years and more than eight thousand career-counselling sessions, she has insisted on laughter and playfulness as an essential platform for creating change and achieving lifegoals.

Her many clients have learned that fun is serious business, along with micro-changes, beauty, imagination, play and no-bullshit accountability.

Exploring what brings a smile to your face and morphing this into small everyday steps (Cha-Cha!) is important to Kristine, who finds it impossible to prosper on hard discipline and oats alone.

Kristine lives by what she preaches and wholeheartedly welcomes any opportunity for thinking up new ways to motivate and drive joyful growth in both herself and her clients.

Kristine was born and raised in Greenland under the Northern Lights, in the company of laughing people and ALMOST next to bears. In her own words, this is “The Secret Sauce.” Don’t ask. She now lives in Denmark.

Triin Uustalu

Triin Uustalu

It is difficult to describe who Triin Uustalu is. She has worked as a professional programmer but has also dedicated her life to learning to know the real world, human soul and little things in life.

Her inner child has been her life-long companion, urging her to explore new and exciting themes. Inspired by it, she has learned glass cutting, growing watermelons, smelting and forging iron smelting, weaving on the loom, the dialect of doves, woodworking, ice-skating (something she disliked as a child), horseback riding, silversmithing, welding and more.

She also built a small treehouse (her children applauded to that), a brick stove, made furniture, many lamps, and other wonderous things. She discovered that there is much more to all of these adventures than just technical aspects, so she has written several manuscripts about them.

Triin lives with her children in a small village in Estonia, works as a robotics teacher, is the creator behind Magpie Mill Jewelry and writes about discovering the world.
