About us


I´m an active and world travelled German woman in her 50s. I have a huge passion for animals and exploring new parts of the world. Being a travel agent in the 1980s and a sales manager in the 1990s I can really tell many stories.

Close to the Baltic sea I own an appartement in an historic builing where I return to if I´m not somewhere in the world. I love to travel and work with my laptop from other places in the world to get out of the daily routine 😉 and be connected to animals and nature.

As a horse rider and ex owner of a horse, dogs, cats and rabbits I am used to living with animals, and giving them care and much love. I have a driving license and I’m able to drive cars, motorbikes & small vans without damaging driving left or right.

From 2020 to 2023 I traveled in Europe with a mobile home and combined House Sitting, helping and online working on 4 wheels ;-). Now that the world is back open to travel I sold my camper and travel around the globe with public transport again.

Some more “private” details for you:

  • Self-employed since 2003. I travel the world due to my jobs and speak Spanish and English quite well.
  • I grew up with cats and dogs, horses and small animals. I communicate well with animals (and even seem to speak their language) which makes it easy for me to handle them. I did a one year course in alternative medicine and I have found that this has helped me to treat animals through energy work and homeopathy in case they need support.
  • In 2000 I had my own horse in a private stable. I took care of her for 2 years by doing all the stable work, feeding and riding. Sadly she died as she was very old. I go cross country trail riding all over the world since many years.
  • As vegetarian I like fresh vegetable ;-). I´m a good gardener as I grew my own veggies for many years.
  • In my free time I love to cruise with my Suzuki Burgmann Scooter or go for sailing on the lakes or the ocean. I love diving, sailing, swimming, Yoga, ballroom dancing.

My professional online work:

I started my first contact back in 2003 with the German network XING. Since this time the use of Business Networks and the amazing ability to communicate with people all over the world has started a new and exiting journey for me that never ends.

In 2008 I started my first online training. Short after that more business contacts requested inhouse group training. In 2009 LinkedIn came into my life and I jumped at the opportunity to build networks with other professionals all over the world. Every year I learned more about how dynamic this form of communication can be when used for professional purposes.

Today I´m a Business Network Trainer for LinkedIn in Europe and across the globe. I deliver online group training sessions for Sales, Marketing & HR Professionals.


I’m Merlin, and yes that really is my name! I am in my early fifties and love to live a healthy lifestyle that includes mind, body and spiritual wellbeing. In my early twenties I lived in Israel for a year, also travelling to Egypt and lots of other European destinations. Later on I also lived in Malta and travelled a lot in North America. I now live in rural Herefordshire in England enjoyed beautiful countryside and country life, when I am there!

I have a varied career starting in sales and then retail management I gained lots of experience on have to deliver great service to customers. Then I began teaching and coaching others on how to be great leaders and human resource professionals. After some life changing events I began a more spiritual path that has led me to write and publish a book and complete my PhD in Metaphysics. Now I do spiritual life coaching supporting individuals and groups with personal and spiritual development.

I have a driving license and can drive cars and vans on both the left and right side of the road!

Animals have always been an important part of my life, as a child my mother breed Persian cats and later I shared my life with cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters and tropical fish. Animals were always a part of my family, and I experienced such important relationships with them and their individual personalities.  My feelings towards animals were a strong factor in my decision to become vegetarian, since 1993.

I love being in nature and enjoying what the earth has created, I also love yoga, going to the gym and cooking. I had lots of fruits in my garden have made lots of jams and chutneys in the past.
