About

Alix Rufas

I am currently expanding my coaching business, which is the 7th business venture I start and build a team around.

To date, I have individually coached 300+ incredible leaders around the world. I have led 10 leadership retreats. And given 50+ public talks. I have also created multiple online programs and transformative digital experiences.

I am also an active mentor to the next generation of female leaders at Female Factor.

As well as an Executive Contributor for Brainz Magazine.

I am incredibly passionate about empowering humans around the world to thrive on their full professional potential.

Some other things I've done

  • Started my first business as a kid, built a team around it in my teenage years, started selling to shops around Europe (making profit) and won a Young Entrepreneurs prize offered by Deloitte.
     

  • Developed a training program for The International Labour Organization (United Nations). The program served to train women in developing countries in economic empowerment and entrepreneurship.
     

  • Worked for various universities around Europe and a Netherlands-based start-up accelerator.
     

  • Was a mentor to girls in developing countries via Girlz, For The World.
     

  • Grew this coaching business for the first 2 years as a digital nomad, touring Europe, Latin America and Bali as I gave workshops and talks in the cities I visited.

My focus today

 

I am incredibly passionate and committed to humans connecting to the absolute best version of themselves. I focus on empowering the people I work with to connect to their most fulfilling professional life. And feel expansive, energized and thrilled in the process.

 

It is my personal belief that, when people connect to their most fulfilling professional path, they are in tune with what they came here to do, and are more likely to create the best positive impact in this world.

 

I do this work in many different formats (talks and workshops, online masterminds, weekend intensives, 1:1 coaching).

Drives me

What

I had my first wake-up call in my teens. After years in school trying to be the best at everything (even in the million extra-curricular activities I did), my body said stop. Around the age of 16, my mental, physical and emotional health hit rock-bottom. I spent about 2 years until I was 18 in and out of hospitals. After that, I learned to slowly re-build my mental, physical and emotional health from scratch.

After I finished my Master studies (MSc), I worked for about 2 years as a full-time employee (with lots of overtime) and by the end, I was about to hit that burnout wall for a second time in my life. I quit on time and re-designed my life completely.

Since early 2018, I have been travelling the world while growing various businesses. I live by design. For me, this means that my (professional) life is designed fully in line with my personality and purpose.  This sense of alignment creates incredible synergy and momentum. 

I am committed to empowering those who work with me to do the same. To epically create their best, most energizing professional lives so they can thrive on their full potential.
