ABOUT

THE TIME ALCHEMIST

Hi, it’s me – Monique Lindner. 
You may have seen or heard of me (or not, that’s cool, too) and people may have referred to me as “The Yellow Lady” or “The Pineapple Lady” – well I am still obsessed with both of them – but I have made the conscious decision to choose my own label:
The Time Alchemist. 

On this page, I want to share a bit about my background and why this “label” is simply the best for me 😉

How dying – saved my life.

I was 19 years old and just got home from one of my jobs. Yes – one of them. I am going to university fulltime (40hrs/week) but besides my course, I have 3 jobs that cover another about 100hrs/week.
The other 20hrs are for sleep. Per week. 

I know this seems to be impossible but for a good 6 years this was my life, and it started when I was 13 years old with jobs on the side. By the time I was 15 I had 3 jobs besides school and didn’t sleep more than 2ish hours a night. Who needed sleep anyways, I was riddled by horrendous nightmares as a kid so, I’d happily live without it. 

Until that one faithful day – I was 19 and just came home from my second job, ready to make a ham&cheese toast (my go-to student meal, besides spaghetti or potatoes & sour cream). 

I am in my living room, when a migraine attack hits me. I forgot to tell ya, I was born with some real health challenges: a kidney failure & a damaged nervous system that resulted in migraines, epileptic seizures and later nerve pain. 

 The migraine turned into an epileptic seizure, forcing me to call my parents, asking for help, an ambulance and telling them “You have 5 minutes, I don’t think I can make it through this one!

When my parents arrived, and later the ambulance, I was already on the way out. All I remember is, that the world around me suddenly turned black – not the black I have known from all of the plenty of times when I fell unconscious, no. Black. So black that I felt as if I was falling through my body… 

Until the world around me suddenly turned white – way too white, bright like the LED lights in a hospital – white. 

My heart had stopped beating. I have left my body & was clinically dead. For about 25 seconds
(as my doctor declared the next day). 

 

I died – of a cardiac arrest by age 19. Why?
Because I overworked, stayed in toxic environments for way too long, didn’t listen to my body, didn’t sleep, and didn’t have any boundaries nor values
(even though my 19-year old would try to tell you differently). 

Waking up, the first heart beat was one of the most painful things I experienced in many ways. 

It was physically painful to feel my heart beat again after it already tapped out. The fist beat felt like a ton of bricks hit my chest. It was spiritually painful as I have just experienced another dimension, being out of body and I KNEW I am not on the right path, I am wasting my life and I am not good about it either. It was painful mentally because I truly believed I was invincible – and while I still didn’t die (phew!) this was a big hit to my ego. 

 

In the years to come I made it my purpose to find ways to work in my ways, breaking society’s rules, swimming against every current possible (quite literally, too), designing a life and business that works for me – and finally sharing all of what I have learned!

With you, so you can skip to the good part (and please skip the cardiac arrest, too) of designing your business & life of your wildest dreams – without having to make all of the mistakes along the way!

Monday morning. 6am.

You are waking up, your eyes burning from exhaustion, you make coffee and swear that today, you won’t check your e-mails and messages until you are fully in your … oops.

Don’t worry. You are not alone.
Most entrepreneurs love their business, but it’s also their biggest energy vampire in life. Not only does it swallow all of your time, but it also guilt-trips you into letting boundaries slip, feeling in a constant rush, not taking care of yourself outside of work… let’s not even look at your social life.
You tried it all – but the ‘gurus’ one way of doing things never really worked – 

That’s why I created a different solution, a framework that can be individualised & creates actual results.

“Every piece of advice I’ve received has been right on the money”

Running your own business isn’t easy. There are always a bazillion things trying to stop you from being successful (like, hiring risks… productivity killers… and at times, your own headspace.)

When I face one of these, I bring them to Monique. I’m yet to ever have her “stumped”.

She’s regarded as the best high-performance coach for good reason. Every piece of advice I’ve received has been right on the money…

so yeah, I recommend getting as close to Monique as you can.

“She has a way of really seeing deep into you as a human being”

I went into the big move session for help with clarity on vision goals and to get in what I do as a marketing coach to the next level because whether we realize it or not, we all have limits and ceilings and walls that close in.

… And Monique is truly gifted in how she does that. She has a way of really seeing deep into you as a human being and just calling you out on what’s actually holding you back.

I was bombarded with so much value in the session. It was it was Outstanding, outstanding.
