The car that was not a car

Posted by juttajerlich on 16. May 2017

or … getting into the driver seat!

Jutta Jerlich & Kane MinkusI think we all know this … feeling like you are not in the driver seat of life.

Is someone else driving?

Is some kind of robot controlling the direction (and you do not find the Stop button)?

Are the circumstances or things in your environment controlling the car?

Whatever it is in your life – I recommend you to get out of it and start creating your own reality.

One of a Kind Expert

Posted by jjerlich on 4. May 2017

It was about a year ago that I first met Kane Minkus in a short introduction event in Basel. As a digital expert I always remember where I got to know about the event – I clicked on a Linkedin ad. Really good that Linkedin knew I was in Basel at that time. :-)

Jutta Jerlich and Kevin Harrington

Long story short:
Since the first time I spoke to Kane a year ago lots of changes happened. First of all personal development led me to take decisions differently. Most of all the incredible network and people I am now connected and collaborate with.

… No, it is not just about taking fotos with famous people – here I am with Kevin Harrington, the guy from the US Television  Show Shark Tank. I did have the opportunity to speak with Kevin in person and enjoyed meeting him.

I want to express my joy that I know Kane and Alessia who you will get to meet if you join them at the next upcoming “Start At The Top” program.

Yes, they are coming again to Switzerland and Yeah !! Germany & Austria as well. Here are the dates and time – just click on the pic or your city and sign up for the FREE event.

It is so much worth your time and it will change your life.

Dates to join Kane Minkus SATT

A little MORE about Kane

Kane & the Industry Rockstar team have been teaching the worlds brightest business owners how to really make a difference and create a legacy in their industry.

With 30 years old he had launched over 24 different companies, taking 5 of them to multi million dollar and multi international success. Learning a few things from a guy like that is an opportunity you should not let pass by.

At the same time he stayed a person you can talk to – it is so much fun to see him on stage and work with him.

Will I meet you in the Industry Rockstar Community of Holistic Entrepreneurs and Business Owners soon?

All the best

Jutta

FUN.Basel Vol VI – Finding …

Posted by jjerlich on 12. April 2017

Easter Edition 11.4.2017 

I really enjoyed this particular #FuckUpNightBasel‬ at Launchlabs. Here are my reasons why

  • the 3 stories were all presented in a really funny way by exceptional speakers
  • we really enjoy this great location = Launchlabs is the space for creative event formats that strive to introduce new ways of thinking. A huge thanks to our hosts.
  • we had a great crowd of newcomers and repeated delinquents. Thank you all for coming!

A huge Thank you goes to our speakers  – they are a crucial factor for setting the spirit of the evening.

Thank you … for sharing your stories:

It is a book to read in an evening (not a book with 500 pages that stays in the bookshelve). Thanks for the insights – here is where you can get it

 

A note for us all

Becoming visible with your expertise is definitely not something easy. The challenges we face today demand that we all stop hiding. We need to have each others backs and come together as a community to solve the problems of our societies.

Be part of this community!
We are looking forward to see you soon – June 22, 2017

Simple solutions

Posted by jjerlich on 2. November 2016

wp_20160720_009When you find yourself in a difficult situation or facing a complex problem, others always find it simple and easy to solve. You get suggestions on how to solve the problem right away.

Do you know that feeling? I do.

Sometimes we even know the solution when we actually had time to think about it. It is not so easy though to apply your inner wisdom. It needs time and space to stay in touch with your inner voice and take decisions accordingly. A third person to sort out the conversations between you and yourself makes a huge difference.

I recently met Martin & Stefan who have the gift to help people doing just that: Sorting out what they already know, face the unknowns and manifest your inner powers through decisions and actions. Sounds too fluffy?

  • Martin is a master in guiding people to allow themselves to surface the knowledge you already have to create the life you want.
  • Stefan is the left side of the brain and a capacity in putting processes in place to grow your business, ideas and skills.

I convinced them to share their methods and exercises beyond their normal 1:1 setting. They are holding a very first 1-Day workshop in Basel on 12.11.2016.

They gave me the gift of 15 special workshop tickets to forward to my personal network which I am happy to offer you – just contact me.

If the date does not fit into your schedule or you are not in Basel but you still would like to know more about their activities, please leave them your email on their website and you will receive updates on their upcoming programs in different cities and online.

Happy to see you next Saturday or connect with you online.

Inspirational regards

Jutta

Please write this down

Posted by juttajerlich on 28. August 2016

When you hear these words, it means that the following statement is important.
Really important. It also means that you are most likely listening to Kane Minkus :-)

Alessia and Kane Minkus

Since Friday the 3-Day START AT THE TOP Seminar is held in Zurich, Switzerland. The task and goal = empowering business owners to realize their dreams and impact their communities.

It is actually quite funny how these words “please write this down” actually make people write them down. School has engraved the words so deeply into our brains that as soon as the words are said, the intended action follows. Here are a few examples:

  • A business is about helping people.
  • In business positioning is everything.
  • Ideas are worthless – Execution is everything.

Knowing how to translate these statements (most of us know) into practical actions is the key. The key to successful business results.

Today is the 3rd day – TRANSFORMATION DAY.

Magic has been happening all along for the participants: changing mindsets, understanding growth insights and realizing how powerful networking opportunities can actually be when really used.

It is great meeting so many Swiss based entrepreneurs.

Looking forward to further connecting with you …

Summer Edition @FUN.Basel Vol II

Posted by jjerlich on 8. July 2016

After a successful event it is always the question if this can be continued, repeated in the same manner. I am happy to say that the second #FuckUpNight‬ in #‎Basel‬ was another inspiring evening with 3 stories from our speakers, all having worked in the corporate world before.

We spoke about age, actual books you can touch, word of mouth and digital marketing channels … and are curious on what our audience took with them as the one learning from the evening.

Thanks Isabelle for the great collaboration and appreciation we share – proud that the FUN.Basel evenings are our joint creation.

The New School of Business Rules

Posted by jjerlich on 19. June 2016

Number 1 Skill business owners and entrepreneurs needed to master right now in this chaotic economy

Times are tough … you’re probably finding it’s costing you more now than ever to win a new client, your overheads are likely going up and up, budgets are being cut left, right and center, consumer sentiment is down and bankruptcies and financial stress are on the rise.

networking

If you asked me what I thought was the Number 1 skill business owners and entrepreneurs needed to master right now in this chaotic economy, where turbulence and strife just seems to go on and on … I could give you a very long answer or a quick recommendation as follows.

When I met Kane from the Industry Rockstar® team the first time, I was not sure at all … I thought that I would first listen to what his program is about.

It was a free 2 hour workshop in Basel that got me started … the experience was just unforgettable and … things have changed since then.

Next week this same door opens again in Geneva, Lausanne and Zurich – in your city between June 21st to 27th with the opportunity to join the August 26th-28th Start At The Top 3 Day weekend.

Someone who shares their business growth secrets, experiences and network has a worth beyond millions of dollars. 
I strongly recommend you to discover this LIVE yourself

A WARNING
Sometimes people don’t value what they get for FREE. I chose to pay attention. The skills they teach will definitely complement what you have and get you what you need to master your business …

Hope to meet you – in Basel or later on in Zurich – in person …

The Power of One

Posted by juttajerlich on 30. April 2016

The April days from 22 – 24th 2016 I was in Zurich at Swissôtel for the Start at the Top Live Workshop with Kane & Alessia Minkus.

My decision to join was based on the personality of Kane and how he managed to create a real group connection between the participants after only 2 hours. Read the rest of this entry »

The Art of Learning from Mistakes

Posted by juttajerlich on 19. April 2016

Book your seatWeil Fehler zum Erfolg führen
Because errors are on your way to success
Parce que l’erreur est source de succès

We cordially invite you to

the first ever FuckUpNight in Basel

12.May 2016

The Basel region is Switzerland’s most dynamic and innovative economic area. Located at the heart of Europe, right next to Germany and France, is is also known for the incomparable art and architecture scene and its lively approach to life.

Trilingual – English, German and French.

Here are the links you need for more details, reserving your seats, joining the FUN.Basel community to engage in your City and be ready for future dates.

Why are we doing this?

————– Take the time to think about this ————–

How do you define success?
How do you look at mistakes and errors?

… exactly … it is a question of definition and interpretation.

A short research leads to the definition of a “fuckup” as a serious or severe mistake. A quick look at history of the word “failure” shows that the origin of its meaning was “non-occurrence”, it’s use changed over time.

Looking at the word FAIL as an acronym is my choice:

FAIL = First Attempt In Learning

Etwas … im Entstehen

Posted by juttajerlich on 5. April 2016

Komponisten Trio

v.l.n.r. Raitis, Andreas und George

Seit ein paar Monaten habe die Ehre und Möglichkeit, mit 3 musikalischen Künstlern und sehr interessanten Individuun zu arbeiten.

:: Raitis Grigalis
:: Andreas Schwarz
:: George Fleury

Es entsteht ein Projekt … das junge Talente fördern wird. Das Komponistentrio macht das heute schon, möchte die jungen Stimmen so richtig zur Geltung kommen lassen.

Ein Projekt auf die Beine bringen kostet viel Energie, … es gibt immer wieder Rückschläge, vor allem wenn es anfänglich keinen direkten Rückfluss für die investierte Arbeit gibt.

Doch ehrenamtliche Leistungen sind die Basis unserer Gesellschaft und der Anfang vieler Erfolgsgeschichten. Projekte werden erwachsen und stark, sie werden ausgezeichnet, wenn ein Tiefpunkt auch überwunden werden kann.

An so einem Tiefpunkt – auf den Wind warten … helfen die 15:24 Minuten mit Adam Grant, zu verstehen, wie solche “Original thinkers”, wie Ihr selbst seid, funktionieren …

 

Die Frühling ist da und bringt neue Energie …

Besuch beim “Cirque Noël”

Posted by traudljerlich on 11. January 2016

CIRQUE NOEL 6.Jänner 2016

Jedes Jahr unternehme ich mit meinen Großnichten und Großneffen in den Weihnachtsferien etwas Gemeinsames. Sie kommen dann aus verschiedenen Himmelsrichtungen zum vereinbarten Treffpunkt – diesmal die Landeshauptstadt Graz – mit dem Zug, was allein schon was Besonderes ist. Wir beginnen mit einem Essen beim McDonald’s – ein Vergnügen für die “Kinder” im Alter von 6 bis 15 Jahren – eine Herausforderung für mich.

wir alle

Dieses Jahr habe ich den Cirque Noël unter der Regie von Adrian Schvarzstein ausgewählt, ein “Ein Zirkus-Theater Stück” wie er es selbst nennt.

Eine zauberhafte Geschichte mit so vielen Eindrücken, dass man sie zweimal sehen sollte, um ja nichts verpasst zu haben.

Nina, 14 Jahre alt und unsere Fotografin hat stimmungsvolle Bilder gemacht, die ich hier einfüge. Saskia, 11 Jahre alt und Moritz, 8 Jahre alt haben ihre Eindrücke sogar niedergeschrieben!

… mit Ihren eigenen Worten:

Moritz mit Akrobatin beim Tanz

 

Moritz tanzt auf der Bühne

 

 

 

 

 

“Am 6.1.2016 sind wir mit dem Zug nach Graz gefahren. Als erster sind wir zum McDonald’s gegangen um Mittag zu essen. Es waren drei Erwachsene und zehn Kinder.
Nach dem McDonald’s sind wir zum Zirkus Cirque Noël spaziert. In diesem Zirkus gibt es keine Tiere. Die Zirkuscrew bestand aus Musikern, Schauspielern, Akrobaten und Artisten. Die Vorstellung war spannend und lustig zugleich. Am Ende des Stückes durften einige von uns auf die Bühne.
Es war wie jedes Jahr ein ganz toller Ausflug.”

Saskia, 11 Jahre

“Am Anfang war ein nackerter Mann, der Cello gespielt hat. Wie er gegangen ist haben alle seinen Popo gesehen.
Es war so schön, dass ich auf der Bühne hab helfen dürfen. Ich hab mit Adrian an einem Seil gezogen und künstlicher Plastikschnee ist auf die Bühne gefallen. Dann hab ich noch mit einer Frau getanzt, dafür hat mir Adrian seine Kappe auf den Kopf gesetzt. Saskia und Chloe haben dann auch mitgemacht.
Am Schluss haben wir uns mit allen Künstlern verbeugt.”

Moritz, 8 Jahre

Olivenernte 2015

Posted by traudljerlich on 16. November 2015

Gedanken von Traudl Jerlich

Karins Gedanken von 2014 zu folgen, die liebevollen Details und die Genauigkeikeit ihrer Beschreibung bringt jeden mitten ins Geschehen einer Olivenernte ohne Benutzung von Maschinen, also handverlesene Oliven für’s “Olio Extra Vergine di Oliva”.

Meine Bemerkungen zur heurigen Ernte sind viel prosaischer und ähneln einem Bericht mehr als einer Geschichte. Heuer starte ich mit Claudio und Karin die Erntesaison bei mildem sonnigen Herbstwetter und einer Ausbeute von 6 Kisten voller Oliven am ersten Abend. Wir sind stolz auf unsere Leistung und freuen uns bei einem Glas Rotwein auf den nächsten Morgen.

Die Sonne begleitet uns auch am zweiten Tag, die Bäume geben aber nicht soviel her und wir schaffen mit Mühe die 6 angepeilten Kisten. Claudio bringt die 12 Kisten am Abend in die Presse, Karin und ich genießen das Kaminfeuer, das Claudio fürsorglich für uns entfacht hat.

Die nächsten beiden Tage plagen wir uns mit Bäumen, die einfach nur wenige Oliven tragen, sodass wir uns mit insgesamt 9 Kisten begnügen müssen. Mein Arbeitseinsatz ist mit diesen 4 Tagen beendet, der Nachtzug bringt mich zurück in die Steiermark.

Die 3 Erntehelferinnen Hedda und Mona und  “Neuling” Angelika treten am nächsten Tag ihren “Ernteeinsatz” an und beenden die heurige Olivenernte. Das Ergebnis war zwar besser als im Vorjahr, die Menge hätte ruhig größer ausfallen können. Dafür ist aber die Qualität der Oliven hervorragend und freuen wir uns schon auf die Flaschen mit dem goldgrüngelben Inhalt.

IMG_8194                       am Werke                 

Auf ein Neues im nächsten Jahr!

New season – great ideas

Posted by juttajerlich on 1. November 2014

Vienna, 13.10.2014

WP_20140830_004The Creativity Engineering Course at the Vienna University of Technology is on again. After the traditional TEAM FINDING phase that takes place online and offline, teams have taken their seats.

This is the 8th year. Registrations keep on raising: this time we reached the mark of 250 which lead us to the highest number of projects and students in the course ever.

I am looking forward to working with the teams. It will be a challenge with such a large number of projects and students. A challenge that I am willing to take, asking for support and help from people interested in helping ideas to grow.

Interesting and diverse projects, this year almost all of them are based on IT or IT related technologies. We had an entertaining TEAM CASTING event with great discussion of the ideas and a rating from the entire class for each idea.

Discussed feedback from our session:
It would be great to have more input from students studying social sciences to complement the teams.

Therefore we are looking for

  • Students who want to join in and lend the teams a hand or ear
  • Educators who want to join in to discuss a collaborative approach for the next session

Here is a selection of the projects

:: Walking in the past        :: Coffee personality check        :: Awake Alarm

:: Multi-Codebar Reader         :: Digital legacy        :: Noise cancelling        :: Empathic phone

:: The Bridge        :: First aid furniture        :: Voucher app for charity        :: Order Button

Design technology to help us make better decisions

Posted by juttajerlich on 4. October 2014

I regularily read Dan Ariely`s Blog, I particpated in his MOOC and can only recommend everyone to do so. Why? It really helps you to understand human irrationality and why we repeatedly and predictably make the wrong decisions in many aspects of our lives.

This part of his latest blog articles about the Apple Pay question he answered is particularly interesting for the entire industry of technology and innovation. We need to think about designing technology in a way that helps us make better decisions.

oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

nonewwayDear Dan,

Apple recently announced Apple Pay, which will allow iPhone and Apple Watch users to simply wave their gadgets to pay for purchases. How might this technology change our spending habits? Could Apple Pay and other such hassle-free payment mechanisms (such as Amazon’s “1-click ordering”) lead us to spend more—particularly on stuff we don’t need?

—Nikki

The essence of payment is opportunity cost. Every time we face a purchasing decision, we should ask ourselves if getting this one thing is worth giving up the ability to purchase something else, now or in the future.

Different ways of paying make us think differently about those opportunity costs. For example, if we have $20 in cash in our pockets, we will have a hard time not thinking about opportunity cost. If we consider buying a sandwich, we realize that we won’t have money for coffee; if we get a cab, we realize that we won’t have money for dinner. But when we use a credit card or gift certificate, our thinking about opportunity cost will be less natural and prevalent—which means we’re likely to spend more without fully thinking about the consequences.

This is why the general answer to your questions is both yes and no. As you suggest, electronic payment mechanisms can easily lead us to think less about opportunity cost and spend more recklessly. But this doesn’t have to be the case. Electronic payment could be designed in ways that get us to more fully understand our opportunity costs and make more reasonable decisions. Apple Pay and the like could be game-changers, helping us think about our spending much more rigorously than we ever could with cash.

So the questions are: Who is designing these electronic wallets, and for what purpose? Will they be designed to get us to spend more money—or to help us make better decisions? Right now, electronic payments seem to be going down the path of less thinking and more spending—but I hope that at some point, some of the payment companies will change their approach, adopt the perspective of their users and offer electronic payment methods that help us make better financial decisions.

Start of the 2014 Creativity Engineering class

Posted by juttajerlich on 1. October 2014

October 1st is the day when the Creativity Engineering class starts every year. This one is the 8th time. The registrations for the class have been growing since the first time the class was offered. This year we received almost 250.  Thank you for your overwhelming interest.

Students interested come from various backgrounds and study focuses with national backgrounds from all over the European Union and a few from beyond.

The first phase is the IDEA and TEAM FINDING phase where people present ideas they would like to develop and find team members who want to join them on this path. This year we are running a pilot to check out if the use of the MakerSquare platform is useful for us.

Why do I decide to do this? I wanted to see how the this statement
“By bringing together teams of passionate, curious, like-minded people and enabling crowd-sourcing of under-utilized resources, we aim to create new paths towards innovation, discovery, and entrepreneurship.”
taken from the MakerSquare “What we do” page does really apply to reality.

The best is that feedback from all participants will be fed back to the MakerSquare developers team.

Excited to see how this will work out. A new adventure and twist to our pathway!

I am happy to have had Martin Asmus on my side to support such a large group of participants every year. Thank you very much, Martin.
This year I found another supporter, Carina Müller, who will be supporting the pilot with me.

All the best for the course, have fun in what you do!
