Hello there, nice to meet you!

I am Gila a marketing- and creative business coach always trying to live the best creative life. My roots are British and German  and this mixture might be the reason for a constant twinkle in my eye and lots of positivity whilst working on my projects. After many years of experience in Marketing & Brand Management at a global brand and becoming a mother I felt it was time to focus on doing what I really love and what I am passionate about. TBH I didn’t enjoy the marketing world as it was when I was working there. I could’t see determination, passion, creativity…

Living my own story and the best creative life is much harder than my former marketing job but definitely not as hard as giving up on coffee and pastry.

Years ago when I started my marketing experience I would have never thought that creating my own

message and building my dream business would take time and a considerable experience of being deep down in the ditch with projects that didn’t work, failed or jobs that turned out not to be what I wanted and dreamed of. I´ve lived through all the feelings of uncertainty, self doubts, financial dependence, rejection and invested a lot of time into creating my dream business with a story that is 100 percent me. But it was all worth it. And you can do it too.

So now I am here for you and together we can simplify marketing and make it a language easy to understand and apply to your business. Together we can create a message that makes your people stop, listen, think and react. No matter how small or big your business is we work out a plan that is just right for you in order to grow, be authentic and happy with what you do!



I would like to help and inspire you to unfold your creativity and define your goals and dreams. Your message is the center of gravity. 


Nowadays it is truly important to use our resources in a reasonable way. This includes our marketing activities as well as our shopping or travels.

Working with small brands and start ups has tought me how to focus on minimalism and using what is there. Not all brands have a big marketing budget and I like using what is there. And in addition it protects our environment if we include sustainability to our way of life. In privat and business.


Many practices, especially in online marketing, are designed to grow rapidly earn fast money and give you quick wins. Further they speak a language that hardly anyone apart from marketing departments can understand. (One of my specialities is to decode the often complicated marketing language.) This you will not find when working with me. Luring customers and giving false promises is, in my opinion, not the way to build up a successful long term and authentic story for you and your business. We want to build up a long term and passionate relationship with our dream people in a simple and understandable way.

  • Just a girl with an umbrella. No tricks , no forced perspective, no photoshop, not a surprise really- how about that. I even dared to change my profile pic. What a rebel I am.
Oh and who also always has to think of Jules @thisisjules seeing those rainbow brollies 🙋🏼‍♀️
Have a happy Saturday night. Hope it’s a good one.
  • Struggling with the caption tbh. I wanted to say something like „don’t forget to play“. But who am I telling you what to do so here I sit with no clue 🤷🏼‍♀️ then I thought of a few posts I saw this week asking „why are you here“ or „was that it, instagram“? And it made me think of the people I met here, the conversations that came up, incredibly wise people saying lots of important stuff and not forgetting the fun bits. Playing with perspective or the camera, colours and shape. Not sure if I would have started playing with my camera without this crazy app. So who is up for a little playtime, let’s play good old times ☺️ #whpplayful

And will only get out of the giant coffee cup once the first signs of spring are there and all grey has gone. So done with 🌪and💨and☔️
  • What to write after disappearing for 17 days (not even with a good excuse I think I’m just such a bad multitasker)? I guess hello would be a good start. So hello. Good to be back. Hope you are all well.
  • Come on spring make my heart sing (and please warm my fingers while taking pictures outside). Side note: during the take of this photo a wind blew my tripod over and smashed my camera 🤷🏼‍♀️
