Here we sit down with Sevil to learn a bit more about her journey as a life and relationship coach.
Q. How did you get started?
Sevil: I achieved great success in my career while working as a manager in an international company. However, I always felt that something was missing. In my personal life, I longed for a fulfilling and meaningful relationship, but I was unable to find one. Constant disappointment and heartbreak had left me exhausted.
This led me to question the status quo and realize that life shouldn’t be this way. Determined to find a different path to happiness and success, I turned to the Universe for guidance. It was then that I discovered Gabriel Bernstein, my spiritual teacher, through videos on YouTube and was led to books on personal development that seemed to fall off the shelves.
This newfound passion led me to explore my manifesting power and delve deeper into spirituality. I read countless books, attended various pieces of training, and committed to daily meditation and Kundalini yoga. As a result, I began to manifest dream jobs, an amazing partner who is now my husband, and even lottery wins. People around me started to notice the changes in my life and began seeking my advice.
It became clear that I had found my calling – combining my analytical thinking as a Bachelor of Science in Management Engineering and MBA graduate with spirituality to help clients manifest their heart’s desires. I was thrilled to share what I had learned and experienced and it was incredibly fulfilling to see my clients’ lives transform in profound ways. Through my work, my clients received promotions, their anxiety levels decreased, and their relationships improved.
I strongly believe that when you discover your true calling, you simply cannot ignore it. You must follow it with passion and dedication.
Q. What was your biggest startup challenge? What steps did you take to overcome it? What did you learn?
Sevil: When you start your own business, you become your own boss, which can be incredibly satisfying but also presents a unique set of challenges. In particular, I want to talk about the difficulties you face in terms of performance and motivation.
In a corporate environment, goals are usually provided, and the days, hours, job titles, and responsibilities are clearly defined. On the other hand, when you become your own boss, you must make all the decisions and be your own motivator. This path can be lonely, as some may say.
When I first began my journey as an entrepreneur, most of my friends didn’t offer their support. Since they were working in a corporate environment, they didn’t grasp the distinctive difficulties that solopreneurs face. To find guidance and inspiration, I turned to business coaches and teachers and met fellow entrepreneurs during various training sessions. After almost ten years, these entrepreneurs remain my go-to sources of assistance and encouragement, and I am always ready to return the favor to them.
Q. What is the most memorable thing you’ve done since you started your business?
Sevil: In addition to being featured in various magazines, I have also been contributing to two of Europe’s most widely read newspapers. It all began with a single article I wrote seven years ago during winter break. The article was aimed at parents and offered tips on how to spend quality time with their children.
It quickly became popular and was shared thousands of times. I then wrote another article for the other newspaper, which was focused on Valentine’s Day and relationships. Once again, the article was read by thousands and opened doors for me to reach and help women from various countries.
I feel honored to receive messages from them, sharing how even just one sentence from my writing changed their lives. I have also had the opportunity to work with some of them one-on-one, and I have witnessed firsthand how their careers have improved after years of feeling stuck.
I have seen them manifest the relationships they always desired, and I have even been invited to their weddings. Nothing is more rewarding than helping people create their best lives.
Q. What is one book you recommend, and why?
Sevil: My teacher Gabrielle Bernstein wrote the book ‘Miracles Now,’ which is one of her New York Times Best Selling Books, and I highly recommend it.
It contains 108 techniques that can help uplift and raise your vibration.
You can choose your favorite techniques or close your eyes and pick a number to practice. Trust me, the exercise that resonates with you the most is the one you need for that day!
Q. In terms of legacy, what is the mark you’d like to leave on the world?
Sevil: I would love for my legacy to be an inspiration and to have helped awaken more and more people to their own power.
If you have a dream, it means that you have the ability to make it a reality. So never give up.
Q. In one sentence, what’s the best advice you’d give to someone just starting out on their entrepreneurial journey?
Sevil: “Always listen to your inner guide.” While there will be many people giving you advice and various ways to follow, it’s important to remember that what sets you apart and makes you unique is how you approach things in your own creative way.
So trust yourself and your instincts, and don’t be afraid to take risks and try new things that feel right to you.
