In July we joined a workation in Poland, which was very exciting in so far as when we hear workation we usually think of exotic places. Bali, Thailand, Spain… so we were very excited to get to know Poland in a very different way.
First of all: Thank you dear Markus for bringing so many incredibly great people together and being one of the best hosts we know Markus organizes every year the Freedom Business Conference in Hamburg.
This year he asked in his network and many speakers if they would like to participate directly in a workation in Poland.
Thanks to Jim, for your hospitality, the incredibly great food from Anja, you and your sweet family have truly created a beautiful and inspiring place where you can only feel comfortable.
What is a workation and what do you do?
Different people come together for a workation, you work together either on your own business or on your personality. The time consists of work=work and vacation=holiday.
Of course you don’t have to work on the business, you can also take a complete break and let yourself be inspired by the others.
What workations and educational leave have to do with each other, you can read here.
So what happened for a week.
A castle for our own
In a castle which is a life project or much more a generation project of Jim and his family. Wonderful, spacious, winding, historic, 16th century ceiling painting, including chapel, many animals (cows, ducks, chickens, pheasants, turkeys…), workshops… a few participants came with the camper and stayed overnight in their campervan.
All the others were distributed in the castle, after a few times you got the hang of it.
Every day there were inspiring talks like:
The lecture by Melanie “Business with structure”, recommended by the way mega. No matter where you are with your business, Melanie ensures with her franchise system that your business can run without you. Smart hm? Exactly how it is! By the way, Melanie is one of the smartest people we know. Autodidact and just a great personality.
Of course Marco Lachmann-Anke’s lecture “Finanzielle Intellgenz – 18 konkrete Wege aus dem Hamsterrad” (Financial Intelligence – 18 concrete ways out of the hamster wheel) was very well received, you’re welcome to drop by the Geldhelden, where you’ll find topics for every status (whether beginner or advanced).
The 12-week implementation coaching is currently running. Because many consume knowledge, on-line courses and seminars without end, but do not create it then at the end nevertheless to come into the conversion.
Times what completely different was the Biohacking lecture and the WimHof breath methods of Robin. It was exciting to see what can be done with the simplest means and above all with the right breathing. There is also a great podcast by Robin, he recorded a podcast during the work.
For goose bumps Fleur provided, which provided beside piano together with Melanie, Flo and Jannis for mad singing. By the way, she is also a wedding singer, I can warmly recommend her. If you’re looking for someone to sing at your wedding or want to surprise someone, you’ve come to the right place.
The stateless “Tax Lecture” was of course not to be missed. Even though we’ve seen the lecture several times, it’s always mega exciting and you’ll get to know a bit more every time. Thank you Christoph!
Q&A with Lars from Solidmind, scaling and team building, unfortunately we missed that :/
Till, Timo and Basti, Expert Business Session, Online Course and Funnel
Sam Feuerstein and Nina Engert on “Expert status with your own book – visibility, sales, leads & upsells”, I don’t want to spoil, but what the two of them do is simply brilliant. If you want to have a great speaker on your stage with comedy effect, book them!
Great talk by Basti Barami about tools that make your life easier. Flo has summarized this very well,
Thank you, Basti. By the way, Basti has produced a mega cool video course for everyone who wants to start with the Airbnb Business or want to automate their Airbnb Business (to be found on the Officeflucht page but in german only).
No Speed Dating – Just Speed Coaching
There were speed coaching sessions, great yoga sessions with Nico, freeletics sessions with Marco and me, a beautiful birthday ritual for Flo, inspiring conversations, funny photo sessions of me with Nick, Till, Nico, Maja, Jannis…, cash-flow games, tennis and table tennis tournaments, campfires…
If you also want to be a Dino Mates model, just beep;) I will travel soon with the complete collection and like to photograph you, thanks Flo, such a great idea! thanks to all for the wonderful week, we miss you.
Only one video course is missing what to do when you miss people… (who said that)? Now I’ve probably forgotten half of it, but the week was unbelievable!
Hopefully you have now got a little insight into the process of a workation, we can only recommend it again and again!
Before I forget that: Every year Markus organizes the Freiheitsbusinesskonferenz in Hamburg, where you can experience brilliant speakers live.
