Daniel Mackenbrock

As a successful entrepreneur, you do your job driven by passion; you look beyond your own backyard to inspire new clients and help them move on through your innovations.

I am fully convinced that every human being is carrying a distinctiveness in himself that is worth a business idea. When I believe that the path to become entrepreneur does not have to be an expensive and complicated one. To me it is a journey where you will find fulfilling every minute you spend on the project.

As a trainer and coach, I guide you in the process becoming an entrepreneur. Profoundly. Personally. And with a healthy dose of humor.

My roots go back to a German city called Paderborn. I am proud and happy to be born there. A strong catholic church, punk as the countermovement and their mutual acceptance characterize this city. It is a city where extremes and disparities are welcome.

When I do not work as a trainer, I am amateur photographer, backpacker and lateral thinker. I enjoy after-work pints in the sun, cozy evenings with good music in the dark, cycling, to swim in public pools at night, hiking in forests, to go crazy in the living room together with my girlfriend, pillow fights, to philosophize together with friends and poetry.

What others like about me: enthusiasm, humor, flexibility, authenticity, attentiveness and courage. What I do not like about myself: The tendency to brood over something and the negative characteristics of self-doubt.

Chemistry Check

A check list can never be a substitute for the personal exchange of expectations. There are certain criteria however where my trainings and coachings are grounded in.
Do the following statements match your mind-set?

  • I want to combine work and passion.
  • I want to develop or discover a business idea through which I can express my own personality and innovative thoughts.
  • I want to be able to enjoy the process of learning and I am open-minded about humorous and ironical inputs.
  • I want to inspire and move people through my business idea.
  • I am looking for an experienced trainer and coach that will guide me individually rather than relying on a “one-size-fits-all-approach”.
  • I not only make the trainer/coach responsible for my learning process but also myself.
  • In settings that feel safe to me I am willing to talk about my feelings.

I asked some of my former clients to characterize themselves.
