Helping to educate thousands on how to get behind the steering wheel of their own life, maximize their potential, and create the life of their dreams by applying her famous life hacks. In my opinion, she falls in the same category as Bene Brown, Tony Robbins, and Byron Katie. Her new book ‘The Power Of Choice’ is no different from her previous work.

About me

As a child, best-selling author and business coach Kelly Weekers (33) was already intrigued by why people act the way they do. “I was an introvert and always observing others,” Kelly explains. Her interest in human behavior led her to choose a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Neuroscience.

For years, Kelly worked as a model alongside her studies, and in 2011 she even became Miss Holland and was a finalist in the Miss Universe pageant. “It was a nice experience. My childhood was not exactly filled with ups and downs, and modeling made me grow up a lot faster. I often traveled abroad and during that time, I discovered the impact of my own thoughts and the opinions of others on my self-image and on the choices I made in life. Those lessons are still valuable to me today.”

Kelly worked as a full-time model for about a year. “I went all-in, so that I could genuinely experience the life of a model. I decided that if it didn’t work out, I could always pick up my studies again. In the end, that mindset saved me, since I’ve always pushed myself to work hard. If I hadn’t thought it through the way I did, the modeling world would probably have crushed me.” In the end, modeling didn’t turn out to be the right environment for Kelly, and that’s when she decided to turn her passion into a career.

In 2011, she started working as a psychologist. “I gained loads of experience in no time, treating people with problems like burnout, panic disorders, anxiety and depression. And I noticed I quickly got results. I’m empathetic, but my coaching style is also straightforward and no-nonsense. Therapy can sometimes be a bit like a comfortable blanket and is supposed to be life-changing. Clients get an overkill of daily routines that take hours and are therefore not feasible. Taking small steps and offering perspective is more my style. You don’t have to change absolutely everything and immediately.”

Kelly helps her clients take back control of their lives. “The tips and tricks I used for people with burnout symptoms or who were suffering from depression also proved useful in my own life. Because of course, I too can feel stressed or have a bad day.” She compiled all her insights into the book Happy Life 365. A year later, the sequel Happy Lifehacks 365 was published. Both books became bestsellers. “Common sense is not common practice. We all know it’s healthy to go to the gym and to eat plenty of vegetables, but we don’t always feel like doing it. I try to motivate people to take small, attainable steps to become happier.”

In her latest book – another bestseller, The Power of Choice – she shares key insights and eye-openers based on her personal experience. “People often told me they were curious about how I dealt with things like motherhood, ambition, insecurity, and friendships. I didn’t want to write an autobiography and decided to focus on these important themes in my life in order to help my readers reflect on their own choices in life.”

It is Kelly’s most intimate book, in which she shares personal anecdotes about her own relationship and goes into how she struggled with motherhood and came to decide to break up with certain friends. “I prefer listening to someone who is also candid about the obstacles they have had to overcome. Since I dare to be vulnerable, people know they can be vulnerable with me as well.”

Meanwhile, Kelly has sold over 200,000 books, founded her own publishing house, and with her other company, Moonshot Coaching, she helps people bring out the best in themselves and achieve their own company’s full potential. Kelly’s mission? “I would like to help people find the guts to choose for themselves a bit more often. Staying true to who you are sounds incredibly cliché, but how do you actually do that?! And how to know what makes you happy in the first place?”

Her motto in life? “I may not always have a choice in what comes my way, but I do have a choice in how to deal with it.” She wants to help others take control of their lives. “As soon as you feel more in charge and know you yourself determine what you want life to be like, you will feel so much happier. Happiness doesn’t imply that everything has to be perfect; we just have to know how to keep things enjoyable and nice enough for ourselves, despite the inevitable ups and downs.”
