Evelyn Gandrup mentor & coach

Entrepreneurial skills

My latest business was founding and running a small wine import. We sold delicious wines online to private consumers and restaurants for nine years. But as much as I love wine, I realised at some point that this was not my dream, I wasn’t happy with my career path. 

I have entrepreneurial skills from 20+ years and can help you with your professional, but also personal, dreams. As high-achieving women we have a lot on our plates, and sometimes we lose ourselves in the process. But when we believe in ourselves and decide to work consciously on our dreams, we can make it happen.

My skills entail start-ups, marketing, sales, project management. 


I was 17 years old when my world changed forever. My family fell apart when death visited us, followed by grief and bitterness. We became isolated islands with no communication. Loneliness became the new norm. I felt abandoned and the feeling of not belonging stayed with me for a very long time.

I made considerable changes in my life when admitting to myself that I wasn’t happy. I realised that I couldn’t wait for circumstances around me to change to feel good or to let events from my past rule my present. So I changed my habits, my beliefs, and I changed me. I took responsibility for my wellbeing, and things started to change, and the law of attraction showed its magic.

Your passion is my passion

My mission is to empower women in midlife to become successful in their pursuit to start living their dream. They are active and passionate but feel that something is missing. I help them find direction and courage in taking the committed decision to start the journey.

Other facts about me

I’m an active and out-going person. I love theatre and art, I write poetry, I do bouldering, yoga and meditation. London is my favourite city, I love Guinness and white Burgundy wines, and I hold New Zealand as my favourite country in the world. I’m also very proud of my Scandinavian origin, and I find Norse mythology fascinating. In general, I believe in a positive approach to life.

I enjoy an extensive international network through my voluntary work as a Consul at InterNations, a worldwide expat organisation, and I’m mentoring young people through Mentor, as a volunteer.
