My name is Lucia Sandaal, and I'm The Fabulous Forties Business Coach.
I work with women in their Fabulous Forties who are no longer fulfilled in their corporate job. I help them start an online buiness, quit their job, and live life on their on terms.
Three years ago I founded the PowerWomensNetwork because I was sick and tired of women settling for their current situation when they knew deep inside that they were destined for more. For some reason they seemed to believe that if you haven’t made it by the age of forty, then you’ll never make it.
And this is the biggest lie I’ve ever heard.
Because if you're determined and committed, and you have a burning desire to succeed. If you haven't given up on life and you believe that you’re worthy pursuing your dreams, then I know you can achieve ANYTHING you want, regardless of your age.
I believe that you’re never too old to follow your dreams, or to embark on a new adventure.
I believe in the ability, the right and the POWER of women to live life on their own terms.
And I believe that you should never underestimate the impact you can have on other people’s lives.
I think the Fabulous Forties are the perfect age to start your own business and make it a thriving success. Because not only do you have a sea of knowledge, experience and connections, but at this age you probably know exactly what you want from a career and what you don't.
I founded the PowerWomensNetwork based around what I believe are the 3 pillars for Business Success: Purpose. Power. Potential.
The three things that I found during my entrepreneurial journey were crucial to starting a business around something you’re passionate about and actually make money doing it.
1. PURPOSE is about what makes you tick. It’s about the desire, the passion and the vision that drives your business and keeps it moving forward. 2. POWER is about your path to success; that what will make the difference between success and failure. It’s about gaining the Confidence, the Wealth Consciousness & the Personal Growth that will literally make you unstoppable. 3. POTENTIAL is about the Strategies, Structures & Systems that will help you stay consistent in getting results and to take your business to amazing heights.
So if you’re ready to start living your life by design and create a business that truly lights you up inside, the PowerWomensNetwork is right for you. We’re here to offer you the knowledge, the guidance and the support to help you discover your Purpose, stand in your Power and unleash your Potential.

Besides being the founder of the PowerWomensNetwork, I'm also the proud mom of the 3 most amazing kids in the world.
They are what inspired me to create the PowerWomensNetwork...
Because a little over 3 years ago I was in this well-paying corporate job where I'd been working for over 24 years. I loved my job and everything was great. But then I had kids and everything started to change...
Because even though I had a great job, a monthly paycheck, the security of a pension and come on...I was getting paid maternity leave, more than anything I wanted to feel ALIVE and IN CONTROL.
I wanted to have the FREEDOM to spend more time with my young family and the opportunity to become Financially Free.
So I decided to quit my corporate job of 24 years to follow my dreams, and in december 2013 I launched my first business in the wedding industry. But even though I had been a great employee all of those 24 years, I didn’t know a thing about entrepreneurship.
I was a complete newbie and it didn’t take me long to realize that in order to be successful in business, I needed to get the word out about my business and start attracting clients fast.
I decided to learn everything I could about marketing and sales. I dove straight into Facebook Marketing and kind of became OBSESSED with it.
I started reading business books, following people online, attended live webinars and live events, I signed up to their email lists, and purchased quite a few courses about Facebook Marketing. I learned so much, and I applied it all to my business.
I started to see results fast and within the first year of my brand new business I had built my own community with over 1000 wedding professionals in The Netherlands and Belgium, over 1500 fans following me on Facebook, my work was getting published on wedding blogs and on the cover of a well-known wedding magazine, and I even landed a speaking gig at an event for Wedding Professionals.
All in one year! And all because I knew how to grow your business using Facebook!
Not long after that, I found myself sharing my knowledge with my peers in the wedding industry.
They were noticing the innovations I was creating in our industry, doing all kind of things that no-one else was doing. They were seeing the massive results I was getting in no time with my business, and they got curious. So they were coming to me for advice.
I started doing these free Skype sessions with my peers to help them grow their business too, using Facebook Marketing and they were getting amazing results.
And you know what? I discovered that I LOVE TO TEACH!
And even though I knew I had so much more to learn, I found out that a lot of entrepreneurs had never even heard about the stuff that I was teaching them. And because of that they were struggling to get their business off the ground.
And it was after one of those free Skype sessions in december 2014 that I laid the foundation for my current journey. I had ended the session and I remember thinking: “OMG…I enjoyed that so much!"
And the next thought was: "I HAVE to do something with this.” Because there were so many more people that I wanted to help, but I knew I couldn’t keep doing it one-on-one like that. I just didn’t have the time for it...
So I started outlining this business idea and only 4 weeks later I launched a website and a Facebook page for the PowerWomensNetwork.
Using my own Success System I managed to attract the most amazing Power Women into my business from day 1. And within just 6 weeks I had over 2000 followers on Facebook and I grew my email list from 0 to almost 1500 subscribers in less than 2 months.
And the platform continues to grow because people just love the inspiration, the empowerment, and our amazing community of like-minded entrepreneurs that are there to help you take your business off the ground.
Our mission at the PowerWomensNetwork is simple: Help 10,000 PowerWomen around the world to Discover their Purpose, Stand in their Power, and Unleash their Potential.
