Hanni Melnicenko

Freedom Engineer, #FREEDOMFIX, hannimartini.com

Hanni wants to live in a world where everyone has a feeing of freedom. A world where people choose where they want to be, when they want to be there & with whom…. And a world where the simple things in life matter, where human nature & common sense prevails over money & power.

Originally from England and formerly a corporate bigwig, with 12 years in Human Resources, Hanni left the rat race to ‘go woo woo’ and pursue her idea of freedom, back in 2012. Inspired by her late mother, who sadly passed away through illness at the very young age of 57, Hanni has made it her mission to make the most of every moment…..

Since then, Hanni has built a community of over 10,000 fitness professionals, who she supports in finding freedom in their businesses. Now Hanni is taking that one step further, with her own brand, focusing on Freedom as a wider concept.

Hanni has been featured on Female Entrepreneur Association, Mumsnet and more with her inspiring story, and she is a regular contributor on Huffington Post.

When she’s not #freedomfix -ing, you can find her devouring delicious tapas, enjoying a G&T sundowner on the beach near her home in Souther Spain, yoga-ing on the terrace or chivvying up her friends for basically any kind of social (not hard in a region where they have a fiesta to celebrate snails in one neighbouring village and blood-sausage in another - true story!) .

Her fresh take on #freedom is growing international traction.

Love And Connection (Boundaries And Non-attachment)

I am not quite as good at embracing his style as he is at mine! - especially in the heat of a moment but the point is I understand, honour and respect his boundaries (and he is good at gently reminding me in a way that I respond well to!) and so we have a very harmonious life.

Non-Attachment

Going through loss or bereavement teaches you a thing or two about attachment. Love, connection, compassion and empathy are human conditions. They're innate, genetic and what makes us truly unique amongst the animal kingdom.

What Advice Would You Give Your Best Friend?

Imagine the scenario.... (You probably won't have to stretch the imagination too far since most of us have been a confidant for our friends at some point in our lives)...

What If Happiness Was The Benchmark?

At age 15 he was in the 95th percentile of boys in his age group in our city in the UK, in terms of academic ability. And I made the decision to take him out of his highly sought after place at the boys' grammar school and move to Spain.

Set Boundaries For More Freedom

I understand that people all have their own stories, their own standards and that my issue here was with my own lack of boundaries NOT with him or his.

One of the Obstacles of Decluttering

It doesn't take days, week, years to get 'value for money' because really, such a thing never exists. When the money is gone, it's gone. So why torture yourself that you should be using something that you spent money on if you don't like using it.

Free Yourself and Others From Your Judgement....

When was the last time you made a judgement about yourself or someone else? I'll bet it has happened today. We make judgements constantly throughout our waking hours based on our conditioning, our experiences, our faith and a whole host of other influences.

Are You Sacrificing Your Health for Your Business?

One of the biggest mistakes we entrepreneurs make when it comes to our business is we think we are 'supposed' to work 24/7. And we feel guilty when we are not! Many of us female entrepreneurs work for months on end without a single day off. What's more, many of us average 16 to 18 hours a day. Sound familiar?!

My 'Beef' With Personal Trainers

It's good for me to see what others are saying and doing and often I find gems of wisdom I can share with my coaching clients and email subscribers. This particular morning one thing caught my eye which really got my goat. It was a photo posted by a fitness professional (personal trainer) of their brekkie.
