We've helped thousands of businesses to thrive. And we want to help you too.

Our Story

Yvonne and Shamash are co-founders of Zen of Business.

They met on a mindfulness and zen retreat in Chandolin, Switzerland.

Yvonne has been in business for 40 years, and been coaching businesses for 20 years.

Over those years, Yvonne has discovered three things:

1. Business can be joyful, transformative and meaningful with the right coaching.

2. Business requires a zen-like approach to be most successful.

3. Business owners can be trained both one to one or in a group setting to become a better business.

Shamash has been in business for about 10 years and been teaching mindfulness for 20 years.

Over those years, Shamash has discovered three things too:

1. Success in business doesn't just come from action, but from stillness too.

2. Everyone can be more zen or mindful - they just need to be helped to find an approach that works for them.

3. Kindness, compassion or warmth are the secret sauce to stillness. Not force, competition or excessive effort.
