Who Is Christine Frey?

"My purpose in life is to be there for others to feel acknowledged for who they are and connect them

with like minded people so that they find their own voice, acceptance

and achieve the best version of themselves."

Christine Frey Digital Entrepreneur

I am born and raised in a small village in Germany, where everyone knows your name. 

Under the wings of my very success-driven Mum, I was always pushed to give my very best in any life situation. This was reflected in my above average school results and successes in hobbies, like coming second place in the European Championship with my dancing team. 

With a passion for culture & language, I moved to the UK in 2010 to complete my first class Bachelor’s degree in International Business Communication and Mandarin with Distinction. With a scholarship in my bag I moved on to complete my Master’s degree. 

The times I remember most however, were when I interacted with international students from all over the world as part of my role as International Student Representative. Happiness comes with helping others get unstuck.

My life in the digital world started with my first corporate role as a Digital Product Assistant where I was introduced to the world of E-Commerce. I climbed the career ladder quickly and secured my first manager role at the age of 23.

At this point in my life, I realised that things were starting to spiral out of control. My personal life revolved around my work life and not the other way around. Even when I wasn't working, I was thinking about work and most of my Sunday was spent planning my Monday board meeting.

So I decided to look for other ways to grow a lifestyle of choice.

Just 3 years later I left the corporate world to work for my partner, launched my own first online business (which failed...check out my free ebook "6 Reasons Why My First Online Business Failed"), started from scratch with my second online business, which is now my full-time passion.

I'm now loving life as a Digital Entrepreneur!

Why I Love The Digital Lifestyle

Culture, Language & Traveling

My first travel adventure with a language exchange program to Eastbourne in the UK, at the age of 13 years, has triggered my passion for languages, traveling and exploring the world. 

I am not an armchair tourist, but a curious traveller who always thrives to learn more about other cultures and traditions. Thanks to my parents I was able to set my itchy feet in a number of different countries throughout Europe, even before I turned 18. Later on, my passion for Asian culture and language led me to explore China, Malaysia, Burma and Thailand. Oh and as you can imagine, I have tried lots of weird and wonderful food during my time in China. ;) 

Living a digital lifestyle means having more opportunity to spending longer periods of  time in other countries, mingling with natives and experiencing what happiness and life mean in different parts of the world. 

Family & Friends 

What would life be without family and friends? Utterly meaningless! 

My family and friends absolutely take up a large part of my life and I couldn’t imagine being fulfilled and happy without the close connection to my loved ones. 

But with the largest part of my family living in Germany there has always been a dilemma between my desire for living in another country and urge to spend quality time with my family. Working in corporate employment meant being geographically chained to one location with little flexibility to fulfill both desires. 

So I ended up seeing my family only twice per year, missing out on nearly all birthday celebrations and to top it off, my sister's wedding preparations and my mum's operation. And I can tell you, not even video calls on Skype made up for my deep feelings of guilt not being there in the moments that mattered most. Enough was enough!

I quit my job and joined Anthony's online business which allowed us to move to Germany and live with my parents for 6 months. And even if we have now moved back to the UK to look after Anthony's two boys, I can frequently fly over to meet up with family and friends for longer periods of time, without gaining permission from an employer first or the risk of losing my job.
