Fabiana Nilsson

On putting your health before your business, fitting creative work in without having to rely on it and being decisive.
Interviewed by Michelle Warner

Fabiana Nilsson is a business coach for online entrepreneurs who want to grow their business on their terms — not according to what’s trending on the internet.

After burning out at her fancy corporate job, Fabiana knew things needed to change. So, in a tale as old as time, she became an entrepreneur. But she built and grew her business her way — without social media or complicated marketing strategies, and pivoting when it felt right.

Today, Fabiana is committed to building a life and business based solely on aligned, profitable decisions, even if it means going against the grain — and helping her clients do the same.

She teaches her clients that having a deep knowledge of industry best-practices is only the beginning; it’s learning when to follow, bend, and completely rewrite the rules that the magic really happens.
