Hi, I Am Saana Koljonen

The writer of this blog and CEO of Authentic Excellence LLC

I have always loved to write and it has been my way to process my way through life, even through the harder moments in life.

So sometimes I share about those moments, sometimes I keep it "more professional" and help solving the problems I encounter from coach's perspective.

Anyways, happy you are here. Let me know if you have any topic wishes!
