Our fundamental aim is to show new and aspiring business owners, coaches and artists, how to transform their lives AND businesses to manifest more purpose, abundance and freedom! We seek to inspire and provide information to help you build and grow your own authentic online lifestyle business and get more clients, specifically the kind of clients that you'll love to work with!
This is your Ka (and Katie Sundance) and we're the founders of this website.
One thing you should know: We were both born and raised in Germany, so English isn't our native language. This is the reason why our English may sometimes sound a bit out of the norm, but being a bit out of the norm is kind of our motto in life, so please excuse us and buckle up!
If you're an entrepreneur or a small business owner who's very passionate about your message, you're about to loooove us! (and not just because of our funny English! LOL)
Why else? Because we show you how you can set up your business in a totally authentic way using a minimum amount of time, while you share your inner light with other people, globally. We show you how to do this in a smart way, using Internet technology to spread your message (and getting paid well for this too!)
Ah, and by the way, I almost forgot to mention... You can do your work from ANYWHERE you want… even in a tropical paradise!
So, to tell you more about us, here's our story of how we started to run our very, very heart-felt online businesses, which allow us the freedom to work from anywhere and at the moment from a tropical paradise called Costa Rica.
This is us in 1997 in Thailand
Since then we became a couple and have traveled to plenty of other places in the world:
South America: Argentina, Peru, Chile, Bolivia, and Ecuador where we became pregnant with our first child!
Then Australia and Bali while being pregnant.
When our second child was one and half years old we flew to Thailand, then back to Australia and New Zealand.
With child number three, we decided to move to La Palma on the Canary islands.
When we became pregnant again, we went back to Thailand and after three months there decided to move to Costa Rica where I gave birth to our fourth child.
As you can see, we're gypsies at heart, and after almost 2 years here we're starting to make plans for further travels, even though it feels like we would like to keep Costa Rica as a home base.
Years ago, when we met in New Zealand, there was no Internet. It would still be many years before Facebook, YouTube and Twitter would be invented. Travelers wrote real letters back then (remember - with pen and paper?) and made collect calls when they wanted to call home.
This was Ka’s first video camera 1992. Cell phones were still the size of a kid's shoe box. and it cost a fortune back then to make a 5 minute phone call back home! The internet had just started back in those days. And it started sloooowly… But my husband carried - very early in his career as a videographer - a video camera the size of 3 laptops, and it was as heavy as a watermelon.
But even back then, we thought how awesome it would be to make a living while traveling and sharing what we were most passionate about. And now, almost 15 years later we do exactly that.
Several years ago we started a website called The RawfoodFamily, where we taught parents how to eat more conscientiously and make better food choices, together with their kids.
To share more of our story, in 2004 our second son was diagnosed with Asthma. So we went on a healing journey and found the magic of raw food. It truly changed our lives. After going from cooked to raw foods his symptoms were gone within a week!
We stayed on a 100% raw food diet for 4 years and then started to transform into a high raw diet, which also includes brown rice, quinoa, buckwheat noodles or steamed veggies like broccoli and cauliflower every other day. Mostly we eat locally grown, organic, fair-trade food, and also fresh tropical fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. And we drink green juices every day. We really believe that the high raw diet is a way of life and that it not only changes your kitchen ingredients, but your whole life.
We’ve seen it over and over again: You start with foods that inspire you to start moving more, which gives you more confidence and that leads to a desire to share your knowledge and make a living with it. It has certainly happened for us!
After changing our diet and the miracle that occurred, we had the deep desire to help other people achieve the same, so we started by doing YouTube videos to inspire people, then began writing and selling e-books and before we knew it we had the freedom to move to Costa Rica, living a tropical lifestyle with the freedom to do what we love.
Now, we not only help people to start to become more radiantly healthy through our videos and ebooks, but we're now teaching other passionate, soul-driven people who want to make a difference in the world how to turn their passion into a real, freedom-based lifestyle online business.
During all that time we learned “heaps ” (we spent quite some time in Australia - can you tell?) about online marketing.
After being asked for the 3 millionth time where we get our protein while being on a raw food diet, we realized that our passion had shifted and we wanted to lean more toward the world of online marketing. This change in our passion along with veering away from a totally raw food diet led us to change the name and focus of our business to The SundanceFamily, where you are now!
We're super-passionate about helping other passionate entrepreneurs and small business owners with a vision to run their own online businesses in a way that it isn't overwhelming and doesn’t rule their life. When you do that, then you can concentrate on what you do best.
We understand that there are soooooo many people who are forced to make decisions based on money or time, and they never get to do what they really WANT or would LOVE to do. We want to help you do what you love and have more freedom in your life too - just as we have…
Love and Sunshine,
