We are kicking-off the Featured Story Series (FSS) in your Luxembourg Expats Network. Our first conversation is with Verena Miller, Founder of NextStop Luxembourg.
Here we begin...
We are delighted to have you with us in FSS. FSS' ambition is to highlight the journey of our community members and create interesting conversations among our community and beyond. Welcome once again, let's get started :)
A quick introduction about yourself:
Hello, I’m Verena, born and raised in the North of Germany.
What brings you to Luxembourg, and how has life in Luxembourg been?
After being in the airline and hospitality industry for a decade, travelling to over 50 countries all around the world, living in different places in the UK as well as all over Germany, I relocated in 2018 to the heart of Europe - Luxembourg. This is where I live with my American husband and 1.5 year old son and call home.
How did you get started with your entrepreneurial journey?
Originally we came, like many other expats, for a job offer. I’m not gonna lie, I didn’t know much about the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg at all, I’ve never even been here before.
The start of my Luxembourg journey was a bit rough, I faced many challenges. I tried to figure out the language system, citizen & car registration, different rules, geography, housing policies so on and so forth and it took some time but it all worked out after all and it’s been an adventurous and fun ride that always seems to have a surprise for me.
My entrepreneurial journey started some years ago. I offered nutrition & mindset online coaching and enjoyed it a lot. Teaching how to change people’s life is so powerful and rewarding. At some point though, I realized my purpose lies in going out into the world and making a difference for other people. From many other expats as well as my own experience I knew how tough it can be to move to a new country, you might have never been to.
Establishing a life in a country that’s so unique but also very foreign. Hoping to find a nice apartment or house to live in after arriving here immediately can be very disappointing. Attending appointments left and right and trying to figure out everything by yourself is not only stressful but also time consuming. Having someone who takes care of all of this, the whole package, no question unanswered makes one’s process much easier.
What business services do you offer iand who should reach you?
In cooperation with real estate agents, local companies and a small team of professionals, I strive to expedite and simplify your move to Luxembourg as smoothly as possible.
Individuals and also businesses can depend on receiving a very personal and reliable service, with the individual but also family requirements being met.
Next Stop Luxembourg will be there to assist you before, during and after your move, ensuring that you are well-settled in your new Luxembourg home.
What hobbies / interests keep you busy outside of work?
Nutrition & Cooking, Yoga, Nature, Events
