SELECTED COACHING TESTIMONIALS

"Working with Jovanka took me on the shortest path to the essence of what I had brought with me. In our work, she helped me to become concrete in the right places. Thus a roadmap became tangible on which I could continue to think and work for myself. She has the very rare talent of creating clarity without losing the magic."

MAX PROSA / SINGER-SONGWRITER. (Co-production Deutsche Oper and Musicboard Berlin)

"In a pivotal moment in my career, Jovanka was a kind and wise guiding companion. It makes a difference to have someone by your side who becomes part of your process and stands by you as you grow. One of my highlights was our deep-dive and fine-tuning in the topic ‘communications’: with my audience, with music industry peers as well as with the media: choosing door-opener songs, managing communication channels with industry colleagues, and keeping narrative control in interview situations with media. A journey with Jovanka is one guaranteed to leave you, if not with complete answers, always with the right questions".

GOTOPO / ARTIST, MUSIC PRODUCER

"Jovanka offered a warm space for me to share and listened attentively. In turn, I received her support, honest thoughts and also alternate points of view, and blind spots to consider. She shared her experience and wisdom generously. I truly cherished her ability to make me see the progress despite my worries. Internally, these sessions changed the course for me and revealed that some things I thought were missing were already there. Where one feels weakness, another one senses strength. For all this, I am so thankful, Jovanka.".

PETRA HERMANOVÁ / COMPOSER, PERFORMER

„The sessions with Jovanka were extremely helpful for me in defining goals for my career, I learned the importance of clear communication with the people I work with, I learned tools about time management, how to avoid burnout and how to plan in advance the release of my next ep. Our meetings gave me a lot of motivation and inspiration and I’m very grateful to have received this support. Thank you!!!“

KARMA SHE / PERFORMANCE ARTIST, MUSICIAN 

Jovanka is a music industry professional familiar with the music business, the artistic and creative process, and a holistic understanding and approach to people. The coaching was a great opportunity for me to take stock of my current projects and professional ventures and assess each of them with Jovanka’s fresh and expert look. Through her supportive approach, Jovanka has helped me stay focused on my goals, bolstered my confidence, and encouraged me to dream bigger.

MONIBI / DJ, MUSIC PRODUCER

Wow - what an insightful feedback session! Jovanka has a way of drawing out the key message of the song really quickly and shares a lot of unmissable practical and creative songwriting tips and tricks. On top of that, I felt really understood as a person and as a songwriter. I went back home with a fresh dose of inspiration and a strong desire to continue perfecting my songs, and a big smile on my face :) Couldn't recommend her more!

TESSA DANIEL /  SINGER, SONGWRITER

„Jovanka accompanied me in bringing out my vision even further and pushed me to go deeper into the project turning it into something with much higher value. The sessions were very helpful and I wish I could have 20 more. They were all in a peaceful environment physically and mentally and I felt accompanied with support, goal-oriented advice and comments coming from an observant, respectful and knowledgeable place whether it’s music-industry wise, songwriting wise, or artistically. Thank you for this opportunity“

KZIA / SINGER, MUSICIAN, PERFORMING ARTIST

"I went into the process with many different "construction sites "(studio recording, label research, name change, tour preparation, press kit design, performance work) and felt with all of those in good hands and professionally supported by Jovanka. The special thing about her work is that she has both musical know-how and years of experience in the music business. On top of that, can see, mirror, and challenge me as a human being."

MARLÈNE COLLE / PERFORMING ARTIST, MUSICIAN

"Jovanka has accompanied my creative process on a conceptual, musical, dramaturgical and psychological-human level. She has the valuable ability to get to the core in all these areas, to critically unravel and reinforce. She has helped me bring clarity to my ideas, follow through and implement them confidently. Invaluable!"

ANNELIE BENTLER / COMPOSER, MUSIC PRODUCER

"Our Session was fun and educational at the same time. Jovanka immediately recognized the strengths and weaknesses of my lyrics and gave me just the right hints and tools to become a better songwriter. I am very happy that I consulted her."

YUNG FSK18 – RAPPERIN

"Jovanka is a sculptor who, together with the artists, courageously and uncompromisingly - but never encroaching - tweaks the music and everything that goes with it until the work can unfold its full power and shine. Crazy!. I learned an incredible amount, both in my project's musical and visual realization and in communicating with people in the music business and the marketing campaign through Jovanka's expertise and creative input."

CELINA BOSTIC / PERFORMING ARTIST, MUSICIAN

»I was very happy to meet and connect with Jovanka and get the coaching over the time we had. It’s very rare as an artist that someone will give you such a clear overview and also bring forth blind spots you may have missed or been unaware of. Some moments were hard to hear, though I think were necessary in helping me to open up new space to work on those areas. I felt a newfound confidence boost in my artist soul and vision and where I want to go with my music.«

MIKEY WOODBRIDGE / MUSICIAN, MULTIDISCIPLINARY ARTIST

"The coaching with Jovanka was so great because she works multi-dimensionally. She is an artist herself and knows exactly what you are talking about. Where the traps are, where the mindset gets skewed, where the concrete challenges in business are and how to navigate all these fields healthily. That means she can go in-depth with you on all levels and offer approaches to solutions. Personally, artistically and as a person in business. That's worth its weight in gold."

KENICHI & THE SUN / MUSICIAN, MULTIDISCIPLINARY ARTIST

„My Meetings with Jovanka were extremely helpful and productive. at first, I was hesitant about getting a coach, but after just one meeting I was already looking forward to all the other meetings. In our sessions I learned a lot about how to manage my profile clearly in defining my sound and my story out to the world, I also got a great toolbox for communication and how to act when certain situations arise in my creative process. I am happy I took the coaching sessions and I feel a real difference after taking them.“

MOR DJ / MUSIC PRODUCER

„Jovanka gave me great solutions for different problems. She shared with me her knowledge and experience and showed me how I can search for information and also how to think about things from a different (and creative) point of view. Thank you so much for this opportunity!“

DASCO / DJ, MUSIC PRODUCER

„I met Jovanka at the very beginning of my career as a songwriter and producer – and learned so much about this profession from her! I admire how she can adapt to different styles and artists and provide exactly the support that this person needs in their creative process. I have often heard colleagues rave about working with her. Especially as a woman in the music business, I also appreciate her empowerment; there are so many situations as a female musician where it is important to assert yourself and clearly state the value of your work. For her wealth of experience,her advice, and her open ear, I am very grateful.“
