My Inspiration: Tina Roth Eisenberg

By Aenea Liang • June 3, 2015

The first time I heard of Swissmiss (aka Tina Roth Eisenberg) I was in college. I only knew of her blog, and I was a bit dismissive of her mostly because the friend who sent me her link is one of those people who bombards you with links, so Swissmiss got lost in the shuffle. Throughout the years I kept hearing her name pop up, so eventually I signed up for her newsletter and found out about all of the wonderful things this woman has done.

Tina Roth Eisenberg has an insanely impressive resume. Originally from Switzerland, she moved to the US in 1999 and has since run her own creative studio, founded the monthly lecture-series Creative Mornings (highly recommended), created the temporary tattoo line Tattly, and so much more.

Beyond her long list of professional achievements, I also find Tina Roth Eisenberg’s mindset and philosophy to be very inspirational. She’s helped me to understand that “aha-moments” can’t be forced, that you shouldn’t wait around for things to happen, and that its healthy to separate work time from free time. I obviously knew of all these things “conceptually,” but seeing such a successful person embody these traits makes it feel that much more achievable, therefore it’s no surprise that when my week came to teach a Learning+Leadership seminar, I chose to share Swissmiss’ philosophy with my coworkers.

After watching Eisenberg’s 5 rules for making an impact, I know you’ll be a believer too!
