JACKIE BOHEME ANTWERP
Jackie Bohème is an inspiring place for ambitious women during the week and you can rent the stylish l’Apartment Jackie during the weekend.
Trusting her feminine energy
Ellen Wauters is the ambitious owner of Jackie Bohème. She has a background as a real estate agent and after a burnout, she decided to travel and discovered the love for her feminine energy again. Her intuition, the trust in following her heart and how to take care of herself better. After that journey, she thought of all those other ambitious female entrepreneurs. Why do women feel insecure? Why is there jealousy between them? And why is it so hard to embrace that feminine energy in the corporate world?
A tribe of ambitious women
She decided it was time to create a tribe of ambitious women to support each other. So they can talk about everything that has to do with running a business and being a woman. Topics like how to combine motherhood with a fulltime job? How to ask for a raise? How to set goals. And how to not lose sight of yourself through self-care. Ellen’s love for bricks turned out well: she found an apartment in no time. And the Gatherings and Masterclasses at Jackie Bohème could begin.
Gatherings & Masterclasses
There are Gatherings such as the Breaky Talks, where you and other women come together for a delicious vegan breakfast and talk about a specific theme. The Broga Gatherings are there for women who love to combine brunch and yoga. And during self-care, you can learn how to feel better by eating the right food. Masterclasses dive into business topics like social media, negotiating and planning. She invites experts to teach you how to deploy this in your own company.
And then there is l’Apartment Jackie. A true gem. On weekdays it’s used for all these inspiring sessions – you can also join them if you don’t live in Antwerp – and in the weekends she rents it out. You immediately start to calm down when you enter the serene apartment. Ellen tells me that everything is made by women. From the curtains to the fabric on the beautiful chair, Ellen found at a flea market. The showpiece is the artwork made of dried flowers above the wooden table. Made by Wild Flowers & Vodka.
l’Apartment Jackie consists of a living room, kitchen, bedroom, and two extra rooms. You’ll find a yoga mat and meditation cushion in your room if you want to continue your practice. The apartment is located in a quiet neighborhood – you can reach August or Pakt Antwerp in ten minutes by foot. And if you take the tram you’ll be in the center of the city in just 20 minutes.
