“I believe that only if we
dare to live a truthful life
will we create a fulfilled happy and rich life
in every way possible.”

My mission is to help You be truly honest with yourself and others, and
make choices that align with your values and principles

Whether as a leader, growing your business, fulfilling your dreams,
or living your legacy… it’s time to create your truthful life.


I am a truth seeker first – and everything else after that.

I dedicated my life to being an eternal student of human potential; studying, teaching, and one day becoming a master at the art of living a truthful life.

I combine knowledge, skills, unique life experiences, and wisdom in the fields of integrated neuroscience, psychology, leadership, modern philosophy, spirituality, lifestyle design, and living life on the spectrum.

After I died of cardiac arrest by age 19, being clinically dead for 25 seconds and going through an out-of-body experience, I knew my life was different from most of the people I would ever encounter.

I was given knowledge & 1st hand experiences in a realm most people will never experience in their lifetime.

My purpose is to share this wisdom & expertise with as many people as possible.

The T.I.M.E. Method


My book, recommended by FORBES,  helps you create an abundance of time without sacrificing your energy or your life.

In this book, I show you how to adapt traditional tools and techniques to your individual energy, core values and leadership traits.

Bringing these in alignment will help you live life fully & unlock your ultimate potential.

Because if you can slow down, you will speed up.

The Path

“The Obstacle is the Way”
(Ryan Holiday)

Some people read quotes. Other’s live them. 

Monique Lindner, aka The Time Alchemist, was born in former East Germany with two chronic health challenges, yet she started to work by age 13. This potent mixture led to her dying of cardiac arrest by age 19 and being clinically dead for 25 seconds.

Monique is an adventurous spirit on the autism spectrum whose mission is to redefine work by creating a human-centered work culture that encourages mindfulness, celebrates uniqueness, and creates sustainable growth for everyone involved.

Monique is the creator of The T.I.M.E. Method® and published her book under the same name in the first lockdown of 2020 – putting her own signature framework to the test.

She’s been featured in several top magazines such as Forbes, spoke at TEDx, and was interviewed on a range of diverse podcasts to share her wisdom and knowledge about Time and how we can Slow Down to Speed up.

How I got here

Would you believe me if I told you dying saved my life?

I started working at age 13 while I was still in high school. That was also the time I started my personal development journey due to an injury that forced me to end my semi-professional ballerina career and find ways to overcome the physical injury as well as the mental & emotional turmoil I was going through at the time.

By 15 I had two weekend jobs and a weekday job, creating a full-time job commitment besides also going to school full-time. I was running on high energy at all times – until time ran me down.

At 19 I suffered a cardiac arrest that left me clinically dead for 25 seconds. My life was turned upside down in all the ways possible.

In my book The T.I.M.E. Method – A no bullsh*t guide to creating an abundance of time’ I share my very personal story explaining why this cardiac arrest was the best wake-up call, how I changed my life and what I learnt from burning out again due to being bullied at my workplace(s) for years.

Dying forced me to step outside of the tiny box I’d shoved my life into. It kept waking me up to ask bigger questions, and to not accepting the status quo as my truth. 

I don’t want anyone to have to face death to realize what I did: No one else but YOU knows the truth of how to live your life, how to work (and what to do), where to find fulfillment and what your purpose looks like.

To live a truthful life, we need to be honest with ourselves and others, and start aligning every bit of our life with our core values and principles that we hold true.

This is my story of how ended up on this quest of living a truthful life: 

Lead…With your Superpower

Intuitive Leadership Training to help you & your team become unstoppable.

Do you find your team over-working but under-performing? 
Are there constant challenges or tension within the team,
you can’t seem to solve?
Is the team culture more of a mess than a welcoming space?

My leadership program is based on mindful working practices – first thing first: we kick the hustle & grind to the curb, and burn burnout to the ground.

With the best fitting communication practices for your team, crisis management tools and skills, as well as creating team culture, your team will turn into a super-squad!

We also bring our superpower of energy efficiency to the playground, helping each of your team members to find their personal zone of genius. And the best part? The performance of your superhero team will naturally grow.

It’s a win – win – win, just the way we love doing things.

How we unlocked Stefan’s superpower

“It’s been one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life/career in a long time. Monique has helped me to maximize my efficiency dramatically. (…) She’s also helped me to prioritize my most important tasks, and to feel less anxious and stressed.

Monique has helped me so much to get organized and be more effective and efficient while working less, which is tremendous. When we started working together, I was working pretty routinely, eight to 12 hours a day, including weekends.

I think the issue I’ve had that a lot of entrepreneurs have is that I felt like if I wasn’t working, I felt guilty. I am now working four to six hours a day. I’m taking weekends off, yet I get tremendously more done.

Stand up for your Truth

As a business owner who strives to make a huge impact in this world, it is our duty to stand up for injustice, and make it loud and clear what our believes are that we fight for.

I truly believe that especially as entrepreneurs & business owners we have a special responsibility in this world, to stand up for the ones with less opportunities, bring equity to the table and use our businesses as a vehicle to empower and elevate others.

This is our mission, the mission of Pineapples, Pirouettes & The PowerWoman oü (Yes, that’s our official business name, ha!) too. We choose to create change by helping empower refugees & ethnic minorities through education & opportunities around the world.

How we unlocked Kent’s Superpower

The biggest ROI I got from the work were actually twofold. Number one is (…) an immediate financial boost. Because I was executing & getting the results, I was seeing more financial return (…) secondly, it’s the quality of life. I love it. (…)
So I went from being overwhelmed and distracted, and really unfocused (…) Now I’m clear on what I’m doing and what I’m not doing. You know, I have a team of people that I delegate to, (…) and I am making progress every day (…) and I can measure that. And I can see it. I mean, it shows up in my quality of life, it shows up in my bank account. (…) it’s one of the greatest investments I’ve ever made in myself
