About MoniqueRich
Joined May 2020
Hello, I am Monique Richert, a singer-songwriter from Silent Island Projects. I was born and raised in Amsterdam. At the age of 28 years, I met my husband Gerhard.
Gerhard founded a diving center in Turkey, where he met me a few years later. I came to learn to dive, we were soulmates and as life sometimes wants, we've got married a year later.
We bought an old mahogany yacht from 1961, renovated them together on a hot, dusty shipyard in Bodrum, Turkey. After a few years of sailing in the Mediterranean, we set off for cross over the Atlantic, together with our female Dog Susi, a rescue dog they found on an icy winter night of 2000.
We sailed towards the Caribbean. Three weeks, pure life, water, wind, and stars. At first, we only wanted to spend three years in the Caribbean, but soon we realized that it was not just about sailing, we also wanted to enjoy the free life on board and the sea. We stayed for six whole years. It was important for us to get to know the country and their people, the culture behind it, the real-life, not just being a tourist. After six years we passed the Panama Chanel for our Pazific adventure, It was on those long journeys, there, on this huge, deep cobalt-blue ocean, as Gerd, watching and composing with the stars during his night watch, it was sometimes as if the Universe had its own sounds, its compositions would participate. Many nights he sat in the cockpit and collected these sequences, which are still today in his music.
I've got to know my talent for writing, started to write small travelogues next to the diary.
In 2009 we sold the boat in Malaysia, bought 2 bicycles, and traveled three months through Thailand and India with our bicycles. After these extreme experiences, we were tired of being on the road, we longed to be at there Farm in Hungary. We renovated the Farm and started growing our own organic vegetables and herbs.
In 2015, Gerhard bought a synthesizer, guitar, bass, and drums, and started composing as I spontaneously added the lyrics to a composition he'd played on a cold winter night. Within two hours, I had written my first lyrics. Since we did not have a singer, I started to take vocal lessons from Sylvia Lee, a singing teacher from Hamburg, and Voice Coach Robert Lunte, from Sun Valley, Idaho, at the same time I learned to handle the electric bass. Three years later, I felt safe and ready to sing in the meantime songs. In December 2019 we released our first Christmas Song, Saw You at Christmas Morning. In February 2020 we launched the song, Unconditional Love.
On the 8th of May, we released Song of Life, the video clip is on his way.
Our music Influenced by our almost 10 years of circumnavigation around the world and merging with other cultures, music is the expression of new world philosophy. We managed to break out of the busy being busy mentality, we had the guts to quit there save jobs, and found a way to live a happy, adventure, and harmonic life. Changing our luxury comfortable life into a life with a lot of luxury freedom. Living and learning close with the native people made us blessed and humble. Our experiences in life have to spread out into the world, showing other people how easy it is to break out and live the life you always dreamed of. We have so much to give, come with us on a journey into harmony, peace, and freedom

Your goals are totally realistic and when you achieve the first one, it will be just a matter of scaling to reach the second one. The Internet works wonderful when you have your formula for success down which you are going to be getting from the training here at WA.

Once you get this formula down the sky is truly the limit Monique! I look forward to working with you and seeing you make your goals a reality. :)

Wow, what a great life. I don't like living in the city. I used to have a five acre ranch in the country where me and my ex wife could relax and ride our horse. I was into astrophotography and could give you the name of every constellation in the night sky. I used to dabble with my guitar, but was never much good at it.

Thanks for the follow. Best of luck to you.

Hello, Monica, great to see you here. The last dive we made was 12 years ago, Bonaire( Caribean). Maldives. San Blas Island ( Panama). Moorea ( Polinesia). Avis & Tortuga in Venezuela, where our favourites. You also plays an music instrument great I sing, and play the electric bass. Gerhard plays everything, he is a genious. Is makeing a classic album now. Channeling Beethoven.

Hi Monique
I've just read your profile. Fascinating!
My first career was as a gigging musician (once a musician, always a musician) before becoming a corporate employee in 1976. During the late 70s through the 80s, I raced windsurfers on the British and European circuits. Met a few Dutch windsurfers during that period. I also spent very happy holidays bareboat cruising in the Med. The first trip I remember very well was along the Turkish coast from Fethiye to Bodrum. I would have loved to have done some of the trips you and Gerhard did. There's still time!
Like you, I have finished level 3 of the OEC. How are you getting on with Level 4?

Hello Richard, we have a lot in common. Great. You have still the time, but wait until those lockdowns are over. There is a lot of difficulties going on with sailing nowadays,. Most counties are panicking, some of our friends had to stay in the marina for months. So not a happy free life. They had to pay thousands of dollars for groceries, because they weren't allowed to go off the marina. I am still struggling with all this stuff, maybe it is my theme, I set up plugins, then they are not working. So I have a hard week. But never give up, from my failures I learn most. I hope.
Have a great day.
Monique

Hello, Richard, I use Blossom speaker but I am not happy with it. It has a lot of difficulties, things are not working well, and I like to change my theme. Do you have a suggestion?

Hi Monique, I use the Generate Press theme. Started for free and after 6 months switched up to the premium version for a little over $30. I’m really not using the power of it yet but many experienced marketers use it.
