How Is It To Be You is for all those people who no longer want the things that scare them stop them.

If you’re a rebel with a cause and have a blazing big heart, a wicked smart head, and your feet on the ground, then this is the place for you.

This is where we explore all things human. Where we go waaay beyond the superficial, beyond that what’s considered ‘normal’, and, together, learn and positively shape how it is to be us.


That’s right; we’re in the business of world peace! Not by trying to boil all 5 oceans in 1 go though…our strategy is to make it happen 1 individual and 1 ‘simple’ question at a time.

Call it grassroots. Or bottom-up. Or inside-out. It is us taking responsibility for our own happiness and through that for the happiness of the world as a whole.

Linda CoussementThis is me, Linda Coussement, and I’m on a purpose driven mission to create more understanding, more empathy, and more compassion in the world.

NOT by trying to change the system from the top down…but by doing so from the grass roots up. By mentoring and inspiring people in taking responsibility and showing vulnerability, by leading by example, by not shying away from the ‘dark side’ of being human and by not letting the things that scare them stop them.

And oh yeah, I also travel around the world to ask all sorts of people: “How is it to be you?”
