Lady Boss: How To Be Unstoppable

What does it really take to be able to pinpoint what you want to do in life and give it your all? How not to give up when things don’t go your way? What’s more effective to keep you going other than motivation?

Three of our Lady Boss speakers for November have all very different background, but they have one thing in common: they’re aware of what they wanted and let no soul get in their way to reach it.  They are Kintan from Indonesia, Izzi from Germany and Paula from USA. Let’s hear their stories on how they became self-aware who they are and how it creates such positive turn out in their work & business. Come to share your questions and ideas, whilst networking with other lady bosses. We are bringing back this really cool event to celebrate the amazing women who are building fantastic businesses in Dojo.


Kintan Ayunda was fresh off from university when she went to Bali from Jakarta almost 5 years ago. Entering the real work-life as a fresh-grad, her perception towards professional work is revolving around 9-5, cubical, hierarchy and all things related to corporate. She was even ready to make friends with Jakarta’s traffic.  She then got culture shock and also inspired when she introduced to digital nomad concept which remote working is an integral part to it. Then she decided to choose to work with companies that adopted remote working as the central culture and surrounded herself to work together with like-minded people.  She has done a lot of remote work with various clients and companies. Her remote working experience has taught her a lot about resilience, mental health and connection. And most importantly, she feels that remote working help her in knowing her self better.

Izzi Smith was born and raised in Northern England but after graduating university she earned an SEO internship at a global car rental company in Munich and moved over five years ago without ever setting foot in Germany before. During that time, Izzi fell in love with all things SEO and became the SEO Manager for the UK and USA markets. In 2018, she started speaking at Digital Marketing conferences across Europe and has since been rated the top speaker multiple times, as well as winning a German Search Marketing Award for one of her successful campaigns. Izzi is often fighting to see more females on event stages, and loves to give an encouraging and supportive hand to all who wish to try.

Paula Novacki owns & operates a performance media agency specialized in SEM/paid social. Originally from Washington D.C., USA, Paula started her career out as an advertising account coordinator and worked her way up to managing a paid media team at a NYC-based global agency with several multi-million dollar accounts including USPS, Exelon Corporation, Nabisco, and more. In Fall of 2018, Paula decided to take a break from the agency world to do some freelance work to pursue travel – with full intent to jump back into the agency world after a few months. However, plans changed as scopes increased, and Paula now has more than 12 clients, ten employees and a full-time paid media agency. Her current client portfolio ranges from global enterprise-level accounts such as Uber, Eddie Bauer and Giovanni Rani Pasta, to US public health organizations, start-ups, tech companies and nonprofits. Paula also consults with SMB marketing and digital agencies to build up their digital paid media practices, teaches courses/workshops on paid media, and guest lectures with her university’s advertising department several times a year. After several years between NYC and DC, Paula has been living the location independent life since January of 2019, traveling the world and meeting incredible fellow entrepreneurs and business owners with similar trajectories. Paula is excited to be in Canggu for an extended period of time and eager to connect with like-minded industry professionals at Dojo & beyond.
