We are Olivia & Morgan

So both in our 30's, with exciting careers including fast track to CEO positions, we met at RSM Business School during our MBA in The Netherlands. 

Always afraid to drop the ball, we quickly figured out life after 30 is not about having everything together, but more about developing yourself, knowing who you and what your goals are and ESPECIALLY  knowing how to get there.

Because we can all dream, but turning that into action and reality is a huge challenge.

So we created this platform to develop and achieve your goals step-by-step.

We truly believe that if you can dream it, you can make it happen. Anything you want, you can achieve.  

This is the philosophy of Eve & Elle and the core concept behind every article we write and product that we develop.

Everything we do is about helping you make it happen.
