Welcome to Wow Now Blog

Insights on Happiness, customer experience, and personal growth through mindfulness & creativity

Welcome! I’m Rosaria Cirillo Louwman, an Italian little ball of energy, passionate and enthusiastic mother of two boys, married to a Dutch, living in the Netherlands since 2002, and founder of Wow Now since 2013. Author of Yellow Goldfish Factor and multiple other books, in English and in Italian (12 so far and counting).

My blog posts cover two main areas and many of their sub-areas:

1. Happiness in business, Customer Experience, Design Thinking and all things Net Promoter System and NPS journey
2. Inspiration & Personal Growth, mostly about Non-Violent Communication, Mindfulness & Creativity, and any other topic I learn about (most recently exploring Laughter Yoga and Hearth Coherence)

We recently wrote two major blog series that you can find directly here with an introduction on the reference framework:

  1. Yellow Factor and Happiness in Business Blog series
  2. Customer Experience Framework and HCX Blog Series

I hope your reading here will be meaningful and valuable to you and I look forward to starting a conversation with you about it, so please leave a comment with your point of view. Smiling regards, Rosaria
