„A lot of things have to fit together for a successful career!“
Currently, Nicole Billa from Austria is really taking off in Hoffenheim. The twenty-something is determined and not only talented on the ball - she is also a kickboxer. Style PASS spoke to the likeable Billa about sport and what else interests her in life.
Style PASS would have loved to ask Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who is stepping down as chairman of Bayern Munich this year, a few questions - about his career, his opinion on women's soccer and a few other, certainly presumptuous topics. The press office in Munich turned him down. Why? Style PASS is over-questioning, our questions were certainly not unreasonable, and we had even provided Munich with them in advance. But just make up your own mind.
Holistic thinking for individual strength
Martina Voss-Tecklenburg, who has been coaching the German women's national soccer team for almost two years now, doesn't seem to do things by halves: she rings through to the telephone interview on time, a DFB employee comes by during the talk and a coffee is offered in a relaxed tone. Everything under control? Talking to Style PASS online gives you the image of a focused woman far removed from clichés about coaches. The differentiated view and holistic approaches for her team seem to be more to Voss-Tecklenburg than the one-dimensional. Even if in the end the round should end up in the square.

Unfinished, yet completed
People often philosophise about the unfinished. What if - just as an example - Mozart had not died at 35, or Schubert at 31? Could they have crowned their work even further, or is Mozart's "Requiem", in view of his death, the completion of his creative power, even if a few bars are missing, and Schubert's "Unfinished" even the most perfect thing he composed? For genius knows no age. Neither in art nor in music, not even in literature. Death got in the way of the artists who were subsequently named "early completers", but their work endures.
