How it all get started

After graduating Law School, I decided to travel the world while juggling, but missed the intellectual challenges. 

So I came back, but couldn’t find a job in my profession, like so many other people of my own age.

To pay the bills, I landed a call center job, which was my biggest motivation to learn about how to make money online, because it was a terrible job.

After two years I became financially independent and quit that terrible call center job.

In the meantime, I had the privilege to interview famous entrepreneurs:

  • Tim Ferriss
  • Luis von Ahn
  • Gary Vaynerchuk


Inspired by their stories…

 

I decided to join a startup (E-democracy) to learn from the rollercoaster ride. Of surviving and building your own business.

From a minimal viable product to market leader in two years, Amazing.

But, I also wanted to help more people to succeed in building successful businesses, so became the manager of my local Coworking Space.

During this time I discovered that there are so many people passionately working on great ideas, but sometimes find it hard to grow and scale their business online. 

That’s why I started business coaching in 2016 at Venturelab North, which is a business accelerator for startups and existing companies in the Northern-Netherlands.
