A victim? Never!

After a period of high energy, such I have had the past couple of weeks, I always have a “fall back moment” as well.

Afbeelding 01Even after seeing that doing the right things at the right time delivers the right result, I can get feeling a bit drained and somehow I don’t get as much done as I should. I even find excuses not to start my work in the morning. Continue reading

Business and Marketing

The year has started well for me.

I have been attending many functions where I have been distributing and receiving business cards. Next on the to-do-list is linking with all these new acquintances and looking for business opportunities.

How was your year?

The End of the Year 2013 is coming closer.

My clients are making holidays plans and most companies are not going to organise any trainings, coaching’s and consultancy for the next two to three weeks.

Love and Hope

Who was it again that said: “ there is nothing permanent except change”?

The last changes that really have a big impact on my life happened fast and took place only last week. Continue reading

Do You Have a Problem?

Last last couple of weeks I have had the privilige to meet a number of inspirational people. New ideas have been popping up like mushrooms in autumn and I feel as if there are no problems, only solutions.
