Personal news

This summer I will write my 5th book: a manual for world citizens. Since I don’t fit the Dutch (or any?) system anymore, I have decided to create my own. No taxes, no admin, no parking tickets: so far, so good! I am concentrating on key-note speeches and workshops in fun locations. ‘Write your book in one week’ workshops on Curaçao and Mallorca, Personal Branding weekend in Barcelona, Blogging in Berlin and Boost Your Business Curaçao. So far most of them are in Dutch, but if you’re interested: drop me a line and I’ll give you all information. huis Mallorca might actually be a destination you’ll hear more about. I am considering to buy an old finca there and reconstruct it to be completely self-sufficient. Chickens, olive trees, workshops, friends and good food. That is my dream for the next year… To be continued…
