About Esther Jacobs

They call me the ‘No Excuses Lady’ because I get things done regardless of the circumstances.

I raised € 16 million for charities, survived on an uninhabited island for the European Survivor reality TV show, wrote 30 books, travelled through 100 countries, got ‘fired’ from the Netherlands, lived outside the system; experienced the ultimate freedom…

Uncertainty has become my comfort zone.

Here you can read my story and how I can help you make your dreams come true.


“Esther dares to move mountains and she actually does it.”

Author of the international bestseller ‘Love Life’


“This era needs people who think outside the box, cross borders, and create new possibilities.
Esther Jacobs is such a person.”

Herman Wijffels (Dutch Captain of Industry)


“Esther Jacobs shook up the world of charity.
I admire her mission to make charities more transparent and the results she booked.”

Morris Tabaksblatt

Peter Vries

“Her strong sense of justice makes that Esther does not always choose the easy way.
I recognize that from my own work.”

Peter R. de Vries, investigative journalist and crime reporter

Linda De Mol

“Our hero. They were so unreasonable to her on Survivor, she didn’t stand a chance.
However, Esther stayed open and friendly. How did she manage?”

Linda de Mol, Dutch actress and TV presenter

Best health insurance for digital nomads 2023: Your ultimate guide

Health insurance is an essential consideration, especially for digital nomads, expats and frequent travellers. When you deregister from your home country, you often lose access to national health insurance benefits. Below is an overview of various health insurance options suitable for digital nomads and travellers. It includes well-known ones, some specific ones for Dutch citizens and also some unusual solutions that I have found and used. Keep in mind that no single plan will meet everyone’s needs. It’s crucial to review the coverage, terms and conditions, and pricing to find the best fit for your lifestyle.

How are the trees doing?

Let me start with this most frequently asked question. I wish I had different news, but the trees are having a hard time. Not only because of the extremely high temperatures and the drought but mainly because the deadly Xylella bacteria is spreading like wildfire. Xylella thrives in the heat, while the resistance of the trees actually deteriorates. In this blog, you can read how they are doing, and how the advice of the 'tree doctor' I found may save them.

Digital Nomad – Inspiration Shot September 2023

You can take a Digital Nomad off the plane but you can't take the travel out of a Digital Nomad… I was planning to be in The Netherlands for the whole month of August, but… I wanted to go see my dad in Miami, and also to Puglia for a few days, to arrange everything there for the 3 Airbnbs. From September I will be 'on the road' all winter anyway, so this seemed like a perfect time for another Inspiration Shot with tips about location-independence and entrepreneurship.
