Author of the international bestseller ‘Love Life’

Esther Jacobs is such a person.”

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

Who’s that girl?

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, traveled through 100 countries, got ‘fired’ from the Netherlands, live outside the system; experience the ultimate freedom…

Uncertainty has become my comfort zone.

This is my story

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

Work with me

I light fires.

Preferably in your heart; if necessary also under your feet …

My passion is to empower remarkable people.

I help you to experience more freedom, share your unique story and make a positive impact on the world around you.
