“The best of…” – Inspiration shot April 2021

2021-04-12T17:52:12+02:00

Vaak zien we op tegen het schrijven van updates, social media posts, nieuwsbrieven of blogs, omdat we denken dat we altijd iets nieuws moeten verzinnen. Zonde, want de meesten van ons hebben al zoveel goed materiaal! Maar hoe weet je wat ‘goed’ is? Dat is dan weer het handige van social media: je ontvangt directe feedback, in de vorm van likes, views, comments en shares. Ter inspiratie hierbij een compilatie van mijn meest gelezen en gedeelde posts in de afgelopen maand.

Economize, penny-wise – Inspiration shot March 2021

2021-03-18T10:44:52+01:00

We all want so much, but we are still only allowed to do so little at the moment, so we look for new ways of living and working. How does that effect you as a person and your business? In this inspiration shot I will share a secret, a triumph, a new business model and more tips and inspiration to get through these 'tough times'.

Where there’s a will, there is a way – Inspiration shot February 2021

2021-02-16T11:20:23+01:00

If you really want something, you can usually find a way to make it happen. But what if conditions are constantly changing like they are now during the corona pandemic? Then you have to think even more creatively, try even harder, and sometimes be a bit stubborn... In this inspiration shot, I will tell you about my 'impossible' trip from South Africa to Miami to be with my father, along with plenty more inspiration: 'if you can dream it, you can do it!'

Do you reflect on the lessons from your relationships? – Inspiration shot January 2021

2021-01-13T16:11:50+01:00

“Every lesson that hasn’t been learned will be repeated”. Relationships are our greatest mirrors. We are presented with the same situations again and again, in different contexts, until we learn our lessons. They are not always easy. How do we make constant learning and growth attractive and perhaps even enjoyable? In recent years I have had quite a bit to 'chew on' and gained many new insights. This inspiration shot includes a number of recommendations to listen to, read, and action.

Uncovering opportunities in Cape Town – Inspiration shot December 2020

2020-12-11T13:26:21+01:00

I was looking for an inspiring place to spend the winter, without too much time difference, somewhere with good weather and where the restaurants are open. When I saw the view from this apartment in Cape Town, I was immediately sold. Table Mountain looks different every day. And yet it is at the same time exactly the same. And that is precisely the point. If you look with different eyes, everything can suddenly seem different.

La dolce vita in Italy – Inspiration shot November 2020

2021-02-04T12:29:14+01:00

I was in two minds about sharing travel stories during times of Corona, but I have chosen to continue living my life - with the necessary restrictions and precautions, of course - and to look for opportunities, adventures, and experiences. I want to share these with you because it is up to you whether you want to enjoy yourself (from home, while traveling, perhaps even in lockdown or quarantine?) or whether you focus on the limitations, which naturally we all feel.

Partnerships – Inspiration shot October 2020

2020-12-15T12:41:30+01:00

You maybe know me to be a loner, so this topic may surprise you. Collaborations and partnerships - if chosen properly - can offer enormous added value. Preferably to ALL parties involved. The best partnerships are win-win-win situations. How do you recognize such opportunities and how do you create such a collaboration?

Clear your mind… – Inspiration shot September 2020

2020-09-04T10:57:01+02:00

In recent weeks I was on the road without a laptop for the first time in perhaps ten years. Kind of like a vacation, although I don't actually do that. The idea was to recharge in nature, the implementation was ultimately quite hard hiking in the French Alps :) And how good it did me to be busy with my body instead of my head! It did take me a lot of effort to let go, to switch. Do you recognize that? Because it actually didn't work out well at all; I am in the busiest time ever, with all new plans and projects. Below some inspiration, ideas, and tips.

Happy birthday to me… – Inspiration shot July 2020

2020-12-15T12:38:44+01:00

There we are. I've been 50 for a few days now. It's official. It's a bit weird because I still feel like I am 35. I put on some 'serious' clothes this morning for my Zoom calls. Let's see if it makes a difference? In this 'inspiration shot', I offer you some insights from 'the fifties' and an update about the birthday gift I gave myself: an olive grove in Puglia...

Thinking differently/ Paradigm Shifts – Inspiration shot May 2020

2020-12-15T12:35:55+01:00

At the end of February I left the Netherlands for a few weeks to run a writing retreat and some workshops in Curaçao. I traveled with just my small carry-on luggage. Who would have thought that I would only be able to return to the Netherlands three months later, after spending almost two months in Miami? Traveling in this time and age is an adventure.
