Writing, living and relaxing on Mallorca I have found a new island to add to my list of places to love! We bought an old finca (farm) in the middle of Mallorca. 5000 m2 of almond, fig and olive trees and lots of peace and quiet. In a B&B in a nearby village I organised my fourth ‘write your book in a week’ workshop. The lovely weather, wonderful surroundings, great service and pure food helpt the participants to focus on the task ahead. The next writing week (with an excursion to our finca) is May 11 – 18, 2014. World citizen As a traveling Dutchie I ran into some problems with ‘the system’. After being knighted by the Major of Amstelveen a few years ago, the new Major kicked me out of the Dutch administration, because I did not sleep enough nights in my own house… I am allowed to live there, just not be registered anymore, so I lose my rights to all benefits of the Dutch system. Weird that this is possible, but these are ‘the rules’. So now I am a ‘homeless person’, albeit one with a house, car and a company… I found out many World Citizens experience the same problems, so I decided to write a Handbook for World Citizens. The world is our playground. It took a few weeks to see that this situation actually provided an opportunity and seize it. I started a BVI company, I don’t pay taxes anymore and experience complete freedom. I am writing the book as we speak, under the palm trees in Curaçao. Is your website still about you? Or are you focusing on the visitor? When I updated my website a few months ago, I decided not to talk about me anymore. In stead I translated all my experiences into concrete tips that I put on my site. It is becoming a wealth of information about charity, free publicity, personal branding, writing your own book etc. I am now working on the English version, so in time all tips will become intelligible for you, too… 🙂 How about your site? Are you still talking about you, or have you made the switch to the visiteer? During the Personal Branding weekends (next one in Berlin, March 13-16) I help a select group of participants to achieve this.
