Who’s that girl?
I light fires
Preferably in hearts. If necessary, under feet…
See opportunities where others see obstacles. Learn to use bricks thrown at you as stepping stones. Carry your story out into the world and give your business the boost it needs to get to that next level. Success can be easy if you follow your heart, not your head. Let me show you how.
Join my adventurous life journey. Share my experiences on social media. Pick up practical tips & the ‘No Excuses’ mindset in my presentations, books, e-courses, workshops, retreats and RESULTant sessions.
This mind-shift not only puts you in charge of your own life, but also makes you an inspiration to those around you.
“Esther is a rock star!”
NY Times bestselling author of ‘The $100 startup’
“Just being close to Esther makes you believe in yourself.
She shares her knowledge with energy, enthusiasm, and humor. Love it!”
Author Barbara Sevenstern
“Esther knows how to turn obstacles
into stepping stones.”
They call me the ‘No Excuses Lady’ because I get things done, whatever the circumstances.
Uncertainty has become my comfort zone. My secret? Focus only on the things you can influence. Work with what you have.
In the past 30 years as an entrepreneur I have turned many challenges into opportunities.
Walk the talk
Raised €16 million for charities; without any experience, on a budget of zero. Got knighted by the Dutch Queen.
Survived 4 weeks on an uninhabited island in Malaysia for the European ‘Survivor’ TV show. A valuable lesson in group dynamics, which I still use in presentations and workshops.
A 7-year relationship with the biggest playboy on a Caribbean island resulted in a bestselling book, ‘Have you found your Mr. Wrong yet?’
Got ‘fired’ from my home country for traveling too much. The same government that expelled me, then hired me to find a solution for the ‘digital nomad’ problem.
I found the ultimate freedom living outside the system, traveling to more than 100 countries. As a lifestyle pioneer, I now inspire and help others to live and work location independently.
In 2020, on a whim, I bought a piece of olive orchard in Puglia, southern Italy. I fell in love with the ancient trees and the 200 year old traditional ‘trullo’ house on the land. This became a new adventure; all of a sudden I became an ‘olive farmer’, resulting in my unique tiny trullo olive oil.
I have integrated my experiences into 1000 keynote presentations, two TEDx talks and more than 30 books.
My charity initiatives, participation in Survivor and my exceptional lifestyle have put me in the spotlight over the past 20 years. The international media has featured my story over 500 times, in 10 different countries, and I am among the top 10% of global social media influencers.
You can find all publications and interviews in my media archive.
As a writer, journalist, and storyteller I know how important exceptional communication is. I help others to share their story for a larger audience and in the (international) media.
