I light fires
Preferably in hearts. If necessary, under feet…
I see opportunities where others see obstacles. I have learned to use bricks thrown at me as stepping stones. I find amazing stories in seemingly ordinary things and people I meet every day. I can take something average and make it amazing. And I have finally discovered that success can be easy if you follow your heart, not your head.
I share how you can do all this, too, through my presentations, books, e-courses, workshops, retreats, RESULTant sessions, and social media.
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!”
Chris Guillebeau – 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’s unusual story of success inspired our public sector leaders to think out-of-the-box and find creative solutions for challenges in their own organization and those of their clients.”
Fons Ribbers, VP Capgemini Europe
“Esther knows how to turn obstacles into stepping stones.”
“Our heroine, they were so unreasonable to on Robinson Island, she didn’t stand a chance. Yet she remained so human and kind. How does she do that?”
Linda de Mol
They call me the ‘No Excuses Lady’ because I get things done, whatever the circumstances. Uncertainty has become my comfort zone.

Walk the talk
In my 25 years as an entrepreneur I have turned many challenges into opportunities:
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?’
Turned a low-cost transatlantic cruise into a life changing experience for entrepreneurs by creating (tax deductible) ‘Cruise your Business’ retreats.
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.
I have integrated my experiences into more than 1000 keynote presentations, two TEDx talks and 25 books.
The international media has featured my story over 500 times and I am among the top 10% of global social media influencers.
