One of the best things of being an entrepreneur is having 🌈FREEDOM🌈. Today I took a day-off to enjoy a long-weekend of snowboarding in Austria with friends❄️. What is your best thing about being an entrepeneur?👇🏽
From next week on I will be working from a new co-workingspace💻 in Rotterdam! ⠀ ⠀ I’m sharing the space with @aranka.world @hashtag.lifegoals @carolineglasbergen and more business ladies! ⠀ ⠀ 1,5 years ago @aranka.world coached me during the start-up time of @blackbirdnegotiations and I can’t wait to see her growing @prettyambitious_com ! Forever learning🙌🏼. ⠀ ⠀ One of the most important things for me when I started my business was to have a supportive community⚡️.⠀ ⠀ Do you work from home or do you work from a co-workingspace? ⠀ Looking forward to a new chapter💥! 📷 for an interview with @viva_nl ⠀
Have you heard about Daybreaker🌈? ⠀ ⠀ Daybreaker is a global community celebrating UNITY and founded in NYC. It now has chapters all over the world⚡️ and since 1,5 years in Amsterdam. ⠀ ⠀ 6am yoga followed by a dance rave until 8.30-am🧘🏼♀️💃🏼 ⠀ ⠀ Best way to start my day💜. I can’t wait for a next edition somewhere in the world🌍.⠀ ⠀ Have you ever been to a Daybreaker event? 👇🏽 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

Me when I lived on Bali 🏄🏼♀️🌴🌈. Moving back to The Netherlands to grow my business @blackbirdnegotiations has been the best decision💥! Slowly getting ready to move around again..... Where should I go next?👇🏽
In the mood for more nature around me🌏🌱🌸🌈🌊☀️⠀ ⠀ Two more weeks before I’m leaving for snow and mountains❄️. Snowboardig time🏂. ⠀ 📷 @jeffreyvonkphotos
This picture was taken 2,5 years ago after a rooftop yoga session in Toronto🇨🇦.⠀ ⠀ A Canadian brand just launched their product @flow and organised a contest✨. You could win a 5 day yoga retreat to @wanderlustfest in Oahu, Hawaii🌸! ⠀ ⠀ Long story short: I won the trip to Wanderlust in Oahu, Hawaii and brought 3 friends @robinao_ @demeluv @sashas_mind 💞 ⠀ It was an amazing experience full of yoga, meditation, motivational speakers, surfing, running, nature, live music, hanalei (flower crowns), face painting and hair braiding 🌈. We met inspiring people from all over the world and this is where I realised my life was going to change. During a meditiation session from @davidjimeditation I decided I was going to leave the corporate world to follow my heart and find my purpose✨.⠀ ⠀ 6 months later I lost my corporate job, left Toronto, started my company @blackbirdnegotiations and took a plane to Bali🌴.⠀ ⠀ Best decision ever.⠀ ⠀ What were life changing moments for you?👇🏽

⭐️ HAPPY NEW YEAR ⭐️ Follow your heart 💞
Best nine of 2018. What a year it’s been... So many countries, adventures, getting to know myself better, meeting new people and starting my own company @blackbirdnegotiations . Amazing highs and painful lows, but all part of my journey to freedom, love, following my heart and finding purpose💞. I’m grateful for the journey and the people I met along the way. You know who you are. Thank you for being you💞🌈⭐️. 2018 thank you for the lessons and I’m ready for 2019✨.
Taking it all in⭐️. It’s the end of the year. Time to slow down and get ready for a new year full of energy✨⠀ ⠀ Again, it’s been years since I’ve spend NYE in The Netherlands. I love to start the new year in a new place, but this time I felt I want to spend it here! 🌈 Go where you feel most alive 🌈 📷 @jeffreyvonkphotos ⠀ ⠀ Have you decided on where to celebrate NYE yet?
⚡️ GRATEFUL ⚡️ for family and friends💞! What are you grateful for today? 📷 @jo_savagephotography
⚡️It’s my BIRTHDAY⚡️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Time to look back on the last 32 years. I was born in Rotterdam as an only child.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My mom is the youngest out of 10, which made me the youngest of the family. Spoiled and loved by my 100 (!) cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents❤️. My cousins bought me my first pair of ski’s and I was taught skiing at the age of 2⛄️. I grew up in an active family💥. During summers we would go on multi-day kayak or biking tours with the tent. And in winter we would go to the snow❄️. We even had a dad-daugther skiing weekend⛷. At age 5 I was taught to play classical piano, but I wasn’t very talented, so I decided to go horseback riding instead. It was a better match, I still love it🐴. I’m a huge animal lover. When I was about 6 years old I got angry at my teacher for killing ants 🐜and when I was 9 years old I punched an older boy in his face, because he was killing bees🐝. My parents had to visit the Dean...I stood my ground. At age 8 I joined the track and field club. We won a national title with our team and I become 4th at the high jump nationals🎽. At age 10 I decided to never eat meat again. Best decision🌱. Fast forward! I graduated from Law School👩🏼🎓 in 2011 and studied 1 semester in Singapore. At age 21 the wanderlust 🌈 got me. 1 year Singapore, 2 years Toronto ❄️ and 1 year Bali🌴. With almost 60 countries traveled and 3 countries lived, I’m ready to explore more🌏. In 2015 I decided to follow my dad’s footsteps even more (lawyer and marathonrunner). I ran my first marathon ❤️ and within 1,5 years I completed 2 more (Toronto & Chicago). That feeling when you cross the finish line is amazing. Last year was life changing✨. Ending my relationship, quitting corporate, moving to Bali🌴, diving deep into a mindfulness course and starting my entrepreneurial adventure. Thank you to everyone who has been part of my journey so far. Some of you have been in my life for almost 30 years and some a little shorter, but all are special to me! To more happiness, freedom, adventure, love, family and friendships💞🌈🌴⭐️. What’s your story and where did I meet you?👇🏽
2018 is almost coming to an end, so I answered all your entrepreneurial F.A.Q’s about negotiations⚡️⚡️⚡️!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Start your 2019 (financially) successful and get what you negotiate: a better deal, a higher rate or you name it✨.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you have any questions about earning more?! Let me know👇🏽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also: if you still want to join one of my last LIVE Groupcoaching Sessions Negotiating, be fast because I’m planning on leaving The Netherlands again.
