When I was 14 years old, I started making money with photography.
At the age of 18, I had three businesses.
At the age of 20, I quit everything because I burned out.
In the years after, I slowly started saying 'YES" again. I wanted to try everything. From building websites, to marketing, branding, events, model and music agency’s, helping former entrepreneurs get back to work, and coaching people. All I wanted to do was learn and share what I have learned with others.
At the age of 24 I was in the finals of becoming business woman of the year in, what has been my hometown for years, Rotterdam. But that made me realize one big thing: I have always been pleasing others and saying yes because I wanted to learn. Not because I did what I wanted to do.
First thing I did was quit the competition. Second thing I did was take time to think. A lot of it. And now? Everything I do, I do from the heart.
