Are you settling for less than what you deserve?

Are you settling for less than what you deserve?

Have you ever had this?

  • Working 70+ hours a week
  • Working at night and during weekends
  • Not getting paid your worth
  • Months of not being sure how much income you will have
  • Long commutes every day
  • Working to win a new project for weeks that eventually doesn’t happen
  • Clients that don’t pay on time
  • Changing a design a 100x because the client constantly changes their mind
  • Going to networking events at 6 AM
  • No time for family, friends or simply getting away from your desk
  • No clue how to get out of this unfulfilling way of life

Do some of these points sound familiar?

This was my life about a year ago.

I was working as a freelance graphic designer and this was what I thought being a business owner meant.

I was working my butt off and the more ‘successful’ I got, the busier and less happy I became.

The problem with my work was that it just wasn’t scalable.

Every single project was custom. I’d have to start from scratch, which took a lot of time, effort and what used to be fun, had become frustrating.

“I knew I couldn’t keep on doing this for the rest of my life, but I had no idea what else I could do.”

I wanted something that would actually fulfill me and would give me time, location and financial freedom.

It wasn’t until I discovered an online education academy that I realized what opportunities were out there for me.

I had gone to business seminars and workshops before that talked about creating a business structure like the academy has for yourself. But I had no idea how I would do that, nor did I have the resources such as the right people, the knowledge, the product or the money to recreate something like that.

Suddenly, it was all there, ready for me to tap into something that was already tried and tested for nearly a decade. For 10 years was fine-tuned into a business model anyone could succeed in, as long as you have the drive and willingness to learn.

I knew right then and there that this was my path.

What’s yours?

Shoot me an e-mail, I’d love to hear from you and get to know you better.

Design your own life,

Find Your Tribe: My First Dutch Meetup

Find Your Tribe: My First Dutch Meetup

Strangers and yet, old friends

As some of you may know I am Dutch and I’m from a tiny country called The Netherlands in Europe. And last Sunday, for the first time ever, we had a meetup with some of the Dutch members of SFM.

 

It was fantastic to be able to meet everyone in person. People you have connected with online for ages and now to be able to hug them like old friends and yes, speak Dutch with! Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE our international community, but sometimes it’s just really nice to chatter away in your native language.

Especially when I mentor Dutch members in their own language, when everything they’re learning is new, is great and makes it a whole lot easier!

 

I created a short video for you after our little event, click below to view it.

 

 

Where is YOUR tribe?

Would you like to find out if my tribe is YOUR tribe? A community of like-minded people that are loving, caring, supporting? And are all working towards the same goals of creating a better quality of life?

A place where you can learn to create a business that will allow you to design the life you want in the most meaningful way.

 

If you do decide to check it out for yourself, feel free to get started here with a free 7-day video series. It explains to you what the education teaches and how it could change your life. If it’s for you, fantastic! If not, no harm done, I mean, it’s free! Wishing you all the best.

Find your tribe,

Groetjes! 😉

What my parents taught me about life

What my parents taught me about life

I absolutely love my parents, they are so wonderful, have always been there for me and my brothers and I’m so thankful to have them in my life. 

Only lately I really realized all the great values they instilled in me.

 

Growing up I was taught to…

Never give up on my dreams because I needed them.

Never to compromise my morals because they make you who you are.

Never hide your feelings because someone’s willing to hear them.

Never think you’ve got it all figured out because next moment you won’t.

Never live life in the past because then you’ll miss out on now.

Never let people bring you down because they don’t deserve to.

Never be someone you aren’t because then you will never know who you really are.

Never let someone tell you how to feel because it’s not their right to.

Never give up on something that feels right because it probably is.

Never worry about the petty things because they don’t matter.

Never run away from your problems because they always find you.

Never be afraid to take risks because they make life worth living.

Never let someone take away your happiness! BECAUSE IT WAS NEVER THEIRS!!!

My point is, my parents have always wanted the best for me. To be happy and to live an abundant and fulfilling life. Seeing this list of values reminds me not to play it small in life, but to go after what I want and to create the life I desire.

 

And most importantly: never forget to tell them how much you love them!

The ONE question you must ask yourself TODAY

The ONE question you must ask yourself TODAY

Every day, this is the most important question to ask yourself for your online business:

What is the one action I can take to help me forward today? 

This question really helps to put things into perspective when you look at that long to do list.

What really matters?

What will impact my business most?

What is important and what is just busy work?

Get clarity

Celebrate Every Single Victory!

Celebrate Every Single Victory!

Since I started my online business last year, it has been a rollercoaster of experiences, emotions and learning curves.

But one thing that’s absolutely drilled into my head is to keep celebrating every single little victory.

So even something as making a small sale for a product I’m an affiliate of, celebrate!

Realize that there was a time when you didn’t know how to do this. And although it seems so normal now, appreciate it. Because now, you are ready for bigger things and you need every small victory to get to the big ones.

Celebrate: 

  • Dance around in your living room.
  • Sing along to your party songs (no matter how out of tune you are).
  • Give yourself credit for making this happen.
  • Remind yourself that it is something great that you have accomplished.
  • Write it down in your notebook or put it on the fridge to remind yourself of your awesomeness!
  • Pour yourself a glass of goodie-ness, because you are killing it.

Keep that passion alive and stay awesome, 

Have a great week!

X Nicole (and my boyfriend Robin, he’s also happy that we’re making sales!)
