kind and gentle as possible,
hard when necessary and always honest
I don’t improve my clients’ lives, I transform them. Often radically. I create an environment where people get more out of themselves, where they become more of who they really are. I am the whetstone that sharpens them so they can cut through anything.
During an interview about my book “How to Become a Game Changer,” I was asked what actually makes me so different from all those other coaches. For starters, through hard work and knowledge, I’ve built a life for myself that I’m proud of. It is a life that suits who I am and what gives me the experience to help others create an environment where they get more out of themselves, where they can become who they really are. To make optimal use of the 24 hours in a day, I am only interested in measurable results. Meditation, marketing, training, sleeping, eating and so on are only interesting if the results are measurable. Based on these results, I can be more effective, more productive and get better results in a shorter time. I teach my clients that too. Finally, I always demand 100% effort from myself and clients, I call it a commitment. It makes me a passionate coach who is friendly and soft when possible, hard when necessary and who is honest in all cases.
What the average coach does:
How I show up:
I come from a normal family, I have parents who care about me and I have not experienced exceptionally bad things. I lived an average life in which I found my way through trial and error. Some courses remained unfinished, others succeeded. In 2009 I started an online marketing agency as an independent entrepreneur, did this for several years until I found out that it was not satisfying me, that my relationships were making me unhappy and that I always tried to please the people around me. Conclusion: I pretended to be different than who I really was. I immersed myself in personal development, was officially certified as an international high-performance coach and achieved major breakthroughs and transformations with my clients. I made my coaching business successful in a short time. Now I only do the things I really like, with the people I love and I only coach clients with a winner mindset who know that there is always the next level. I pass the ‘difficult cases’ to a therapist.
This is my business:
This is me privately:
If you google me, you will find that I wasn’t always like I am now. Many years ago I had no backbone and I was always trying to find myself through others. I’ve been the ‘nice guy’ who was a chronic people pleaser. These transformations were necessary to become the man I am today.
