Why blog? Blogging is transformational for me, in many ways. I express this in as many ways as I can. the transformation also lies in transforming seeds into seedlings, seedlings into trees, and trees into blossom, and blossom into fruit. You are an entrepreneur and you want to make your mark, you want to make a difference, you want your clients to be totally transformed, empowered and bearing fruit! Continue reading →
Promotion of your blog is key. Except it shouldn’t be promotion. It should be presenting. Why?
I choose presenting rather than promoting… Your blog is a gift... a present, so promoting really is a dirty word for the power of presenting. Continue reading →
It is confession time. I regularly believe in my own fairy tales. This may sound cute, but the fairy tale that shocked me was when I sat down to write one of my blog posts and heard my mind tell me: “I don’t know have a topic to write about. And then I thought” WHAT AM I THINKING?! HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?!Continue reading →
Entrepreneurs like you solve problems for businesses, organisations, other entrepreneurs, or private clients. You work with your unique individual combination of knowledge, skill, passion and experience to make this world a better place to live in. Something you, and I do, each in our own unique way.
Inspiration is equally important for your blog as a practical approach to blogging. Blogging shouldn’t be a P.E.S.T. – meaning that it costs too much Pain Effort Stress and Time. This is my main reason for drawing inspiration and practical support from entrepreneurs. So, I’ve decided to go for the win-win by blogging with another expert, so that I can help & support two experts and their readers, in just one blog post. As I have benefitted so much from the tips and workshops by Elfriede Krauth, and since we’ve known each other for years and we wish each other the very best, I wanted to share the same smart strategies I enjoy so much, with you.

In 2017, at the end of May, now just over a year ago, I ran my very first international Blog Cafe, in London. That was just amazing! A premiere that opened new doors for me. What was even more amazing is that pennies were dropping for the participants. One of those pennies first caused some hilarious laughter, then disbelief, and eventually major relief. What was that about, you may wonder. Well, this was about the order. How important is the order in which you will write? My answer was: “Not important at all.”
Writing content is my daily habit. I get a lot of questions about this, particularly from entrepreneurs like you, how you could write an e-book or real book, based on your blog. I love getting you into action mode, so I’m more than happy to share with you how I created a book from my blog, in one week, in 2015. If this sounds cool to you, then please read on…
From the very the moment I graduated as a construction engineer in 1985, right up to this very day in July 2014 I had convinced myself that I loved what I did. In a flash, on the 3rd of July 2014, I realised I had deluded myself. I had mistaken being very good at what I did, applying my talents, expertise and skills day in day out, for loving what I did. I had run a translation agency from 2002 up to 2014 that specialised on texts about architecture, construction and technology. Successfully. Continue reading →
What is the paralysing effect of lack of confidence?
Lack of confidence shows up in your life in a myriad of ways. You may never find it hard, complicated, or scary to express your view, your opinion or your expert advice. Yet, when it comes to committing your professional advice to a blog, for the world to see, you may well be struck by paralysis… in the form of lack of confidence. Continue reading →
Do you have aspects about your business that you run smoothly, with ease and according to plan? Aspects you don’t worry about, never cause any problems and usually run like clockwork? I do, too. For me that is blogging and writing content… and I imagine you might have something else in mind. And that is fine. But you know the feeling, I’m sure. And recently, when I visited London, a city I love and feel very much at home in, it suddenly clicked that things that run smoothly can make you oblivious to the obvious. Continue reading →
