My name is Saskia van de Riet and I believe in the power of entrepreneurs like you. I also believe that your contribution is built on passion and expertise. I am sure that you, too, can fulfil the vision I have for you, and that the world really needs your contribution. I truly believe in my vision for business blogging, for the BlogAtelier Foundation, for entrepreneurs worldwide, and for you:

Leave your Legacy
I believe that blogging for your business is a process of which “Live, Love & Leave your Legacy” is the result. You live and breathe what you do as an entrepreneur. You do business from and with love, and that will turn into your legacy, as you wish to share it, and pass it on. Live, Love & Leave your Legacy.

is what you wish to leave behind, after you’ve passed, and what you wish to be remembered for: your personal heritage. By building your personal heritage – your legacy – word by word, phrase by phrase, step by step, and blog post for blog  post, you will grow as a person, as an entrepreneur, and as inspirator. Each day you will benefit from this. Use your blog to share your passion, your contribution to a better world, and to build your legacy. I know that the world will thank you for this. That you may be abundantly rewarded by this, and that can start every new day full of faith and energy to do what you love best.

Why do I want to help you?

I can look back on a varied professional career. Trained as a technical professional, a construction engineer (calculus, calculus, and more calculus), I worked many years full time in the construction industry, specialised in concrete structures. And I loved it, too! In 1989 I moved to England, quite an adventure. For seven years I worked as a hospital planner. Not the aesthetic design, no, the practical, logistic, technical layouts of those hospitals. And in the process, I discovered my knack for languages. I spent four years offering Dutch Conversation lessons in adult education. And eventually, the penny dropped. Language & Technology were a good fit for me, and writing is a skill anyone can learn.

Zo heb ik 14 jaar lang gewerkt als fulltime vertaler Engels, eenmaal terug in Nederland. En voor mijn internationale vertaalbureau heb ik leren bloggen. Zakelijk bloggen. En hoe ongelukkiger ik werd van de vertaalwereld, hoe gelukkiger en succesvoller ik werd met bloggen. Na elke blogartikel kreeg ik binnen 24 uur zeven zoveel offerte-aanvragen. En als je weet dat mijn conversiepercentage op vertaaloffertes boven de 90% lag, kun je wel begrijpen hoe blij ik van dat bloggen werd 🙂

Ondertussen werd ik steeds ongelukkiger van de vertaalwereld…. Toen ben ik trainingen gaan volgen bij Open Circles Academy. En ik ben alles gaan toepassen. En na een jaar of drie nadat ik zakelijk was gaan bloggen is bij mij de blogvonk overgeslagen. Het was me ineens duidelijk: ik moest van zakelijk bloggen mijn business maken. En andere ondernemers gaan leren wat ik goed kon: bloggen met impact! Ik ben nu zo gelukkig! Ik word zo blij van het helpen van ondernemers die zo ongelooflijk veel te vertellen hebben te helpen om dat stap voor stap te doen, te delen en impact te maken met hun kennis en hun bedrijf. Ik voel me zo bevoorrecht dat ik hierbij mijn steentje kan bijdragen. En dat ik samen met mijn klanten mag blijven groeien en bloeien.

In mijn programma’s leer ik jou precies, stap voor stap wat ik heb gedaan om dit ook te bereiken. Als trainer, als inspirator en als liefdevolle stok achter de deur. Jij hebt het nodig om te zien hoe jij het ook kan. Ik laat jou zien in welke volgorde je stap voor stap kunt zetten om je blog jouw eigen succesvolle en inspirerende platform voor Leave your Legacy te laten zijn.
