Business coach for sustainable entrepreneurs & changemakers

Helping people step into their full potential is my superpower and my biggest passion. And I believe that we as entrepreneurs have the power to change the world by creating new solutions that change the status quo!   

In the past 17 years, I’ve started 3 companies. The first one grew to 85 million euro ($100 million) in annual revenues and 96 staff.  The second one failed fast. So yes, I know the highs and the lows of every stage of starting and growing an online businesses.

It took me 40 years until I finally brought up the courage to start doing what I LOVE doing (helping people step into their full potential) and what I feel called to do (make the world a better place through entrepreneurship), instead of what others expected of me (CEO career). 

And even though I knew so much about business already, starting as a solopreneur was hard. HARD. Why? Because I needed to get visible and sell myself and my brand. Believe me, until a few months ago doing video was about the scariest thing I could think of. And all those perfect pictures on Instagram, aaargh. But I overcame those challenges, and I can now combine all my years of experience as a CEO in business with my personal journey in online visibility to help online entrepreneurs.

I founded the Change Maker Collective to create a community, academy and platform for purpose-driven entrepreneurs. The Change Maker Collective is here to help you launch and grow your business!
