Learn how to grow from freelancer to founder in four hours.

Many creators and freelancers are absolutely brilliant at what they do, and that's what have made them successful. But some of them want more!

They want to do what they believe in. To make meaning, have more freedom and earn ('boat loads' of, not my words) money doing that. Yes, living life to the fullest costs money.

Especially after a certain time, people can feel it's time to reboot their system, to (finally) make way for their own dreams, to propagate their own vision and realize their own ideas.

Jump off your plateau, get unstuck, make a first step, try, just do it. What do you need to hear to make the move? This is it! Because if you are still reading this, chances are that your have been dreaming of building your own product, brand, business, concept or whatever it is.

About me

After graduating from Nyenrode, the Dutch Business School, I gained more than 25 years of experience at the creative side of business.

Not so long ago I developed tenders, pitches, strategies and concepts for multi-million dollar projects. It was a long road to get where I am today. Which includes many trial and errors, smart mentors, lessons learned and tons of inspiration I gained. As well an immense truckload of experiences. On a professional and mental level.

Now I have made it my mission to use all my expertise, hard lessons and creativity to help as many people as possible to become successful and live their best lives with their own ideas and companies.

Thanks to my extensive experience in different media, I know how to develop mediagenic strategies and concepts that attract the attention and resonate with the media and large audiences.

Let's talk. I want to hear all about your vision and desired future.

What others say


The way my head works is like this. Give me a subject and I'm off! But I have difficulties to come up with the perfect idea myself, because there is just too much, everything is possible.

Vanessa managed to come up with an idea from this abundance of possibilities that is close to me. She turned me on and now my head is already full of ideas. I'm going to start right away, it looks like a great thing to work on.


I registered for the bindu workshop, because I had a nice idea, but no idea how to develop it.

Vanessa took the time to help me make an inventory of my idea and to transform it into a written concept step by step. She has excellent knowledge and a lot of patience. Her approach has shown me how to cut my plan parts to make progress in small steps.
