Freelancer to Founder

Live Creative Workshop

Learn how to go from Freelancer to Founder in six 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.

There are other ways to use your experience.

 

When you are used to selling your hours and working on projects for others, it can be challenging to see other options to build your (personal) brand.

This Freelancer to Founder Workshops is built around shifting your perspective and discovering how you can step into your unique Zone of Genius and build scalable products or system.

HI, I'M VANESSA

My clients describe me as a creative genius, being their co-pilot in disguise. Helping them to bring their ideas into the world. Better and faster than they would do on their own.

After graduating from Nyenrode Business School, I have worked on the creative side of business for over 25 years. Developing strategies and concepts for all kinds of corporates, love brands, NGO's, creators and entrepreneurs.

But I felt the calling to work on a more personal level. With people. Where I can use my super power; seeing the remarkable in people and helping them to connect the dots to create remarkable business concepts.

Now I host creative spaces where people from all walks of life are welcome to work together to develop their ideas, products, stories, concepts and brands.

I loved the workshop and your approach Vanessa!! Lovely people to exchange this day. Thanks once more. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽"

 
Diego Oliveira, Om Flow Amsterdam

"I want to say to people who doubt. Give yourself time to think about your concept. Let yourself be challenged and stimulated by Vanessa. I don't know anyone else who has as much speed, sharpness and creativity as she does. She helped me find innovative ideas with the right knowledge and inspiration."

 
Arjan van Beem, CityGroup Stay
