Life is a roller coaster…
Filled with ups and downs and high lows. Being in business is too. It’s the bumps in the road that really make us stronger, and challenges us to get bigger and better. It’s never really going to be smooth, we’re just getting better at dealing with the bumps….
And you just never know when the next bump in the road is going to trip you up do you?
The bump in the road
I hit a bump in the road recently, things were moving forward nicely with my life and my business. I was happy, the special people around me were happy and I was thinking – life is great again
And then BAM… you’re thrown into a whirlwind of stress and drama and you just have no choice but to down tools and deal with it all.
But this time was different, this time I was different.
This time I was more in control of not only my life, but my business as well. I was able to step out of my business, do what needed to be done in my personal life to get things back on track and then get straight back to where I left off in my business.
You see, I’ve learned a few key things in business that keep it strong and running smoothly, even when things get stressful. And I’ve learned to master them, so much so I cannot even believe how far I have come, my business has come, and now my clients too. And I want to share what’s working for me with you.

A life lesson learned…
Around the age of 12 my mum was doing voluntary work with the sisters of Mother Teresa in Rotterdam working for the homeless. One day Mother Teresa came to visit, yes the real Mother Teresa, and we had the privilege to drive her from Rotterdam to Amsterdam.
A 45 minute drive with one of the most amazing women in the world.
Going on a road trip with Mother Teresa!
We were beyond excited, and in awe. Her intense presence struck me so much and at the age of 16 I went for 10 days to Calcutta, visiting her homes, meeting Mother Teresa and holding hands of the dying and playing with the orphans. Two years later I would spend another year living the life of her Sisters, this also gave me the opportunity to live very close to her for one month in Rome.
The more the years go by the more I understand that what she had been teaching just by her way of living:
She had such a love for people, no matter how small or big or dirty, how poor or how rich, she was fully there for each person, laser focused on what she had to do at each minute. She was really doing what she had to do: so if she was talking to you – she was fully there.
She created a huge impact, not because she wanted to but because she was fully dedicated to what she did every day, the little things with great Love. She was on purpose and fully present and she moved mountains with this attention and presence. Small steps but massive results.
The biggest breakthroughs come from the simple things done well and done over and over. If you are really committed to doing all the little things with consistency and full focus – your business and life will grow way bigger than you ever imagined!
How it changed my life and business
Being completely focused on small steps consistently, inspired me in the first place in my personal life. It allows for more time and freedom, without the overwhelm when life takes over. However, I never considered how valuable this would also be for my professional life.
Before – I was busy doing everything, wanting to help everyone and at the end not making any real money. Does that sound familiar?
I knew something had to change: as a single mom I have the responsibility of my two young children, building a business without any profit was just not an option.
Setting goals and not reaching them was starting to really get me down.
Until I discovered: to focus on the small steps that I could do over and over again to get the results I wanted, was the fastest way for my business to grow – consistently.
I got clear on what the small steps were and worked to master them and within 4 months I had tripled my income!! And the great fun is, that I know how I can do that again and again!

Do you recognize this: just running out of time? The list of things to do just keeps growing and your own ranking becomes lower and lower. Since that is where you put yourself, isn’t it? There are so many urgent things to do to help out others. And to be honest, you simply cannot say ‘no’? Everything is so interesting and you want to help everybody… And so the result is that you feel overwhelmed again and again.
Help, some peace and quiet?…
Do you feel like losing control more and more? You just keep running around, on the edge of panic… What would happen if you would just stop and take a minute for yourself?… Be honest, what would happen? How would it feel to take some time for yourself? Totally relax, not having to do anything? Can you free yourself completely, can you dream about the things you really wish for? What helps you relax? What do you allow yourself to recharge, so you can be satisfied and grateful at the end of the day. Can you? Are you allowed to? And if not, what is blocking you? Or, who tells you you cannot?
Running out of time…
So often I hear how difficult it is to set this time apart for oneself, all be it only a few minutes a day… And from my own experience I know what it is to keep running, since there are always so many things that need to be done. And yet, just stop for a minute… What is truly important for YOU, personally and professionally? Just close your eyes and let the sun give you it’s warmth, thus letting all your worries fade away, so you can be energized.
How I do that?…
As a single mom running her own business the last couple of weeks were for me quite a challenge, to say the least. One after the other the children got sick and there were so many things to be done for my business and clients. Day dawns, broken nights or not… and so things became quite foggy in my head.
At these moments I am so grateful for my to do lists: based on the actions which give me the biggest result towards my goals, and not based on emergencies. In one glance I can see what I really need to do to get the most out of my limited time. This focus saves me loads of time. Job done I can return to my emergencies, in this case, minding my sick children. This allows me to be fully present to them, without guilt or frustration about ‘oh, I should…’ Satisfied I can let go of all the rest. That’s off for later. And in the evening, despite everything, I can pick up my ‘golden’ booklet and look back in Gratitude!
