normally making a career change is already difficult. But that is even more the case during this crisis. Because it means investing your scarce time, money and energy. Often it means ‘pivoting your life’ , personally and professionally.

I left my high-paid job at the end of 2011.

I personally decided to start my plan-b during my career at the ABN Amro Bank already in 2001 starting my online business venture. And at the end of 2011 I decided (see here), to completely ‘pivot my life’ to become an independent business owner. Working from home and making money online and offline. And I have never regretted that. However, times have changed. Everybody now wants to become an entrepreneur.

Anyway, you really have to make sure you take the right decision with the help from the right people. People you can trust.

If I can help in any way, please do not hesitate to call me on Skype on or email me here.

Kind regards,
