“Success is achieved by developing your strengths, not by eliminating your weaknesses.” (Marilyn vos Savant)

Sky Hunter from England:
This workshop engages the “higher” forms of business. It’s more a personal development rather than a “how to” workshop yet it connects directly to business. Would I recommend it? Definitely!

At every session you will receive hands-on information, for example on how to design your network or how to adapt a positive mindset, followed by an assignment. The assignment will cost approximately 1 extra hour per week. Weekly we will evaluate the previous assignment and address other current issues.

You can choose if you want to speak Dutch, English or German. You also have the choice if you want to do the sessions face-to-face (in Nijmegen), with Skype or with email:

  • face to face: 60 minutes per session
  • Skype: 60 minutes per session
  • email: 120 minutes per session


You will receive the guide “6 Stages of fame” for free. Every one of the 6 stages of fame has its own advantages and challenges. The guide will accompany you through your life as a musician and help you to avoid some less obvious pitfalls down the road.

Mick Strandvik from Sweden:
“I really enjoyed this coaching and it got me inspired and focused. As I said in a mail, it felt to me like you pretty quickly grasped the core of my strengths and weaknesses and thereby could ask all the right questions. I will carry it with me in my continuous striving. You have great experience of musicians and their difficulties creatively and otherwise. And I immediately felt like you spoke the same language as me, so to speak.”
