Everyone in the world deserves a life without money stress and a chance to fulfill their dreams. To achieve this, we developed an interactive financial education program to positively influence financial attitudes and behavior and to increase financial illiteracy.
We believe that everybody is responsible for their money and the choices one makes concerning money issues. To manage your money you need personal and financial leadership skills.
Are you managing a company? This training is for your staff to reduce requests for personal loans, advanced salary payments, financial stress, etc. The outcomes of the MasterClass will have a positive impact on their performance.
Are you struggling yourself with your personal finances? You are welcome to learn how to manage your money wisely!
We start in the morning with sessions about money in relation to well-being and happiness, scarcity and the influence it has on your thinking, needs and wants and why saving is important. In the morning a change of mindset related to money will be created. After lunch the MasterClass will be more practical by making personal saving plans and budgets.
The entire MasterClass is interactive.
Our MasterClass takes place with a select group of people. The groups are not bigger than 10 participants.

My life changed in 2006. After several commercial positions in business, I decided to volunteer for six months with children in Peru. After returning to the Netherlands I wanted to change the world. That is why I set up the StartUp4kids foundation in 2009 to offer children leadership programs in developing countries. By teaching them about themselves and social and financial skills, they have the tools to lead an independent life. By following a personal development trajectory and a training to become a trainer and master trainer in the Aflatounprogram that the foundation uses, I found out that giving training courses in personal leadership makes me most happy. The next step followed and I started offering empowerment training to children and refugee women in the Netherlands. But at the end of 2018 my dream came true, together with Peter I emigrated to Botswana to give personal leadership training courses to women, children and managers with my feet in the white sand of Botswana and still occasionally in the Netherlands.
