"By building a solid financial foundation, my ideals can last sustainably."
This training has really helped me to tune in with my target audience. My perspective changed from what I wanted to do, to what my customer’s wishes are. I was really able to work on my “story”. And most importantly, I’m now able to relate customer prices with daily income. Of course, my ideals and enjoyment are important to me. But by building a solid financial foundation, they can last sustainably.
Most of all, I enjoyed the free flow of ideas and inspiration during the training between each of the participants and Tijmen. The atmosphere was really honest and uplifting. This is a perfect training for idealistic and socially engaged entrepreneurs who really want to put their ideas into concrete strategies and build a future-proof business.
"It's approachable, conscious, it's fun, and it's the real deal."
It's a very personal short intensive program for small or starting out businesses whilst at the same time including highly applicable tools and plans. It's approachable, conscious, it's fun, and it's the real deal. I hope it helps you.
I feel confident about what I have to do within the next three-six months, I am ever clearer on my group's vision and what we have to offer the world and how we are going to do it.
Since completing the workshop I have continued achieving concrete actions that work towards my smart goals.
"He has a keen eye for what structure is helpful for you. And, he also helps with amplifying your passion and leadership. "
I can recommend Tijmen’s Strategy trainings to every ambitious independent entrepreneur. You’ll make a massive leap. All the essential elements got attention, like my mission, vision and way I do acquisition. Moreover, I feel more focus and am done with slacking.
Tijmen has created a unique program with a variety of models and approaches. He has a keen eye for what structure is helpful for you. And, he also helps with amplifying your passion and leadership. Finally, he has found a great way to put you up for the challenge to make you fully commit to your plans for your business.
"After the program we knew where we want to go and how to sell it."
The program from Tijmen is just great. I really enjoyed it and learned so much. Before we went in, our company didn't really have a direction. But after the program we knew where we want to go and how to sell it. I definitely recommend it.
"I gained much more from the course than I had even hoped for!"
All the different ideas I had in my mind started to take (a better) shape as the program was developing. And now I know what I need to do.
The experience is engaging, full of information and very reflective. It's also an intense training on empathy and vulnerability, in a good way.
I would say that the program is both for early career entrepreneurs, and for professionals who want to take the next step. This mixture is very beneficial as you get to meet and interact with truly diverse and interesting individuals.
Joining a masterclass is about granting yourself the time to think about the future of your business without the distractions of everyday life. It’s deep and practical. It’s going from chaos to focus. And, even the topics that typically are not the sexiest (looking at you, finance) are covered in a fun way.
Tijmen will help you leap past your fears to choose what your business stands for and who you serve. He’ll challenge and advise you. And, you’ll definitely leave with more energy than how you came in."
"Tijmen guided us step by step through our rebrand."
In our effort to rebrand our business, Tijmen guided us step by step through everything that that entailed. Which was even more than we initially had figured. From who we are, our value proposition and our marketing and sales. Coaching and weekly homework were essential to us in this process.
Tijmen is pleasant, reassuring and, not least of all, fun to work with.
If having an impact is important in the work you do, get clarity on how to make it real with a few sessions with Tijmen. Our's were a dynamic combination of journaling, discussion, brainstorming and pitching.
Working one-on-one as opposed to a group setting was immensely beneficial: it gave us time to examine contexts, scenarios and ideas that ultimately made the outcome feel particularly thought-out and personal.

"Focus in my work allowed me to grow and make decisions."
Coaching with Tijmen has helped me bring focus and structure into my work. This has enabled me to make the decision to hire my first employee (and soon a second).
I know now what company I want to build and the work I want to do (and don't). Something I - at some level - already knew but couldn't 'get to' in my daily operations of running my business.
In our conversations, I was able to sit with these questions long enough to let the answers come into focus. Something that always slips in my daily routine. He's easy to talk to, informal, and direct when needed.
Tijmen makes you think about the strategy of your company and helps you translate that to products or services.
You’ll see what your prices need to be (or how many hours you need to make) to support your living. And you and him set a number of super SMART-goals for the coming months. From strategic to super practical.
Plus, small size of the groups creates a lot of space for each other and personal stories. Try it out!
