You will write your book in much less time than average first-time authors take, and you will have more fun doing it! You will discover the answers to the big questions, such as

  • What is your dream, for your life as well as your book?
  • Who will benefit most from reading your book?
  • How can you structure the book in the best way for your reader?

Follow the advice of two authors who have helped hundreds of people create their books and see your book come to life in just 100 days!

About 1.5 years ago, I wrote a blog on how to publish a book in 1 month (in Dutch, on When I met Mindy at a Blackstar event (Ecademy), we talked about the possibilities on setting up a partnership by writing a book together. As a bookmidwife, Mindy specializes in delivering people’s books. For me as a lifehacker and life coach,  I am helping people to get clarity on what it is they want to achieve in life (and whether a book fits into that 🙂 ). On top of that, I suggest different tools and exercises to actually achieve these dreams in less time. So, it was a natural fit for the two of us to create this book. After all, we are two coaches who both believe passionately that if people want to do things in life, they should find a way to do them and they can do them quickly and easily. Did you know that 83% of people interviewed said they dreamed of writing their own book? The problem is that most people never even start, much less finish their book…

So, if you have “a book” in you, it is time to think about how you’d start writing it. Buy this book now at Amazon, Ecademy Press or directly through us and start reading first. Have fun with the exercises and create your own book. We want to hear you shout when your book is in print and we want you to see you reaping all the benefits that a good book can give you!

Fibonacci Dancing

June 23, 2009

Together with 2 friends I started another blog called Beyondia. Be Inspired to look beyond today and any day 🙂

Anyway, Bea wrote an inspiring piece on Fibonacci and a guy who starts dancing on his own, just for a while, keep watching and witness how Fibonacci comes out to play…

Of course, if you need more background, just read Bea’s article! Oh, if you want to know what Fibonacci’s real name is, you have to read this one too!

Have fun,


Is Gawkk “Twitter for Videos”?

April 9, 2009

We all know Twitter, right? Twitter is a micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read other users’ updates known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length. Just to make sure you know 🙂 Oh, by the way, you can also follow me on Twitter via if you like.

Twitter has its limitations, because it’s text only. Gawkk seems to become the  “Twitter for Videos”. It was launched by Gary Culliss and Thomas Mango.

www.gawkk.comWhat is it? is like a “Twitter for videos” where you can discover, share and discuss videos from around the web with your friends and followers by answering one simple question: What are you watching?

To start a conversation, Gawkk incorporates video from thousands of media sources across the Internet, but you also can add a video from any website and then share and discuss it with your friends and followers on Gawkk.  By combining a powerful video discovery engine with a social messaging platform, Gawkk provides a simple and effective resource for finding and discussing the most interesting videos from around the web.

So, Gawkk seems like the video shortcut you’ve been waiting for 🙂 Gone are the days of scrolling, searching videos on all those platforms like YouTube.

I hope you like it too and let me know what you are watching, ok? 🙂

Have fun, always,

Nederland Innovatief

Na lang wachten heb ik eindelijk de spits afgebeten… mijn eerste artikel over Nieuwe producten bedenken is verschenen op Nederland Innovatief, weblog over innovatie in Nederland. Willy van Bragt heeft het initiatief genomen om met deze blog te starten. Een tijdje terug vroeg hij me om af en toe een artikel mee te schrijven en ik heb met plezier ingestemd!

Nu, wat kan een Belg vertellen over innovatie in Nederland 😉

Wacht maar af en lees regelmatig Nederland Innovatief, de meeste ideeën zijn immers ook in België toepasbaar…

Geniet elke dag,
