03 Dec How I became a certified teacher Dutch language
I am a certified teacher Dutch language and culture and I love to support you in learning Dutch and getting to know all about Dutch culture. How has that happened? The idea of having my own business has long time been a no-go for me. As a daughter of entrepreneurs, I just saw the disadvantages of owning a business. Mom and dad always had to work. Although they did a lot of things aside, the time I was a teenager I just saw them working all day-all night… Definitely not something I wanted. So, how have things evaluated?
With over ten years of experience as a team leader I felt something had to change. Especially the last years I was busy as leader and HR advisor with sustainable employability, talent development and vitality. As I supported others, the feeling of unhappiness at work started to grow within myself. Not that I didn’t like the themes, I felt I couldn’t follow the rhythm of my body. Within my company I started talking about this. The issues I was facing. I had the luck they gave me the chance to get some advice from Monique Peters.
Very soon I had to face the truth, I knew very well what I wanted, I just hadn’t had the guts until then.
After a few sessions I knew what to do. I wanted to support expats with starting up their life in The Netherlands. I wanted to become a certified teacher Dutch language and culture. Learn expats about Dutch language and Dutch culture. And off I went. I asked support from Diana and Steven. They’re experts by experience on working remotely and owning their own businesses. As my husband and I also had the dream of some more travelling by the time the kids were grown-ups, we were already following them for a few years.
A few months with all kind of tasks followed and my dreams were getting more and more clear. At that point I decided to quit my job and step into the Business Bootcamp of Wonderlijk Werken. Together with 6 others off we went. We got so much support, as well from the team as from each other. I am grateful for that the rest of my life. During those days Better Understanding was born. Aside from this part I also followed a post graduate HBO study and I became a certified teacher Dutch as a second language. Now I love to support you with these same powers. Are you ready for learning Dutch? Just schedule an appointment for a free trial. Love to support you, from the bottom of my heart ♥
