I just wanted to help people. Naive me. Little did I know I had so much more to learn. I my defence you can’t be good at everything.... at once. Who needs to be good at everything at once anyway?
I wanted to find people that I wanted to help by going through some self reflection. Starting as a life coach and helping with all kinds of people was not one of my best strategy.
As a friend said to me: You can’t find an jack of all trades in the yellow pages.
OK, So I needed to specialise.
Because of what I have been trough, different story, I like to help the underdog all the time. I also wanted to help people that are at a crossroads. That’s what I did for some years. Guess what? People who are the underdog and are at a crossroads are often people who can’t pay for coaching. Go figure.
Wat’s next? I still need to make a point about angels, right? And something about asking angels for seed.
Who are people I also love to help? People who want to put something in to the world that isn’t there yet. People that have great ideas that could help many other people too and could change the way we live.
Yes, entrepreneurs, people that want to start a startup, people that are in a start up. If I can help those peope with the psychology behind great entrepreneurship that would help the make better decisions, have better insights, have more creativity, come up with more ideas and better ideas, have better connections with people, create and support a better team and be a better leader.
I can help entrepreneurs make better connections with angels. I can help entrepreneurs get more seed.
I was forgetting one thing for just a short time...It is its own culture, start up culture and it has its own language. I need to talk to a lot more people and catch up with a lot more lingo.
If you want to talk to the people you want to help you better speak their language.
At least I was “moving fast and breaking things” while I was learning and improving along the way.
From helping people in IT I knew what a Wizard was and that there can be problems with Voodoo programming and it can be bad if there is zombie computer. Now I had to learn about Unicorns, explosive term sheets and stalking horses and scrub masters (which sounds like a really good DJ name btw)
I am looking forward to the whole adventure already.
If you are an enterepreneur who wants to ask angels for their seed but you don’t know the magic yet of how to create great connections with people or you want to improve your communication to increase your team productivity, let me know.

You just might become a 800 pound gorilla. Who knows?
