February what a beautiful month you were... We said goodbye to our Land Rover Defender Lilly & finally hoisted the sails after more than a year. For us this was a milestone and the example that perseverance pays off. Our original plan was to set sail in March 2020 and not February 2021. As we believe life is happening for us and not against us - we decided to see C*rona as an opportunity and not something that would mess-up our lives. We took action, changed approach and decided that fear would not be our driving force, but acceptance, so we did not sit tight to wait until the storm would pass. We are grateful for the fact that we found the courage to take a leap of faith and just started to drive during the first lock down towards Turkey - our sailing home. We made a road trip with lifelong memories and had the opportunity to build our family brand. Yes we got delayed with sailing, but we can look back at an amazing year with personal and business successes and so many beautiful and wonderful connections with people like you all around the world. Want to join us in our first sailing trip after more than a year? Watch our newest episode on YouTube here. So February you were great and March: you are awesome already with us sending out our very first newsletter! We aim to bring true value with everything we do, so as with our newsletters (and to be honest we just hate spam and love honest and real connections). Our newsletters wil start with a short personal message/story and will have 3 other subjects:
our lesson of the month,
our personal tips & highlight and
our content that is new or special.
Have an mazing day & Feel the Breeze,
Rianne, Gerben & Benjamin
LESSON OF THE MONTH
GETTING RIPPED OFF | We, and especially Gerben, have this strong sense of injustice and when we are being fooled or ripped off we get into this extreme fighting mode for justice. Even more when this happens when your 2 your old son is in need of medical aid: gluing a cut above his eyebrow which costed us way too much money EUR 375,- for 8 minutes work. And there is nothing wrong with it, except it brings us a lot of negative energy, old sorrow and reacting from this place isn’t going to bring us any good. And of course in first instance this went totally wrong last week and Gerben got quite upset. But what we do nowadays to turn it around, is making it not about us and giving it a positive twist. So we decided to donate the money we are able to get back from the doctor to a local good cause. At this moment we are negotiating and the amount is EUR 100 - we aim for 300! So we did fight for justice but with a different perspective which brought us light, positivity and a gracious driving energy - giving back to the community, instead of the ugly - I got ripped off. *every month we share a failure/misstep we made because we believe failures & missteps are actually successes - the lessons in life that will bring you growth.
TIPS & HIGHLIGHTS
Feminine energy & Rianne her nowadays go to Instagram accounts for inspiration: @kinrgy& @plantifulsoul For working productively no matter the circumstances (read 45 knots of wind): noise cancelling headset of Sony (or Bol.com) - you probably have seen Rianne jumping around with it on instagram. Our books of the month that are worth a (re)-read: Amazon: Rich dad, Poor dad & Bol.com: Rich dad, Poor dad Amazon: As a man thinketh & Bol.com: As a man thinketh Amazon: The Big Reset & Bol.com: The Big Reset And our tip: educate yourself on the current economic situation & Bitcoin. Follow these free courses in Dutch via Madelon Vos (we are looking for an English substitute - and will let you know asap) and these 2 YouTube videos with ENG subs are definitely worth a watch: PlanB part 1 & PlanB part 2. *some links are affiliate links and it would be amazing if you use those. We get a small commission with no extra costs for you. It is a great way to say thank you for the inspiration and the ground work we have done, but don’t feel obligated to use them!
NEW & SPECIAL
We launched our first online course - it was a spontaneous one, we didn’t plan it but so many of you were asking how we were beating the YouTube algorithm. So we made this special mini course #YouTubeSEO (EUR 99,- ex VAT) for new and small channels so we can beat the algorithm together - because we believe there is more but really more than enough for all of us.
AND... We are so excited we have 2 very special things coming up: one is our online course (#ModernLifestyle) that we consider being our lives work and the other is something special we can’t tell yet. Keep an eye out on your inbox - we will send you more information very soon!
