  1. Nice to see it from this way.

    Give insights and heroism in how I do it.

    I now have a choice to do it differently.

    It expands my consciousness.

    As a celebration I had my body cleanse with a liver / bile cleanse. And on Saturday bio energy therapy and Sunday a wonderful ride on the racing bike 120 km and then another 30 on the eBike to family day at Busloo.

  2. That was interesting. It was so insightful to see why I would be an ideal client for someone, and what I would then do for it. Also I realized that it's not always logical to refer someone, so it's not a bad thing at all to ask for it!

    How I will celebrate? I found something fun but I won't tell you:)

  3. I love this week. Be more aware of being an iDeal cliënt too. It’s not difficult to Thank someone, to see, to acknowledge, to share, to refer. Good energy, good vibes.
    I party and celebrate this weekend with friends!

  4. What did you get out of this week’s assignment?
    A dutch saying, Wat gij niet wilt dat u geschiedt, doet dat ook de ander niet. Which basiscally means, what you don't want to happen to yourself, don't do this to someone else.
    but this time it means that you should also be an ideal client for the companies you deal with. If not you do not "deserve" to have ideal clients yourself.

    What did you learn from doing this week’s process?
    That I am a pretty good customer, 🙂
    How are you going to celebrate your completion of this WOMB week?
    I went to the sauna.

  5. Dear Nisandeh and Vered,

    Thank you so much again for another WOMB week!

    1. From this week's assignment I got the time to work on my mindset and further advance in the interviews with my ideal clients. I also obtained precious information, insights, rapport, and very probably, a great business partner.

    2. From doing this week's process I learned that:
    * it is fundamental to become the partner you want to have (as in business as in life)
    * in order to become someone's ideal client, it is important to simply ask
    * in order to create a remarkable product and/or service it is fundamental to ask the right questions to ideal clients

    3. Yesterday I celebrated the completion of this 8th WOMB week by meeting up with a great friend of mine and talking about the awesomeness of this week.

  6. What did you get out of this week’s assignment?
    Again it deepens the meaning of the concept of thë ideal cliënt and the importance of it personally and for business.
    It deepens the awareness of importance of aiming for ideal clients, having ideal clients and aiming to be one myself. And being aware for whom I wànt to be an ideal client for longterm.

    What did you learn from doing this week’s process?
    It makes me more aware for whom I am a client and for whom i want to be or stay an ideal client and why. And it makes me happy to refer to people and a few times I allready felt that it makes them happy too. I will go on with referring, I did it allready but can do more for more people.
    The proces gave me the feeling that i'm an important step closer to a real business.

    How are you going to celebrate your completion of this WOMB week?
    This weekend I'm going to play the kaval ánd exercise together with my husband for his 40-year-jubilee as an accordeonbuilder end of september; being in the pre-program of the invited semiprofessional and professional musicians;
    On sunday we will visit the reunion of the late and famous festival Folkwoods in Eindhoven, and meet a lot of people;
    This weekend we are pre-partying because my youngest son found himself a good appartment this week. He wil be the last It's still a secret and surprise for our family-members.but I am allready excited about this next step in life, for him and for me/husband. Howcan I use the new space in my house in favour of both our businesses?
    This weekend I am looking at my PersoonlijkeKracht-rapport and it gives me cues abour how to develop my business.

  7. Hey there,

    so...
    I got proof of what I should chance and picked a forum (it's about compatibility of family and career) where I commit to comment and help spreading their message at least once a week.
    I knew that there is a connex between my support for others and my success and I always found ways to support others, but not always on the same level like interact if you want to have people who interact. But now I give it a try to help on the same level and keep you posted.

    I treat myself with a new book which is just perfect for my upcoming holidays.
    See you latest on 29th of august.
    Happy holidays!

  8. CELEBRATION
    1. What did you get out of this week’s assignment?
    It is actually fun and nice to send a positive recommendation out in the open.

    2. What did you learn from doing this week’s process?
    These excercises about being myself an ideal client made me experience and see that it is actually fun to recommend someone or a company when I am more than satisfied with the services provided. The key for me is that they didn’t ask for it. Now, ofcourse, I did it because of this program. I realize that I am fed up with all the reviews I am asked to give - all the time, but that recommending on my own initiative makes me happy as well.

    3. How are you going to celebrate your completion of this WOMB week?
    Because of the environment I don't take long and daily showers anymore. But today I will indulge myself a bit and feel happy taking one (not too long though).

    Thanks for this week’s assignment. I will make sure I recommend more often. I have put it in my calendar on a regular note 🙂

    1. Hi Manny I can relate to that.

      So often I get in my inbox if I want to rate the supplier that I do it very little. But it is nice to do it on my own initiative or because I am satisfied. That feels good.

      1. Thanks for letting me know. Sometimes I wonder if I'm not nice enough. Good to know I am not the only one who feels a bit like reluctant to comply :-).

  9. 1. What did you get out of this week’s assignment?
    Some valuable insights. I need to change and I need to whom I'm an ideal client for and let my clients know what I consider an ideal client to be.

    2. What did you learn from doing this week’s process?
    That I consider myself to be an ideal client to some businesses, but I can't leverage that to get some ideal clients of my own. There is no win-win. I have to see if I can become an ideal client for someone else who also can be an ideal client for me. Not always, but at least there should be situations in which this can be vice-versa. Making it a win-win-win.

    3. How are you going to celebrate your completion of this WOMB week?
    We had a hell of a busy week. I'm more or less in survival mode. Today I just take it easy. Tomorrow have to do some work to get my answers for next week's assignment.

  10. What did I get from this week's assignment?
    Clarity on what is important for me.
    I got a call from someone who wants to take me out to dinner and discuss me becoming his long term coach. How is that for the start of a relationship?
    Today a package arrived with gifts for my newborn daughter. Another client had followed along with the story and sent some really thoughtful gifts. A children's book and an engraved cutlery set.
    I really think the mindset and energy invited these 2 results in my life.

    What did I learn?
    That what companies need to do to get me to move from client to ideal client is really simple. So which simple things can I do to support my clients to make the move up? (evaluate and overdeliver)

    How am I going to celebrate?
    We celebrated by having our first walk outside with the three of us. Baby slept through it, so I assume it was amazing for her a well.

  11. I got out of this week: schedueled takks with my subcontractors and providors. Let experts figure out the how - always.
    Learned why I am reluctant to refer good subcontractors. I want stable situations with limited change. When referring, it feels like i'm endangering that stability and it will lower their speed of execution. Both can be fixed with sla contracts. That's better then ignoring it.
    I'll go to the sunday market as a celebration.

  12. Week 8
    What did I get out of this week

    What I got out of this week is how the reverse psychology really does have a impact. Looking at it from the other angle how I could be the ideal client made me realise that it is important to really connect with your ideal client to know what they need so you can give to them what is the most important. For me that meant the real connection and trust and a place of safety.

    I celebrated today by visiting my aunt in Amsterdam and spending some quality time with her

    1. Yes! I recognize this. Thanks for putting it into these words, Nanda. Just keep talking into that microphone 🙂
      Hope to see you soon in our Buddy meet up.

  13. What did you get out of this week’s assignment?
    - An improved way of looking at being a client and a provider
    - Ideas on how to improve my existing client/provider-relationships and results
    - A nice conversation with my bookkeeper about how this week's assignment made me respond quicker to her e-mails

    What did you learn from doing this week’s process?
    - That being an ideal client or provider is all about relationships
    - That it has everything to do with how the mainstream Dutch culture looks at it mostly (which is much more 'we the consumer' VS 'they the companies'...almost exactly the opposite or at least quite a strange form of relationship)
    - That it has everything to do with how I personally look at relationships in general, subconscious blockages on it etc.
    - That it's quite natural for me to refer and that a lot of times, Dutch people tend to be quite stubborn and want to figure it out themselves anyway. That didn't stop me from referring, but I notice I'm doing it more subtle now.

    How are you going to celebrate your completion of this WOMB week?
    - I've just completed a long week in order to finish the project I've been working on for the past 6 months. So I'm going to make this a big celebration...probably going for an extra short holiday in september.

  14. What I have got out of this week assignment is that I am on the right track for finding what makes me happy and what I want to do.
    That thinking about me beeing a client and what kind of clients I would want to have dos not count for my main business because parents come to me for beeing contracted and there for free of payment for theme. The parents who come to me without beeing contracted are willing to pay much more and for theme I am the expert.
    It also brougth me that I have to ask the questions to my co owner in the other company because we have to take the next step in our business and sharpen again who will be our ideal client will help us to developpe it.

    How I am going to celebrate is by letting me drive to the swimmingpool on sunday and try to achive 2 x 500 meter.
    It is asking commitemend from me and determanation to come back to my pre operation level of swimming and it will help me to set goals and achive theme.

  15. What I got from this week's assignment is that I have not yet found any provider that I feel passionate about.
    I have better clients to me than what I am to others.
    Now that I am conscious of it, I will pay better attention.
    And I will think about what prevents me from becoming an ideal client, and how to avoid that my clients feel the same way.
    Today as a celebration I will do an Instagram live with my clients. I hope at least 3 show up! It will be fun and will give us all some well needed visibility.

  16. CELEBRATING ideal client PART 3

    1. THIS IS WHAT I GOT OUT OF THIS WEEK’S ASSIGNMENT

    I found it á confronting but very valuable assignment to flip the coin and to look at my self through the way eyes of my provider: just good á client am I?
    The power of actually asking the providers instead of assuming what they find ideal was equally powerful.

    Both were absolute eye-openers to me.

    2. THIS IS WHAT I’VE LEARNED FROM DOING THIS WEEK PROCESS
    Like I myself wish to evaluate my clients relations on a regular basis I should do the same with my providers as things might indeed change along the way.
    In my various positions as a teammanager, we’ve perform a Supplier Score Card check with our providers during which we check how they deliver against the contractual agreements, KPI’s and SLA’s.
    This weeks proces has shown me the powerful insights you get from evaluating together. It adds an incentive to perform even better because you know that your effort will be evaluated and when performed well, your efforts will be appreciated.
    And if the mutual process needs adjusting, we’ll discuss together how to ensure we create a win-win which feels good for both parties.

    3. THIS IS HOW I AM GOING TO CELEBRATE THE COMPLETION OF MY NEW EIGHT W.O.M.B. WEEK
    We’ve orderd a lovely shushi meal yesterday.

    1. I love the idea of evaluating together, Marie-Louise, thanks. I've noted it down and will start it with my bookkeeper.
      Hope you had a good sushi meal 🙂

  17. 1. What did you get out of this week’s assignment?
    The awareness that it is interesting to think out what “ideal client” is likely to mean for any given specific supplier, while knowing that not all of them want interaction, or referrals, or whatever.

    2. What did you learn from doing this week’s process?
    More awareness that I’d only want to behave like an ideal client to providers that I’m really happy with, and that these providers are pretty rare (like perhaps ideal clients are).

    3. How are you going to celebrate your completion of this WOMB week?
    Take the kids and go visit some friends that we don’t get to see often.

  18. Day 5 – Review your list from day 2 (the providers you're happy with but not an ideal customer for yet) and refer one or more of them - either directly to someone you think might need them OR just by sharing how good they are on social media…;
    Share your ideas, actions and commitment with us every day in the comment box.

    Tonight I will combine this last assignment with how I'm going to celebrate this week: With friends we are going to eat Sushi in a restaurant tonight. I'm curious about the reactions of the friends when I name the companies from day 2.

    What I loved about this week's assignment is how all the puzzle pieces slide together and are connected to each other. And the only way to connect them is relationships. This is also my sacred and science-backed belief: Life is all about relationships. The I-oriented society only makes us more unhappy and we can learn a lot from a we-oriented society. I think Nisandeh and Vered have very much experienced the differences between them because of the different countries they have visited and certainly from the country they come from.

    I also find this so positive about the assignments that I invest more and more in the contacts I make. We share our experiences with each other so that we get to know and appreciate each other better. I also think this is the answer to implement: Do it together under expert guidance.

    Let me close this week with: For whom and what can I mean from you? I would also like to refer you.

    1. Thanks for your insight about the I-oriented society vs we-oriented society. After reading it I realised I would never have thought, in any way, that doing business would have something to do with that. It's very valuable to see that it does.

      1. Hi Rens,

        Thank you for sharing that my comment caused this effect on you. I sincerely hope that this insight will also help you further.

  19. Day 5: Plan / execute the plan to refer one or more of my contacts from list 2, and sharing how good they are.
    • I’ll refer and comment (in a positive way) more on info (LinkedIn posts) of the branch organisation and the universities for which I developed and deliver educational programs.
    • I decided and reserved some time to start doing this, to make an update of my LinkedIn contact (former students) and not only like messages but give a personal positive remark or refer to them regarding topics they are into.

  20. 1. A small mind shift: I am actively going to refer the people I am happy with, instead of them having to ask. It is showing gratitude and connection.

    Furthermore: The thought appears that my marketing should have two sides: that what clients like, but also what I like. Nisandeh is completely correct with: first give then ask.Or do to others what you like done yourself. I started thinking the other way around is also true. Don't do to others that you don't like being done to yourself. I don't like to get caught up in marketing funnels, push mails et cetera- so I want a marketing that is not using/ relying on that.

    2. I learned I am a bitch sometimes, for this matter. I am distrusting (to big companies and that unconsciously extends to individuals)and often looking at: what's in it for me. I am committed to change that to How can I help. Which is an attitude that comes quite naturally for clients, but less so for suppliers. I need to change that- also to become an happier person myself. I believe karma runs in mysterious ways, so I don't want to give because I 'will' receive... just for the sake of giving is good enough.

    I reached out to three of my suppliers to ask what they would like to see in a referral, of which I wrote one already.

    3. I celebrate it by smiling. Just that- focussing on the grateful feeling.
    Then, we are going to be dog-dads this weekend... hihihi

    Thank you all! Thank you Nisandeh and Vered!

    1. Hi Buddy,

      What I learned at the beginning of my entrepreneurship is: Successful people are the first to respond with "What can I do for you?" and not first with "What's in it for me?"

  21. Even though I only completed all of this week's assignments today, my biggest takeaway from this week is this: It's so easy to say something nice about a supplier you're positive about. As I noticed today, putting 3 of them in the spotlight only take a few minutes and it feels great to do it. Thanks Nisandhe for reminding me.

    I'm going to celebrate by cooking my favourite dinner for my girlfriend tonight and spend the evening cuddled up on the couch enjoying each other's company.

  22. 1.What did you get out of this week’s assignment?
    Have to stop being greedy. I didn t know I was. I have so many loyal providers bussinesswise and privately! I Already started changing my behaviour!

    2. What did you learn from doing this week’s process?
    Good providers can always use good referrals. I will give them.

    3.How are you going to celebrate your completion of this WOMB week?
    Going to the beach and have a familyholiday with icecream. 😀

  23. During the week more providers, companies or busyness came by( in my memorie.) so there is more. I got more and more awair of ideal client behaviour and how ‘in love’ or grateful I am and can be with them.

    What happened is that a startup asked me for information questions. Which I will give, with another mindset.

    My celebration: having the afternoon of for a bike 🚴 ride and visit a friend.

    Looking forward to coming week.

    Thanks
