It’s my way of showing that I’ve put in 100 percent effort these past 25 weeks. I also had an exemplary role in this, because this originated from my idea. You translated my idea into the WOMB in a way that everyone could get the most out of it for their company. Thanks for that, Nisandeh.

Day 5 09-12-2022 – On the celebration page (Friday), share the lessons you will apply in your life, who you have become, and how you will celebrate completing the program.

I understand the ambiguity and that is because of the translation by Google. Question 4. There comes a time when you have retreated to a lonely place where you have been thinking or working out a new plan that has been completed for you. Do you have a very detailed plan or just a basis for making it into a detailed plan? I am especially curious about the criteria that f… Read More

I understand your comment, Bas and as an explanation: we should find a way out of the paradox that our body is made to move but not to want to move. We then tend to move away from the pain and not look for the reward. In other words, a strong incentive is needed to develop new behavior and discipline is needed for that. Discipline is not sticking to rules but looking for t… Read More

Before I share my insights in a new post I would like to thank Max Hirschel for the incredible work he has done on the videos of the book writing course in 28 days.

Fantastic job and you show what a beautiful person you are!

Thank you very much, Nisandeh, for your answers. I can do something with that. It’s not just the things you say, but how you convey your knowledge when you’re on stage that I learn from. As an example during the training I gave yesterday morning. There was still time left and I visualized my philosophy on a flipchart. How our body has been evaluated by evolution and how… Read More

I also have a second question: What do you think are the most important competencies, skills, qualities and talents that an entrepreneur needs to be successful? What mindset do you need for this?

Dear Nisandeh, I get my new customers through word of mouth. It is exclusively those individuals who deliver customers by doing it on their own initiative, without my input.
