“Let people know they are valuable”

“For me it’s not just about success, but more about using my talents and the opportunities I see to help others. The motto of our foundation is ‘Sharing is Multiplying’. We help small local projects in the Netherlands and abroad by sharing knowledge and expertise. We support people in finding a job, also helping students to gain practical experience in our foundation. You will achieve success by working hard to see and realise opportunities that are not visible to others, and by believing in yourself even when the going gets tough. It’s important to think creatively and positively; by continuing to believe in people and by letting them know that they are valuable. Fear – to share or to take risks – does not contribute to success.”
