Many TEDx-speakers, entrepreneurs and authors seek her advice as she knows how to touch an audience with a personal story. She did so herself: with her book 100 dagen dankbaarheid, dagboek van een zzp’er in crisistijd she inspired a lot of independent professionals. It is an honest story about the struggles she endures during a quest of doubling her monthly income within 100 days.
