Sometimes you come to a crossroads in your life, will I go left, right or even straight ahead? In the worst case, you even go backwards or are standing still for a very long time without advancing. I had reached that very point. Enough knowledge, talents and experience, but I had stalled. I was bubbling with ideas, I even had the financial means, but what it came down to, was that I hadn’t dared to make a choice for a very long time. Staying in my comfort zone, staying nice and safe. I told myself that it was a good place to be, but now I know better.
Well, enter Jakolien and Arjan, who pulled me out of that comfort zone without hesitation. Who are you? What do you want? What are your strengths, your weaknesses? Who is your target audience? What are your options? How do you introduce that into the market? Missions, visions, SWOT’s, Matrixes, and loads more were coming at me. At first I thought, these people are crazy, I’m just little ol’ me!!! But that was exactly the point, it’s not ‘just’ me, I am worth it, I can do this, I have something to share with the world, and if I really want, I should really go for it.
With the vast expertise of Jakolien and Arjan and their inexhaustible patience and commitment, I have succeeded! There now is a great business, quite in its infancy, but I have already earned more than I ever expected and the most valuable thing? I have made choices, I now take myself seriously, believe in myself and I really have something to offer the world.
Boost your Business, well hell I did! Many thanks to Jakolien and Arjan of Team Boosting Your Brand. You truly have enriched my life!
I knew that my shop Jenny Boots was great and unique in the Netherlands, but why weren’t my sales where I needed them to be? Along with Boosting your Brand, we determined the goals and a plan of action followed. The confrontation with what I “did not know” about my business and operating results was staggering. However, after some research, I also got the confirmation that I’m on the right path. It was, and is hard work, but also an enormous enrichment of my knowledge and capabilities.
Boosting Your Brand has coached me and gave Jenny Boots a real boost. We doubled our web shop orders, increased retail sales, and our brand reputation has risen immensely within six months. All of this occurred without major investments or extensive use of ads or campaigns. After starting Jenny Boots hiring Boosting Your Brand has been my best decision ever!!!
Growth figures within 6 months: number of customers +67%, number of Facebook fans +540%, email subscribers +29%.
Based upon her “Boost Your Biz” ebook, I contacted Jakolien to find out if she did personal one-to-one coaching. I was quite delighted to find out that she did. After a “Getting to know Jakolien” session, I decided she was the right person to coach me to the next level in my business. I can say with all honesty and without hesitation, this is one of the two top business investments I have ever made. Within the first two weeks of coaching strategy sessions with Jakolien, I had gained new clients at a higher price point, I had more clarity and focus in my business, I had eliminated a lot of BB work and was focusing on MMAs, and, last but certainly not the least, Jakolien is an absolute delight to work with. I found out that I don’t have to work 60-80 hours a week to have a successful business. I can have balance in my life and still have fun. Gee, what a novel concept!
I’ve done personal and group coaching in the past and have found them, for the most part, to be a complete waste of my time and money. No one actually seemed to understand or really care what my business was truly about and what I wanted to accomplish. It was all a cookie-cutter type of program, one size fits all. Jakolien understands my business, has helped me to re-define and re-structure my business model for success, and has been incredibly instrumental in getting me to align my thoughts, my mindset, with the right actions to get the results I want. I highly recommend Jakolien.
Jakolien – The insights you gave me in our Business Strategy Breakthrough session were incredible and I immediately put into practice the action items we discussed. I now have a clear understanding of my big why and my niche. This has completely changed how I’m approaching everything in my business. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You were so in tune with exactly what I needed to do. I can’t wait to work with you in the future!

Jakolien showed me how simple and easy ideas can go viral, but above all how user-friendly using social media for your business can actually be. The training itself was really fun to do with the “aha” moments, but was also fun and full of down to earth interaction. What I liked the most was that she did not push solutions or specific ways, but rather she provided the tools that I could use to get started with, and find out what was and wasn’t working for me. Thanks, Jakolien!
I have attended a training that was given by Jakolien. Her absolute commitment, passion and enthusiasm made that all the ins and outs about Social Media were shared very well. The training was practical, hands-on and educational. Moreover, her enthusiasm for online media is highly contagious.
