Money Madness!

Why is it that when you need money no one wants to give you any but when you don’t need it you are offered more than you need? Presently I’m in both situations at the same time, Desperately needing money and having investors lines up, but for a later stage than my company is currently … Continue reading

The Case of the Disappearing Dutchmen.

Inevitably in life we all sometimes hit roadblocks. Things that make us stop and either change course or turn around and go back the way we came. And the more we throw our selves out there the more we are likely to hit these events. As an Entrepreneur I hit these more often than most, … Continue reading

20somethings & incubators

So I recently filled out my 20somethings profile. It’s strange talking about myself in that way. Trying to present an fair and accurate picture while not wanting to come across as braging. The core things that I hope came across in the interview I’m going to repeat here, because I was fairly nervous and I … Continue reading

Guides and Pitch Decks.

Okay, so I finally got the first edition of the Guide up for moving to another host state from your origin state with your Non-European Family member.

“Nee, ik spreek geen Engels.”

This happens all to often… I come across someone with whom I need to converse and so I politely ask “Pardon mevrouw/meneer, Spreekt u Engels?” //Translates to: “Excuse me, ma’am/mister, Do you speak English?”// to which the answer is usually either “Een beetje”//Translates to: “A little”//, “natuurlijk” //Translates to: “Of course”// or “Nay” //Translates to: “No”//, followed by a persistence to … Continue reading

Visits from Abroad.

So, things are slowly settling into some form of normality…slowly. A couple of weeks ago we got our residence permits from the IND, though we are still missing My husband’s BSN (I think I might need to head back to the Municipality and find out what’s happening). As mentioned in previous posts I’ve not been … Continue reading

Weeks Without

Weeks without blogging.

Recently I’ve been very sporadic with blog posts and its not for a lack of material to blog about, I have material coming out my ears at the moment, it has, in sorrowful fact, been simply that I have had so much to do lately that I have been averaging 4.7 hours of sleep a … Continue reading

Moving Forward

Moving Forward.

Some times when faced with adversity, moving forward seems like the last thing you can do. When things get tough as humans are usually more inclined to run and hide, moving backwards rather than forwards. And the worst thing about that feeling is that it’s usually just before you are about to succeed. So far in my … Continue reading

Planning a Future

Planning for the Future

From time to time it is necessary to make plans, from budgets to shopping lists, plans are essential. So given the current state of things with money constantly being consumed and a limited supply to replenish it, how does one plan for the future? This question is never an easy one to ask as it identifies that … Continue reading

Sounds of War

The Sounds of War.

///Start of  Transmision/// At around 1000 hrs this morning the war started… Since then the sound of mortars and gun fire has been near constant, as yet it is showing no signs of waning. Who or what they are fighting remains unclear. The media are ignoring the battle that is raging outside as if it isn’t happening… … Continue reading
