who’s behind all of this anyway?
My name is Lodewijk van den Broek, I was born in 1976 in the Netherlands and I still live there today with my lovely wife Lianne, my son Jesse (born in 2006) and daughter Esmee (born in 2009).
There are endless ways of defining yourself, but most people use their job as their primary choice, so here it goes: Currently I work as a teacher in Business Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences Utrecht. I’m also an entrepreneur and I find my business on the interesting field where creativity, education and internet meet.
For over a decade now, I have been actively seeking learning experiences in the field of personal development. Amongst many other things I’ve been trained in Covey’s 7 habits, personal leadership, and creativity. Also, I’m a certified NLP practitioner.
I’m a life-long-learner. Not by choice, it’s just the way I’m wired. Collecting knowledge and skills – and hopefully transforming them into wisdom one day – is what I like to do the most. If I can’t learn something, I’m losing energy.
On a level that’s closer to my core, my life revolves around five core values:
Love – Freedom – Fun – Authenticity – Growth
Those five little words influence everything I do. They drive my energy, they influence my well-being, they guide my decisions. So out of the endless ways there are to describe yourself, the one I prefere would be:
I’m a guy that wants to have fun in growing in all aspects of life, rooted in a strong basis of inner awareness and inner and outer freedom, while sharing his love with the people in his heart.
