alone-21279_1920Another couple of weeks to go until a new year. It’s time to see where we are and to look ahead to where we are going.



This year has been my best year ever as a professional coach, trainer & consultant! I am most grateful for that I am able to work with wonderful and inspiring people. The last month I have been working with clients nearly every day! Just as I imagined one year ago.

I have been blogging for over a year now and I am happy to see that I realized my commitment to write articles regularly (every two weeks).

My articles included a book- and a software review. I wrote about how to make your own businessplan and suggested ways to experience more joy and happiness in life.

In one article, I did invite you to send me topics and ideas for blogs. Most of you contacted me by phone or email and 2 examples of articles I have written based on your requests are:

I get most of my inspiration for writing by listening to people and to be aware of what’s happening around me. In my draft folder I have enough topics to cover another year (thank you for your ideas!) but I am more interested in what issues you’re currently dealing with. Are you distracted with all that is going on in the world so that you have difficulties to concentrate on the issues on which you do have an influence on? Is there an issue at work or are you looking for some inspiration and energy?

The offer from my previous article is still on the table! Just write in the comment box below (or write me an email at blog@zilvold.com) your topic and I’ll do research for you and give you my insights. You can see my blogs as FREE help and advice with your issues. The best thing is that others profit from your questions as well!

So, where am I going in the future?

I am going to start to create video content. At first this will be prerecorded but more live sessions will come as well.

I will create e-courses because in my work I see some questions returning again and again from my clients. The online courses will help my clients to take the first steps themselves. This will be more efficient for all. Of course I will still be available for one to one coaching and training.

Also, I will start to build a team around me to help me social media content, bookkeeping and…with the household!

The thing what I am most excited about for the upcoming year is that I will be writing a book and that this will be available January first, 2018. It will be especially for engineers and (technical) professionals.

I am pretty scared by all of this but that’s what I felt like last year when I started blogging.

You see, it’s important to communicate your goals and your ambitions to everybody (and to the universe). This is a first step to realize your dreams. I have experienced this many times in my life, especially this year.

Where are you going in the future?

I invite you to think about where you are, what you’ve achieved and about your (professional and personal) goals (which are in line with what you want in life) for the upcoming year and share them with me in the comment box below.

It will be your first step! Wow, I am already excited for you!

And, yes, ideas and topics for future blogs are welcome as well!

Freek, designing e-learning is my speciality. Let me know how I can help once you reach that milestone.

And I look forward to getting a copy of your book in January. Only e-book or also hard cover?
