“The psychology of Improving Yourself”
No one is better able to convey the psychology of “Improving Yourself ” than Emile. Amongst his customers are multinationals, SMBs, freelancers, the Government, non-profit organisations and the individual who wants to grow faster and be empowered in the process.
He became a millionaire at 21 years old and after following advice of his financial consultant got bankrupt. A baker, fashion retailer, tour guide, fast food entrepreneur, pancake baker, real estate developer, politician, and with ‘poffertjes’ to the USA, was the first part of his training!
A personal bankruptcy in the USA caused him to be thrown back again on himself (1986), resulting in his contact with Tony Robbins and taught him for six months during day and night, wrote his first book, couldn’t find a publisher and published it himself (250,000 copies), wrote Tsjakkaa (325,000 copies), was the first Public Speaker in the Netherlands, had his own TV-show in Germany “Tsajkkaa Du Schafft es”, and ever since he is a frequently asked speaker in Germany, Turkey, Dubai, Russia, and recently in Thailand and China.
A man who lives a dream and who didn’t even know he had one!
