I help people to live more adventurous and intentional lives (the ‘I’ here is me, Roanne; an anthropologist, public speaker and author – have we met?)

For nearly a decade, I have been doing academic and practical research on courage, fear and high-performance. I have come to understand how people can overcome fear or reach other goals in life and work, without having to push themselves beyond their limits, and without working so hard until they’re burned-out. There’s an alternative, kinder road to an adventurous and successful life. Science – and my personal experience – shows that high-performance is similar to courage, in the sense that you don’t have to be born with it and you don’t have to be extraordinarily gifted to start off with. You can just learn it.

I’ve developed on- and offline trainings to help you in this process, and it would be an honour and a joy for me to guide you on your journey. My E-courses can be followed online, from your own house, on the times and pace that suit you and your lifestyle. My programs are available in English and Dutch.

Let’s do this together!

New! One year of Focus & Success

You want to set up a business, publish your first novel, or make art; but you just can’t find the time to do it? You spend too much time procrastinating on social media and get too little things done? You have a dream, but it’s so big and outrageous, you don’t even know where to start? Let me help you. Together, we got this. If you subscribe for One year of Focus and Success, we will start off each week with working alongside eachother in high concentration, each on our own project, each from our own workspace. I will also help you planning and reflecting for the rest of the week, so that you don’t get stuck – and I will teach you how you can become superproductive, without experiencing stress or overwhelm.

This online training is absolutely unique, as it combines the most recent and valuable insights on time management and personal leadership, with weekly action. After this year, you’ll not only have reached your goals for this year, but you’ll also have learned skills on high-performance and stress-free productivity that will help you live your life, in a way that makes you successful, energized and happy. I’ll be your inspirator, your cheerleader, your dead-honest girlfriend – together we can make 2018, our most focused and successful year ever.

Fearlessly Fearful

In this E-course I will teach you concrete, step-by-step methods to learn to understand and control your fears and insecurities. In over 30 lessons, that you can implement in 5 weeks, you will not overcome your fears with the pushy, ‘shock’ strategies that you might know from popular selfhelpbooks or selfclaimed experts. It is my experience that such techniques hardly ever work; sometimes, they make things worse. The Fearlessly Fearful approach is kind but consistent, and most of all it is amendable to your specific needs and wants.

I will teach you everything that I have learned in my research and journey and will show you exactly how I managed to overcome my own fears, so that you can directly start to implementing these methods yourself. It won’t get more practical than this, and it won’t get mor transparant either: I’m giving you the whole shabang, without the glitter and the glamour, but from authenticity and clarity. You’ll see my house, my life, the scary things I do, and my personal, favourite tools to deal with the stress and doubts that show up at my doorstep.

This 5-week training will provide you with deep understanding of your own insecurities and stress-triggers, so that you can start to get control over your fears, rather than the fears over you. Through video-classes, audio-exercises, text handouts and assignments that you can make from your own home, at the end of this course you will experience less stress and feel and act more courageous. Most importantly, you won’t fear a bit of fear anymore – you can deal with it, whenever it shows up. You’ve become Fearlessly Fearful. You got this, and I’ve got your back.

Start: this course is available with or without Skype and Email support. The DIY variant is always open. The supported variant has limited space and only starts after selection and on appointment.
