This is NOT goodbye…

January – February 1996 was one of the coldest Dutch winters ever recorded. Just a year earlier I lost my business, my income, my direction and… my pride. And my first months in Amsterdam – my chance for a new beginning – were cold, grey and isolated.

Spring of 1996 was not a real improvement.
The weather outside slowly warmed up – but inside – I felt lost, sad and broke.

By the end of May I had enough!
It was time to end the self-pity party, wake up, shake up and shape up.

The result… A beginning of an adventure that led to my first evening workshop in June 19, 1996, and what became later Open Circles Academy. 

Today – 20 years after I decided to climb out my bed, and give the world all that I’ve got – we’re counting down the final days of 2016…

An end of an era…

Out of curiosity I checked how many days passed between the actual beginning of Open Circles Academy (my first workshop in Amsterdam Sloterdijk – June 19, 1996) and the day we officially close the company (December 31, 2016)…

I couldn’t believe it… It’s exactly, but EXACTLY… 7,500 days.

7,500 days that have transformed my life, the lives of my loved ones, and the lives of over 150,000 students who shared our path during the last 20 years.

I’m immensely GRATEFUL for these last 7,500 days of my life and:

  • For Vered – my partner, lover, wife, co-founder and co-trainer. Vered was my first trainer/teacher/coach for exactly 3days, until we moved in together and she quit that role and took instead the much more challenging, difficult, often frustrating and thankless role of being my soul 05-say-i-love-youmate. For encouraging me to keep walking the path of wisdom and reminding me constantly that I should ‘get a life’. For the amazing person that you are, Vered, and the privilege of having you in my life – I bow in gratitude…
  • For more than 100,000 hugs I’ve received and gave over the last 20 years at the completion of each training, and during the breaks in my ‘office’ on the stage stairs…
    But even more – for all the hugs I’ve got in the moments before a training starts, when I stood nervous and excited at the back of the room…
  • For every time a Write Your Book graduate handed me their newly published book. Each time my breath stopped for a moment, as I realized how little they know – how this accomplishment will change their life – professionally and financially, but also as an example and a source of pride and inspiration to their children, spouse, family and community…
  • For every time I held the board for someone in the Breakthrough to Success, and I saw in their eyes the moment of commitment, and felt their transformation as they fell into my arms. 092Each of these moments reminded me, “when you save one life it is as if you saved the entire world”
  • For each time that I set an ambitious goal for myself, and my students were the firsts to hear about it.
    And for the way they always were an unending, generous source of encouragement, support, education and care… which not only made it possible for me to achieve these goals, but also to develop a deep sense of gratitude for being supported, and for never being really alone…
  • For all the wonderful, passionate, extraordinary people that joined our events as e-team members You brought so much heart, love, care, wisdom, safety and beauty into my life and the lives of thousands of people you haven’t met beforehele-e-team-en-nisandeh-bbc-april-2015
    . For creating life changing experiences for so many – thus deserving the official title of real-life heroes…
  • And last, but not least, for our amazing Open Circles Amsterdam team:
    Walleh – for saving our ass and keeping me focused on what’s really important
    Miro – for all the fun and for putting me on the spot when I missed it
    Raymond – for your friendship, your generosity, and for keeping us safe
    Silvia – for your care, love, commitment and for always putting our clients first
    Anja – for building world-class teams and creating world-class, life-changing events
    Janieck – for your enthusiasm, focus and commitment to get the word out there…
    And for all of you for becoming our friends and family.

WOW… What a list.

I’m reading back the words I typed, and they feel inadequate to describe what I see when I just look out of my window or in the mirror.

I’m not the same person who arrived in Amsterdam 20 years ago – immature, ego-driven, cynical and beaten.

In the last 7,500 days I became softer, gentler, more patient (with myself and others), more accepting, more loving, more giving and most of all… simply happier.

It’s been a long journey, and I’m glad we could have walked that path together, even for awhile…

But… this is NOT ‘goodbye’!

It’s actually a beginning of the next step… an exciting, empowering new era…
Or, as Miro, our copywriter calls it… an era where ‘the BEST is yet to come’:

  • Open Circles Academy in Tenerife is ready to take you to a whole new level…
    You should expect a new, fresh, engaging content every Tuesday in your inbox.
    It will be in ENGLISH and sent from Open Circles Tenerife – so make sure to whitelist – so you won’t miss an email.
    We’re going digital, we’re going international (and pretty soon… intergalactic too…)
  • With the new one-year Zero to Million – watch over my shoulder program – you will see how I’m creating a new business from scratch and make it into a million dollar business in one year.This is a major transformation in education – teaching by modeling – and what I’m going to do has NEVER been done before!  If you didn’t schermafbeelding-2016-12-14-om-11-21-53reserve your place yet, you can still get the first 30 days of the program for free, so you can taste the new model before making a commitment for the whole year.
  • My new business – name to be defined – will bring me back to the Netherlands to a few powerful, totally new workshops – focusing on small groups of very committed, AMBITIOUS professionals…
    When you’re ready to transform everything that really matters in your life (happiness, health, wealth and wisdom) – pay close attention to my private LinkedIn messages to you, as I’m not going to use the Open Circles mailing list.
  • Around March or April 2017 we will launch what I believe will shake the business education industry in the world.
    We will do something that was never done before, and if you’ll pay attention – you’ll be able to be in the front line, and jump-start your business big time, before the rest of the world…
    So… make sure you actually open our emails, even if it’s just for a moment – looking for that special announcement.
  • On a more personal note, Vered an I begin the creation of a global new society/tribe of like-minded people, which we want to share our lives with for the next 80 years or more…
    When we’re clearer about the concept, we will share it with our inner circle and see who is as excited and as committed as us to create a new type of society/modern tribe and would want to start building the first global village…
  • For the rest, you are welcome to visit us in Tenerife – our paradise island.
    A few times in 2017, we’ll organize an open day, where you are most welcome to visit us13729135_10207453637961608_2109838154707700961_n at home, learn about our way of life, ask us any question and maybe even join us working the Casa Algeria Farm…
  • If you’re not connected to me on LinkedIn – please connect, as I’m going to share some important stuff (see points above) exclusively in private messages on LinkedIn.
    And… If you are connected to me already on LinkedIn… make sure to read my private messages to you…
    There is no way to automate LinkedIn messages – so if you’re not interested in hearing from me – simply disconnect from me, and you will save my time and your aggravation…

So you see… this is NOT ‘goodbye’ but a ‘see you later’.

And until we meet again… I have a small favor to ask…

If your life was impacted for the better in ANY way, big or small, as a result of our work – please take a moment, and share it with us – in the comment box below.

Make 2017 your BEST YEAR EVER,

    Well, there was an impact in different ways…
    I started to realise there is not just “uurtje factuurtje”. We already teach to groups, but still, you can change a lot.

    For me, the main shift was my mindset. I’m still not there, but I know I will! I know I have a lot of knowledge I want to share with the world. So many people can benefit from that. I just have to bring it out! I am working on it – stay in line!
    It took me a bit more than just a year, but I will IMPLEMENT everything I learned in the Biz Uni and even more 🙂

    Open Circles made my business much more steady, by shifting from invoicing an hourly rate to invoicing subscription. By creating passive income, so I have to work less. By instructing 1 to 1, to teaching a group. By saving time to learn me what NOT to do anymore.

    Thanks for saving my business and family life

    Thank you Vered and Nisandeh for your example, practical tips and great training days and weekends. Doing business is fun, learning is fun and working together with other people is fun! Only 1 example: I learned to give but also ask from other people and that has made a huge difference in my life! let’s go for the best year ever 2017!

    Thank you so much for making me and my business so much more. Thanks to all your trainings I know where to focus on and how to handle the business side in so many ways. 2016 is my best year so far and I haven’t even implemented more then 30% I would say. Just my new mindset and basic changes got me this far already. I will continue to implement more and more stuff ( I know my speed of implementation should be faster) and look forward to the new ideas and trainings you will share with us.

    Thank for everything!

    Dear Vered and Nisandeh, thanks to you, who helped me making my dream come true! in 2013 and 2014 I was with Open Circles where I learned how to live a life from my heart and to do the things I love in my business: prevention of burnout and helping people with stress. All my clients and managers/directorsI work with and for are also happy 🙂 I wish you all the best!

    The first Business Bootcamp I ever attended (and I ever heard of) was the Business Bootcamp of 2016. It was a life-changing experience.
    Since then I have been reading books, studying and planning. Since a few weeks I’m taking serious action working my way out from an employee to an entrepreneur.
    Thank you and all the best wishes with the 0-1.000.000 project

    Dear Nisandeh,
    I am very grateful to you for the lessons learned. Maybe one of the most important ones for me is one, maybe you cannot believe this one.

    My important breakthrough is to strive for getting a million and even more on the “Bank of Love” and maybe, but less important, also on my bank account. y giving all the love I have to share, I experience even more love back and find all the opportunities on my path. It seems easy and still it is quite a challenge.
    Dear Nisandeh, hope we meet again !

    Wow, where to begin. First I’d like to say this blog has reminded me of wonderful things I almost forgot. It reminded me how much I have done with and after Open Circles. I went to my first Business Bootcamp at the age of 15 and did some pretty intense trainings for that age (Financial Freedom, Breakthrough to success). I remember being the example for the boards during the Breakthrough to success, with the pleasure of having Nisandeh standing in front of me. I loved it and it was an honour.

    I had written “shyness” and oh how that helped me with the rest of my life. Being very shy can be cripling, now I dare to do what it takes. It was never the case I didn’t want it enough, there just was this enormous barricade in my mind that stopped me from doing it that’s called being shy. Now it’s not gone, but reduced so that it doesn’t keep me from doing things anymore and that’s a huge freedom.

    Later, I joined the e-team. It was amazing how someone from my age could also help, inspire and contribute to other peoples’ lifechanging moments. I have met wonderful people, created a sense of purpose and learnt to be daring and just do it. As an author, I probably can go on and on about my experiences with and after Open Circles, but all I can really say is thank you. Thank you for everyone I’ve met and supported me and was willing to learn from me too. Ho.

    Dear Nisandeh
    Your teachings helped me to come awake as an entrepreneur. I have learned that being content driven is not enough. And for the first time of my life (56) I am setting goals for the new year in business and life. Your education mingeld more and more with personal development. Ik like it. Thanks very much!

    Dear Nisandeh and Vered,
    Quite an accomplishment: 75.000 days of Open Circles. Ofcourse it is time for you guys, to move on, because you’re internationally orientated people afterall.

    You asked about the impact the trainings had on my life. Well, the breaking of a wooden board in the training Success, had the most impact. Nissandeh, I loved your concern for the young people who had difficulty with it. I saw love. The realization that you are stronger than you think, during the same training, by doing a small experiment was also an eyeopener. The impact of debts in Financial Freedom you made very clear. You inspired me to write a book. Thanks for all. Hope this is not the end. Love Nanette

    Dear Nisandeh. I only followed you the last months of the just passed year. You made me aware of being more focussed and committed to my own goals. I am wondering now if I wouldn’t be completely happy when I do work that is appreciated by me and others, just because I can. I do not need to have a little company, unless this is asked for by some ‘customers’. Thank you for giving me insight in what matters most for me: help children of refugees find their way in the Netherlands.

    Dear Nisandeh and Vered,
    I have enjoyed knowing you, so much, you really brought a special energy to this country and made it bigger, more global and open.
    Since knowing you I have written a book to help my fellow travelers cast off mental slavery (Yes, what Bob Marley sang about) and I give workshops on this topic and a workshop on how to deal with micro aggressions (those are the small slights and prejucdices we (many times unknowingly) subject people to who are different in any way, be it gender, sexual preference, race, religion, etc etc). This workshop is necesary because people can actually become sick if they’re subjected to enough micro aggressions without knowing how to react to them properly.

    In my workshops I teach people how to become aware of these slights and respond to them in such a way that you not only remain healthy yourself but create more harmonious, conscious people and relationships. Lately I have even been approached to give these workshops at universities, amd they are received very well and given high marks by students. So even though I have not yet become the money-attracting entrepreneur I hoped, I am doing what makes sense to me and what I love very much. And it was your Breakthrough to Success training that made me realise that that was indeed possible. Vered, I thoroughly enjoyed your book and training sessions for women.

    I still often look at the ten points you gave us. Thank you for sharing so generously of yourselves. I appreciated that very much. Have a wonderful 2017! Till we meet again!

    Thank YOU very, very much for the inspiring words about the journey of 7,500 days … my life was impacted for the better:
    – I went to a Business Bootcamp medio 2014 in order to learn how to change from an ambitious professional to an ambitious entrepreneur.
    – In 2015 I received a big cadeau … Breakthrough to Success and big insight ‘income is not yet enough’.
    – In 2016 I have implemented your Facebook Give Away cadeau Your Best Year Yet after answering the 10 questions!
    – In 2017 I’m implementing in My 2nd Best Year Yet the ideal PMO from 6 9 12 at the beginning to 9 9 9 at the end in order to Double my netto business income …

    Enjoy your lifestyle in 2017 and ‘see you later’ in …

    Yes, impacted it was and is. I did the BBC in January 2015 and then started to come to Holland on such a regular basis that I started to have a relationship with some of the airport security personnel. Some of the things that have changed because of your workshops:
    * I realized that I actually am a business owner.
    * I stopped my negative beliefs about money and about having some.
    * I have been sending out my newsletter (plus a link to my blog) every month since March 2015 getting positive (and some lucrative) responses.
    * I am in the process of organizing my finances and my lackadaisical approach to my money.
    * I signed up for paying sales tax from 2017 on – officially leaving “SMALL” business for something bigger and more productive.
    * I stopped scheduling my clients (which has always annoyed me) and instead use a system (I love acuity-scheduling :-)).

    The list is definitely not finished. I also realize that I have only implemented very little so far – but even with the little I managed up to now, things have changed for the better. Also, with each course I took with you, another wall in my thinking broke down and what I thought impossible or not fitting to my type of business turned into some great ideas and an increase in self-confidence. I tremendously enjoyed the high energy at the workshops and I am also thankful for meeting some really, really good people who have become my friends.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I will definitely send you a copy of my first book (starting next week on that project). All the best for the new things to come and happy to hear from you again next year – in English at that :-)!

    Some of them:
    – 1 year living in Thailand
    – 1 Joint Venture that will bring me to Financial Freedom
    – I know how to work on a business instead of working in my business.

    Dear Nisandeh & Vered,

    Spending 4 weekends with you (and 500 other people) gave me:
    * courage to stand straight for what I believe in
    * insights in what my obstacles are in reaching my goals
    * better relationships
    * the courage to stop my lucrative but not fulfilling “uurtje factuurtje” business and start my training business
    * more clients (my amount of clients grew from 8 people in 1 year to 84 people in 3 months, and counting)
    * focus – and with this, much more fun
    * a network of friends and colleagues that share your (and now mine) ideas of how to run a business and contribute
    * peace. I am satisfied with who I am. I can make mistakes now. This is the biggest gift ever.

    You changed my life. Thank you so much.

    My life has been completely transformed since I first visited the Business Bootcamp. I starteed without a business, a plan, without clients, a product. After two years I have a good running business, I have enough time to be a father at home, because in two years time we were blessed with two children. We moved to a new house.

    The lessons allowed me to become a different person. positive, in charge, pro-active, and realizing more and more of my potential. You have unleashed something in me!

    thanks you so much for teaching, for showing and supporting, for your energy, for your well designed events, thank you e-team, thank you other participants. a big thank you!

    I know how to do marketing with little effort, how to be a inspirational speaker and trainer, how to build remarkable products and have irresistible offers… and for the giving… the wonderful crowdfunding campaigns.

    I can never thank you enough

    Hi Nisandeh and Vered, congratulations on your success for both yourselves and many others. I look forward seeing and probably experiencing what’s next! Having done many of your courses I incorporated many of lessons that are just part of our company. The passive income goals have been reached, having nothing to do with my safari business but it’s done and a very relaxing thought.

    Dear Nisandeh and Vered,

    I said it to you before, recently, that you both definitely changed my life! It was the best desicion ever to go to the Business Bootcamp may 2013. In that year I did go back with some ‘friends’ in october 2013. And what I could not believe: I get some insights! I thought I did nothing in that 6 months but I did a lot! I changed my mindset, my website, my target audience etc. And only that made a very great difference. I bought the Master Enterpreneur.

    A year later I became back to Business Bootcamp and I bought financial freedom en BTS. And the BTS was in november 2015! I will never forget it, you helped me break my board. I am always be thankful for that! I cried and realised it was my biggest breakthrough ever and I realised again IT IS ALL IN THE MIND! So thank you! And of course I will follow you in the path zero to million. LOVE!

    Thank you Nisandeh for the Open Circles Academy. I was one of the last Bootcamp graduates, still new to everything but so inspired.
    Focus, stay in line, help the customer to like me and lots more I learned only half a year ago.

    Bootcamp graduates come into my life and share their wisdom. Helping me another step. I still get inspired bij the three graduates that were on stage, telling their succes story.
    Going to the last BB ever, was a very good decision. Profit marketing and Elements of Succes made it complete. I see my profit climbing and will continu implementing.

    Thank you.

    Lieve Nisandeh en Vered,

    Dank je voor alle wijze lessen; ik had ze nodig! Door alle trainingen ben ik veel zelfverzekerder geworden. Vooral de training Breakthrough to Succes was heel bijzonder en heeft de manier waarop ik in het leven sta veranderd. Ik ben jullie zeer dankbaar voor deze fantastische ervaring!

    Ik wens jullie een fantastisch 2017!!!

    Hi Nisandeh and Vered,
    Im so absolutely grateful to have found you. When I started the business bootcamp i was still seeking for a concept and seeking for inner peace, inner motivation, inner worthyness and a good structure to actually achieve my goals. I got all of that, in the few workshops I followed with you guys.

    In 2017 i start a new study to be able to combine Coaching and nutrition in One program. My Mind Body and Soul concept. I’m developing the concept as we speak. Attracting a team of people around me, to make this work. I definately love to stay connected to Opencircles

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart

    Thanks for everything, Marius

    Dear Vered and Nisandeh,

    Certainly Open Circles has beautified and uplifted my life.
    By following your various courses since 2002, I have felt welcomed and encouraged by you to develop and express myself, and discover more of who I am and whom I can be.
    Thank you for The Art of Intimacy, The Discovery, The Elements of Success, Financial Freedom, How to Write Your Own Book, and especially Train The Trainer, the year in which I learned how to develop enticing workshops in a very professional manner.

    I can imaging that after all that you have accomplished here, you are ready for your next chapter, in the sunshine of Tenerife. Congratulations!
    I will always be grateful to you.
    I pray for you to gain all the blessings of the Lord, and I wish you all success in everything you do here on Earth!

    Big hug and love,
    Hare Krishna

    The best year ever is always yet to come! Every year there are wonderful steps to take, to learn even more, to take risks and start new tings. Every year I also have made mistakes. But I have learned that it is GREAT to make mistakes. That way I learn a lot faster! It was never a mistake to invest time and money in OCA. It has brought a lot of good things.
    New relationshops, friends, businesses, jobs, etc.
    Thank you for all you did and do. You two have been wonderful inspirators. Keep going at making impact on people’s lives. So do I.

    Dear Nisandeh and Open Circles Team members,

    Thank you for the great workshops you organised. As a start-up I regret that we met at the time you decided to move into a new direction. Yet, I am grateful that I have been able to attend the Business Bootcamp and two other of your workshops.

    You have been a great inspiration for me during the past few months and I happily apply the advise you shared. It allows me to approach my adventure as a real business and take decisions accordingly. You gave me the self-confidence to continue the path no matter the circumstances and apply the tools that help me to stay on track.

    I thank you for your inspiration and wish you all the luck with the new direction you are about to take. I look forward to meeting you again.

    I became a better entrepeneur but most important, I became a better person! It was GREAT, I felt honored to be able to be part of the E-team for the last part of OCA. I’ve grown and learned THANK YOU! I’ve made friends for life…

    Last years were ok being an entrepeneur, but 2017 will become my best year EVER!

    Ik werd een keertje uitgenodigd door een vriendin om met haar naar een workshop te gaan. Altijd weer inspirerend en heel fijn om hele oude gezichten van 20 jaar geleden weer terug te zien.
    Er zat muziek in het was feest en daar hou ik van. Overvloed en je handen laten wapperen. Kadootjes zijn ook helemaal leuk, net als alle verhalen.
    Ik kijk ernaar uit om met mensen die allemaal op hetzelfde uit zijn een fantastisch jaar tegemoet te gaan met een paar vrienden en collega’s, dat praat makkelijker toch ?

    I’ve seen you once, I think in 2004 or 2005 at a training by Roy Martina in Germany, then you got together with Roy 2 seminars, in Amsterdam Live in abundance and Elements of success. In January 2013 I was a member of the Business Bootcamp after I started my online shop. I’ve done several day workshops, and online course. Now I am a member of the Zero to Million … I have learned a lot, I’ve been an entrepreneur for 30 years, interrupted by a period of illness. But what fascinated me, new marketing, online business, new opportunities … thinking differently, online products …. Thanks for all the beautiful ones insights!

It was practical, hands-on and I still use that knowledge every day for personal improvement. I was born on the beautiful Island of Tenerife and spent half a year in 2015/2016.

    Dear Nisandeh & Vered, my life has totally changed because of OCA! That’s also why I wrote down your names in my Acknowledgements chapter of my soon-to-be book. Within a few months (spring 2017) I will publish my (bestselling!) book ‘Afvallen met POWER’ thanks to the Write your book course (and all the others course of year 1!).

    I really love the part above ‘For every time a Write Your Book graduate handed me their newly published book. Each time my breath stopped for a moment, as I realized how little they know – how this accomplishment will change their life – professionally and financially’.

    It’s gives me positive vibes all over the place and I can’t wait to see what will happen for me in 2017.

    I would love to give my book about my POWER method to you. I’m super grateful and hope we will meet again in 2017.

I am so happy to hear that you will have open days in your so wished beautifullllll paradise home. I wish to visit soon, I heard you need some help with your gardening.

    I am a startup person to help with self balance of your garden. I dont know why or how, but I got good gutfeelings how to organize gardens. Sort of Feng Shui so the energy flows perfect for the plants and you. My card says, however you wish your garden to BE! It will now be my hobby as I wil implement the things you educated me with to start my own big B. Mother earth has been my therapist for years to heal any human action I encountered that could be more positive and future affirmative. Since I met Nisandeh and you Vered, people come to me ,to tell about Tenerife, about rudolf steiner and the 5 ecosystems.

    I would love to know how mother earth feels in your place , what she gives what I can give. I love to be and share me with youtwo! Thanks for lighting a light so I can enter! Lets capslock it. THANKS FOR ALL THE LIGHT YOU SHARED WITH ME THEY ARE SUCH LOVELY PEOPLE YOU ATTRACTED TO ALL YOUR MEETINGS,AND THANKS FOR PUTTING UP THIS TINY LIGHT SO I CAN ENTER THE PATH OF INVITATION TO LOVE AND WHAT YOUR LOVE DID BUILD UP , how wonderfulllllll THAT is TRUELY ALLL!

    Dear Nisandeh,

    My life has changed big time since the first time I was in a training with you. It was a try out thing about networking if I remeber correctly.Then my first Business Bootcamp, wow!
    The biggest wauws and impact are the things that I ve learned in the BTS, master presenter and Train The Trainer. My trainings have improved big time, reactions from teachers are great.Right now I’m planning my own event in April 2017, who would have thought that, hmm? It ’s also a book presentation, hey.. How to write your book!

    The most impact that you and Vered had was via your book Elements of Success and me joining the Leadership Team of Open Circles. In the leadershipteam training I learned so much about myself, my possibilities, my lesser points and my great points! I grew so tremendously as a person that thank you doesn’t start to cover it, I’m so grateful for the change given and taken!
    And your book, the SPICE method, I specificly used your book to first clean out my kitchen concerning relationships. You know the result 🙂 for those who don’t; I’ve met the love of my life and we are sooo on are way to a happy, contributing and fulfilling our potential life. The journey is the fun, I can assure you!

    You and Vered have had such an positive impact on my life, I feel as an concious millionaire already. This year will prove the first step in growing the numbers, super excited.
    The E-team is such an unique concept, which such as you beautifully put it; real life heroes. I miss it tremendously, but I have gained a lot of true friends for the rest of my journey.
    I’m not good at saying goodbye in some cases, and this is one of them. Inez and I will fly, and we will surely meet you and Vered again.

    “Till we meet again!

    Dear Nisandeh and Vered,

    I can’t tell you how grateful I am that I was able to follow your trainings. Of course, I told both of you every training that I followed, but nothing in this world can describe my thankfulness.

    I’d like to share my story with you, so that you hopefully can get an idea of how much you impacted my life.

    I’m Hanke, 16 years old and still in school. I first heard about you when my mom came back from the business bootcamp, about a year ago. We sat at the table, and she told us that “some things were going to change in our lives”… I was genuinely afraid that she had joined a cult. She was way too enthusiastic, she said that we would get wealthier, and all of that was thanks to this one wonderful man named Nisandeh Neta. Maybe you can imagine how I felt when she said that. She had decided that she wanted to do the whole program with you, and she convinced my dad to go with her.

    Now, my dad is one of the most rational persons I know, so I thought: “he’ll join her in the training, confirm that it’s all bullshit and than we can go back to normal.” When they came home, my dad was lyrical about you. So he signed up for the program as well.

    After every training, they discussed what they had learned with me, and I got curious. After a while, I decided that I was just curious enough to follow the business bootcamp. But, I was (and am) still in school, so I said to myself: I’ll do it when I’ve finished my school. But it didn’t took that long (fortunately), because six months ago, I found a note with “last business bootcamp ever” on it. I kinda stressed out, and after that told my parents that I still wanted to go there.

    So, somewhere in July, I went to the last business bootcamp ever, on my own. In the first session, I was still kinda sceptical, but during that weekend, you convinced me. You convinced me that I had something to offer this world. And above all, you convinced me that I REALLY REALLY REALLY should beg my parents (through the phone) to buy me the package with the ME, the FF and the BTS. I didn’t have business at that time, I was still in school, and I never had time for anything because of my hobbies.

    You can imagine that they didn’t want to buy me the package at first. I spend a full lunch break + coffee break on convincing them through the phone that this is the biggest gift they could ever give me (and other manipulating “everything for your kids, right” stuff), and at least, they agreed. But, I would have to pay everything back, and I would have to set up a business.

    At this moment, I followed all three of the trainings. And does my life look different. Because I’m only sixteen, all the things I’ve learned are extremely valuable FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. With still (relatively) so much time left, I can do absolutely ANYTHING I want. I didn’t build up that much non supportive beliefs, I haven’t got any huge debts (except for the one with my parents for the trainings, but that will be gone next year) and impossible has never been in my vocabulary.

    You thaught me how to manage my money, how to create a successful business, how to set goals, how to achieve ANYTHING I want…

    Thanks to you, Nisandeh and Vered, I realized that whatever they may tell me, there really isn’t anybody who can stop me. After the business bootcamp, I set myself the first goal, which was reaching the Dutch Championship in High Jumping (athletics). This afternoon, I got qualified. I will not EVER let anything stop me in reaching my other goals. Thanks to you.

    I know this isn’t a goodbye, but this is certainly a good moment to thank you for all the good things that already came into my life after I followed your trainings.

    Thank you, Nisandeh and Vered, for being the heroes of my life.

    I met Vered and Nisandeh for the first time in April 2009 during a free introduction session with some 20 attendees at the Novotel in Amsterdam. Vered did the talking, in an impressive way. Nisandeh sat in the back, silently, so I actually thought he was Vered’s tech guy. I was sold within an hour and on the spot I signed up for a package of courses, that turned out to be nothing less than amazing. Apart from the learning, development and fun that enriched my life so much I thank you both for being part of your incredible journey. From that small room at the Novotel to the Planetarium, to Nieuwegein, to Tenerife. Brian Tracy, Richard Brenson. All in just a few years. In the core of your success is the indestructible love of two soul mates. You always express it and it’s so beautiful to see
    Big hug and all the best in your new endeavors.

    It was quite a journey! From the trance dances in the Magic Weekends to the OneX and the BBC and FFI. It all had great effect: all trainings and journeys combined, improved my life, my friendships, my relationship with my husband and I dared to take the step to become an entrepeneur. Ofcourse still struggling here and there, but happier (and older 🙂 Thank you for coming in and out of my life, to both of you, Vered and Nisandeh.

    I’ve met you over 10 years ago during a 5-day intense training seminar by your friend Roy Martina, and I was so impressed by that 90-minute process you put me, and the 150 other participants – through, that my mom and I looked you up on the Internet.

    That single Sunday in Amsterdam in the hotel where you held your Leef Lekker day completely blew my mind away. So much even, that I immediately enrolled for your 3,5 day intense training.

    Back then, I was still struggling with the lack of eyesight that dramatically forced me to alter the course of my life. Ten per cent it was then, and I felt that I wasn’t able to do anything without my mom. She even drove me to and from those 3,5 day.

    The real change happened when I broke through the board, that you held in front of me. Looking me straight in the eye, and radiating such confidence in me. It was something I’ve never felt before.

    We’re now 10+ years further, and my eyesight hasn’t become any better. In fact, I’ve gone from ten per cent to a mere one per cent.

    But I’ve never felt such empowerment to awaken my own possibilities, as well as encouraging others professionally to never let them stop by anything physical, mental or emotional.

    Life has been, at least on a medical level, a continuous struggle: over 60 operations and treatments, kidney failure, dialysis, a double-organ transplant, coma even.

    But no matter the odds, I’ve kept always that that confidence that your eyes radiated from your heart into mine. And that encouraged me to push the boundaries for myself. Personally, and professionally.

    You were there the day after I returned from my 600 mile pilgrimage in 2009. You allowed me to share my story on stage for 2000 people when I wrote my first book, when I finished the New York Marathon – all of those you did yourself as well.

    You’ve been my mentor, my inspiration and my guidance. In dark times, and in the successful ones.

    There are no words than can truly describe how much of a role you played in my life, and there are no words strong enough that can underline how much I am grateful and thankful for what you’ve been willing to do to help me become the person I am today.

    Today I am not just a positive person with a positive attitude and outlook on life. I am the best version I could have been in any given moment. And I know, that this is just the beginning.

    Whether you were there as my mentor, an encouragement through your writings, or as a digital version on my laptop screen – you’ve been one of the most important people in my life over these last 10 year.

    “Where you go from here is up to you” Keanu Reeves once said in the movie the Matrix. And I believe that, like you said it once so truthfully, the sky is NOT the limit.

    I know that you will feel these words in your heart, when I say…

    Thank you
    I love you
    I believe in you

    I will keep following you, like the bright star in the sky that points out the direction I want to go to.

    Until we meet again.

    For over a decade I have attended many of your trainings which not only made me a better entrepreneur but, …….. much more important, a better human being. The law of attraction gave a boost to my business every time I had attended a training or business bootcamp. I will always remain grateful for the best quality time ever me and my daughter experienced while attending the Breaktrough to Success.

    Dear Nisandeh and Vered,

    The trainings of OCA helped to turn my hobby into a business. 5 years ago I wouldn’t, no couldn’t imagine that I would look into a 120.000 euro business. I started from scratch. Yes Nisandeh, it’s still the laughter business. I know it was not your favorite way and I struggled to find my target audience. But I finaliteit got it. In 2017 starts the first ever education in the Netherlands about laughter therapy and I will train therapists to bring back laughter on their clients faces as well as their own.

    You have my first book which I wrote thanks to the htwyb. The next one is recently published, the next two will be published in 2017.

    I learned to create video’s, blogs, give value and create a system. I’m now working on a passive income stream. Something I heard of for the first time at OCA.

    I am so happy with the powerful network and my even more powerful mastermind of all OCA trained people. We speak the same language, we are brutally honest and we grow like crazy.

    I learned a great deal about team work in the e-team and the team provides an even more powerful network.

    Thank you for making this possible. I know, my attendance (80% of success is showing up) and implementation makes my business grow, but it is thanks to your lessons that it grows in the right direction.

    Wish you all the best on your paradise island.

    Change the world. Smile 😉

    Thank you SO much, Vered & Nisandeh for all the love, dedication and extremely helpful lessons that have had a tremendous effect on both my life and business.

    I honestly would not be where I am today if it weren’t for Open Circles Academy. And even though I’m not even close to where I want to be with my business yet, I know for a fact that it’s just a matter of time and I’m enjoying the journey every step of the way.

    So thank you so much for that, and I’m anxiously awaiting to see, hear & experience what you have in store for us in 2017. Talk soon!

    Mijn leven is veranderd door de trainingen van Open Circles die ik heb mogen bijwonen in 2012 en 2013.

    Ik heb helder gekregen waar ik iedere dag mijn bed voor uitkom.
    Ik help heel graag financiële mensen in het onderwijs en de gezondheidszorg om hun financiën op orde te krijgen of hun organisatie te verbeteren.

    Zo ben ik in 2013 gestart bij stichting BOOR, een primair en voortgezet openbaar onderwijsstichting met 30.000 leerlingen.
    Stichting BOOR heeft zo een verlies van € 15 miljoen in 2011 en € 12,5 miljoen in 2012 met ingang van 2013 omgebogen naar een winst van € 6,5 miljoen in 2015 zonder gedwongen ontslagen!

    Het kan overal en altijd.
    Gezonde financiën en een duurzame organisatie is de basis van een bedrijfscultuur waarin iedereen zich veilig thuis voelt.

    Geluk en succes worden op deze manier een haalbare realiteit.
    Ik ben erg benieuwd naar het initiatief ZERO to Million dat je in januari 2017 gaat starten.

    Daar hoop ik veel van te gaan leren.
    Een goed uiteinde toegewenst.


    Hartelijke groet,

    Didier Dohmen

    Dear Nisandeh, many insights popped up in Nieuwegein. Mastering the art of taking one step at a time, is the one I currently focus on. Enjoy the many happy moments with Vered and living on Tenerife.
    Thank you for the inspiration in many ways and looking forward to the steps from a new perspective.

    Dear Nisandeh and Vered, you were the ones, who gave me hope and show me the light in my most difficult and darkest moments. You showed me how to discover my own power and how to become from inimini-me to maxi-me and to evolve from victim to victor.

    I am still on my way, it will take a lot of courage, confidence and power to get where I want to be and to become who I really am, but I enjoy my path. I’am learning and growing every day. Grateful for all the lessons I’ve learned. Thank you so much, dear family, for being in my (and my children’s) life. See you later…..

    Dear Vered and Nisandeh,

    Thank you so much for your commitment to help so many people. You have also touched my life. I was woken up and shaken up by the BBC en the following trainings have shapen me up to take up a huge challenge for me: growing my business. Well it is growing, in 2017 I am going digital launching my first online products. And…. in 2017 I am publishing my first book! This would never have happened without you. So here’s my deep gratitude to you for kicking my ass. It has truly changed my life.

    Thank you Vered and Nisandeh, for being part of my life in the last decade. Your lessons resonate in and around me in a way that makes me happy. I inhaled a lot of lessons and got addicted on information, meeting passionate people who are willing to make a change in the world. Finding my balance in life I belief the best moments in life are yet to come. Gratefull I make a bow for you two.

    Thank you so much for everything I learned from you. You have helped me change my life. It helped me to step up and have some amazing experiences and grow as a person and in business. Stepping out of my comfort zone was scary, but I noticed that scary can be a good thing too. I have hardly time for procrastination hahaha, and since I broke the wooden board with fear for succes, I am successful on the path I chose. Step by step I am manifesting my dream and dare to dream bigger as I go along. I’ll keep in touch thanks to your Linkedin messages and who knows what I’ll learn from you next.

    Just to let you know that I completed my first book: “leiderschap vanuit ’t hart”. Official launch 28 march, but available for friends already. In this way 180 books already have found eager readers.

    It was a journey of 2.5 years. But very rewarding.

    Thanks Nisandeh for planting this seed. The flower has be one prettier than expected. Like you say in your note: my kids, spouse, family and friends are proud.

    May Tenerife bring you what you wish for.

    Kind regards, George

    Bedankt, toda raba, gracias, Nisandeh en Vered,

    Het was zeker een keerpunt in mijn leven de BBC in april 2011. Het voelde ook gelijk vertrouwd omdat ik de Israëlische cultuur van geven en samen van dichtbij ken. Ik ben niet voor niets met een Israëlische vrouw getrouwd 😉

    Het was indrukwekkend om elke keer weer mee te maken hoe jullie zoveel mensen wisten te verbinden met elkaar en met hun doelen. “You need a system”, zal ik nooit meer vergeten.

    Heel veel ‘mazzel ve ahava’ voor jullie toekomst en ik blijf jullie graag volgen.

    I enjoyed all the courses I followed. From the first to the last one. Some exercises were not exactly my thing, but I still got a lot out of it. I always had a lot of insights, ideas and good energy.

    Only coming back in Spain, facing my daily challenges to maintain this place and get some income out of it, I felt alone and not knowing how to put these ideas in something working for me.

    I hope that, going week by week, I can get over this. And I really would have liked to be in the ‘serious’ group, but the days of going to Holland all the time, are over for me for the moment.

    Open Circles heeft me heel erg goed geholpen. Geld is een issue geworden, iets waarover je moet nadenken, dat was waarschijnlijk stap 1. Door de zaken die ik geïmplementeerd heb en nog aan het implementeren ben is mijn inkomen serieus omhoog gegaan. Dat was zeker nodig en het is heel fijn dat de tips en tricks die Open Circles heeft aangereikt te doen zijn en werken. Natuurlijk ga ik verder met het strategisch benaderen van mijn marketing!

    I can not express the enormous graditude I feel for my great journey with Open Circles Academy in words. They all seem to lack that twinkle I feel inside.

    It all started in March 2014 when I had my first BBC. In the break I went to Nisandeh in his office and told him I want to have the training Passive Business Income course. But Nisandeh told me firmly that I first have to have working income.

    I was a bit dissapointed but extra motivated to make it happen for me. So after the Master Entrepreneur I got the assignment to come up with a remarkable product. For weeks I was thinking of something, but I didn’t have any great ideas.

    Then suddenly in the middle of the night it came to me and I knew exactly what I had to do.

    And that was the beginning of the development of the amazing system Herbs by Heart.

    Because of this system and the great lessons and advise from Nisandeh I will be financial free in 2017.

    Nisandeh, Vered and everybody I met during this great Open Circles adventure, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Warm hugs,

    Open circles changes my (business) live. You gave me hope. Being autistic I knew working for a boss is not going to be succesfull. So I really needed to be succesfull in my own business.

    Last month Bonstaete (courses for real estate marketeers) existed 10 years. In this field most professionals know my company. The skills I teach my clients make their companies big(ger), so when they grow I see a lot of them sending their new employees to me again. A win-win-win situation.

    The skills I learned make me feel comfortable that I can make other kinds of companies also succesfull.

    Thanks for the friends I met here and thanks for the teaching!

    . ontmoedigd
    . gebroken
    . onzeker
    . zelfmedelijden

    Jezelf bij de kladden pakken en gaan voor het perspectief. Juist het perspectief dat jijzelf creeert.
    Vele tools, feedback, tips, truuks, skills, eyopeners zijn er met mij gedeeld.
    Echter onbedoeld was het mijn nieuwe trots en het herwinnen van zelfvertrouwen dat een extra duwtje kreeg met het uit mijn comfortzone dansen op een stoel!

    Dank hiervoor !
    Denk er aan terug op de moment dat het allemaal even wat minder gemakkelijk gaat.

    Oh and Nisandeh,

    I received a Dutch digital version of dr. Alberto Villoldo, “Healing volgens de sjamanen”. I haven’t finished it yet, however it might be interesting for you, since he claims several times that you can influence the length of your life buy healing the patterns in your energyfield. This small 223 paged book is not for sale anymore in Holland, but still so wanted that the second handed version must be 4 or 5 times over the original price. Maybe this says something about the quality of the book.
    If you’re interested just tell me where to mail it to and I give it to you.

      Hoi Shirley Jane,
      Ik lees je verhaal en gezien de 75 eerdere reacties ben ik niet enige. Ik bemerk dat energieën/energiebanen/energievelden een grote invloed op ons en dus ook op mijn functioneren hebben en zou mij daarom graag nader in het onderwerp verdiepen. Het boek dat je in digitale versie ter beschikking wilt stellen lijkt daartoe een goede mogelijkheid te bieden en ik wil er danook dankbaar gebruik van maken.
      Dank je wel en hartelijke groet,

    I have been on a roller coaster for the last 12 months.
    Last year I had my turning point. In January I had a real goal for the first time in my life. Taking everything IN what’s positive and stimulating and throwing OUT just about everything that was not. Then I went to the Bootcamp… I couldn’t find a better place to learn, to develop and to be supported in this new goal!! So, I followed your courses, your great business boost and blogs. And I grew stronger and stronger. I am gratefull that I allowed myselve to get you and Vered on board of my ship, called ‘Connection.’

    I see now the great (and terrible) impact my attitude about money had on my husband and kids for the past 15 years. I cannot ask them to change it, but I can SHOW it. They’re saving now for a holiday beyond imagination, I myselve was able to follow courses with prices beyond my imagination. And STILL I was able to buy the best computer and mobile Phone for X-mas. Anythng is possible!

    Next year I will implement all kinds of stuff from Open Circles and I see it has my job to proof that the courses really do what you promised: get mote income, more freedom, more fulfilment. Then I’ll get back for more!!

    Best wishes for you and Vered, you’re really one of a kind!

    Hello, marketing was voor mij abracadabra … en was helemaal niets voor mij. Dankzij Open Circles en het hele team en de hele inzet van iedereen en uiteraard dankzij de bereidwilligheid van Nisandeh om dit alles op een heel bevattelijke manier te delen, kan ik de wetmatigheden zien en bovenal ook de simpele tools hebben om deze te gebruiken.
    Van harte DANK U.

    Dear Nesandeh, I’ve only started my company as off March 2016 and was in June in the first Bus Bootcamp.
    I confirm that it has changed my life in every way, professional & private.
    I’ve changed my business plan and I will hire next year 2 employees, start building on my passive income, double my income and keep similar high profit & margins.
    Yes, even now in the winter holidays standing on my skies, I’m much more confident than the 10 years before. If I can go through the wooden plate, I can overcome any obstacle.
    I will follow you on LinkedIn very closely, because they ain’t seen nothing yet from me.
    I now know and believe that I can do it. I will change the world (or let’s say Belgium) by empowering & engaging people to make them equal motivated as their employer.

    Dear Nisandeh, thank you for putting me on the path of awareness, change and personal growth. The first time I met you was in 2015 during a Business Bootcamp, it was new, inspiring, exciting and truly life-changing. But what I remember most of all is your speech on the day of the attack in Paris, I was in the audience and felt the true passion and everything you believe in behind every word you spoke. I will never forget that message for the rest of my life. I wish you and Vered all the best for your next journey. You guys truly make a difference.

    Dear Nisandeh, Vered and everyone at the Open Circles Team for the last 20 years;THANK YOU – THANK YOU – THANK YOU
    You did an Amazing job!
    There are those who lead and those who follow. Even in businesses among each other. When you took the lead here in The Netherlands, others where just in awe and watched how you just impacted the entire landscape with your trainings on business, finance and personale development. There was simple no answer to the way you guys sky rocketed.
    Even now, after so many years, you are still taking steps that are totally different than mainstream.
    And I do believe that THAT is the biggest lesson of all for each and everyone of us.
    * Follow your heart
    * Lead others to lead themselve
    * Create with strategy
    * Implementation is Key

    I will never forget how I earned a € 3.000,- training back x 2 in one action that same morning and x 100 if I look back at it now calculating it over the last 3-4 years. And it was not even something you where teaching! It was simply applying one of your strategies that YOU used on the stage in my own business.
    Implementation is Key.

    Great to read all the plans for 2017 and beyond.
    Great to open your house for those interested. It was a true inspiration to see how you live on that beautiful mountain above the clouds in Tenerife. Thank you so much for your hospitality. The Latin Dance Business bootcamp was born in 2016 thanks to your advise.
    Thank you so much for everything you did until now and I am looking forward for even better and greater 😉

    Wat een mazzel dat ik bij mijn start als ZZP’er attent gemaakt werd op de bijeenkomsten van Open Circles. Uitdagingen werden geformuleerd, ‘nooit gedacht’ stappen genomen. Van ZZP naar B.V.

    Gestart met een exclusief uitzend en bemiddelingsbureau voor jeugdhulpspecialisten. In 4 maanden van 1 uitzendkracht naar 9. Met de inzet van LinkedIn als basis met gemiddeld 2000 lezers van mijn berichten of oproepen tot werk.
    Voor 2017 nog 2 te ontwikkelen stippen op de horizon die verder uitgewerkt worden in de jaren erna. Heeeeerlijk ik geniet. Dit had ik zonder de inspiratie vanuit de bijeenkomsten bij Open Circles niet gedaan. Ik wil graag blijven volgen hoe Nisande zijn volgende uitdaging oppakt. Ik zal hier zeker parallel aan mijn bedrijf van kunnen groeien.

    It was in 2010 that I first followed the Business Bootcamp. A year after I moved to Holland after having lived on the Caribbean island Curaçao for 20 years. I started my own company right after I came to Holland, but did nog realize that I had no network left in my home country and had totally lost a true connection to this place. I was a stranger in my birth place.

    It is through Open Circles that I slowly build a new network of friends and like-minded entrepreneurs. I have been a mental sponge since then absorbing all the information you provided. I’ve been through the second first steps of all 3 pillars (financial, business and personal) and also my husband, daughter and boyfriend and one of my sons have participated in some of the courses.

    Thank you so much Nisandeh, Vered and all the people of Open Circles for contributing to my life and to the world! We love you and hopefully we will meet again.

    Both of you, the team(s) and we alltogether impacted me deeply.
    My personal and spiritual growth was seperated from my professional life in 2012. I was new as an entrepreneur….sooooo new, I did not even know I was so blue and naive 🙂 And now I am so greatful for everything you gave, that I received, implemented and stil are busy implementing.

    My company is blooming!

    So many parents allready benefitted from a way of mediation that is based on personal developtment.
    Respectful divorce, where children have full attention.
    As I say in Dutch: Zie scheiden als een fase en niet als falen.

    In March my book about: “How do we tell the children” wil come out…on my birthday…o help I said it!!! in front of so many people.

    Vered, Nisandeh and team(s) I LOVE YOU for who you are and what you did and do! Thank you.

    Open Circles was for sure Life Changing in all aspects. Since the Business Bootcamp and the Master Entrepreneur a month later, I realized I had a hobby. Since then everything changed big time. I now consider myself an entrepreneur. I now work together with Merijn Kegel, Marielle van der Vlies and Kamiel van Ingen, all great people all from the Open Circles Community.

    From mini-Me I grew to a lot bigger person. I’m not there yet, but I see a glimpses of Maxi-me, quite regularly. I can really say that I live my life on purpose

    The last four years I assisted in the e-team. It was great to be a part in all those life-changing events. I met so much incredible persons and some if the I consider friends for lift.
    After ca. 100 events as participant or e-team member, and consider myself a conscious millionaire. For sure in mind and my bank account will follow for sure!!

    Last but not least, thanks to Open Circles I met the love of my life Anja. Together we planned to spend the rest of our lives.
    Vered and Nisandeh, thanks for everything you did for me, Anja and the thousands of others.

    Ik sta met mijn bedrijf JXR SEM komende maand op een beurs. Ondanks dat ik hem daarvoor nog steeds knijp, sta ik daar nu heel positief in.
    – Mijn propositie is veel scherper neergezet (dankzij Master Entrepreneur),
    – Ik bied daar een cursus Social media aan, die ik nu bijna af heb (dankzij Financial Freedom,
    – Ik ben er van overtuigd dat het een succes wordt (dankzij breakthrough)

    Dit jaar heb ik mijn omzet al zien verveelvoudigen (dankzij mijzelf
    ; >) ), maar de volgende verveelvoudiging komt mede door de cursussen.

    To say that I am good although this is not Dutch! I have obtained more selfconfidence. It helps me to be strong.

    Thank you for all the insights i got this year.
    Not yet everything is implemented, çause things take time to understand what the results are. And sometimes start all over again, walk a differnt path to reach the goals.
    I walked this year! It got me more motivated than ever. Thank you!

    Pfffff…… I have no idea where to start.

    The first time I saw stuff about the Business Bootcamp I thougth it was a scam. But I was also very very curious…

    2010 it all started with my first Business Bootcamp and the journey still has not ended.

    Nisandeh and Vered, you changed my life tremedously. No words to describe it.

    Since my book was published in 2014 everything started to shift around. Not untill this last few months I found my path.

    Could I have found it sooner? Maybe…
    Could I have found it without you? Maybe…
    Could I have found it on my own? Not a change.

    Starting with the Business Bootcamp I met a lot of great people. Some became friends, some I work with, some came and went.
    But what a thrill, what a ride, what an experience.

    It was MY journey.
    It was MY path to walk.
    Because without it, it wouldn’t have brought me here, in December 2016, on the brink of the biggest leap I am going to take in my life.

    Thanks to you and everyone I met during the Open Circles Years for the first time it is going to be a leap of complete faith…

    Thank you!

    Dear Nisandeh,
    You have made a big change in my life althoughi still have a long way to go.
    2017 will be my best year ever by participating in a project that will change the lifes of a lot of young people to enable them to develop their creative potential by using professional building equipment, 100% save for children.
    You have learned me (so far):
    1. Keep focus,
    2. Believe in myself and be confident
    3. Giving first is so important,also for my mind
    4. Work to become a consious millionair.
    5. Create PASSIVE INCOME. For now i don’t do project anymore if the gain is not based on passive income, which will last as long as the project is active.

    Thanks a lot and waiting for 2017.
    You with a million $ business and me to start a project to enable one million children to develop their creative potentials.
    (In Europe , USA and finally China)

    Nisandeh, most important thing learned; get in line and stay in line. No matter what that line looks like; straight, curved or as a stair.

    Dear Nisandeh and Vered,

    Your trainings gave me the right tools & insights to change my life.
    Master Presenter was the best for me, because in many ways it changed the way I looked at my business. I became more self confident and more focussed.
    Thank you for being you! And I am curious what march/april will bring us…
    All the best, see you soon!

    Absolutely did you and Vered change my life. The trainings AND the community made me more secure, self-confidend, focussed, happier. And above all, It made me conscious of having a purpose in life. The last is the biggest insight I have. Before I followed a path, with the same direction but I was not aware of what that was leading to, so I was wandering easily some ‘side paths’ ;-).

    So life changing!! And I am very thankful to you Nisandeh, Vered, the team, all the people I met in those more then 20 training events and four years.
    Big, Big hug!!

    Looking forward to the next phase and the 0-milion program.

    Love to you all, Leni

    Absolutely, the trainings and presentations of Nisandeh have changed a lot. 1) I got rid of fears and got much more confident. 2) I set goals that are better and feel better. 3) Ideas and plans which seemed not achievable look achievable now. 4) I pay much more attention to money and have fun with it. It has reduced my loans and debts. Thank you Nisandeh.

    It was the steady stream of Facebook ads that convinced me to go to the BB. And that decision changed my life.
    More courses followed and I have learned so much.
    I learned setting goals and hoe to ‘get in line and stay in line’
    In a couple of months my turnover grew with 40%.
    I lost 14 kg and training for my first marathon.
    I have dealt with some old childhood pains through some really powerfull healing processes.
    I sleep better, have more energy and more focus and most important, less fear.
    It is safe to say that you, Nisandeh and Vered, have transformed my life.
    Thank you for that! <3

    oww yeah, my life changed, my perspective, myvocabulary, my senses sharpened and my eyes are set on the horizon !
    i regained my confindence, my self awareness. I gained the tools, techniques, prcoedures and all those ways to organize and simplify my life.

    Tools to work with, to stop procastinate, to take MY life in MY hands and (trans)form it. It’s up to me, more than before, much more then 1,5 years ago, when i thought that succes is what happens to me when i work hard-if i’m lucky. Now, i know that success WILL be for me if i do the right things in the right way ! And that takes me out of my victim-role. That brings me in front of my path. For that , and a lot more insights and internal processes whithin myself, i thank All the members of OCA. Not just you, but especially Vered.

    You , Nisandeh made it possible, but Vered really shook my world, my life, my consciousness ! She made all your “technical stuff” stick ! You are truely a team ! I give you my gratitude, And ‘you’ means the whole OCA-team ! And of course a warm hug to everyone of you !

    Thanks for all the wonderful trainings in Nieuwegein and Amsterdam. I’m still implementing, but more important I’m still holding on to a few key lessons from the very beginning (business bootcamp) that are making sure my business keeps on growing. Also for me… the best is yet to come. See you in Tenerife 🙂

    Dear Nisandeh and Vered,

    Yes, you both have really impacted my life. A friend of mine invited me to come to the Bootcamp. And I made the commitment to do things differently. No more waiting but acting. And be creative. And listen to my target audience. Or first choose a Target Audience.

    That created different results for me. I’m a different person now. I hunt more, take more action, take more risks, celebrate. I’m a better friend for my friends. I know better what I want and act to accomplish that.
    And so much more.

    I got some very good friends, created new markets and businesses, and I am seen as an expert in my business. My competitors (which are still much bigger) would like to buy my company :-). But I will wait a little longer to expand my business to an international success.

    Learning from others, e.g. from you, is the best thing I ever did. And I keep learning. And also I am teaching to help others.

    Hi Nisandeh, as a trainer helping professionals to move from insecurity to confidence and from stress to inner peace, and so reach their goals with much more ease and fun, have a better life with confidence, I like to send you a big thank you, too!
    Thanks to your trainings (master entrepreneur, financial freedom, breaktrough, master speaker,…) I doubled my income and my trainings became much more fun! I started making products, like cd’s and I dared to start again with an open offer of trainings. Wauw!

    Wish you good luck and fun with your next steps.
