To maximize your benefit, we ask you to do a number of preparatory assignments:
Important! These assignments require some research time, so please don’t wait until the very last moment to do them.
- Estimate your yearly budget, in other words, create an overview of your yearly income versus your yearly expenses.
You can use our Yearly Budget calculation sheet
Don’t get stuck on the details. Make your estimates as accurate as possible.
Print your completed Yearly Budget Sheet and bring it THE FIRST DAY of the training, you will need it then.
- Calculate your Equity / Net Worth (Eigen Vermogen)
You can use the Net Worth Calculation Sheet
Your Equity or Net Worth is the capital (value) that remains after subtracting your debts from your possessions.
In the calculation sheet, you need to make a list of the things you own versus what you owe , so that you can calculate the resulting number. Please don’t get stuck in the details, but make your estimates as accurate as possible.
Print your completed Net Worth Calculation Sheet and bring it to THE FIRST DAY OF THE TRAINING.
- Cut 10-20 images from magazines: images that portray financial success in your eyes.
Make sure that the images are as specific as possible as to what financial success means TO YOU. E.g. the house of your dreams, holiday destinations, hobbies, your car, etc.
Bring these images with you to the training. Also – very importantl – bring photo’s of yourself.
Start doing the assignments asap, don’t wait until the last moment!
The Money Game
During the training we will play a very powerful game: the Money Game.
In order to participate, you will need to bring some cash.
You can bring any amount between 20 and 200 euro, in in 5 euro bills or 1 and 2 euro coins.
When you consider the amount you want to play – remember the golden rule – the more you put in, the more you get out (not necessarily in cash…)
- In addition to the money for the money game, you need to bring 2 x 10 euro bills for 2 other processes. You can’t participate in these processes without these cash bills. So please don’t forget!
- A sealable water bottle. The NBC does not allow you to bring any cups in the room.
- Dress code is business casual. Be aware of the fact that airconditioning can make it chilly in (parts of) the room.
- Your business cards.
You are not allowed to make video- and/or audio-recordings during our programs.
