I believe the message of being a Joyful Entrepreneur should be spread worldwide. With the translation of this book to English it's my mission to inspire and provide tools to the next generation of entrepreneurs in English speaking countries such as the US, the UK and many African and Caribbean countries.

Many young people dream about entrepreneurship. My entrepreneurial journey started when I was only 19 years old. I started out with my own dance studio, which I ran next to my medical biology study at the university. After my dance studio I started many endeavours and I noticed that a lot of young people don't know how to get started. And that it is possible for anyone no matter your background or age to start a business.

That's why I wrote my first book about entrepreneurship in the Dutch language. I was born and raised in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and my parents are from Surinam, South America. So it was only logical to publish my first book in The Netherlands in Dutch. So it's available in all bookstores there.

The Joyful Entrepreneur is about finding fulfillment through the ups- and downs of entrepreneurship, because it is a rollercoaster. Entrepreneurship is not easy, but it can be simple if you know the steps to make it a joyful journey.

So make this happen for all my next generation entrepreneurs. Your sons, your daughters, your grandchildren, your nieces, nephews, your interns and your students. Feel free to share this Go Fund Me campaign and let's all be Joyful Entrepreneurs.

The funds of this campaign will be used for the professional translation of the 130 page book from Dutch to English. In addition, I will make the text more applicable for the US market, so I will add new chapters as well. We want to have a first translated manuscript ready by the first quarter of 2018.

One of the chapters is already professionally translated for promotional purposes. If you have donated an amount you can receive this chapter of the book right away to already have a sneak preview.
Please leave your e-mail in the comment section or leave your social media profile so I can send the first chapter in pdf through e-mail, facebook messenger or another media of your liking.

I will be very grateful to receive the funds, as millions of young people don't know how to shape their future. I believe that The Joyful Entrepreneur can be a start to spark an entrepreneurial mindset for our next generation!
