What 500+ CEOs Taught Me Before The Age Of 25
Sharing knowledge so founders like you can make better decisions.
👋 Hi, I’m Robin. From the age of 20 to 25, I was lucky enough to meet hundreds of founders, CEOs and investors from all over Europe.
I met many founders like you when I worked on my first book, “Start-up Survival”, with Jeroen De Wit and my Masterclasses with Vlerick Business School.
I spent about two years on the road interviewing 50 top founders for our book, so founders like you could make better decisions.
At the time I didn’t own a car, so you can imagine how many trains and busses I took to interview these people…
Once the book was published, I went back on the road to convince the world’s best experts to teach in our Masterclasses. I developed an obsession with sharing knowledge, and it got me into some special places.
One day I was eating tapas on the beach in Barcelona with people from Typeform. The next day I was drinking coffee at a Starbucks with Hotjar’s gang.
People always asked me: “How did you, a 20-year old, convince those people?”
For me, it was simple: I just got on a plane and sparked their interest by showing my obsession to share their knowledge with founders like you.
And suddenly, after a few weeks on the road, it hit me. Every single founder is struggling with the same thing: time. If there’s one thing that you don’t have enough of, it’s time.
Founders like you have to balance so many things, and you only have 24 hours in a day for:
managing your cash flow,
being a great parent,
and many more.
Next to that, you need to be in this constant “learning mode” and absorb knowledge from reading books, following courses, listening to podcasts,... So you can figure out what the best decisions are to grow your startup.
To do so, you need to learn as much as possible in as little time as possible. You can’t afford to spend hours of your valuable time reading a pile of theoretical books or spending months following an MBA program.
Lacking time to learn often results in making the same mistakes other founders already made before you.
So then I wondered: “Is there a way that I can help you to make better decisions in less time than reading a book or following a course?”
And, I found a way.
Even better, the way I will help you matches my life purpose. I will help you make better decisions by sharing knowledge.
Instead of spending countless hours searching for answers in books and courses, you will get practical content in only a few minutes.
