The name of the hardcover called, Expeditie Edith. Find out more about the insight via our brief interview.
What is the book about?
My book is a biography which is about my life. My youth, my judo career. I am writing about the athlete and about the human side. What people always see is an athlete winning an Olympic medal and smiling on a podium. But to win a medal on that level their is a lot to overcome.
Why did you write this book?
I wrote this book to inspire people that it doesn’t matter who you are (athlete, CEO or manager) everybody has his challenges. If you truly dare to look in a mirror and self reflect you can overcome almost anything and grow fast and to a high level.
What is your job at the moment?
At the moment I am a performance coach (in business) my specialty is energy management. I create more awareness about finding a balance in work-privet life, looking at 4 pillars physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. I coach individuals and teams in business to higher performance. I do this with my colleagues and friends in our company (www.peak4.nl).
What is coming next – any plans?
What is up next. I don’t know for sure. The only thing I am doing is living my passion and that is to work with people, behavior and what lies beneath. I am going to Rio de Janeiro to enjoy and experience the Olympic games. That, I am looking forward to.
