Because I also follow my passion and want to inspire you to follow your passion as well.
Erwin Wils MSC
As some of you might know, I have a background in tech. In 1996 I graduated university (TU Delft) as a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering, with a focus on control engineering. I’m what they called a left-brainer. I started my career in the corporate world as a helpdesk emplyee and changed roles and companies a lot in the following 21 years. Each time I changed role, I did it to grow and develop myself and find ways to deliver my added value. I found the biggest joy in optimizing processes and each step I took, brought me closer to doing that full-time. I never intended to become an entrepreneur, I followed the traditional path: do your best at school, get a degree and get a job.
Entrepreneur Erwin Wils
In 2015, my entrepreneurial journey started. After the first weekend of my first hypnotherapy training (March 2015), I knew I wanted to do this for a living someday. What I thought to be somewhere between 5 to 10 years, became 2 years. In February 2017 I was fully self-employed. That vary same year I changed my focus from hypnotherapy to coaching, from national to international and I invested in my first business coach. My whole entrepreneurial journey has definitely transformed me as a person. In a positive sense.
My future self
If you ask me where I see myself in about 5 years time, my answer would be:
- Having an international coaching company
- At least 5 coaches working for me
- A full equipped back office taking care of all the administration, social media, etcetera
- Myself on international stages, sharing my story, inspiring the audience and making them take action to follow their passion.
Will this happen? Definitely! It’s not a matter of “if”, it’s a matter of “when”. I know what I’m capable of, and I know I’m even much more capable than I currently think. I don’t think I can do it, in my mind I’m already there. That makes a huge difference.
I had all kinds of limiting beliefs. By working on my own mindset, I have overcome all those limitations and I am still learning and growing. I’m truly enjoying the journey of self-discovery. Investing in a coach was my best decision ever. I hope my story inspires you to follow your passion as well.
