Exemplified: 30 stories about what life can offer you

Are you someone who …

  • loves to discover inspiring experts and entrepreneurs?
  • learns from role models and mentors?
  • looks for the common theme in success stories?
  • appreciates in-depth conversations as seen through the eyes of a 25-year-old?

In that case, Exemplified*, is a book for you! Armed with a microphone and a healthy dose of interest, I spent many hours on the talking to entrepreneurs, opinion leaders and creative thinkers. This book summarizes 30 stories. Stories about people like you and me, who don’t wait for permission.
