About me

I have over 25 years of working experience in various branches in my back pack. Started out in advertising. Worked as a 'workflow consultant' for some years. Owned and ran an SME in turnkey company relocation. Had a great time, earned good money, but worked myself half to death.

Ireland

Moved to Ireland with (hence) a hefty burnout at the end of the nineties, to enjoy a 10 year semi-sabbatical. Hardly earned any money but had a fantastic time. Learned about different values of existence and the green side of life.

Strength

Returned to the Netherlands in 2009 and to my strengths and talents: writing/language and entrepreneurship. Having always been fascinated by the marketing opportunities of the internet, I decided in 2013 to start focussing on this discipline.
Complemented my theoretical knowledge with a targeted training SEO copywriting and with Google's Digital Workplace. WordPress as a CMS holds almost no secrets for me anymore - as you can see from this (self made, of course) website.

A lot to offer

Because of my extensive experience working with and for SME's, I have a lot to offer my clients. I can stand in the shoes of most entrepreneurs, think along with them and (with a fresh pair of eyes) offer advice that goes just a step further than merely providing a website, text or translation.

In short

I love what I'm doing and I enjoy helping (startup) entrepreneurs. I am also very much involved in animal welfare. From these points of view I can and want to work for SME's, startups and animal charities with profound commitment and at a friendly rate. Because earning money is nice, but getting satisfaction from my work is even nicer.

Shall we talk?

Sindy Cremer, vertaler

Ik wou echt een heel simpele website. Maar wel professioneel. En zusje of niet: ik ben een perfectionist, dus ze kon zich er niet met een jantje-van-leiden van afmaken. En dat heeft ze ook niet gedaan. Het was precies wat ik zocht. Ook de teksten die ze voor me schreef vond ik erg leuk en passend.

Schrijven over botox en fillers vraagt een grondige verdieping in veel aspecten en enige voorzichtigheid bij wat je precies communiceert. Wat me het meest verraste, was de snelheid waarmee Monique zich de materie eigen maakte.

Monique is de personificatie van het begrip klantvriendelijkheid. Voeg daarbij haar feilloze taalgevoel, haar ruime marketingervaring en haar goudeerlijke karakter en je hebt de perfecte sparring partner!
