Heya!

It’s almost 2016 and I’m ready for lift-off! 2015 was a great year for me: I launched Startup Stash, got picked up by Business Insider (and more), told the internet how I did it (10k reads), travelled to San Francisco, NYC, Mallorca, Bucharest, Antwerp and London, joined the Product Hunt team and represented them in Europe, did some keynote talks, appeared on live Dutch TV, met awesome people from all around the world, started my own business and this newsletter :)
I’ve written down my six business goals for 2016, let me know what your’s are!

  • Building my network and personal brand (this includes writing a monthly Medium post)
  • Work with awesome people and build my freelance business
  • Creating an online course for (aspiring) young entrepreneurs
  • Improving my public speaking skills (do at least 6 keynote speaking events)
  • Making a documentary film about the culture of Silicon Valley
  • Writing a book about the startup world (Dutch)
What are your goals for 2016? Let me know on Twitter via @bramk! Want to connect with me to see if we can work together next year? Add me on Linkedin!
Best from Amsterdam and have fun tomorrow night :)
