Thursday 12th of October’23. Unstoppable: The Sequel.
Get ready for harder, better, faster, stronger. As Daft Punk sings.
What happened to Vanessa after the event?
I seem to have blacked out for a week now. Flatline in my head for a while. Or no, just barely. For a moment space in my head. Something has disappeared. Namely, the anxiety I sometimes feel about entrepreneurship.
The fear that keeps me from moving forward, it’s gone (well, sometimes it comes peeking from behind the corner, but I can give it a quicker shot under the ass so it disappears again).
I never thought that this would be the result of one afternoon listening to stories of people who, just like me, with the shivers in their legs, started out in business. Entrepreneurs with a dream, and a drive to achieve it. And all of them with a fear that they let go of and were therefore able to achieve breakthroughs in a short period of time. And as a result, are where they are today.
I was impressed!
That event was Andy’s “Big Reveal. An event where he told his personal story. Yes, yes, a story about his fear. And then when you see where he comes from and now, so soon after he himself put on his entrepreneurial shoes, gets the auditorium of the Phillipssite full and took the stage there himself, you realize that you better turn your back on your fear. During the event, we also got to enjoy his hero movie. A film that left quite an impression, for the same reason mentioned earlier. Wow! He does it just like that!
The quote I take away from that event is: “𝐅𝐞𝐚𝐫, 𝐚𝐧 𝐞𝐦𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐤𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐬 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦𝐬 𝐢𝐧 2 𝐬𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐝𝐬.”
At the same event, he also gave the stage to his coachees. The league of unstoppables, he calls them. And, thanks to him, they are also unstoppable.
Well, we were also in an unstoppable mood when we started networking. We had just jumped along to the unstoppable song he released. So I can put it on when I feel the energy dip.
So, what I take away, and what I already feel throughout my body: which is that I should not have fear, but confidence. Trust in me. Confidence that my path is the right one. And that fear is not mine.
Thank you Andy for this invitation.
Friday the 13th, the day you made us 𝒖𝒏𝒔𝒕𝒐𝒑𝒑𝒂𝒃𝒍𝒆, the day we turned our backs on our fear.

Do you know the lyrics of my Unstoppable song?
“I’m making plans, from stop to Unstoppable,
this time, it’s my time,
to break the code I’m undroppable,
I’m one with the universe, with myself and I’m bold
No more playing small I’m big time unstoppable
I’m in this league to make it This is my time,
I take it I am unshakable Yes, I am unbreakable”
Absolute premier in the Belgian Coaching Industry. This is my song in cooperation with singer/songwriter Unstoppable Erin Huysmans.
