What you'll do

Learn how to play harder, breathe easier, and live better without losing any of the results you've worked so hard to achieve.

Success as an entrepreneur carries with it the hidden risk of serious pain and suffering resulting from poor health, overwork, and stress.

I am the perfect example. As one of the Netherlands' best known and most successful entrepreneurs, I nearly lost it all to a complete physical, mental, and emotional breakdown. After nine months of painful recovery, I survived and made it my mission to help fellow entrepreneurs avoid the same fate. My goal is to prove that entrepreneurs can have it all while living a fulfilling, healthy, and balanced personal life.

Let’s take a walk in the Vondelpark in Amsterdam. I’ll answer your questions and guide you through the Five Facets of Sustainable Entrepreneurship as described in my book Redesign and how to use them to either reinvigorate your career or cure the illness of burnout.

Some of the greatest visionaries of our time - Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, and even Barack Obama - were fans of walking meetings, and it looks like they were onto something. According to a Stanford University study, a person's creative output increased by 60% when they were walking. If that's not motivation to get up off your chair and take a walk in the Vondelpark with me, I don't know what is. Book this experience today!

I don’t like writing bad reviews and especially not this one. I’ve met Sebastiaan before a couple of times for dinners/walks experiences and left great reviews. I was in Amsterdam for a few days a week ago and was really looking forward meeting for a walk again. Unfortunately, it was a complete disappointment. I felt the disconnect pretty early on. At some point he told me he completed a coach program where he learned to “listen and not to give advice.” Listening is a great skill, but if that’s all I needed, I would have hired a psychologist. I am in a difficult spot in life now and I really needed some ideas, guidance, direction and yes, inspiration. I felt I got neither of these things. I left the park even more disheartened then I came.

Appreciative for the time I got to spend with Sebastian in Vondelpark. Not only did I receive his new book for entrepreneurs, he also gave his undivided attention and even bought me a chai at a nearby cafe. He gave plenty of advice on balancing entreprenurship and personal life, which I'm truly grateful for. You can definitely consider me a friend, Sebastian, and to everyone considering this walk. Go for it - your inspiration will overflow!

Sebastiaan is as his story tells. Through his personal stories you learn his pursuit for a balanced life and helps you question your own by getting to know you both personally and professionally. We enjoyed our conversation while walking through the historic park and the surprise at the end ☕. We definitely would recommend the experience

I almost hesitate to write this review because I want this particular Airbnb experience to be my treasured secret. Sebastiaan is knowledgeable, easy-going, funny but also practical and direct - style that I really appreciate. He told me things I didn’t necessarily “want” to hear, but really needed to - and managed to deliver it in a form that made me open to his feedback. He is also very generous with his time and knowledge. No way you’d be disappointed.

One of the best experiences in Airbnb. Sebastiaaan has a rare combination of intelligence, intuition and the ability to listen (really listen!) so the feedback you get is invaluable. We all sometimes find ourselves in the place where a different perspective can make all the difference in the world. Take the walk. You won’t be sorry.

Walk with Sebastiaan is a dynamic exercise for redirecting an entrepreneur's attention to priorities and possibilities. In the time we spent Sebastiaan covered plenty of essential ground once I stopped talking. Somewhat of a modern remake of the Jimmy Stewart classic, a wonderful life, thus highly recommended!
