The business world is a stormy sea, full of unpredictable currents, shoals and whirlpools. Every big deal begins with someone else telling you, “It will never work.”

Creating the world around us takes a conscious choice; it brings not only success in business, but also allows us to hold our heads high, manage our own lives and avoid losing ourselves.

People who take full responsibility for their decisions and actions acquire true freedom. That is why we’ve chosen to call the newest section of Schildershoven Blog “In free flight.” Where self-made men and women are able to talk about how they got to the top and the rules of life that helped them get there.
Like the seagull on the Schildershoven logo, such people are able to catch updrafts and are not afraid of descending, and understand cyclical changes. Their example inspires others to take the first step, and serves as a guide to those who are not afraid to go out alone in the storm and stay the course. Come fly with us!
