In 2007 Bastiaan sold his internet company. From then he dedicated his life to research of life fulfillment and happiness and his deeply rooted attraction to the question why some succeed and others not. Through Marlies Bastiaan picked up running and triathlon and found triathlon and running to be like the metaphor for fulfillment and having it all. The program initially wanted to give athletes the insights and the tools to become a better athlete, now the program passing beyond the limits of traditional consulting to build a multi dimensional life of having it all through the discovery of the true self and physical demands of running. Bastiaan has a Phd in Industrial Design and Business.
