“Unlock Your Potential” book launch in Amsterdam
The second workshop and launch of Marlies’ new book ‘Unlock your potential’ is a fact!
After successfully unlocking some serious female potential in New York, Marlies proudly introduced her new book for the first time in Europe, on March 18th in Amsterdam… and the turn up was incredible! An energetic crowd of over 60 guests varying from business women to influencers and editors to customers, undeniably embraced Marlies’ latest work during the 2-hour interactive workshop. And even national TV (RTL boulevard) paid tribute by airing the launch for 850.000 viewers the same night!
Marlies guided her audience through every chapter of her book with sometimes very personal examples from her own story to success. From career to family, from health to sensuality, Marlies challenged the crowd to look in the mirror and structure the process of self-realization in life’s most important areas. With many (some very intense) group exercises and powerful guest performances by Amanda Rijff, Tanja Jess, Heleen Mees and Antoinette van den Berg, the book launch became the second memorable day where women dared to share some of their deepest desires, erotic fantasies, life’s challenges and even wrote compliments on each other’s bodies, literally!
“As masters of our own destiny, the world is asking us to shape a future of opportunity for ourselves. What matters now is action. Action on our part, starting with the woman in the mirror.” – Marlies Dekkers
The ‘Unlock Your Potential’ life journal is now available to purchase on our website.
REFLECTIONS FROM YOUR MIRROR
FOR THE WOMEN OF THE WORLD
Between king and QUEEN
Who is Tasya van Ree? The mysterious girl in the big black hat has been fascinating art connoisseurs and fashion lovers alike since she burst onto the scene with her stunning black-and-white photographs of celebrities like Michelle Rodriguez and (one-time lover) Amber Heard. I asked the Hawaiian-born visual artist of Dutch-Japanese ancestry (41) about her art and soul. “Between both King and Queen is where I exist.”
Sara Mearns (31) is New York City Ballet’s boldest ballerina. A passionate, intense dancer, she started dancing at 3 and starred in Swan Lake when she was only 19. But instead of resting on her laurels, Sara has kept challenging herself with daring projects, from a collaboration with hip-hop dancers to a leading role in a Broadway show. I talked with the fierce Swan Queen about sacrifices, body confidence, and how to turn pain into gain. “I’m not the typical skinny, tall, long-neck kind of ballerina.”
The art of love!
