WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE THIS TYPE OF BUSINESS?

I think that it was destiny preparing me all the way through. I started out 15 years ago as a Junior Financial Account Manager. I still remember that day as if it was yesterday; my previous employer almost hired me on the spot! They wanted someone young without work experience so that they could mold and teach everything about the business. I took the challenge and dedicated myself in learning everything from them, reviewing every file, knowing each structure and absorbing all the information I could get. I knew that I was given a once in a lifetime chance and experience, working and learning from my former teammates who had 10 to 25 years of relevant work experience. I think it was my previous employers that taught me, helped me and gave me the platform and the opportunities to love what I do for which I will be forever grateful.

WHO IS YOUR INSPIRATION?

Difficult question to answer, if I have to mention one single person, but instead I rather have different sources of inspiration. I think my inspiration is a mix of the beauty I find in everyone around me and not just one single person. I’m a hard worker; I get that from my mother who is never tired and always working. Integrity and loyalty reminds me of my husband. My daily motivation I get from my children, especially when I realize that they are looking up to me. My fellow Co-Director Nathaniëla, gives me confidence and positivism when needed. And the list goes on. But if I look at my past and where I came from, life was not easy, and I needed to have the necessary attributes to become the person I became today. And although I had people around me, when the going got tough, I always had one person that I turned toward who has always had my back. That person is ME, being fueled by these different sources of inspirations driven by faith and trust in God. I always turn inwards to pull out the strength to keep me moving forward, so I guess my greatest inspiration is myself and each source of inspiration feeds into my ‘why’ and reminds me how I want to live.

TO WHAT DO YOU ATTRIBUTE YOUR SUCCESS?

When I think of success, the following words come to mind: Goals, Drive, Willpower, Teamwork, Optimism, Passion, and Communication. These are all components I’ve learned in my career and from the amazing people I’ve had the privilege to work for and with. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you came from. The only difference between the people who will make it, and those who won’t, is simply enough resilience to keep moving forward.

WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST AMBITION

To become one of the biggest and best service providers in the Industry that stands for trust, equal treatment and possibilities. Offering a workspace to individuals where they can reach their fullest potential. Believing in them and giving them a chance to be all that they can be resulting in both our company as well as our clients reaping the benefits of their success. To create a place that will keep reminding all of us, that sky is not the limit!

Nathaniëla Kwidama

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE THIS TYPE OF BUSINESS?

It wasn’t a really a choice I consciously made at the time. It was 9 years ago when I decided to move from the Netherlands to Curaçao, I felt the need for change and growth, so I reached out to practically all companies I could find on Curaçao in pursuit of a new challenge. After a while, a corporate service provider reached out to me with an offer. And that’s how corporate services became a part of my daily life. Looking back, I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions I ever made. At that time being only 22 years young, I wasn’t sure what I wanted, untill what I wanted found me.

WHO IS YOUR INSPIRATION?

I find inspiration in a variety of things, people and actions that I experience in my daily life. Therefore, it’s not one person but many persons and life events. I would need an extra page to answer this question, hahaha. All jokes aside, the truth is I get a lot of inspiration simply in watching the process of creation, to experience how something out of mostly nothing turns into a reality. I enjoy the challenge of co-creating one step at the time. I am also greatly inspired by other leaders, leaders who show courage, who show compassion, who show enthusiasm, leaders who show support and can celebrate the victory of others. And lastly, I get to be inspired by myself. I’ve come a long way from where I’ve been to become who I am today. There have been many struggles but also many joyous moments. A lot of unforgettable ups but also life changing downs, yet today I proudly stand as co owner, managing director, mother, sister, daughter & life partner. Perfectly imperfect with a clear goal in mind: To reach my full personal potential and authentic power through which I hope to inspire, motivate and help others to reach their own.

TO WHAT DO YOU ATTRIBUTE YOUR SUCCESS?

Commitment, perseverance, focus, not giving or taking any excuses and the art of making things happen in combination with fun. I also attribute a big deal of my succes to my previous employers who each offered me opportunities to learn and grow in my profession. To them I will remain forever grateful for believing and for the trust they once vested in me. And lastly, I contribute my success to those who once said no to me, it’s because of them, I found the motivation to push forward and make it happen myself.

WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST AMBITION?

To become the leading corporate service provider in the industry, standing for quality and value of service. To create a platform on which we can offer opportunities to professionals and entrepreneurs alike to help them in pursuing their goals and dreams. Whether it’s a professional starting a company or launching a career, I’m commited to contribute to their success.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO NEW ENTREPRENEURS AND START-UPS WHO ARE TRYING TO START UP THEIR OWN BUSINESS

Jesmarine:

Dare! Dare to be anything out of the ordinary and most importantly dare to be who you really are! There is really no excuse. Silence the voices in your mind and speak up, stand up and never doubt yourself. Take the risk, come on board, spread your wings and soar the endless possibilities this life has to offer.

Nathaniëla:

Never underestimate your own ability and always keep believing in yourself. Once you’ve decided you are ready, make sure you are surrounded by professionals that can assist you in achieving your goals and have your best interest at heart. When confronted with obstacles, meet them with grace; obstacles are usually the stepping stones taking you to the next level. Life is about growth and change, just go with the flow.
