As a Former LinkedIn™ employee, I had a front-row seat in witnessing the world’s largest professional network grow to currently more than 706 million members in over 200 countries while generating +$320K in revenue in less than 12 months.
I founded Make the Leap Digital from a tropical co-working space in Bali and since then I have worked, lived, and traveled around the world while helping clients across 15+ countries from the comfort of my 11-inch laptop to digitally transform the way they work.
I am now a sought-after thought leader in LinkedIn and remote work. My story has been featured in Thrive Global, AD Rotterdam, & LINDA and I have been nominated one of the most inspiring and ambitious women entrepreneurs in The Netherlands by VIVA400.
But I didn’t get where I am today by snapping my fingers.
Back in 2018, I was working at one of the world’s largest tech companies in the “Sillicon Valley” of Europe, Dublin, sippin’ free almond cappuccinos while doing my dream job (at least, I thought).
After a while the office walls started to come down on me, and the – very – comfortable office job with high-paying salary, free food + gym and rooftop barista bar did not feel as special as they used to.
I wanted to have the freedom to work from wherever I felt happiest and most productive and have the flexibility to design my own work schedule – perhaps traveling the world while doing it.
But, I was “stuck” in a traditional 9-to-5 corner office, advising hundreds of business leaders how to digitally transform their business through LinkedIn, resulting in +$320K in revenue within 12 months – without having met a single customer face-to-face (hello remote work!).
And that’s when it hit me.
What if I could teach others how to digitally transform the way they work — perhaps traveling the world while I’m at it?
That’s when back in early 2018, I decided to quit my corporate job without solid back-up plan and I booked a ticket to Bali to “explore the world of remote work”. Before I even realised, I secured my first high-ticket client worth $2000 — without having a website or a business name.
Within 30 days I turned Make the Leap Digital into a profitable online business helping clients worldwide to unlock the power of LinkedIn to kickstart or grow their online brand and business so they, too, can enjoy the freedom & flexibility that they deserve.
I now live my dream life having worked, lived and traveled across six different countries (incl. Bali, California, and Medellin) while having created a lifestyle that allows me to work from wherever I feel the happiest and most productive.
And guess what? You can live the life of your dreams, too — if you take a leap of faith.

What They Said
In one word: Awesome. […] when I wasn’t even half-way the list Mandy sent me to check and adjust on my profile, I had a lot more engagement on my profile. With one post I closed two new corporate clients and another post three new coaching clients.
Mandy is super at teaching tips to help improve your LinkedIn profile. The content suggestion info is great to help generate more engagement for LinkedIn. My profile strength has also improved and I have been appearing in many more searches on LinkedIn.
I am already very happy with the result! I have now acquired several leads from LinkedIn and three actual customers. Mandy has helped me to optimize my profile with the right keywords, and I am now easy to find for my target group, amazing!
I really found this masterclass helpful! Mandy explains everything very clearly and shows useful examples. After the masterclass, you can implement the steps right away at your own pace. I also found the E-book very comprehensive and nice designed with step-by-step lessons which makes it easy to use!
I’ve seen a huge increase in my Linkedin statistics! My profile is found more, by the right people, my posts are more ‘successful’ and overall Linkedin has become more fun.
Having just finished Mandy’s one-day Linkedin Strategy Intensive, it was clear that there was still a lot more for me to learn. She came very prepared and had tailored various parts of her approach to the key questions that were on my mind. […] If you’re looking for a Linkedin coach, I can strongly recommend Mandy.
The “5 Things I’ve Gained Since Working Abroad after Studies” went viral with 1000+ likes within 24 hours and 20.000+ views within 48 hours! The power of statistics. Mandy inspires people and definitely knows what she’s talking about. Because of her, I found myself a new way to share my experiences and connect with people from all over the world.
I was provided a lot of insights that dramatically increased my visibility on Linkedin. […] She gave me a lot of Linkedin tips that can take my business to another level. I can’t wait to see my transformation within the next 30 days.
I’ve worked with Mandy on a number of online projects [..] We’ve been getting great results and she helped us grow our email list with 250+ high-quality leads within one week and gain three new clients only one week after. LinkedIn™ is a wildly powerful platform with massive potential for online business owners like myself.
Mandy always goes above and beyond with her work, she is creative, detail oriented and has a high knowledge of website design, SEO and digital advertising at LinkedIn. If you want to increase your company’s brand awareness and get the right quality leads for your business, Mandy will set you up for success.
I’ve had three recruiters reaching out to me with job opportunities within the first week after Mandy helped me with my LinkedIn profile – I had none prior that!
Success doesn’t lead to happiness – happiness leads to success. I believe that in order to be successful AND happy you need to lead with purpose.
There’s no need to reinvent the wheel -implement proven processes and spend less time figuring things out and more time building your dream business.
To achieve financial freedom you need a profitable strategy in place to hit your ambitious income goals. Because a business without money is just a hobby.
What I believe
I believe that the future of work is remote and that…
