Wondering how to grow your business without going crazy, doing things you hate or changing who you are?

Welcome to my orbit: I can teach you all about that!

I’m Brigitte van Tuijl, writer and master coach.

I work with women entrepreneurs, and help you release the invisible cage you feel trapped in – so you’re free to do business & life YOUR way, without compromising, sacrificing or changing who you are.

I have over 17 years experience as an entrepreneur, and almost two decades experience as a (business) coach.

In addition to being highly intuitive & a powerful energy worker, I’m also a master coach with expert coaching skills.

When you work with me, 1-1 or in my Divinely Selfish Community, you benefit from ALL my skills and expertise in the areas of business, mindset, energy & healing.

And from my wicked sense of humor, no-nonsense attitude, and the occasional cursing, of course 😉
I’m currently working on my upcoming book series:

“The Art of Divine Selfishness – how to transform your life, your business & the world by putting yourself first.”

The first book in this series, Unmute Your Life – break free from fear & go for what you REALLY want’, is set to release in June.

And finally: I LOVE people – in moderation.

That’s why I limit appointments to an ABSOLUTE maximum of 4 per week.

Having loads of alone time keeps me happy and prevents me from turning into a raging

lunatic 😉

Want to build your business around everything YOU love & need, too?

Just leave your name & email address here, and you’ll receive free articles on doing business & life YOUR way every Wednesday!

And if you’re looking for my official qualifications? Here they are:

  • Thoroughly trained transformational coach (2000-2002)
  • Reiki Master
  • Accelerated Change Template Coach (I was the first coach in The Netherlands to work with this groundbreaking method that changes your beliefs at the subconscious level. I’m trained to work with it 1-1 and with groups.)
  • Soul Realignment practitioner (reading, clearing & realignment of your Akashic Records, the energetic database of your soul.)
  • And I’ve followed a gazillion programs on topics like sales, public speaking, marketing, copywriting, mindset, manifesting, and much more – that you of course benefit from when you work with me.

In the past two decades I helped thousands of women get clear on their true dream and make it real.

My clients have launched businesses globally, published their first books, doubled their incomes, and realized their most important goals and desires.

My first book, Ontdek Wat Je Echt Wilt – En Maak Daar (Je) Werk Van, was published in 2008 and sold thousands of copies. Unmute Your Life is the first book in the ‘The Art of Divine Selfishness’ series

My Books

I published my first book ‘Ontdek wat je écht wilt – en maak daar je werk van’ (available in Dutch only) in 2008 (Uitgeverij Ank Hermes).

My next project is a series of 4 books:

“The Art of Divine Selfishness – How to transform your life, your biz and the world by putting yourself first.”

The first book in this series, Unmute Your Life – break free from fear & go for what you REALLY want, will be published in June.

You can read all about the book here.


Some random things about me:

I live in Leiden, The Netherlands. I’m totally happy and in love with my man Arjen since 2001. We share our lives, but not a house – we both enjoy having our own place too much.

I LOVE great food (anything healthy with loads of flavor).

There’s nothing you can wake me up for – I love my sleep too much.

I don’t do hobbies.

I LOVE to read books. But that’s not a hobby. That’s a must, like oxygen and water.

Want to read more about my journey and how I turned myself from a Crappy Hermit to a Happy Hermit? You can read it here.

Some random pictures of me:

And finally, some random pictures of me. ‘Cause everybody looooves pictures, right?

Well, not me. I don’t like having my picture taken, and very rarely look good in them.

So I’m very happy with these pictures Raquel Otten took of me when I spoke on Maartje Koper’s ‘Money Is Love’ event in June 2017:

So I’m very happy with these pictures Raquel Otten took of me when I spoke on Maartje Koper’s ‘Money Is Love’ event in June 2017:

The photographer managed to capture me with a pretty normal expression and looking half decent in these.

Which is quite a feat, given the weird faces I tend to make when I speak.

Like these lovely faces I made while creating this Facebook Live Stream. 

These pics are stills from it:

I rest my case.

My kinda formal bio:

I’m an entrepreneur since 2003. Published author since 2008. Working globally (instead of in The Netherlands only) since 2011.

I coached and inspired thousands of people to find and monetize their mission.

I’ve created over a dozen online programs and products, wrote hundreds of articles, and created more audio lessons and (free) teleclasses than I can even remember (I lost count around number 200 or so ?

I’m an expert at:

  • Doing business on your terms;
  • Getting clear on your purpose & mission;
  • Being true to who you really are in business and life;
  • Getting clear on what you deeply, truly, REALLY want;
  • Changing your mindset and beliefs (both on a conscious and subconscious level);
  • Aligning / clearing your energy;
  • Clearing up all the crap that shows up the minute you start dreaming bigger and be who you really are in your business.
  • My first book was published in 2008. It’s about finding your purpose and mission, and aligning your job with it. (Available in Dutch only.)

I’m a coach, mentor, author and inspirational speaker (both on-and offline).
