In today’s Episode of the Online Learning Podcast, I am delighted to welcome four guests from the New Media Europe Conference 2015; Jelle Derckx, Jonathan Tilley, Katrina Buderuus and Cliff Ravenscraft.  After these great people gave scintillating speeches I was lucky enough to grab them for a few minutes each for an exclusive interview for the Online Learning Podcast

In this Week’s Episode: In this Episode we discuss:

Jelle Derckx

  • How “Think and Grow Rich” inspired Jelle to blog about personal development
  • How Jelle came to create his online course about simplifying your life
  • Offers some advice about how online blogging can help online course creators
  • How to make money with an awesome online blog
  • Why podcasting is such a great way to create a community
  • How to take the answers from interview guests and turn it into a blog article which would be really engaging
  • Why you need to keep blog posts short and punchy
  • Why Jelle is going to create an English course about minimalism on Udemy

Jelle lives in the Netherlands and was born in 1984. Performing has always been his passion and he graduated from Acting College when he was 24. From 24 to 27 he didn’t have a great time and was struggling with negative thoughts about himself and was constantly comparing himself with others.

Jelle decided to make a big break and went to Brazil with a book: Think and Grow Rich. That book changed Jelle’s life and thinking completely. He came back to the Netherlands and made life changes (minimalism) and decided to share it on a blog.

After a year he made a course on minimalism, wrote a book and started podcasting about the topics he was passionate about.

Now, Jelle has two blogs, one on acting and filmmaking and one about personal development and minimalism. Both blogs have a podcast and an email list of 4500 people. Jelle is 31 and he’s living in Amsterdam as an entrepreneur.
