Frieda Bakker

Nice to meet you!

My name is Frieda (43), a Dutch entrepreneur with a green thumb and a travel bug.

I have an allotment and vegetable gardens on my roof terrace. I occasionally SUP and stretch in yoga classes on a weekly basis. On Thursdays you may find me on one of the Dutch mountains, de Westfriese Omringdijk, walking with my great friend, my sister’s dog.

I love a good conversation, especially those in which something’s actually happening and shifting. To me, not much else beats dropping pennies and clarity of matters.

“Ha! Yes, finally! The air is cleared! On we go!”

Downsizing

My talent is seeing and simplifying the essence of sometimes difficult or overwhelming matters on deeper levels.

A good example is the downsizing of my life and my clutter. You can find more about this on my page My Tiny House. I can proudly say that it’s the very first tiny house blog in the Netherlands.

I like the downsizing of what’s going on inside me even more: beliefs, fears, ideas, assumptions. Originated or originating from upbringing, education, society, culture, history, and the zeitgeist.

Just BEing

To be able to downsize that, I have to feel it and look at myself in the mirror. The outside world is a good help in this. Recognition, acknowledging it, and then I can clear it up and let it go.

This can be quite confronting at times, but it’s always liberating. What naturally follows is change.

The purpose of this all? Expansion. BEing. That’s my passion and that’s what it’s about. More space for who and what is underneath.

Pioneer

And underneath that is a free spirit, a pioneer and a self-starter. If there’s a need for something, I set out to find or create it. As a result, I automatically initiate new initiatives and opportunities.

I have done that in the Tiny House Movement in the Netherlands and America with my project My Tiny House and my American company.

As a student I did that at the University of Applied Sciences with circular agriculture.

And now I do that as a simplifier for entrepreneurs.
