For ambitious women who want to make a difference
Do you want to make an impact with meaningful work that you love to do and that you are really good at, without getting ahead of yourself?
Welcome to Transition Central. We are a movement of ambitious women who want to have an impact with our work. We also understand that we will go five times as fast and will be 38 times as effective when we do this in close collaboration.
First of all this: your desires are not unrealistic or too big and there is nothing wrong with your level of ambition. Treasure it. It will bring you far. We do understand if your current life doesn’t reflect the ideal state described above. Do you keep your plates spinning and feel exhausted at the end of the day? Are you asking yourself what it means to you, to have an impact with your work? Are you able to combine your ambition with your family life? These are all legitimate questions that we would love to help you with.
Courage and self-confidence
Leading a meaningful life is not a quest but a decision. It is the decision to:
-Support yourself 100%, for who you are, for your ideals and for what you have to offer;
-Radically make your own choices. Your path is your path. Only you need to know that your next step is right for you;
-Be yourself confidently with all your qualities and your passion;
-Build resilience so that you stand and follow through, even when things turn difficult;
-Recognize and deal with what doesn’t serve you anymore. Bye bye self-sabotage, victimhood and all other sorts of excuses;
-Stop getting paralyzed by fear. You will find and strengthen that part in you that dares to take action;
-Be courageous. Every time you connect yourself with your inner power, you enable yourself to move forward on your own path.
Together, we have an impact
Are you ready to turn your good intentions into action? Join Transition Central and become part of our tribe.

You will also receive the tools and the support to find and follow your own track. Together, we have an impact. Let’s begin today.
What others say about Transition Central
Attie Kuiken, businessowner at Ijkwerk: ‘I used to generate any motion and development from within, by myself. I have discovered the value of finding my actions and next steps from the fullness of a group. Carolien creates a nourishing environment for all participants so that everyone can take her steps on a personal level.’
M.F. ‘Transition Central breeds courage. That is because we are sharing our journeys. I have been offered many hands-on tools to get to know my inner world and inner game. The program was very practical. We were invited to take our own responsibility. No space to dwell on victimhood.’

1. Transition Central: The Online Course starts on Friday, June 21st with the first course, Me Time Magic. This course consists of six modules. You can download a new module every week, consisting of an assignment and a short audio instruction. Want to learn more about the other three courses? Go here for an overview.
2. Twice a month, you can participate in a 1.5 hours online video meeting call with Carolien. This is a moment to connect, to share your discoveries and to celebrate your successes. You can ask any question you have. These online calls are scheduled on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month from 8:00pm until 9:30pm Central European Summer Time. The calls will not be recorded, so mark your calendar so that you can attend live.
3. Between the online video meeting calls, you have access to a closed online group for encouragement, exchange, extra support, and questions. We will be using the user-friendly platform MeWe.com.
You can already participate in Transition Central for the small amount of 27 euros. This will give you access to the course, Me Time Magic, plus two online video meeting calls and a month worth of connection and support in the closed online Transition Central group. After the first free month, you can continue your membership of Transition Central for the monthly fee of 12.95 euro. This sets you up for continued access to the bimonthly online video calls and the closed online Transition Central group. In September 2019, a second paid course will start. You choose whether you invest in it or continue as a regular member. You can end your subscription any time.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much time do I need to reserve for Transition Central?
The assignments will take you about 30 minutes, max 60 minutes per week. We advise you to follow the rhythm of one module per week, but you are free to follow a slower pace. Besides working on the assignments, every two weeks you will spend 1.5 hours on the online video meeting call. Obviously, the amount of time you’ll hang out in the online Transition Central community is totally up to you.
What notice do I need to give to cancel?
There is none. You pay on a monthly basis. If you want to cancel your membership of Transition Central, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will not charge you another month. Please give us at least two days notice before your monthly subscription renewal date. This date is mentioned on your invoice. This will give us the opportunity to administrate your cancellation request in a timely manner.
What if I want to cancel within the first month
No problem. You can cancel any time, including the first month. After this month, you will receive the last two modules of the first course, Me Time Magic. These materials are included in your 27 euro sign-up fee. When the first month ends, you will no longer have access to the bimonthly online video meeting calls with Carolien and the closed online Transition Central group.
Will the language of communication at Transition Central be English or Dutch?
We are starting out with two groups: an English group and a Dutch group. The content of both programs is similar. The meeting dates for the online video meeting calls are different though. The calls for the English group are on every second and fourth Wednesday of the month, in the evening from 8:00pm until 9:30pm, Central European Summer Time. The calls for the Dutch group are planned on every first and third Tuesday of the month, from 8:00pm until 9:30pm, Central European Summer Time.
What if I cannot participate in the online video meeting calls on Wednesday evenings because of conflicting agendas?
You have two options. If you speak Dutch, you are welcome to join the Tuesday evening calls on every first and third Tuesday of the month. The other option is to stick to the English group without participating in the online video meeting calls. All six modules come with a brief audio instruction and are self-explanatory. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and connect with others in the closed online group on MeWe.com. In case you are looking for additional support, you can opt for the VIP version of the program.
