Welcome on my Workaway.info profile. My name is Jelle and I am creating a place to come to connect, study, play, rest, work and share good vibes.
The Netherlands is in lock-down due to COVID-19 and I do not accept any workawayers.
I would like to show you how I live, my routines, the fruit-life with a smile and abundance. I am running a few demanding business projects at the moment and can use the help of a personal assistant to keep everything going.
Come to my place and I will make you give up, coffee, alcohol, tobacco, meat, fish, eggs, dairy, fowl, salt, oil and processed sugar, if this should amazing to you, then keep reading ;)
If you are a caring gentle easy going person, well-spoken in the English language, have a fully developed adult brain (+25-year) and the energy to tag along then let me know.
I like to be able to host people that are on a life path to be their best selves and create a lifestyle of high performance and self-actualization and are familiar with the psychological and physical work that this requires. If your message and profile do not reflect such a life path I can not host you at the moment. Please mention a vegetarian or plant-based lifestyle in your profile.
I'm a 36-year guy with a tech company and part-time employees on Fridays. I been running my business for more than 15 years and got a lot of other interests. I am very passionate about holistic health and like sharing this. I bought a new house in 2018 in Weesp, near Amsterdam and I had a place that I bought in 2013 that was located in a suburban area near Rotterdam. I used to host workawayers there and created very good memories doing so, I like to do the same at my place in Weesp.
I have been on a journey to live well with higher sensory processing sensitivity. You will find I have one leg rooted in business, society, technology, and voluntary responsibilities and one leg rooted back in nature, ritual, deeper consciousness and somatic body movement.
I have been described as a white wizard (Mayan) and negative personality traits from the ego are not welcome and big personality dragons shall not pass ;)
_README_ -> When sending a message, please acknowledge you will be okay eating a high carb mostly raw plant-based diet without cooking. I will try to reply in seven days, please indicate when a faster reply is preferred. Only contact me if you have experienced eating a mostly plant-based diet or get very enthusiastic when reading my profile and are eager to learn, see @mostlyraw for more information.
_README -> The new house is not fully finished yet. I have finished two bedrooms, a bathroom, two toilets, downstairs main kitchen and the office kitchen. The living room is almost finished, I need to finish the bigger utility room and office toilet, tiling the back garden, and more wiring, etc. The house also needs more decorating and all the more homey touches.
Yari my cat buddy that can be seen on some of the photos past away in February 2019 and I miss him terribly. I always used to have workawayers taking care of him while I was out exploring.
