About Jan van der Kolk

Who Am I

Hello and Welcome to my page. I am Jan van der Kolk (firstname Jan, a real Dutch name), born and raised in Beverwijk, The Netherlands, a town about 20 km North-West of Amsterdam. The last 20 years I have been living in Almere, a new town, build on reclaimed land, about 20 km East of Amsterdam.

My first visit to Asia was in 1980, when I made a stop-over in Singapore on a business trip to Japan. I always wanted to go back (even bought some travel guides about Thailand that time), but I had to wait 25 years - till after my retirement in 2007 - before I actually made my first trip to Thailand. On that first trip I met my partner.

And after 67 years been living in The Netherlands I have relocated to Thailand in July 2010 to live together with my Thai partner in Cha-Am, province Phetchaburi, about 200 km South of Bangkok and I am loving it!

I have 2 grown-up children, 1 boy and 1 girl and 3 grandsons.

My Nutritional Experience

Way back in the 80's I already learned that the food we eat does not contain anymore all the nutrients that our body needs to create an optimum health. It not only 'would be good' to take nutritional supplements, it is 'absolutely necessary' to take supplements. And for our body to recognise the supplements as food, they need to be all- natural, derived from plants, not made from oil or mineral rocks.

From that time on I am already taking many nutritional supplements on a daily basis. First from Amway, later from Nutrition For Live and VitaMark. And I am convinced that my health and wellbeing is greatly influenced by me taking these supplements.

Unfortunately the high price of these natural supplements makes it difficult to build a successful growing business, creating a residual income.

Today Joy To Live is the first company bringing all natural, high quality, premium nutritional supplements for low, Walmart-type prices. And J.D.I is the first company with their Multi-Vitamin with added Stem Cell Nutrition Support.

My Network Marketing Experience

I first was introduced to MLM in 1980 when Amway opened their offices as the first MLM company in The Netherlands and I feld in love with the concept of MLM. During the following 10 years I signed up over 500 people, but my group never grew to over 40 people at a time. However, I have learned a lot about Network Marketing during these 10 years.

In 1990 a second company entered The Netherlands and after a long time of hesitations ("when you want to be successful, you stay with Amway and never change companies1") I decided to join. Here I have seen the real success of MLM, my group grew to over 1000 people within only a short couple of months!

When the results with this company went down, I was hired to run the office where I learned all about MLM from the inside. Unfortunately we could not get the results going up, even not after we changed from a MLM to a Party-Plan concept, and after 7 years we had to close the company.

But, once network marketing gets into your blood, it never gets out! Particularly when you see the lifestyles and freedom of some of the people that you admire in network marketing. You know in the back of your mind that success could be Yours with a positive mental attitude and persistence and determination!

My Online Experience

Now I am fascinated by the power of working on the internet. It has its rewards but also its downfalls. There is a lot of glitz and promises of quick riches as well as making it seem like a cake walk to earn money. I have learned many lessons on what to do and what not to do and, as so many, have been scammed a few times and I've fallen for the hype also.

I have tried many programs over the years to try and make my online fortune with varying degrees of success. The two type of products that everybody needs, be it online or offline, be it nutritional supplements, travel, coffee, gold, silver, or whatever else, are tools and advertising. When selling tools and advertising people don't need to give up what they are already doing and what they are already enthousiastic about. They just join you because they always need tools and advertising to promote and expand their business.

For Tools I am using The Simple Money System and 20Now Marketing and for Advertising The 7K Team System. Please email me for more information about these programs.

Building your business will take time, effort, patience, BELIEF that it WILL happen for you, and persistance. I want to help others find their success and work with people who are committed to their own success, but need a little support along the way.

- If your personality and work ethic is like mine, which is to believe that you must work to earn, as there are no opportunities that are legal and ethical where you can do nothing and get paid;
- If you believe that the real way to build a business is by “Building with Friends”;

I Am Here To Help You!
