Your co-creator and mentor: Melanie 

I am Melanie van der Storm, the creative force behind Idea Shapers. I have a passion for creating new concepts and I could chat for hours about new business ideas and shaping the ideal business lifestyle.

My expertise lies in innovation, marketing and facilitation.

After an international career in marketing, I began freelancing in 2016. I helped B2B scale-ups find and claim their market positioning and scale their business. Besides, I’ve coached hundreds of solo entrepreneurs in marketing and business strategy during my time as a facilitator at Google.

Now, I help ambitious freelancers scale and reconnect their passions with their business.

Why? Because I see many talented freelancers feeling stuck in their careers, afraid to make choices and take action. It pains me to see that their dreams and skills have grown, but their business has not. My mission is to address this market challenge and help them break free from this cycle.

That’s where my method comes in. I’ve developed a way to make it easier for you to figure out what you want, make decisions, and start turning your ideas into reality.

It’s a blend of life crafting, innovation, and business strategy that helps you create a smart product offering that matches with your skills, vision, and client goals. It’s all about keeping your creativity alive while growing your business.

Melanie’s genius is her capacity to get entrepreneurial challenges and translate them into concrete business development and online marketing solutions. She is great when communicating her ideas in such an energizing and crystal clear way that people never leave empty-handed after a session with her. She is proactive, enthusiastic and will bright up any room when needing someone inspiring and knowledgeable!

I would recommend Idea Shapers to anyone who, like me, is struggeling with focus and has many ideas but also for those who are looking for a new way in live that brings them joy and uses their potential. 

Melanie helped me to give shape to my business ideas. Through visualizing personal values ​​and goals I learned in which way I come to full advantage of my potential. Melanie made this very insightful, using illustrations and mind mapping, and it surprised me how she was able to complete me whenever I was a bit confused.

Melanie is clearly skilled and experienced in the field of professional development and has a genuine interest in the person opposite of her.
