Is this you?


You’re done with your soul-sucking 9 to 5 job and working for a boss and you want the freedom to travel the world


You feel that having your own online business can give you the freedom you’re longing for


You want a booming business with a consistent money flow, allowing you to live your dream life without worrying about money coming in


You want to turn your passion into your job and jump out of bed each morning filled with high energy


You want to help a lot of people with your online products and services, but you have no idea how to get new clients


You want to make more money online, without having a full agenda


You want to do business in a way that suits you and you don’t want to do things that don’t feel right


You like to work 1:1 with clients, but you also want to generate semi-passive income and help much more people with your products and services

You want more

You want more freedom.
You want to earn more money.
You want more growth.

But at the same time, you also want less.

You want a less busy schedule. Less stress. Less uncertainty. Spend less time searching for new clients. Working fewer hours.

You want to grow your business (or kickstart it!), but you don’t want to sacrifice your freedom.

You need convenience. Consistency. Effectiveness. Systems that do the work for you, instead of you working your butt off.

Yes? Then it’s time to set up (or scale up) your business in such a way that you can work less hours and make more money.

Imagine that …


… you know exactly how customers’ buying behavior works and you’re never missing out on sales again


… you earn money semi-passively while sleeping, traveling or having drinks with friends


… you know what kind of ads work well on social media and therefore stop losing money on ads


… you have a very strong line of product and services and that’s why customers will not and cannot say ‘no’ to you and they keep coming back for more


… your email lists keeps on growing because of all the people who show interest in your products and services


… you (re)gain complete confidence in yourself and your business


… you no longer have an income cap!! There is no limit to the number of clients you can attract, because you are working with a scalable product!


… you’ll start to enjoy your freedom more and that you’ll have more time to go traveling or spend time with your family


… you no longer have to “hustle” to get clients, because they come to you – completely automated


… you embrace sales and dare to sell without hesitation, giving you a “YES” in a sales call instead of the regular “Let me think about it…


… you can make your biggest dreams come true with your own online business

That’s what she said…

The Online Business Academy is such a complete online course! From mindset to practical marketing strategies and getting started with an online business… everything you need is in the Online Business Academy. It has everything for me to boost my business and it changes the way I look at it. Regularly I watch a module again (and again), because repetition is key. Grysilde explains it all very well and the way she does that is very accessibly (even for starters!). If you want to take your business to the next level, I definitely recommend the Online Business Academy! Thank you Grysilde for this top notch course!

The Online Business Academy was the perfect way for me to start setting up my own illustration course.

Among other things, Grysilde takes you from A > Z through the process of creating, developing and launching your own online course. The Online Business Academy will give you tips on how you can come up with a brand new course, how to design the format and chapters as well as the different platforms on which you can host your online course.

Moreover, you’ll also learn everything you need to know about succesfully launching your own online course and making semi-passively money with it.

Introducing your coach

Who is going to coach you?

Hi! I am Grysilde and I love traveling, delicious food and online marketing. As if freedom seeker I didn’t fit into the 9-to-5 life.

So in 2017 I made the big leap; I started my own business.

It was terrifying though, because I gave up my financial security, my well paying job and so much more.

But sometimes you just feel, “I have to do this.” The frustration and pain of staying in the same situation becomes bigger than the fear of change.

As cliché as it is… I wish I’d done this earlier, because after just a few months I made my first +10k month.

But to be fair… I didn’t achieve this by using clever strategies, but by working hard (aka: I worked more than 60 hours a week).

I knew there was another way to do this.

I’ve tested a lot of strategies and at one point I decided to completely change my business model. I went from billing hourly > to a scalable, hybrid business.

In a matter of time, I achieved the same results (+10k months) with this hybrid business model, but working only a few hours a day!!

The secret is working smarter, letting systems work for you, automating, scaling up and being incredibly clear on your ideal client and your messaging.

And that’s exactly what I want to help you with > setting up and scaling up your business in a way that you get more freedom and earn more money.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, but …

The Online Business Academy is for...

all service based businesses and entrepreneurs who want to earn passive income with their own online course.

For example: virtual assistants, graphic designers, web designers, photografers, copywriters, coaches, teachers, content creators, online course creators… and so on.

In the Online Business Academy you’ll see that there are a lot of modules for all type of service based entrepreneurs (your why, ideal client, marketing, funnels, website, converting copy, mindset etc.), but there are also 4 modules for online course creators. This way everyone can earn semi-passive income with their own online course.

I'm already an entrepreneur.... am I still getting enough value out of it?

If you’ve been in business for a while, but still feel like you can do better (because you want to attract more clients, or because you want to help fewer clients 1-on-1 and move toward a scalable business with semi-passive income), I’m sure you’re going to get plenty of tips and information from the course that will help you move forward.

As an entrepreneur, you never stop learning. For example, I invest in several courses every year, in the field in which I am already an expert. Why? Because I know that I always get something valueable out of it, with which I can grow my business even more.

When can I start?

When you sign up, you get instant access to the Online Business Academy. All modules are already online, so you can start right away. Do you like to binge watch all the lessons? Be my guest! But you can also watch one lesson or module per week. You’ll get lifetime access, so you can follow the lessons at your own pace!

The next VIP week is from February 1st till 8th, 2023. You’ll get free access to the VIP week when you sign up now.

Do I get lifetime access to the (expert) bonuses?

This varies by bonus. Dutch Digital Nomad’s own bonus (Digital Nomad Life) is available for life. Other experts’ bonuses may have different expiration dates 😉 You can find more information about this on the page in the online academy where you can claim their bonus.

You can “claim” the expert bonuses from February 1st till February 14th, 2023. This is also explained in the learning environment and I will also remind you of this by email.

What is a VIP Week, how long does it last and what can I expect?

The next VIP week is from February 1st till February 8th, 2023.

During this week, you will have access to a private Instagram community. We will dive into the teaching materials together and I will provide you with even more tips and information in the stories and posts on this Instagram account. You don’t have to be on Instagram all day, as the stories are saved in the highlights and the Instagram account remains available for 6 more weeks, so you can take a look at everything in your own time.

The VIP week (in the private Instagram community) is the perfect place to connect with fellow students and create great collaborations. In fact, during such a week you’re not working on your business by yourself, but we do it together.

You also get 4(!) live sessions via Zoom during the VIP week. During these masterclasses and Q&As, you can ask me all your questions.

You don’t have to attend all the live sessions via Zoom, because the live sessions are recorded and will appear in the online learning environment where you can watch everything back for 6 weeks.

Of course, it’s great if you try to be there and participate in the community, because this is the one week when I’m fully available to answer ALL of your questions!

I think it's a pretty big investment...

I understand. I used to look at these kinds of amounts of money the same way. But try to look at it differently. Look at what it brings you instead of what it costs.

If you can have a free life as an online entrepreneur, is it worth that one-time investment of €997?

If you can set up a semi-passive income stream so that you can make money while you travel or sleep, is it worth that one-time investment of €997?

If you can live your dream life, is it worth that one-time investment of €997?

Plus, if you put it in perspective it’s not that bad 😉 You can already earn back the investment by attracting two or three new clients!

I don't think I'm ready yet

Let’s be honest… After all, you’ve read this page for a reason. Do you want a successful online business? Would you like to have more freedom?

Ask yourself the following questions: (1) what will change in the upcoming months if I don’t take action? (2) What will happen to myself and my business if I do take action now? Wat would my business look like in three months?

I can tell you one thing: the perfect moment to start investing in yourself will never come. The right time for action is NOW. If you follow through now, in a few months you will have much more peace and freedom in your business.

What about the teaching materials?

Almost all lessons are recorded as video lessons and lead you step by step through the program. In addition, you’ll receive workbooks, manuals and templates. These can all be used on the computer, but you may also print them on paper.

How long will I have access to the Online Business Academy?

You’ll have lifetime access to all the learning materials, including all future updates!

Can I also pay in installments?

Yes, you can! You can pay in full or in 3 or 6 monthly installments.

Will I receive an invoice?

Yes! After you complete the payment you will receive an invoice by email. 

If you have another question, or if you’re struggling with something, feel free to send an email to and I will get back to you asap.

The choice is yours…


Do you keep muddling along?

In fact, you can choose to keep doing it the way you have been doing it for years. You can keep Googling and figuring everything out on your own, but will that really bring you closer to your dreams and goals? Will that make your online business successful and profitable?


Or do you choose more freedom, growth and money?

In that case, you choose to invest in yourself right now, so you can reap the benefits very soon. In fact, after doing the Online Business Academy, you’ll know exactly how to successfully start and grow your business, allowing you to live your dream life without worrying about money coming in!
