TheNextWomen100 is a list of the top 100 female entrepreneurs in the Netherlands. The latest edition was revealed at a festive event held at Amsterdam’s A’DAM tower on 28 May. Corona Sanders-Koek, owner of Zo Kinderopvang, Zo International Childcare, Big Ben Kids and KEKZ, was present. And for good reason: she’s on the list.
Listen to others, but don’t listen to everything they say!
Newspaper Het Parool asked women at the event for their best piece of advice. Corona replied: “Listen to others, but don’t listen to everything they say! Some people think they know better than you, particularly if you’re a young female entrepreneur. But you have to do it your own way if you want to grow your business.”
We aren’t that bothered about lists and rankings. We do what we do because we believe in it. But being on the list was a huge compliment for Corona and is confirmation that we at Zo Kinderopvang, Zo International Childcare, Big Ben Kids and KEKZ are successful and innovative. And we are secretly rather proud of that.
