Maarten Peters is a devoted family man with an MBA degree from the University of Southern California. He is a product & process developer, manager and marketer by trade, social and for-profit entrepreneur, real estate mogul in progress, entrepreneurial coach and mentor, speaker on anything business, student of Life, believer in karma and reciprocity, and fervent supporter of the 80/20 rule and the KISS principle.
Keywords best describing him are: Curious beyond belief and passionately MAD (Making a Difference)!
Throughout his life Maarten has been fascinated by business. The whats, hows and particularly whys associated with running a successful business left him with many questions to be answered and answers to be questioned.
Studying business theory in an official capacity at various business schools across the Western World, and gaining practical hands-on experience through work and leisure on 4 continents, Maarten came to the realization that there is a wealth of experience available from the business world offering solutions and best practices relatable to most ‘regular’ personal situations and main life events. He started gathering the stories and connecting the dots and 'BOL - the Business of Life' is the ‘living and growing’ product of this quest.

I spent three years in business school learning all the strategies for making a company do well, turn around, increase sales...I never once realized that this same set of principles could be applied to my own life! Instead of acquiring capital, our goal is to increase happiness. Thank you, Maarten for pointing me in the right direction!!
