The Netherlands faces an economy that is say crippling. People and professionals are put outof their jobs and try to create an existence, which can get difficult if they also have to deal with a mortgage that can change towards more expensive because of government-like decisions.

Starting an online business van be one solution. You can do this from your home, in principle. In the ruling Netherlands, not always. An online cycle shop was caught in having a retail activity where the planning committee did not allow this. Which could have consequences for other small-scaled, house-run shops. Conditions are: you can not be open for retail from home, you may probably not have stock in your house and probably no workshop to mend or prepare products. Not every community council has the same rules on this but it is easy to understand that this is not encouraging people to get outof the unemployment schemes starting their own low-scale business online.

To comfort: not all communities have those rules and not all online shops require to have stock and other activities in their house. So if you like to start your own business online, make a good orientation and think opportunities.

My passion? Being independent of other people's decisions. I'm horrified with what happens to pensions, or to see that people at relatively are put aside the economy because they simply are too old... at the age of 45+. Do you want to escape this threadmill too? Take action. You can do it.
