EP – 119 A Grandfather Teaches Understanding of Others

Our conversation with Mijntje van Beers

The Cool Grandpa Podcast

My good friend Mijntje van Beers joins the conversation to talk about her grandfather’s influence on her and continues to have on her. You will enjoy learning about Mijntje’s grandfather’s past of living and working with the carnival, surviving through World War II, and his passion for painting.

Mijntje talks to us about how her grandfather’s lessons about tolerance and understanding another person’s perspective have served her well as she started a successful coaching and consulting business. Mijntje also shares with us how her grandfather, in her words, could be a little ‘cheeky’ and how that action created a special bond between them.

Go to Mijntje’s website and LinkedIn page to learn more about her and her coaching business.
