About Erno Hannink

Erno Hannink business coach

Erno is the founder of, a business coach, and he is a published author and speaker.

I am the initiator of bringing a number of international events to the Netherlands. October 2009 we started the first WordCamp Netherlands and had 170 attendees. In December 2009 we started the Social Media Club Amsterdam and in 2014 we had more than 1,000 members and 17 SMC’s in the Netherlands.

December 2012 I stepped down as organizer of SMC Amsterdam and SMC Netherlands.

I am married to Monique and we have two children, a son, and a daughter. Combining family and work has been important to me while I was the manager of marketing and sales at the company I worked for. It was clear to me that I needed to integrate this into my business when I started in 2006.

I read a lot and walk or run daily, this gives me peace in my head and gives me inspiration. Golf is also a game I like, but I don’t schedule enough time to play it more often.

Saturdays you can find me in our garden and after that on the soccer fields as a referee for the national soccer amateur league.


My first book Attracting Clients – How Independent Professionals and solopreneurs can get new clients using the internet has been published by A.W. Bruna for the Dutch market. This book helps independent professionals get more clients via the internet using social media. It is a very practical book and explains how to set up a blog, write articles, start an ezine and use online networking. It sold 3,000 copies in the Netherlands.

Since then I have published 10 more books.


I speak on decision-making for entrepreneurs. This can be a keynote, interactive presentation, or workshop. Learn about my availability for speaking at your event or in your company.

Set Priorities For Your Day

For entrepreneurs and business owners. Do you recognize this?

  • You run out of time every day.
  • The important non-urgent actions are rescheduled every week until they are urgent.
  • When you have completed ten important actions for today, there are still seventeen more actions on your to-do list. It feels like you are always behind schedule.
  • You hardly get to the most important work that you need to do.
  • You work hard in your company but it doesn’t deliver the results you are looking for.

The most important actions don’t get enough of your attention therefore you are missing the results from the company.

How do you get more focus on the most important work that needs to be done resulting in more impact? Choosing the most important actions that you will complete today and each day, will have a massive impact on your results.

I will help you to get a short overview of the most important actions you are going to do every day. So you can focus on the tasks that will move your business forward.

Working with him is truly valuable and impactful and will help you get real, real, life-changing results!”


I’m working on a podcast & magazine, but found it hard to make time for it because of my other (paid) assignments. They usually go first. Erno helped me to make my own work a priority too. And to keep it a priority. He checks in every week and asks me how my progress is. He also helps to better formulate my goals. Erno is the ‘kick in the butt’ but in a kind and respectful way 😉 Also, Erno has read a ton of books, has written serveral books on making better decisions and als has a podcast and bookcast. And he uses all this knowledge and experience in his coaching.
