Hi, my name is Obed Abbo. I help entrepreneurs build and grow their dream businesses.
Entrepreneurialism and coaching have been part of my life since I was young. At the age of 17, I started a bachelor’s degree in Marketing & Management in The Netherlands. As a side job, I worked as a team leader for a call centre at Planvisie: a financial service company. I learned how to attract, train, and manage call agents.
After completing my bachelor’s degree in Marketing & Management in 2007, I gained valuable work experience in different organizations worldwide. For example, I taught windsurfing in Italy, managed a guesthouse in Austria, and worked as a marketing officer for a music organization in Australia.
I started working as a coach for Kalff Fundraising Company in The Netherlands In 2011. When I got promoted to Senior Coach in 2012, I gained the privilege to coach both the fundraisers and the other coaches. By working as a team and showing massive support for each other, we raised millions of euros for non-profit organizations such as Greenpeace, Unicef, and Amnesty International.
During my career at Kalff, I participated in inspiring professional development courses and discovered powerful coaching tools that helped me transform my life. As a result, I got the clarity and confidence to start working as a Business Coach & Author in 2014.
It became clear to me what I wanted to create in my life. My vision is a world in which most people align with their talents and dreams. Not only will this bring us more joy and fulfilment, but it will also help us overcome the world’s challenges. The world needs our dreams and talents. Now more than ever.
While travelling the world, I have had the privilege to help more than 1,200 people improve their businesses through online coaching programs, retreats, group workshops, and speeches. I have spoken at unique places such as the Citizen Circle Conference, Wireless Life Workation, New Work Moms, and Bali Spirit Festival. And I feel privileged that many clients from around the world have shared their happy testimonials for my Online Coaching Services.
Another passion of mine is writing books. In my newest book, From Fear to Courage, 14 purpose-driven entrepreneurs and I share our stories of overcoming our fears and achieving our dreams. These 15 stories are designed to serve as a sort of roadmap—or a compass if you will—to lead each reader closer to a more courageous life where dreams can manifest more easily.
