Become part of the most active
Co-Active global coaches community that supports you AND challenges you to grow. 

No, you don't need another training. You don’t need to have it all figured out before you start or grow your business. You don't need to spend one more day perfecting your website. (You don't even need a website, frankly!)

All you need is to start moving. To take small steps forward, instead of staying stuck trying to get it perfect.


The good news: you don't have to do it alone!


We’ve built a community of bold and bright Co-Active coaches from all over the world. We learn from each other and lift each other up. We learn together from a variety of great mentors and experts. All the mentors are MCC's, CPCC/PCC and/or CTI front of the room leaders who build their own successful coaching business. They do it their own way and are already an inspiration to others to do the same.


And when it comes to building your business: There is no 'one right way' to do it. Every week Manon and the rest of the community can help you take that next step, the one that makes sense for you. And once a month we invite a business expert. But nobody that shows you a 1-size fits all framework or teels you how to build that '6-figure coaching business'. Only people who walk the talk found their way and show you what might work for you as well.

Join our co-active community and grow fierce in your coaching. Stop overthinking: get answers, feedback and support.

Simply Start is the global community for coaches who want to stop thinking and start doing. A place that inspires you to be bold and learn from each other, as well as from inspiring experts and mentors. A place for coaches that want to connect with bright, professional coaches like themselves in a space where they can connect to celebrate their wins and overcome their doubts, and even find collaboration partners.


Get out of your head, and in our community.


As soon as you put yourself out there, your saboteurs, imposter voices, fears and doubts will start to show up! There will be days you feel like you’re doing exactly what you’re meant to be doing.. and there will be days you wonder what the heck you are doing.  It’s so freeing to see that other brilliant coaches experience exactly the same.

We grow better together. Read here what members say.


Within the Simply Start community, you’ll be supported and inspired to take action -- even when your saboteurs tell you not to. Because confidence, clarity, and growth come from doing, not from thinking.  


“Courage is contagious. Every time we choose courage, we make everyone around us a little better and the world a little braver.”

A tribe of fun and curious people from all over the world.

When I signed up for Simply-Start, I had no idea what to expect. Among all advertisements I receive from different media, this one spoke directly to me. It felt “real”. 


With “Simply-Start”, Manon has created a safe, playful and authentic learning environment. She always makes sure that the best coaches and leaders come to spend valuable time with the group. 


Together with the Simply-Start community, Manon has managed to build a tribe of fun and curious people from all over the world. 


Manon is a creative, positive and curious leader, who is engaged in the progress and the learnings of the group. There is always something new to discuss and discover. 

Together with Manon and the great people presenting to this community, there is never a dull moment.

I feel supported! Highly recommended.

I felt an instant attraction to Simply Start and was (and still am) always looking forward to the Friday newsletter: exactly the right length and the content to drive inspiration. When the opportunity arrived to take part in the Simply Start member community I did not hesitate and now I can say that it was truly what I needed: the community is really welcoming, open and supportive. There are coaches at very different stages in their career and this is for sure an added value, as everybody can learn from each other. It has been really invaluable. And, about Manon.. she is Simply Great. She is an excellent facilitator, very energetic and kind. I admire her ability to uncomplicate things. She cares about her community and always looks for ways to improve the tools we use. Even though we never met in person I feel very supported by her. Highly recommended!

Manon creates movement  where I experienced ‘stuckness’ and ‘messiness'.

"Manon is a wonderful business coach who was able to create movement there where I experienced ‘stuckness’ and ‘messiness’. She has a power to sense and explore what’s needed at any given moment which empowers me and creates bigger opportunities. I enjoy her pragmatism and powerful questions together with useful tips and advices. She supports on a more strategic level to define my business together with the pragmatic support with regards to texts and articulate what I actually want to say. I love her empathic combined with a pragmatic approach which really brings me and my business further!"

Can you tell me a bit more about the coaches in the community?

All coaches are co-active trained. Some are at the beginning of their journey, other have already a couple of hundred hours under their belt. This is what Natalie, one of the members says: "Simply Start is truly one of the more valuable gems in my coaching growth and learning right now. I love being able to watch the demos and reflect. The office hours are so helpful. The people that are in the group are thoughtful, intelligent, rich with experience and diversity of offerings, clearly committed and just so warm and comfortable to be with. Manon's care and dedication and presence are so clear, and her ability to hold a safe, structured, focused yet fluid and open space for learning and reflection are truly impressive. Basically, I love it!" Natalie Claire (Co-active coach, US)

How are these sessions different from demo's is already saw?

A big difference with many coaching demo's is that we never ask the coach to focus on anything specific. The coach does not know the coachee and the coachee brings in a topic that is alive exactly in that moment. That makes every session wonderful, real and a valuable learning experience.

What's the background of the mentors that do live coaching session and classes?

The Coaches have at least 500+ hours of coaching experience (PCC level) . We know and invite the coaches personally. We also regularly invite MCC coaches to coach. But we intentionally have a diversity of backgrounds because we welcome diversity and there are many wonderful and very powerful coaches that do not have their MCC certification (yet). We regularly ask out members who they want to see coach. We invite coaches who build a sustainable coachnig business themselves, who coach not only coaches and who share our values and have a focus on giving. Members are regularly invited to share who their favorite mentors are and who they would like to see coach or learn from.

What times are live gatherings since everyone is in a different timezone?

We have sessions on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and alternate in timess for classes:
At 5pm CET (9am PT) or 10am (5pm SGT) to facilitate all timezones as much as possible. If you can not join live the replays will always be available!
Sometimes the times wil vary because of the availibilty of a teacher.
