Frederik Van Lierde was born in 1974 and he consider himself still as a young entrepreneur. Frederik Van Lierde started to sell at the age of 12, when his father had Open-Door days. He was selling the garden furniture stock.
His grandfather Eduard Van Lierde always told him that if you work hard you can reach everything you want. Ever since, his thought is with him.
One day his father came home with an IBM PS2 computer. He remember the argue between his parents as in that time those home computers where very expensive. From that moment on the IT virus hit him. When his father sold the company, he decided to move my studies to IT.
After graduating, Frederik Van Liere started as an employee for an international company but very soon found out that being an â€˜employeeâ€™ was not his future or goal. Thanks to a very good friend, he received his first position as IT manager at the age of 24. Meanwhile he created a Point-of-Sales system and sold it all over Europe.
Many business challenges came, some stayed and some are gone. Every adventure was a success, not always money wise but he learned from every situation and used the experience in the next one.
Frederik Van Lierde is very proud of the partners he can work with. It is not always easy to find the right people, but he a lucky man. (Even from the â€˜badâ€™ partners he learned something: â€˜how not to do itâ€™) You can only reach your goals when you have the right people to help you!
The journey isnâ€™t finished, many ideas and challenges will come and he will post regularly about it on Twitter, this blog and in many other ways.
