About Inge and the Academy

Mission of Inge Rock Academy

“It is our mission to contribute to the development of people and organizations in a way most people are still unaware of. By touching their hearts, we can show them who and what they can become. To spread this message all over the world we use our voice, day after day. As teachers, coaches and authors we can guide people toward their true destination and goals. I do everything within my power to lead by example.”

The beginning

Inge started her coaching business in the old house of her grandparents in Tienen, Belgium, her hometown. In the front there was a retail space which had been vacant for years. With sponges, cloths and many bottles filled with degreaser she was able to transform the dusty room into her own coaching practice.
Within a year the business became literally too small and Inge knew she needed to expand. Her schedule was full of coaching appointments. People came all the way from Bruges, Eindhoven and Maasmechelen to receive coaching by Inge in Tienen. Especially enterpreneurs, artists and future coaches found their way to the Vierde Lansierslaan. The Inge Rock Academy came into being.

I would like that every child has a subject called “thinking” in their school. Then our children would be able to build their lives and they would turn the challenges of everyday life into opportunities.

Entrepreneur pur sang

You know, that pure entrepreneurial blood. Wanting more, wanting better, more efficient, generating more and more sales. It is the drive of every entrepreneur. Inge has always been an entrepreneur. As a child she already had entrepreneurial blood in her veins. Selling toilet paper for the boyscouts, concert tickets for the youth choir, raffle tickets for school. She loved this. She would go door to door selling. Inge has always loved people and has unconsciously always taken the lead: leader of the boyscouts, leader of the choir, leader in her class, leader in her own perfumery store, leader in her academy. Without knowing it, she was not only an entrepreneur, but also a very talented teacher and manager. Inge has always had and continues to have a positive impact on people.

A turning point

Just like everyone, Inge had to face a lot of setbacks and life wasn’t always all that wonderful. Her parents divorced when she was fourteen, her marriage stranded, her mother died at the age of fifty-six, fourteen years ago her father suddenly died from a stroke…
But Inge held her ground. She had to persist. She refused to be subdued by anybody and decided to rebuild her self-esteem, stronger than ever. With the support of her partner, her children and her mentor Paul Martinelli, she not only built her private life up from scratch but also her business. An academy which offers solutions for the needs of many entrepreneurs and coaches.
