What is Lemonade Consulting about?

My name is Jan van Egmond and I believe our money should support who we want to be. Not be a burden to keep you up at night. As a multiple small business owner and artist myself, I know the struggles that creep up on you along the way. During the corona pandemic, I started helping people for free to remedy their financial stress. That’s when I got thinking: what if we can create financial self-confidence to those who need it the most, in a socially responsible way?

Hence, Lemonade Consulting was born. Tailor-made consulting to make you a self reliant pioneer, charged at a fair fee. Whether you are an established professional artist, a Dutch creative freelancer, international expat, or simply started your own business: you deserve the confidence to stay financially fit. So you can focus on what you love doing most.

It gives me great joy and pride to announce Lemonade Consultant’s first intern: Edel Saedi!

“I am a fourth-year L.L.B. student of International & European Law, having my specialization courses in commercial law. I have been given the opportunity to spend my internship period at Lemonade Consulting. Seeing the broad expertise of the company and its prospects makes me eager to learn about and contribute to its development.

I will contribute with my competence within law, where I have a profound interest in tax law, contracts, and corporate law. I believe this internship will reinforce and broaden my knowledge, challenging me within these domains and introducing me to new fields within finance and administration. I’m looking forward to the time ahead and the upcoming tasks.”
