What were your initial years of growing up like? Tell us about your life before the venture/ corporate journey?
I grew up in a single parent family which always struggled for money. Going into nursing was my saviour as it taught me so much about myself. Helping my clients with their Personal Brand raises their levels of confidence and clarity that I wish had been open to me years earlier.
Every industry that is now a large-scale, top-notch business once started as a small idea in the minds of entrepreneurs. What was that idea or motivation that made you start your business/initiative? What motivated you within to say “YES, go for it!”
That gut feeling of excitement when I realised I could help others become their BEST SELVES
Tell us something about your initiative or current role. What is it about, and what impact are you trying to make?
Helping small businesses become visible in a massive market by showing what is UNIQUE about them and how they can help in ways others can’t.
Your journey and your vision are very inspiring, but are there any achievements or accomplishments you would like to mention?
I have Dyslexia and ADHD Traits and have not found it an easy journey, but having lots of121 clients and 3 online courses that can help people at their own speed is a great achievement
Would you like to share with our young budding women entrepreneurs the change you would like to see in the world if given an opportunity?
That individuality is celebrated and that each of us can become our BEST SELVES
Women are a growing force in the workplaces worldwide, standing shoulder to shoulder with their male counterparts. There are cracks in glass ceilings everywhere, with many women breaking through to carve out a space right at the top of the pyramid. What are your thoughts about women’s leadership today?
Women make great leaders once they realise they can, so often they suffer from imposter syndrome or anxiety, and their confidence needs to be stimulated and celebrated
