What were your initial years of growing up like? Tell us about your life before the venture/ corporate journey?
I went from a stay-at-home mother who was confused & had a loss of self-Identity, to now an entrepreneur. I rebuilt my confidence as a Real Estate Consultant, built a furnishing business from scratch & exited successfully after 10 years.
From struggling with Body Image & Health issues to taking ownership & responsibility to put my health back in order, I shed 10kg & 16cm off my waistline & ran 2 Half Marathon at the age of 44.
From being stuck in Fear & Self-doubt to breaking my limiting beliefs and becoming an Author & Transformational Speaker, I wrote my first book “Women of Courage, Breaking the Fear Barrier” and launched it through a book tour with a goal of 25 public speaking engagements within 9 months in 5 countries, overcoming my extreme fear of Public Speaking.
My challenging experiences in childhood, adolescence, motherhood & entrepreneurship compelled me to start the Connecting Mothers support group, founding the social enterprise, Class Living, the community, Women of Courage Asia & HER Courage BizNetwork where I immerse my life to inspire & empower women to renew their minds & break their self-sabotaging behavioral patterns, to awaken their courage & reclaim their confidence to live their dreams and a life of CLASS: Courage, Love, Authenticity, Stewardship & Significance, with my Courage Coaching & Mentoring.
Today with my team, I’m on a mission to create highly tailored transformational personal & leadership development programs through Class Living, so that every woman is equipped with tools to succeed in their personal lives, as well as their businesses.
Tell us something about your initiative or current role. What is it about, and what impact are you trying to make?
We recognise a woman’s value and purpose by celebrating her voice, visibility and journey, turning the impossible into I’M possible. We help women to awaken their courage, break barriers of fear & ignite their power of Influence in leadership.
We provide a safe environment for women to be vulnerable, to share, learn and experience transformation & breakthroughs through coaching, mentoring and community support.
We are also passionate about supporting female entrepreneurs through collaboration, community building and developing courageous & transformational women leaders with a heart to serve the community and create an impact through their business.
Your journey and your vision are very inspiring, but are there any achievements or accomplishments you would like to mention?
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?

What would you want to say to our young women leaders/audience reading this?
Taking personal responsibility for how we live our lives takes courage as we face different challenges in life, and a woman gains wisdom, strength and confidence from every experience.
Breaking every fear barrier along the way, we are amazed by the power of courage and strength we have within us to do things we think are not possible.
If women awaken to the knowledge and understanding of our purpose in life, take courage to overcome self-doubt and fear, restore our confidence, and unleash the power within us, imagine the influence and change we could bring for the good of mankind. We exceed the expectation of our capacity and strength, to become a leader or a role model and inspiration in our sphere of influence!
It is my desire and dream to inspire women to live a life of courage, purpose and freedom, and witness the awakening and gathering of the women of courage, to make a difference, to be a force of influence, purely and simply for the benefit of all.
Extraordinary is a matter of perspective. You are not defined by society. YOU are a woman of courage and you have the power within to break every fear barrier! Your life is in fact an extraordinary story to share, to inspire, to empower and to influence!
“Awareness empowers you with a choice. Courage is a choice to take intentional action to create the change you want to see in your life. Your life is a journey not a quick trip.”
“When you awaken the courage of a woman, you ignite her power of influence”
