What were your initial years of growing up like? Tell us about your life before starting your corporate journey/venture/initiative.

I have a past like many and like many I experienced physical and emotional abuse at a very young age including emotional abandonment which left its scars!

I was born in France and moved to the U.K and lived there for 13 years. I started to work in a restaurant as a waitress and moved to a manager position.

Around that time I went through a dark place and I decided I was in enough pain to stop staying stuck in the pain. In that moment I made the choice to take ownership for my life over the victimhood state I was in. That was when I started my journey as a coach and I truly really started my  healing process when I learnt about Emotional Intelligence.

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!”

It started with wanting to leave something in this world better than what I started in with and it is still true for me to this day.

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?

For people to love themselves well so they can love others well because there is bravery, grace and possibilities in seeing your own brilliance.

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 leadership today?

I feel we have come a long way and there are still challenges, however from my truth I would say if standing in equity with men is the goal then let’s look at the other jobs men do that no women do, or very rarely not just about leadership places. I feel this equity women want with men nowadays only works one way, which is if it’s a place that has power.

Yet if the job is being a garbage man or construction, how many women scream for equity in those fields?

What’s the most important thing you have learned in your personal life and professional journey? What is your personal motto in life?

The most important thing I have learnt and constantly keep learning is to love me so that I can love others well to love from the truth of who I am.

My motto is: Be the difference that makes the difference.

With your grit and determination, you are making a considerable impact, breaking through, and serving as role models for many budding entrepreneurs. What would you want to say to our young women leaders/audience reading this?

Stay loving of who you are and always do what you love. Somebody said something to me one day that stayed with me since : Among the millions of spermatozoids that run the race to fertilize the egg, you won! Mother nature nurtured you for 9 months and here you are, so you already won at life!
