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

Reflecting on my early years, my journey into the realm of entrepreneurship began at a pivotal moment in my life. As a single mother at the age of 30, I embarked on my first business venture with a former boss. However, I quickly realized that partnerships were not my forte. With determination and a vision solely my own, I made an offer he couldn’t refuse, and I bought him out. This bold move marked the beginning of my career as a serial entrepreneur, propelling my business to seven-figure success.

Seeking new horizons, I retired and relocated to Thailand with my husband and our daughter. Yet, retirement did not satisfy my deep-seated desire to create a meaningful impact. I was compelled to return to the entrepreneurial world, this time with a mission to empower women. Drawing from my own experiences as a single mother for seven years, I understand the challenges women face. Inspired by my journey, I am devoted to guiding extraordinary women towards building successful online businesses that offer the freedom and fulfilling lives they truly deserve. Through my signature programs, I provide the tools and mentorship needed to transform their aspirations into reality, promoting a life of freedom and ease.

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!”

The spark that ignited my entrepreneurial journey was born out of necessity and a fierce desire for independence. As a single mother at 30, the idea to start my own business came not just from ambition but from the urgent need to forge a stable and prosperous future for myself and my daughter. My initial venture with my then-boss was a stepping stone, but it quickly became clear that to truly thrive, I needed to strike out on my own. The motivation to say “YES, go for it!” was fueled by my realization that partnerships were restrictive rather than liberating for me. This pivotal decision—to buy out my business partner and claim full ownership—catapulted my first venture into the seven-figure realm.

What truly propelled me forward, however, was the vision of creating a scalable, impactful business that could transform lives. After achieving my own financial and personal freedom, I was drawn back from retirement by a compelling desire to help other women achieve the same. The drive to lead and empower women worldwide, enabling them to build successful businesses that afford them the lives of freedom and ease they deserve, became my overarching mission. This deep-seated purpose is what motivated me to launch my signature programs and dedicate my expertise to fostering a global community of empowered, soul-inspired queens shaping their destinies through entrepreneurship.

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?

Certainly! My vision for change in the world is to empower young women entrepreneurs to reach their full potential without facing barriers. I dream of a business world where female entrepreneurship is not just celebrated but expected. This means providing equal access to resources, mentorship, and networks to help turn their innovative ideas into successful businesses.

I would love an opportunity to be involved in a venture to mentor and support these aspiring women, helping them build businesses that reshape the world. Together, we can foster a legacy of strong, independent women who live out their dreams confidently.

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?

As an entrepreneur leading women, I see women’s leadership today as a powerful force driving innovation, creativity, and resilience in business. Women are not just breaking through glass ceilings; they are shattering barriers and carving out spaces at the helm of their own ventures, redefining what it means to be a leader.

What inspires me most is witnessing women take charge of their destinies, fearlessly pursuing their entrepreneurial dreams, and navigating the challenges with unwavering determination. Women leaders in business bring a unique set of strengths to the table – from their ability to empathize and communicate effectively to their strategic vision and collaborative approach.

I believe that women’s leadership is not just about reaching the top of the pyramid but also about creating meaningful impact, fostering inclusive cultures, and uplifting other women along the way. Today, women entrepreneurs are not waiting for opportunities; they are creating them, building successful businesses, and paving the way for future generations of female leaders.

As an advocate for women’s empowerment in business, I am committed to providing mentorship, resources, and support networks that empower women to lead authentically, achieve their goals, and thrive in their entrepreneurial journeys. Together, we are reshaping the landscape of women’s leadership, one successful business at a time, and inspiring a new era of female-driven innovation and prosperity.

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

In both my personal life and professional journey, I’ve embraced two invaluable lessons that have shaped my success: the significance of deep inner work and the pivotal role of confidence and self-belief, particularly for female entrepreneurs.

My journey has taught me that investing in my personal growth, understanding my strengths and limitations, and continuously working on myself are fundamental to overcoming challenges and achieving sustainable success. Confidence and self-belief, coupled with a growth mindset, have been my guiding lights in navigating male-dominated industries, building businesses from the ground up, and venturing into new territories with courage and determination.

My personal motto encapsulates this ethos: “If someone else can do it, I can do it better.” This motto has been instrumental in propelling me forward, whether in the offline world where traditional barriers existed or in the online realm where new opportunities awaited. It has fueled my drive to excel, innovate, and lead, empowering me to carve a path of success as a business mentor and advocate for women’s empowerment in entrepreneurship.

By embodying this motto, I’ve not only achieved personal milestones but also inspired others to embrace their potential, break through limitations, and create impactful change in their lives and businesses. It’s a motto that continues to guide me as I strive to make a difference, one empowered entrepreneur at a time.

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?

To all the young women leaders and budding entrepreneurs reading this, I want to convey a message of empowerment, resilience, and unwavering belief in your potential.

First and foremost, believe in yourself and your abilities. Know that you have the grit, determination, and resilience to overcome any obstacle that comes your way. Embrace challenges as opportunities for growth and learning, and never let fear hold you back from pursuing your dreams.

Secondly, surround yourself with a supportive community of mentors, peers, and allies who uplift and inspire you. Seek out guidance, ask questions, and never be afraid to seek help when needed. Collaboration and collective wisdom are powerful tools on your journey to success.

Lastly, remember that your journey is unique, and there’s no one-size-fits-all path to success. Stay true to your values, vision, and passion. Let your authenticity shine through in everything you do, and use your voice to advocate for causes that matter to you.

You are capable of achieving greatness and making a significant impact in the world. Embrace your role as a leader, be fearless in your pursuits, and never underestimate the power of your dreams. You are the architects of your destiny, and the world is waiting for your unique contributions. Go forth with courage, purpose, and determination, and let nothing dim your light.

Together, we are shaping a future where women’s leadership is celebrated, respected, and valued. Let’s inspire, uplift, and empower each other to reach new heights of success and create a world where every woman’s voice is heard and honored.
