Please share with us an experience that almost destroyed you, an experience that almost cost you your life, however you decided to go out there and Fetch Your Life:
One of the most trying times of my life was when I left a relationship that was becoming toxic and went to go and live with my then “best friend” only to be betrayed by her as well. One of those eye-opening moments that left me stripped bare and forced me to seek love, acceptance, and happiness within myself.
How has this experience impacted your life?
It was at this time that I started meditating and educating myself about the brain, how it stores memories and childhood traumas and how we as adults can still change the state of our being by shifting our identity and choosing a better life path for ourselves. I am a happier and wiser, I don’t sweat the small stuff because I now have a better understanding that human potential is nearly limitless and that I can do and be whoever I want to in this world because my past doesn’t define me.
Do you think that had it not been for this experience you would have become the person you are?
Honestly, I’m not sure where I would have been had it not been for this experience. I’m in such a better place and believe that everything really does happen for a reason. What advise do you have for someone that has been through the same experience? Go within, seek God. No man or women on this earth can give you your heart desires. You are the most important project in this life, keep working on yourself.
What does women Empowerment mean to you?
Giving Women the ability and freedom to choose who, where, when and how they want to show up in the world. Tell us about your business or project? I run a full-service Business Development Agency called Small Business Runway. We help entrepreneurs with practical tips and tools to grow their businesses through consulting, business education and Digital Marketing services.
What are some of your achievements?
I’ve successfully hosted 5 SMME events in the past 2 years that have positively impacted over 5000 through networking, skills training, motivation, and education.
What should we expect from you in 2021? I’m launching an exciting product that will be a game changer for small business owners, look out for announcements coming in November. What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind? I want to leave behind a legacy of entrepreneurs who who changed the small business ecosystem and found African solutions to our African problems.
