SO, THIS IS MY STORY… At the age of 16 and living in Joburg SA, I was taken out of high school, (it was a cool thing back in the day… leaving school that is). I went off to college in Port Elizabeth SA. On arrival, my mom conveniently forgot to register for the interior design course I thought would be a good fit and sounded great! Forced into hairdressing school because every other class was fully booked … I never ever had the inclination of becoming a hairdresser… EVER!!! So, I reluctantly signed up for the course as I was told by my parents that they would open a salon for me and I figured “Yaaaay, I am going to be rich and have my own business” lol. Well, I am still waiting for the salon they were going to open for me. I am however grateful for the skill I learned and always had hairdressing to fall back on. Deep down I knew that this is not what I wanted to do but, what else was available to me? Not having a matric or any other business skill besides hairdressing… my options were limited!!! Besides, I recently became a single parent teenage mom to a beautiful girl. At the age of 21 I was told by a client that with my personality, I should go into sales… once again, clueless as to what was required of me in sales, he set up an interview with an office automation company and two hours later, my nerves were shot but I was offered the job on the spot with Minolta SA. I thought this is it… it is exactly what I needed with an opportunity to earn the big bucks! I did well and continuously achieved the targets set out for me and was rewarded with incentive trips, I traveled the world because of it and loved that about the position. Thinking to myself, why Am I making someone else money when I could be making money for myself, I left the industry and went on to own a chain of hair salons for about 6 consecutive years. Unfortunately, hairdressing was not my passion although, if I may say so myself, I was an exceptionally good stylist and had clients follow me wherever I went. In this time, I married and divorced and had two more beautiful loving children... making that a total of 3 children. Still…searching for that “one-thing” that I loved with a sense of fulfillment. I went into the corporate world, I tried sales and sales management, recruitment, personal assistant, and back to hairdressing, you name it, I have probably tried it!!! Gosh, I was so confused as to what I was supposed to be doing with my life. God says in His word that He had a plan for me… I never knew what the plan was, but I desperately wanted to believe that something great was going to happen. I also learned that “a confused mind cannot take action” Wow, that was a revelation to me!!! I understood part of the reason why I did not excel with my career choices…. I really did not know what I was truly passionate about. I mean I always thought that people were my passion and as long as I had people around me, I would be happy right? Well…. This is true to a certain degree, but we all know that it was not what I needed. I realized that I always had people around me, yet I still did not feel a sense of fulfillment and needed clarity… I needed a GPS for life, a path to follow!!! You know it is funny how the universe works… I went on a journey of self-discovery and started asking God to send the right people to cross my path. People who can make a difference in my life and where I could make a difference in theirs. I was not sure how this was going to happen or how it was going to work… but I BELIEVED that it would. I am here to tell you that your life can be different… I struggled to succeed in life for years not understanding why I could not quite “make it” if you know what I mean? I had my bursts of little wins which were just enough to convince myself that I was happy with what I was doing at the time. I finally got my answers and discovered my top 5 passions – Helping people around the world is my #1 PASSION!!!
I am now on an amazing journey with a community of like-minded people, growing daily, feeling a sense of belonging … being part of something bigger and helping others along the way… I get to travel and play golf with my partner Juan which I thoroughly enjoy but, not particularly good at…. yet, lol… I could not be happier!!!
