How It All Came to Be

Finding the route...

I have always been someone who felt strongly about many topics, and I have a clear opinion on most things.

However, I envied those who knew, without a doubt, that they had found their calling!

I needed to pin down what would keep me motivated, engaged, and profitable!

 

Like many, I began my first business, out of necessity, based on a skillset.

I soon found myself dreading the concept of marketing my generic services to 'anyone', merely for profit.

Mentors and friends kept saying to “do what you love!”

For the longest time, my stock answer was, “I don’t know what I love to do!”

Where to begin...

I began my journey as an entrepreneur and business-owner, after 20 years in admin, project initiation, and health and social care, across a broad spectrum of settings.

I had 3 goals in mind.

~ Provide for my family

~ To be free to use my experiences, skills, and passion

~ To be part of bringing about freedom and change in the lives of those who felt imprisoned by their circumstances

Digging deep...

As a person of faith, I knew to eventually come to a place of being ready to wait and listen.

At last, through many a 'serendipitous' circumstance, I came to realise what I love to do!

Better yet, I discovered there were many who need what I love to do!

What brings me joy, is identifying those who have chosen to make a difference through what they do, and NOT just a profit.

What truly excites me, is learning what they want to do and how they want to do it, and playing a part in making that happen in the BEST possible way for maximum impact!

The Backdrop...

I was born and raised in Zimbabwe, Africa.

That explains my dodgy accent, and some of my mannerisms.

It is also the backbone of who I am, and in defining values and beliefs.

I first arrived in the UK nearly 18 years ago, and have chosen to build a life for my two daughters and I, in Northamptonshire.

We are proud to be part of a wonderful community!

We live with another 2 generations of family-women, and a semi-crazed rescue dog.

Our neighbours once enjoyed a quiet street.

No longer!

Taking off...

With that as THE GOAL, I no longer need to strive to find my own singular cause.

Instead, I am able to support a plethora of causes that I know I can help make a difference in!

I love to see my clients save time and effort, knowing they can concentrate on what THEY are passionate about! 

 

I truly believe that:

Each and EVERY HUMAN on this planet has has intrinsic worth; 

Each soul, a need to be heard and understood; 

Every one of us, a place to call home and a community of support.
