What inspired you to get into entrepreneurship?
I have been an entrepreneur since an early age.
I was interested in so many different things and thought of ways that I could incorporate them into my life. This started with marbles in school. My father traveled a lot and bought me marble and stationery back from wherever he went. In school, many of my friends lusted after these, so I created a marble competition on Friday mornings, which they paid to participate in and they could win the overseas marbles as a prize.
Funny to look back at how at age 8 I was already ready to take on the world.
Fast forward to adulthood and again, I had a few different gigs on at the same time. Catering for Polo events, school events, and party planning. Decoration and designing of interiors for hotels and private clients. Becoming a Senco to help kids on the learning spectrum.
I realized early on that I could not use all my talents in 1 job, and in between raising 4 kids, I created the business that suited me at each timeline.
Coaching and mentoring have been something I have done for decades- in an unofficial capacity. The ability to hold space for another person, so that they get to re-discover their gifts and let go of their shortcomings and intense experiences has been so worthwhile. Seeing a person change incrementally, and then look back over their journey and see how much of their dreams they have fulfilled is so beautiful to see. To have couples reconnect and become intimate after living together for years as roommates brings tears to my eyes. Just yesterday I received a message from a boy I had taught over 15 years ago, thanking me for those few months of one on one support. Telling me it was the catalyst for him going to university and how he has just started his first job. This was one of the autistic boys I worked with in a boarding school. Ultimately my desire to help others and be of service has been the catapult into becoming an entrepreneur. I could never quite fit into a structure, so instead, I created it!
What obstacles have you had to overcome to get where you are today?
There have been many!
Firstly, I am impulsive, when I have an idea, I can get it to fruition in no time. I am not afraid to work hard, but then it might take those around me a bit of time to get to what I have pivoted to. That is when the self-doubt comes in. So over the years, I have learned that I can get a gut instinct to do something and want to act on it immediately, and I check in with myself. Does it make sense for me to do this? Will it be fun for me to do? Will it ultimately give me what I desire most- which for me was to create a business that gives me more time with my kids and supplies me with enough money to live a certain lifestyle?
Mindset, energetics, and working with the subconscious are some of my go-to’s to anchor in what I want and how to stay the course.
Knowing when to pivot and being unashamed to do so is something I learned along the way and has been one of the best things I have learned. Staying in a job, doing something we no longer align with, because we set it up, can create resentment- and everyone feels that! So the business will not perform as well, energetics are massively important.
What message of hope do you have for upcoming entrepreneurs?
Start! Take a small step toward the direction you want to go in EVERY DAY! This may mean planning some time to brain dump, network, or reprogram your subconscious. Visualize where you want to be and keep this in mind, see it, taste it, hear it, feel it, experience it! Where you put your attention grows! So instead of all the obstacles, start seeing where this is happening FOR you! Get a coach/mentor who can mirror back to you, and help you with your blind spots.

What is your definition of a pretty woman who hustles?
“A pretty woman who hustles is a force to be reckoned with. She embodies a unique blend of inner strength, resilience, intelligence, and energetics combined with a genuine passion for what she does. Her WHY is very defined and she knows what her end goal is. She is not defined by her physical appearance but rather by her unwavering grace, determination, entrepreneurial spirit, and the impact she creates in her field. She fearlessly takes on challenges, embraces risks, and has an attitude of play and pleasure towards work, so that her goals never feel unobtainable, all while maintaining her authenticity, sovereignty, grace, and pleasure. A pretty woman who hustles not only excels in her endeavors but also uplifts and inspires others along the way. She is a trailblazer, a visionary, a mentor to many, and helps create the ripple effect to the endless possibilities that exist when passion, a soul-led why, energetics, work, play, and beauty converge.”
