Ready to transform your business?

I have also continued to educate myself in different areas of interest, gain practical experience, and invest in different business opportunities, so that I can be sure to understand the issues facing businesses from the ground up.

"By working together, we can ensure that at least nine out of ten businesses succeed."

Startup Toolkit. Why now?

For those of us striving to build a successful business, there’s a deep inner desire for fulfilment driving us forward. We search for our purpose, even if we can’t put our finger on it.

In early 2021, I experienced a career wake-up call that led me to re-evaluate my contribution to the world.

I wanted to know:

What drives me?

What am I passionate about?

What do I want to achieve?

What do I value most?

In my quest to find my WHY, I couldn’t ignore the sobering reality that

9 out of 10 businesses fail

But if the failure rate is as high as 90%, why do people keep starting new businesses?

Three of the most common reasons are:

they want to be their own boss 100%
they want to pursue their passion, or 100%
they are dissatisfied with the corporate world. 100%

This made me reflect on how important it is for people to follow their dreams. This is why I’m passionate about helping others build their businesses with a strong foundation and an unwavering sense of purpose.

My mission is to educate and empower small business entrepreneurs so that together, we can ensure more businesses thrive.

With the right knowledge and support, I believe that:

"9 out of 10 businesses can succeed".

Let’s make it happen.

A little about me

In my spare time, I love nothing more than chilling with my hubby, Kyle and our pup, Allie.  We love cooking, listening to music and travelling.  I also love designing, renovating properties and upcycling furniture. 

Chase your dreams and potential because you are much closer to them than you think.
