My Story

From a very young age I have always believed success is in the mind set. That is why 8 years ago I decided to do something that many people said to me that I was flogging a dead horse. Many people did not believe that I could make it work and I was ridiculed by my peers. So how did I get here?

I am a Successful Home Business Entrepreneur, a Healthcare Professional, a wife and mother of two.

I have built my successful business part-time for the last 8 years and I am still enjoying the journey. As  a Healthcare Professional, it has always been a tradition that you stick to the field and only advance in that field. So for me it was not easy telling my husband and relatives that I wanted to start a Home Based business. The truth of the matter is they thought I was utterly crazy. They knew how busy I was and I was hardly at home for me to start a Home Based Business.

When I started my Business I was working full time and I hardly had time for my husband and children as I was stuck in the rat race. I was stressed and wondered what else I could do to reduce my hours at work. I was unhappy despite earning what others might have considered a good income. For me it was becoming a chore going to work, job satisfaction was at its lowest, it became difficult to have quality time with my family even when I had a little time to spare.

I was looking for something else that I was not just passionate about, but I realised that Medicine was all I knew. It was not until I bumped into this lady at a friend’s place who was so passionate about her business and how much she was earning mainly working from home. I wanted her to tell me more about her business as she had hinted that I could do the same if I wanted to. I booked an appointment to get to know about it and by the time we had had a glass of champagne I could see myself going into partnership with her. I also found out that I could use this business to empower other women financially. See I grew up in a culture where the man is the bread winner and dictates what happens in the home. I know by empowering a woman, you empower a family and a community.

Over the last 8 years I can confidently say that  I have helped empower a lot of women by teaching them how to make money from the comfort of their own homes. Not compromising on their time with family or other activities in their lives. My life has changed from working to pay the bills to financial sufficiency, I have more time with my family, I can afford to have more holidays and now I split my Healthcare work and my business 50/50.Who says you cannot have it all? I have!!
