As a woman turning 50 years of age I knew there was more to life than working a 9 to 5 job for someone else. I had a dream within me – to be a professional speaker and trainer. However fear, doubt, lack of confidence and the necessity for a regular income, had prevented me from pursuing my dream. I kept making ‘when’ excused like “when the kids are older” or “when I have more time” or “when I have more money” and the when excuses continued.

I realised that that there would always be ‘when excuses’ and now was the time to pursue my dream because if I didn’t do it now, I would continue to procrastinate and would always regret never having tried. WHEN had become NOW!

Follow my journey as I made the decision to begin my own business, how I got started and the many challenges and lessons I learnt along the way.
