Let’s start with the timeless 60 seconds ‘elevator pitch’, what’s yours?

I assist teens, adults and families to heal, repair and grow. I also coach individuals and groups to find their full potential.

Modus Operandi: I integrate concepts from diverse fields to assist clients to simplify problems. Then my client and I work together towards strengths and solutions. We do it by focusing on the positives more. The therapy goal is not just to get better, but to thrive constantly.

At one point or another, it is inevitable that challenges will pop up in business. What’s your approach to overcoming challenges?

My 3 strategies to overcome challenges are:

  1. Constant learning from books, people, situations, and mentors.
  2. Collaborating with peers to stay inspired and energised.
  3. Remembering the bigger purpose of my work and not getting bogged down by everyday challenges.
Sales and marketing are two very important, but different, functions within a business. What is your number one sales tip?

Customer service and clear communication are the two things that have worked for me. Though I have relied on social media, it has never been that important. Word of mouth is the most important sales tip that I can give anyone. A happy customer is still my biggest marketing ambassador.

What is your favourite business tool or system?

My business tool is to think about people much, much before I think about the business.

It is important to celebrate your achievements, particularly during the difficult times. How do you celebrate your achievements?

I celebrate achievements by thanking the universe. Gratitude keeps me grounded and happy. Once that’s done, I practice self-care and indulge myself.

Being in business is like an education in itself, what are the three most important lessons you’ve learned in your business?

Lesson 1: Fail, fall, rise again.​

Lesson 2: Learn, learn, learn (all the time & from everybody).

Lesson 3: Take feedback objectively (this one was the hardest lesson to learn.

What business-related book or podcast has inspired you the most?
