I am a mother of five amazing neurodiverse souls who have been my greatest teachers of all time! I am an immigrant and have lived in Australia for the last thirteen years, with my Zimbabwean husband of 28 years. My background is in teaching, counseling, hypnotherapy, trauma work, and coaching. My first client literally banged my door down, sat on my sofa crying (as I rocked my fifth child who was premature), and convinced me that I was exactly the right person to work with her then pre-suicidal son. I did so, and within weeks he was a different soul, and his pain and struggle dissolved. That filled my soul so overwhelmingly that I was hooked! I coach parents and teens to disrupt generational trauma, heal and nourish themselves, so they can move forward connected to their full potential and power both individually, and collectively.
// What do you love most about being in business?
I love being in business because I can go my own way and not have to shape-shift to fit inside anyone else’s version of what success looks like.
// What do you love most about your role?
I get to co-create with the most extraordinarily brave parents and their incredible kids, positioning them as their most successful selves both individually, and collectively.
// What do you love most about working for yourself?
I love the freedom it allows me. My husband works away 3 / 4 weeks, and so it enables me to build my career around my five neurodiverse children so that I can be a fully present parent for them. I am blessed to have the best of both worlds.
// Lets talk South Australia, What do you love most about working here?
That I can work remotely from anywhere and the views are breathtaking. Do you have a fave place to spend summer/go to for coffee/ go to to relax/ go to for food? Mums Beard Café/Restaurant Owned and run by a South Australian mother in Victor Harbor. It is divine.
// Do you have a favourite SA business that you are passionate about supporting?
Mums Beard Cafe
// What advice would you give other women wanting to start a business?
There is no ‘right time’ to begin a business. I am x3 autoimmune, and started my business with a premature baby and four other children to care for while my husband is away on the mines. My business started minutes each day, those minutes added up to hours, which added up to months, which added up to years! Just start, and celebrate every single step, no matter how small.
