What is your biggest success?

For the Consulting arm it has definately to be the one private practice that was operating at a loss for 9 consecutive financial years. In less than 6 months, our turn-around strategies proved to be working and within the first year, profitability followed by positive cash flows were evident. On the coaching front, I was the only coach out of 14 who achieved a 100% throughout rate at one of the business schools in South Africa, for an entrepreneurship program that had participants from over 14 African countries.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

My biggest hurdle by far is being consistent with sticking to my niche, which are executives. While I enjoy and produce outstanding results in executive coaching, I find that my soul gets more fulfilled in coaching underserved and marginalized population. Owing to my passion of business and life coaching in rural areas, I went as far as being recognized as one of the Top 200 Young South Africans by the Mail & Guardian in 2021, under the Rural Projects category. Having said that, 2024 has seen me gaining more executive clients as I am being intentional about my business model.
