What is your biggest success?

Being the first person in my family to be a successful, woman entrepreneur. Having to learn everything from scratch with no mentors and no business help from parents as they had very limited knowledge, however, they did show me a good example of using my education, talent and skills to achieve success... I pushed my foot in the door while raising kids, getting my family out of the Cape flats, where there is alot of exposure to gangsterism and drugs. Continued growth of the business, using influence to shape the minds of South Africans and contribute towards their continued education and financial empowerment. I influence, empower and impact many individuals within various roles. Daring to dream and managing to start a multi pronged business that is fully aligned with Momentum's vision, support underprivileged communities while still making financial business sense. Backed by years of experience in the financial industry, Janine Horn founded the DragonFly Institute in 2023. As a lifelong activist and creator of change in the world of Financial Advisory and Literacy, her areas of expertise include youth development, business development, and refining business practices, With a passion for educating others on economic abuse, economic gender equality, and women’s wellness, the movement has not only sparked change but a determination to see it through.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

Persevering despite constant pain due to my disability as well as paying for ongoing treatment, which ate up most of m finances. Maintaining a positive attitude and grit without which I could never have pulled of your vision. Imposter Syndrome
