Just like many of you, I have been in this situation always procrastinating and never seeming to make the next move.

Let me tell you a little bit about myself, I grew up in KZN, a very family ordinated person. I had my family, work was good, but I kept myself in a bubble (Comfort Zone) and would never attempt to get out of it.

I always knew deep down inside of me that I was not living my full potential. Tragically my Dad passed away and that made me realize that life is short. My procrastination was keeping me from living my purpose!

With the support of my family and friends I took smalls steps into changing my life. I finally got out of my comfort zone and realized that I want to help people who are stuck.

I studied and qualified as a Life Coach & NLP Practitioner

Life looks a whole lot better when you have the tools to keep you motivated.
