The day everything almost fell apart:
Fall apart could be too grave, but I do remember vividly as a young fired up entrepreneur. Big ideas, dreams and aspirations. I believed I could take over the world (which I do aim to do) but back then it wasn’t for the right reason. It was about money, money, money. I had always been fascinated by the notion of being around successful people. I would always plug in with my mantra “fake it until I make it” until one day I met one of my several mentors who helped steer me into purpose.
From that day, I realigned and made it my mission to ensure every young entrepreneur gets adequate tools and exposure to succeed. Trained as a business coach, travel extensively locally and internationally meeting game changers and shakers. I have several mentors for every area of my life and I mentor over 150 young minds. That for me is purpose.
