Biography

I am a wife, mother, teacher, entrepreneur, author, and speaker.

History: I grew up in a home with a family-owned electrical and hardware business (which started out as a grocery store). From an early age I learnt about working hard, business, solving problems, teamwork, sacrifice and commitment. My parents taught me that I could only succeed and that no problem is unsolvable. Failure was never even mentioned. So, I grew up believing that I could accomplish anything.

Businesswoman: I worked in the family business with my parents and siblings ever since I can remember. When I finished school, I studied business management and did a course in effective communication, human relations and public speaking (both part-time) while running the electrical workshop. I also became the buyer of the electronics department. In later years I became the financial director. After getting married and having 3 children, in 2005, at the age of 35 I resigned to be at home with my children, with one of them having many health challenges at the time.

Wife, Mother & Teacher: Being at home, I ploughed all my energy into my family, researching on health, which brought me to lifestyle changes for my whole family. Then, in 2012, we took our children out of the private school they were in and began our journey home schooling them. Thank God for the teaching gift I inherited from my father! I have documented most of the wisdom I have learnt over the years on relationships, raising children, health & wholeness, home schooling, finances, marriage and life.

Author, Blogger, Speaker & Entrepreneur: In 2006 my husband and I started our own property development family business which he now runs. Currently I am an author and blogger, writing books on home schooling, health & wholeness, personal development, & Biblical research. I have spoken at workshops, small groups and events on my life experiences, raising children, health and wholeness.

Passion & Life Purpose: I want to share my victories with every person I encounter. No one should ever live without the hope of a better future. I use my books, blog, public speaking and social media to increase my influence in this regard.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
My second child had many health challenges in his first 3 years of life. When he was about 1 years old I began to question things. I knew that this was not God's will for his life. So, I began researching (with prayer) and developed a passion for health. I decided that my whole family should also get on the health journey, so I began implementing changes in the way I prepared meals for my family. When people heard my story, they began asking me for health advice for their own health challenges. The book is birthed out of my research and experiences. I love helping people and solving problems.
When did you first start writing?
2018
