Tell us about your entrepreneurial product or service.
I'm a Customer Service Experience Practitioner and a Certified John Maxwell Coach Trainer & Speaker living in the beautiful Caribbean. I've served in the Travel & Tourism industry for many years.

I Coach, Train and Mentor individuals, teams and business owners in how to move from where they are to where they really want to be through various customer service delivery and leadership programmes.

As well as travel to the relevant countries to conduct my programmes, I offer virtual Coaching, Mastermind Groups and Training. These programmes are specifically designed in a way to continue to serve the individual or organisations long after I've stopped working with them.

I help you put legs to the dream that's in your heart.

What inspired you to launch your business idea?
As I sat in my living room a few years ago picking up the pieces of a redundancy and looking through the paper to find my next job, I realised that I couldn't go back out into the rat race of the ‘corporate world' where although I was working for a large organisation, my impact and influence was so limited. I had a burning desire to develop and empower people to live their best life and knew this would only become a reality if I could plan my own time and set my own perimeters.

What problem does your business or organization solve?
The biggest issue for most of my clients and people I meet is that they are in some way stuck in their lives, be it stuck in a dead end job, career, relationship or financially. They know what they want to do but don't know how to get there. My company, through various coaching tools creates the environment for them to see the possibilities, reinvent themselves and make empowering decisions to reach their short and long term goals.

What has been your biggest challenge as an entrepreneur and how are you working to overcome it?
Juggling my family, business, kids, house chores, relationships, leisure etc.

I don't think about managing time. I manage my energy and guard my time. I spend time only doing the things I believe I'm supposed to be doing at any given time so I can give each thing my maximum passion and attention.

Have I fully mastered it? Maybe not because life is not linear but I've definitely grown tremendously over the years in this area and believe I can use what I've learned to help others.

Give us one word that people might use to describe you.
Effective

How has Project Eve helped you and/or your business?
I believe this project will give me a wider audience of women that I can learn from and add value to.
