What inspires you?

MY GOD inspires me daily to be more productive, expand my ways of thinking and shift my gears to achieve more for the greater good of mankind. I seek ways in which I can SERVE HUMANITY and coaching is that perfect ‘ikigai’ that has cemented my passion, my calling, my life and my light.

What relationship has been most influential in your life?

My relationship that has influenced me most is that of my parents. They moulded me to think and evaluate what it was I wanted in life, they became my guided lamp post, shining their light on the paths that I took. Additionally, they supported my choice of study and were exhilarated when I graduated with my Ph.D, the highest accolade achieved among my brothers and sisters. A BIG Thank you to my parents.
