a journey filled with challenges, inspiration and a whole lot of determination…

Ever since I was a little, I’ve dreamt of freedom, of helping others, and of making a difference in the world.

Having an atypical education journey, with a Bachelor of Commerce, Major in Marketing, some of the top designations in the elite wealth management field and a double certification as a personal and professional in neuro-linguistic programing (NLP), I just couldn’t find ‘my’ place – too ‘creative’ for the corporate world, too ‘business’ for the creative world.

After spending years in the corporate world, I noticed something: too often achievers and leaders return to their old habits, even when presented with the greatest strategies from some of the most prominent coaching program. Despite the motivation and energy everyone had to make changes, to implement a new approach or to implement a profitable idea, these efforts were quickly swept away by the whirlwind of daily activities.

I thought to myself: ‘There has to be a better way.’

And it was at that moment that Strategist Business Development was born.

From there, I developed a different business model to respond to an unfulfilled need in the marketplace. Strategist is a turnkey firm where service-based entrepreneurs and corporations can go from the early creation of ideas to the execution of business strategies.

Strategist is as atypical as I am, from helping people to build a growth mindset, to implement business processes and system for efficiency to integrating the resources necessary and ensure the execution of the marketing and growth strategies.

And this is where I created ‘my’ place. And this is what I want for you.

Today, I get to coach and empower entrepreneurs and corporations to design their business in a way that serves a higher purpose, to structure their businesses to allow for more freedom in their daily lives. I continually invest in my own business and learn from the best to bring you even more value and insight.

I’m grateful that our paths have crossed, I believe that everything happens for a reason. My mission, and my purpose, is ‘to empower people who want to change their lives, who want to go to the next level, with the knowledge, the skills and the tools they need to succeed.’

All it takes is for you to say ‘YES’ to yourself right now!
