“I originally studied architecture but towards the end of my studies I discovered the internet and then there was no turning back. I finished my studies so I am a licensed architect who has never designed a real house! Instead I became an information architect. My love for all things digital was so strong that even after becoming a project manager in a software company, I decided to cement the love with a degree in computer science. But before I could finish my degree, I had been promoted to a CEO and was working around the clock to turn around a software company. I realised that building businesses was my zone of genius – I loved everything about it, the start-up, the growth as well as the turnaround. So with a full-time job I also decided to do an MBA.
After 10 years being a CEO it was time to start my own business. I had always wanted to be my own boss but I was waiting for that super duper business idea that never seemed to come. Then in 2010 I got sick and couldn’t work for 7 months. After being sick for so long I just couldn’t imagine ever going back to working for someone else. My sickness was a blessing in disguise and I finally founded my company. I started with traditional business consulting but then after six months I restarted my business with online business consulting. Within a year I was making six figures and helping thousands of entrepreneurs all over the world to turn their passion into a profitable business.“
