My Magnus Opus
Inspired Living Revolution
I am hoping to usher in a new era where people no longer operate from a sense of fear, but from a place of inspiration. I would like to ignite this desire in as many people as possible so that we can make it a world-wide phenomenon.
With the workshops and training I do I am inspired to help more and more people connect to the genius within, to share our gifts without apology or reticence, but with a sense of delight and abandon, that needs no courage. To lift the injunctions of our past so that we can really, really LIVE from the bottom of our hearts.
I have tried many things, some worked, and some didn’t. Some worked better than others. I have studied all my life to find the things that make the difference that makes the difference. These I will share with you. I am not saying I have all the answers, but I have a lot of experience and really good ways to help you come up with the solutions you seek to get the outcomes you desire.
I took a two-year sabbatical to develop the concepts, training, workshops, interventions and surveys.
More about me
I am an inveterate explorer, un-rehabilitated workshop junkie, life-artist, dancer and avid lover of travelling, books and shoes, not necessarily in that order. I have also drunk enough tea to sink the Titanic, and lately coffee as though it is soon going to go out of fashion.
I believe I am on the better side of half a century and have more than enough experience in just about anything you care to mention. I have dabbled in so many things; some favourable, some better forgiven or forgotten.
My biggest failing at this stage of my life is my sweet tooth and chocolate in particular (dark Belgian chocolate is my favorite). I have my urges pretty well under control… most of the time.
My only addiction is watching videos, and I have to set limits here or my eyes would seize up. Once I get going on a juicy or fascinating series, it is difficult to stop. Thank goodness the video shop closes at 9 pm and I do not have an online account or I would be in serious trouble.
My challenges are that I am an idealist and strive for perfection. I am impatient. I want everything and I want it now! I must admit, some would not agree with this.
I have dabbled in various fields and made a study of some like Chinese Medicine, Shiatsu, Reiki, Swedish Massage. I practice yoga, breath-work, meditation, and mindfulness. I love walking, hiking, being in nature.
I am an artist and have exhibited in a number of places from Cape Town to Pretoria in South Africa (not abroad yet). My artwork has been used as illustrations in books and on book covers.
I have, inter alia, taught art to disadvantaged learners at the Sophumelele School in Phillippi (a suburb of Cape Town), taken part in Toastmasters Junior Leader Development, trained entrepreneurial skills to school children in my free time, taught Life Skills as part of an enrichment program, and been a model at a fashion show to raise funds for the Sunshine Foundation.
I took a two year sabbatical to create the Genius Within concept and bring it to fruition.
I have worked in, for, and with Government, a number of Corporate Companies, Non-Profits and Small Business Organisations in many diverse roles. I have worked in and/or managed Marketing (most aspects), Admin, Finances (most aspects), IT (most aspects), Fund Raising, HR, Stock Control, Logistics, Training, and others that I can’t even remember. I have spent time in the Mining, Insurance, and the Fuel industries.
I have a 4cm thick file of certificates from computer programming to graphic design, from Coaching, and various Massage Therapies to Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Hypnotherapy. My interests have always been broad.
Why do I want to do this?
As you know we spend more than half our waking day at work, in transit, or preparing for work. Job satisfaction affects all aspects of our lives. I would love to help more people do what they love and love what they do. The more satisfaction we get from our job, vocation or profession, the more it affects all else. The happier we are at work, the happier we can be at home and the more it ripples out to everyone we come in contact with.
What effect will it have?
We are all blessed with certain gifts and talents. I would love to help you find and cultivate these in order to give greater expression to them and transform your dreams into reality.
Transform the individual and you will transform your business
Organization change starts from the top and filters down, individual by individual. We would like to transform the internal issues that impact the morale and well-being of each person working in the organization, that in turn affects the bottom line.
