How long have you been a Boston Business Women’s Member?

Less than a year

Were you born and raised in Boston? If not, what brought you here?

I am originally from South Africa. I met my husband on a beach in Portugal while working in London. Six months later I transferred to NYC where I worked as an FX money broker on Wall Street until we got married a year later and I then moved up to Boston as my husband was born and raised here. I've been in Boston for the last 9 years.

Tell us more about your job or company and what led you to your career?

I worked with a coach in London, while working as an FX money broker. I was deeply unsatisfied with my job and a few other things in my life. My coach changed my life and through the wisdom and tools I gained in my own coaching sessions I did a 180 on my career. Moved to the US, quit my Wall Street job a year later, and then started my Pilates with Hanneke Brand. In 2013 I was awarded a BostonInno 50 on Fire award for one of Boston's 50 most innovative companies. By then I had a burning desire to help people in a more dynamic and impactful way. After a lot of soul searching and again utilizing the skills I had uncovered working with my coach, I realized that I wanted to be a coach empowering women to do what they love and grow their businesses and side-hustles. It's an incredible time to be a woman, but it's also completely new territory for most of us. I'm here to provide support for women who are breaking the norm and want to accomplish massive success in their business and life!

What would your clients say about you and your company?

``Hanneke exceeded all of my expectations. Working with her has really changed my life.``</p> <p>``I was so impressed with all the valuable business information I received. She was engaging, fun and full of resources. I would highly recommend attending her workshops.``</p> <p>``Working with Hanneke was a catalyst to pursue a move cross country to work in an environment that inspires me!``</p> <p>``The real savior was Hanneke's coaching. Working with Hanneke restored my confidence in myself and my abilities, and helped me to organize my goals and make strategic plans to achieve them.``</p> <p>``Our Savvy Success Mastermind Session yesterday was so amazing for me. I went home and had a super productive day and already moving again today. I really like how you can cut through everyone's BS and get us to focus on the important parts that actually move our businesses forward.``

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

The best investment you can ever make is an investment in yourself. And start before you're ready.

What’s your favorite book?

Ooh so many but Denise Duffield-Thomas' Get Rich Lucky Bitch is a great one, along with Tama Kieves Inspired and Unstoppable

What’s your secret weapon?

Investing in the right support for my business, i.e. a business coach, a mastermind, and a great Virtual Assistant and bringing on other contractors as needed for projects.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

It's all going to be just fine!

What is something that not many people know about you?

I've lived in 3 countries, 5 cities, and grew up on a farm. English is my second language.
