Would you like to take part in a book writing project?
I am sending out an open invitation to ten prospective women candidates to take part in a book writing project.
Are you passionate about getting your story out but don’t know where to start and how to do it?
A great way to start is to team up with other people.
This helps to lighten the workload and gives you the confidence that you are not alone. Moreover the idea of writing a book can be daunting especially if you have not done one before.
The aim of this book project is to help you get your story out on paper, in the form of a book. The good news is that you would not be writing the entire book. The book will be a collective, from ten willing participants.
All you have to do is be willing to write your story, just one chapter is enough. Altogether there’ll be ten chapters. With a step to step guide on how to get put your story down on paper you can rest assured that your worst nightmares are now over.

Say Goodbye to Past Hurts and Welcome Change, was the theme for our ‘Women with a Purpose’ Breakfast on Saturday 8th October 2016
Sometimes saying goodbye can actually be a cool thing to do.
When you pay off a debt…..its goodbye debt!
When a fracture heals……its goodbye cast!
When you become cancer free....it's goodbye cancer!
When you forgive someone…..its goodbye bitterness
When you let go of the your past hurts…….it’s goodbye heartache
And when you let God step in……its welcome change!
Many times in life, the most freeing thing to do is simply say goodbye and welcome change.
We discussed topics such as:
Breaking taboos, norms and habits
Blind spots that hinders change
Planning for a better future
Put an end to the cycle of set backs
Saturday 25th June 2016 - This workshop is exceptional and holistic in its approach, focusing on not only health and well-being but also adding in creative activities suitable for everyone. The workshop was open to both men and women who want to take charge of and master their own health and well-being. “It is not just women’s health, men’s health matter too”
In 2015, we ran four events for this year – ‘Career Change for the Working Woman’ ‘Celebrate the Powerful Woman Within,’ ‘A Health and Well-being Workshop’ and ‘Women with a Purpose Breakfast.’
Each event was run with a different purpose in mind, for example, the career change for the working woman was held to provide support for women who are looking for a career change and do not know which way to turn or looking for a new direction.
The health and well-being is the company’s yearly key event and the founder’s heart desire to provide inspire, empower, encourage and provoke women to take ownership of their well-being and health.
Celebrate the powerful woman within was carried out to commemorate the international women’s day and finally ‘women with a purpose breakfast’ was held to bring healing to women from past hurts.
We had highly effective speakers for all of these events who invested their time, their expertise and show great love. Apart from the fact that the event was well organized, the speakers gave their personal touch and added style to the events. There were other side attractions such as listening to live jazz, manicure and facials.
