About

Born and bred "on the rock" a tiny Island in the Med - called Malta to parents rich with love, but otherwise on the poverty line. I grew up hungry in every possible way for food and knowledge.

Through a career as TV anchor and one of the top female entrepreneurs in Malta – and having travelled to more than 100 destinations, I help people like yourself, dreaming huge, but struggling in your first year of business. I create a clarity of what you need to do to achieve success. Step by Step.

But How Did It Really Start? - I still guest appear in shows and that is a standard question.

My father was a driver at the local bank and dreamt that I would become a banker.  I concurred. A clerk would have sufficed but I studied finance and on graduation and ranked 10th worldwide.

But my heart was elsewhere.  I became a top TV presenter by the age of 20 – with Good Morning Malta – a six-hour marathon live program which is still remembered today 35 years later.

By the age of 24, my life was a total jumble. I was still working at the bank as a manager now, I was the best TV anchor on the Island, I was teaching Law Related to Finance and making good money….. but guess what my heart was just not in it.

At the 25 I QUIT!! I left “my comfort zone”. I was labelled crazy leaving a 9.00 – 5.00 job that was “safe and secure”. I broke the chains that were shackling my real growth.

Luckily I went to Hong Kong – a trip which was monumental for a small island girl in Europe. And my eyes saw wonders.

I came back home and started my first real entrepreneur job – a furniture business – an ambitious attempt to reproduce Chinese Furniture from a local production (imports were prohibited at the time).

In no time I had a chain of retail stores appropriately called “Orienta” and a team of furniture workshops and artists “emulating” Chinese furniture.

Later, I developed an interior design business, which grew into property business and finally left the Island to go and live in another Island very far from home.

I moved to Bali in 2010 and I slowly started building my business mentoring business to new entrepreneurs from the bottom up.

I’ve chased my tail. I lived burn out. I broke my back in 2006 in a massive car accident that left me in a bed for months – but nothing could break my spirit.

I am the living proof that you do not need resources to become successful – you only need to BE RESOURCEFUL.

Although, I have had a formal education in Finance, I went through it whilst working.  I am not a huge believer in traditional education.

We are living the age of “self-education” which is making classic education partly redundant.

I believe that I learnt best from life.  I got more out of the UNIVERSITY OF LIFE – than an classic form of Education.

I truly believe that Millennials should learn the SHORT-CUT TO SUCCESS from those who have already experienced failure rather than from books.

ONLY LIFE CAN PREPARE YOU FOR LIFE

I dared to break the rules of tradition.

I believe that you must have the hunger to never stop learning - if you want to grow and succeed in today’s world!

We live in this beautiful world where self-education is just a button away.  Millennials are famous for self-gratification at the push of a button.  It is a very unfair term to those who bring their whole self to the table and want to grow – even with very little means.

Every person is born with a set of gifts.  Each and every one of us was placed on this earth with a mission.

WE ALL HAVE TO LIVE OUR PERSONAL LEGEND.

Granted that no mission will be achieved without a fair amount of hard work – and a dose of luck or grace or omens (whichever part of the world you come from).

But if you BELIEVE AND WANT IT HARD ENOUGH – SUCCESS IS WITHIN REACH.

I have been blessed with a full and varied life and it continues to grow and expand because I am always Education of Life.

YOU & I

I have spoken about the University of Life.  This is my accumulated knowledge of more than 35 years in business.  I have failed forward. I have achieved and I failed again.  But I NEVER LOOK BACK!   

My enthusiasm is UNSTOPPABLE  and my passion is PROFOUND.  I know that I can give you the Blue Print for Success– because I have the short-cut that cuts through the trials and errors.

In this site you will find a bundle of free training programs as well as inspiration advice.  We work together, hand in hand, on your mindset, where you stand and the 30ft view which a Generation X can gift to a Millennial.

Together we will work on your personal legend and turn you into the next success story.
