Ready to play BIG?

Are you ready to step into your next phase of business? You've been around the block, you've done your time, you're an expert in your field and the time has come for you to lead, mentor and coach the next generation and teach what you know.

It's time to brand yourself as the expert that you are!

Be yourself and you can be anything


Looking to the next phase?

Do you feel like you're at a turning point in your life and business? I've been there...

I got the dreaded call (again) – my grandmother had passed away this time.

I was half way around the world and wasn’t able to fly home to be with my family for her funeral as I had weddings to shoot for the studio that weekend.

She’s not the first person I’ve lost and my Dad leaving us when he was only 54 got me re-assessing my life and where I wanted to be and what I wanted to do.

I’d run a successful photography business in London for 8 years which took my husband and I around the world to far-flung destinations including Bali and Marrakech.

We then joined a studio in the picture perfect Caribbean where I had my baby girl and went back to work when she was 6 months old.

I’d gone back to having a job and the terms of my life were dictated by the needs of the studio and the photography clients.

I started experiencing anxiety, had no time for myself, was feeling the pressure of when I’d be going back to work full time (when in truth all I really wanted at the time was to be with my baby who was under the age of one).

The truth was I never wanted to go back to work full time. Ever.

I don’t want to work in my business full time either! So I don’t.

I was juggling a teething baby, who I loved with all my heart – but let’s face it there are some difficult times. Cue a 1-hour session bouncing on a medicine ball trying to lull her to sleep!

Worst of all when I ran the numbers Saharah’s nanny was making more than me! 

Because she had to be there half an hour before I left for work and half an hour after I had finished it worked out that she took home more that I did at the end of each month.

There had to be a better way to do this mom + passionate career thing!

I’d had my own business before and although it comes with its ups and downs I love that when I come up with ideas, work harder and get more clients in, it directly increases my income.

I had to overcome my guilt about leaving a good job, a gorgeous location and I followed my heart. 

My heart lead us back to Africa, to be near our family for a while and see what it’s like to live here again.

I invested in a high-level business coach, got clear on my real desires and discovered that my core values include:


Within 3 months I’d launched a new Social Media Marketing company, signed up 5 ongoing clients in my first month, resigned from my job and started packing for South Africa!

The company grew to the point where I had two full-time staff helping me with up to 10 clients per month! People started reaching out to me for mentoring / coaching help and my business coaching grew organically.

I invested in a year-long coaching program in 2015 and officially launched my coaching business in January 2016.

Since then I've helped women transition from PA jobs to full-time photographer, burned out wedding photographer to brand developer, wedding blogger to a business coach, struggling entrepreneur to fully booked out web design business... the list goes on.

The point is you can transform, evolve and step into who you want to become both in your life and business.

I know how scary it can be to follow your dreams and go for it.
I've moved continents 3 times, launched 3 new successful businesses, traveled to 23 countries and had a baby in the middle of all of this!

I know that the dream you have for your extraordinary life is possible if you get clear, get support and then take action!

I am now creating CONSISTENT 5-FIGURE MONTHS (USD $) in my business!

As a result of my work with Chanelle, I launched a new branding package in 2 weeks! I have a plan of action for my brand, my message, and my offerings and I am now creating consistent 5-Figure months in USD! 

My brand is fresher and attracts my ideal clients easily, and I am in a position to reach my financial goals without sacrificing my lifestyle or freedom.

My new business launched within 2 weeks of our coaching intensive in South Africa!

Chanelle helped me get clear on how to package my offering and what price point it should be. I learned how to attract my ideal clients through creating a very personal brand.

Within 3-months, I’d completely changed career paths from PA to landing my dream job as a full-time photographer at one of the top studios in London! A few months down the line and I'm about to go out on my own and launch my own brand VB Portraits! 

I highly recommend working with Chanelle. She is a very inspirational woman and artist; she has a very positive energy, and she definitely has a gift for teaching!
