"I felt very middle aged, trapped, frustrated and stuck before I browsed www.careerchange.co.za on the internet.

 

I knew then that Toy held a key that could change the remaining years of my life.

 

I have been in Christian ministry for 17 years, but somehow a realization kept growing in my heart that I was missing out on the ‘best’ that was still locked up inside of me.

 

For years my world revolved around the needs of other people and I never paid any attention to ‘how I was created, what I really wanted or needed’.  I was shooting aimlessly.

 

Toy graciously took me under her wing and together we explored the amazing way God had uniquely wired me to run at the full potential He had in mind for me.

 

She asked some real life questions and with great wisdom guided me to answers that left me so excited sometimes, I could hardly sleep.  It was an opportunity to get “REAL” with myself and that felt like a breath of fresh air.

 

For the first time in my life, someone who really cared, took the trouble to pay attention to my inner thoughts and merging that with my natural gifts, talents and skills.

 

As we progressed through Toy’s unique process in discovering my passions and purpose in life, I felt HOPE growing each and every week. The picture of my personal Puzzle started to emerge and I liked what I saw. It all started to make sense.

 

For the first time in many years I am excited about my future because I have received the tools to assess choices, negotiate terms while engineering and planning to create opportunities where I can run at my full potential and giftings.

 

I now know why I was born.   I just wished I had Toy in my life sooner  - Just imagine where I could have been now and how much better I could’ve served other people !   Just Imagine it …  for YOURSELF!"

“I became frustrated at work. I didn’t feel stimulated or inspired. I thought to myself: “There’s something missing here. Surely you must enjoy going to work. Surely one must have a passion for something and then go out and do it…..surely that is the best way.”

 

I wanted to discover my passion and when I heard that Toy is a Career Coach, I knew it would be worth it to work with her.

 

Toy helped me to see another side of myself which I was totally unaware of. She showed me that I am actually very creative, and I could see it so clearly for the first time in my life.

 

I discovered my passion and who I really was. I now know what my strengths are and can boldly say:” This is who I am and this is what I am about.”

 

Working with Toy was really incredible for me and I would do it all over again without hesitation. She really is fantastic and I referred all my friends to her. She understood and helped me realize so many things.

 

Toy is an open person, listens very well and sees beyond what a person is saying. That made me really feel heard and understood. Toy has a heart for people and wants to see them reach their potential. I just loved working with her”.

"Before working with Toy I always did my best to have a positive attitude about my business.  Somehow, however, I never really felt successful. 

 

There was a time when I was extremely busy and making lots of money, but I was so drained by all the activity that it was not a happy time for me.  I also felt my website could be improved, but I did not know how to go about it.

 

Toy’s clarity of mind and purpose helped me to snap everything into focus.  Her pertinent questions forced me to make positive choices.  Since working with her I have had a paradigm shift in my thinking.  I now have a vision of how I really want my business to be, which is small, but very exclusive and rewarding. What’s more, I suddenly have the confidence to actually believe it can come true.

 

I have now taken concrete steps to do what is necessary to start the ball rolling, and the results are beginning to show! In the last month my new vision for my business has been colouring my every move, and since then I have only attracted top quality clients, as opposed to wasting my time with people who were not really in my market, as I often did before.  I am conserving my energy and only putting in effort where it really counts.  I now have plenty of time and energy for both work and play!  My life is at last coming into balance and my morale has gone up by leaps and bounds.

 

Her assistance with the design and wording of my website has been invaluable and I now have confidence that I have a world class website.

 

Thanks, Toy, for setting my footsteps on the road to a totally new life!"

“I got to a point in my career where I didn’t enjoy my work anymore. I was starting to contemplate leaving my career but felt unsure about the direction I should go in.

 

I realized that not only do I have a lack of direction but that I also have been feeling purposeless for a long time. This created negative thoughts and I was feeling unsure of myself and my ability.

 

I wanted to do something about my situation but didn’t know where to start. A friend told me about Toy and I was very interested in what she had to offer. After a get-acquainted session with Toy, I realized that she will be able to help me.

 

Toy helped me to realize that I am unique and that I had a special gift. Discovering myself truly changed my life.

 

Toy also helped me to change my thought patterns and be more focused on the positive things in my life. I now know in what direction I want to go with my career and that I have a purpose in life.

 

Toy really understood me and my situation and I will recommend her to anyone.”
