// FOCUS AREAS & EXPERIENCE //
I'm driven to understand that moves people!
I hold a Bachelors in Social Psychology from BYU in the USA. Post graduation I continued diving deep into the human psyche through the work of Brene Brown, Clarissa Pinkola Estes and Matt Luttica. Including studies of Jung.
Travel & Exploration
When I was a teenager, I would lie in bed at night dreaming of travelling the world. At 18 years old I have my first opportunity to leave South Africa. Since then I've lived on 5 continents and been to over 3 dozen countries and hundreds of cities.
Business & Entrepreneurship
I feel strongly about individuality and independence.
I continually study (and advocate) business, entrepreneurship, online marketing and business to those who are also passionate about PURPOSE+PROFIT. I'm also a multi-scholarship & award winner. Most recent being awarded from Marie Forleo and Ramit Sethi.
Creativity & Art
Creative energy has been pulsing through my veins since my childhood. I've been devoted to music for over 20 years. Singing and performing for audiences in the USA and South Africa over the past 2 decades. I'm a singer-songwriter and working on my first music album.
Education & Development
I'm addicted to learning. You will never find me not studying, learning or integrating something new:
Non-Violent Communication, and Jungian and Archetypal Psychology amongst my current favourites.
Spirituality & Mysticism
I'm an ongoing student of transformative wisdom like The Gene Keys, Evolutionary Astrology, Human Design, Transpersonal Numerology, Meditation and QiGong.

// About Jacqueline //
Hi, it's Jacqueline.
Want to know about my crazy life so far?
I was born and raised in South Africa on the continent of Africa. From young, I dreamed of travelling the world. When I was 18, I was given an opportunity to visit the United States. While there I explored the idea of attending a US university I'd dreamed about attending. I later applied, was accepted and received a partial tuition scholarship.
To make studying in the USA work, I held multiple jobs while studying. I worked my way up from the BOTTOM of the ladder. Literally. My first job was cleaning toilets at 4 AM in the morning making a mere $7/h. That was in 2003. I then slowly made my way to jobs that started at civilized hours, gaining confidence and experience and slowing increasing my pay level. I recall getting offered $10/h and being ELATED. That was in 2011. I took me 8 years to get paid an extra $3/h. And I was grateful, but I was struggling to pay the bills even though I like as cheap as was humanly possible. I rode the bus, rode a bike, barely ever ate out, and bought used textbooks. But my hard work and sacrifices paid off.
Finally and gratefully I graduated in 2011 with no student loan debt and $1500 owed on my credit card, that I'd used to pay my final tuition.
Luckily after a series of courageous investments and actions, I increased my hourly rate to $25/h and went out on my own as a freelance consultant -- where the pay ceiling was up to me! Within 3 short years, I moved up to getting paid $75/hour. Today I'm paid as much as $250/h for my consulting and coaching, from HAPPY clients who find deep value in the support, guidance and direction I offer.
I get to do what I enjoy, supporting and service entrepreneurs and creatives, in living their best lives, while balancing and growing their businesses.
