I was never the one who was known for taking huge risks, not in my career or in my life for that matter, but something in me changed since 2015.
I started my career in 2004 as a legal assistant in a small law firm in Pretoria. Little did I know that the industry would pose so many challenges for females let alone for females who wanted a work-life balance and a family. I continued to grow and succeed nonetheless. In 2014, I had the privilege to meet a fantastic human being who not only convinced me to enrol for my MBA, but also motivated me throughout my journey and created opportunities that I would never be able to thank him enough for. It was during this journey that I developed a passion for women empowerment, female leadership and transformation. My decision was made, we need change. Drastically. More importantly, we need to be the change.
It was only during 2017 that I managed to convince myself to start my own venture. It all started on a winters morning in a Mugg and Bean at table number 7. Elysian Consulting was created with a clear purpose, creating more opportunities and empower more females who share our view and sentiment around career ambitions, but also family and life. I chose the name Elysian based on the meaning: “Beautiful or creative, divinely inspired; peaceful and perfect”. Our name proves to be fit for purpose. What a fantastic journey it has been the last couple of months creating something beautiful and inspiring. And this is just the start. We could never have imagined that there will be so many people supporting us throughout this journey. This support continues to grow, for which we will be forever thankful.
There is no doubt that we can deliver on our promises. We have over 14 years of experience in the legal industry. We are both qualified lawyers with more than one post-grad qualification behind our names. Our purpose is not to sell our experience, qualifications or capabilities. Our purpose is far bigger. Our purpose is to create a network of professionals and clients who share our vision around women empowerment and to create more opportunities where women can excel in their career and their family life. We are blessed to start 2018 with a few of these clients and professionals already and we are looking forward to expand this network over the next couple of months.
We wish each and everyone a blessed year ahead. May 2018 be a year full of new opportunities and positive change.
