The Dream BIG Dream

So this week we reached quite a milestone on our Dream BIG TV Show project.

We’re extremely proud of what we’ve achieved in this short time and so excited about this assignment we’ve been entrusted with.

For those who may not have a clue what I’m raving about…

Dream BIG is TV show that seeks out remarkable stories of individuals who’ve overcome insane odds and made a success of their lives.

So if you have people who make your eyes tear up because they’re just so AWESOME and they truly inspire you- give us a shout so we can bring them on the show.

Our aim is to create a platform for such people to reach an even wider audience- so if they’ve inspired you- chances are they’ll inspire so many more people.

Do check out some of the incredible people we’ve posted videos for so far:

Rwandan genocide survivor turned successful entrepreneur: Maxime Mugabe. (Click here to check his story out)

Jennifer Swanepoel an incredible story of a teen mom who years later (other than been an awesome mom) has started a Teen Pregnancy Crisis Centre to empower young moms who find themselves in the same place she was in 17 years ago. (Click here for her story.)

William Jimerson, who despite being born to a single mom in a tough environment in the States, with all the challenges facing young African-American men- beat the odds- and now owns one of the most influential financial firms in Africa. (For his story click here)

Alan Knott-Craig (III) Jnr who after his many tremendous exploits in business found himself ousted out of an empire he created- but bounced back and is now working hard to provide free Wi-Fi for communities that need it most in Africa. His belief: Knowledge is power- and what’s more powerful than the internet and technology? (You can see his story here)

Elungile Mzimba– She was our very first interview. A powerful, amazing woman, who is changing lives and entire communities in some of the most rural areas of the Eastern Cape.

My friend Jennifer Swanepoel has an amazing story.

Her life journey has been one of determination, tremendous courage, tenacity and a true testimony to the transforming power of love.

We recently had Jennifer on our Dream BIG TV Show.

I’ve known Jennifer for years and yet each time I’ve watched her interview I’ve been catapulted to a new level of deep respect and admiration for the woman she is.

Other than her incredible story, we’d brought Jennifer on Dream BIG because of, Gemstones, a Teen Pregnancy Crisis Centre she recently started.

Gemstones was birthed out of Jen’s own experience as a teen mom.

Her heart is to equip young women who find themselves in the same situation she was in seventeen years ago with the tools to overcome the adversities they face.

Jennifer believes that, even with the tremendous challenges that come with being a teen mom, these young women can still mould beautiful lives, first for themselves and by extension, their babies- should they choose to keep them. She knows first hand how possible this is because she did just that.

So often we make it out of extremely trying circumstances… and we manage to build something good and solid out of what we went through.

It’s not often though that those who make it go back to help those who are still struggling in areas the successful have managed to overcome.

Jen has a pretty good life now. After fighting all she had to fight to get to where she is- she’s comfortable now- but she’s choosing to go back into the battlefield to empower young girls who may not have the strength to find their own way.

Dream BIG is about people telling their own remarkable stories.

I can say much about Jennifer but I believe you’ll prefer hearing her tell her own story.

You can watch Jennifer on Dream BIG here.



They’re still a few tickets left for the launch of Gemstones on November 30.

All proceeds from this event go to educating two young moms already in the Gemstones program.

I’ll be hosting a table at the event- we look forward to seeing you there.
