Dream BIG Manifesto

This is for the Dreamers. The ones who start stuff. The World Changers. The Lovers who inspire. The channels of hope that compel us to fly.

This is for the radicals. The darers. The ones who forge paths where few dare to explore. The Warriors who know that every champion gets hit- it’s the getting up and staying in the game that wins.

This is for the Reachers. The ones who know the stars are not out there but inside them. The ones who live for a calling greater than human ears can hear.

This is for the jumpers. The ones who’d rather take uncertain jumps and fly for just one moment than live wondering, “What If?”

This is for the Creators. The ones who don’t wait for change but make the change we need.

This is for the ones who cannot be tamed. The ones who cannot be contained.

This is for the crazy! The bizarre! The magicians that bring us WOW! The ones who cannot stop. The ones who dance to their own rhythm. The ones who show us the beauty of living.

This is for the Game Changers. The Impacters. The ones whose hearts are so focused on their Destiny no set back can hold them down.

This is for the ones who don’t give up. Who keep going against staggering odds.

This is for the Dream BIGGERS! The ones who inspire us to reach beyond ourselves and bring to life what we’ve always dreamed.

Dream ON DreamBIGGERS! Dream ON!

Quit Asking God for Money!

That’s far too short-sighted.
God not only wants to bless you with money, He wants you to create Your Own Money Printing Machine: A Successful Business or Career.
So quit asking God for money and ask Him to show You how to create wealth instead.
Money doesn’t last. Wealth of Knowledge does.

That Odd Place Called “Transition”

Recently various people have been speaking with me about going through an “odd” time in their lives.

I recognise it because I’ve been through it too: Transition.
Transition is an odd place. A very odd place.
It’s neither Here nor There- it’s just… blah.
It can also be uncomfortable mainly because it’s uncertain, new, territory.
You‘re going through transition when you don’t want to be where you are but you‘re also not sure of where you‘re going.
Sometimes the Transition happens out of choice, other times purely as a result of circumstances beyond your control.
My transition was a hard one. Feeling torn between what I really really REALLY wanted to do and what I felt I had  to do.
But in all of this, especially if you too are going through transition, what’s crucial to remember is that God Loves You. And He’s with you in and during this period.
In the past two weeks various people have sent me the same verse, Jeremiah 29:11 where God says: “I know the plans I have for You…”
The first time, it was my friend Antonette Hardy who sent this Scripture to me. I wanted to weep. In fact I did. It was what I really needed that morning.
I think in my heart I was crying, “Lord You do?”
It sounds bizarre that I asked God that but I felt overwhelmed by all that was on my plate.
But God did. And He does Know.
A few days later someone else sent that same Scripture to my phone. It happened again a few days after that.
I knew then God was saying something to me, “Hannah, I KNOW the plans I Have for You…”
I’ve seen God’s Beautiful, Powerful Hand on my life many many many times- and yet there are times when I still go through periods when it’s really hard to trust His Plans. One of THE most difficult prayers for me to pray is: “Daddy God, YOUR Will…”
And yet, His Will is the Safest to be. And the most Peaceful.
Have a great Day!

That Rumbling in Your Heart Means…

Once Upon a Time I found myself in SUCH a pit- I thought I’d never get out.

That was a tough time in my life that to this day brings tears to my eyes.
I am grateful for my son Luke because without him, at that time, I don’t know…
It was through my boy that God gave me hope.
My Beautiful Boy Luke. His name means Bringer of Light.
My Beautiful Boy Luke. His name means Bringer of Light.
I have written about this a little in depth and hope to share it with you soon, for now though I’ve been feeling it so strong on my heart that I need to meet with some of you to discuss You, Your life, Your dreams, ambitions and how to get there.
Last week I shared with you about this time in my life called Transition and it’s a sentiment I’m hearing from so many others.
Friday, March 27 at 9.30am – 12 (Midday) I’d like to meet those of you who would like to for a coffee to discuss Personal Branding.
Personal Branding is one of those terms that sounds a tad overwhelming and rather self-centered.
But it’s simple, powerful and when done right, one of the most generous things you could do with your life.
At our Coffee (or Tea ) we’ll really be delving into that tug you’ve been feeling at your heart.
How do you get from where you are now To where You envision?
How do you release what’s been placed on the inside of you?
For some the question might even be, How do you recognise what’s been placed in you?
Some feel a powerful rumbling inside you, you know the world will be better for it but you’re battling with how to make it happen.
I’ll be sharing the very practical steps I’ve been using to brand myself and help you create (or grow) something you’re truly passionate about.
And of course we’ll be discussing Social Media! (If you have a business and are not using this VERY powerful tool this is definitely for you.)
Never in the history of mankind have people like you and me been able to access TONS of people by a click of a button. It’s a tremendous blessing that no business owner can miss.
I’ll be sharing some what I’ve done for our Social Media Marketing. I’m excited about this because I’ve seen it work beautifully!
I’ve found that you don’t have to have a “life-plan”. Anyone who’s lived a little knows that our lives don’t always pan out as we think they will- and I thank God that that’s the case. Because sometimes we lose awesome blessings because of trying to “stick to the plan.”
I’ll be sending more specific details of what we’ll cover in that time we’ll be together.
For now if this resonates with you please let me know.
Also I feel to ask you pray about it and ask Daddy God if this is for you right now. For some of you this may not be the right time or season for this and for others this is what You really need to take you to that next level you’ve been praying for.
This is a paid event to be held in Johannesburg: R650 per person.
For those who may want to attend but have to work, we’ll be providing certificates of attendance- Motivate your attendance to Your boss as part of Your training and development. You never know they might even pay for you to attend!
This is going to be time You’ll be SO grateful you spent this way.
You’re welcome to pass this info on to people you know need something like this- I know it’s going to be powerful and awesome.
I look forward to spending this time with you.
Warmest Regards,

How to turn Your BIG Idea into BIG Profits

Inspired by the responses we’ve received so far for the Survey we sent out Titled “Calling ALL BIG Dreamers” I’d like to answer a theme that has come up in almost all the responses we’ve received so far: Where to start.

A lot of the time we may have a GREAT idea but it’s the getting it done that often holds us back.

My way of dealing with this is: Just start. Don’t over-think just do one thing and go with it.
The very first place to start is getting in touch with Like-Minded people.
The way to do that is so super duper easy you’ll kick yourself if you’re not already doing it: Post A LOT about what you’re interested in on your social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIN etc.
One of our survey respondents said they were most interested in healthy and sustainable living and hoped to one day open their own business geared toward this.

I can’t give details about their idea as I don’t have permission to do so, but I know there’s a huge, HUGE, market in this particular space they want to get into.

So what should their first step be? Start posting a lot on their social media platforms about healthy living.

Let me give you an example using one of my own interests.
I’m BIG on detoxing. In my mind, detoxing is THE number one cure/prevention/best thing EVER!
If I wanted to open a detox type business I would post things about the benefits of detox.
I would give a list of common ailments people may be struggling with (such as constant fatigue, bloating and insomnia)  and what foods they could cut out of their diet that would INSTANTLY make them feel better.

For instance some researchers believe that there could be a strong connection between intolerance to gluten (mostly found in wheat, barley, rye and oats) and insomnia.

So on my social media platforms I might post something like:

Could GLUTEN be keeping You Awake?

Could gluten be keeping You awake?

Then I’d give a bit more info on this.

I could also post pictures of juicy slices of fresh paw paw (which is one the best detox foods one could eat).
I’d share pics of GORGEOUS skin and give a few tips on how to cleanse and tone using natural products such as olive oil and honey.

One of my fave detox juices is pawpaw and pineapple. It’s DELICIOUS and best taken as a breakfast smoothie. I’d share such easy (quick) healthy recipes.

I’d post beautiful glasses (or bottles) of water and write one liners such as: “The number one ingredient for younger looking skin”.

I would post pics of me or a friend working out and write one line like: “My happy time” 🙂

Some of my status updates would read something like:
“Did you know that sunshine is a natural aphrodisiac? Get your sun fix today and feel the love 😉 ” For that one I’d probably include a happy pic of someone dancing in sunshine or just relaxing in open air…

I could share real life stories and incidents of how healthy eating and detox plans have helped families who’d battled to conceive finally do so naturally etc etc etc

I’d share powerful information from various sources on healthy living including videos (such as a trailer from the documentary film Food Matters).

I would definitely also share my own personal stories of how detox saved my life and stories of people I’d met who’d cured themselves of serious illnesses by following detox programs.

I can tell you now that if I did this regularly the people connected to me on Social Media would soon recognise Me as THE go-to person on health, natural remedies and of course detox!

Once I’d done this for a while and could see that people were responding and engaging with my posts I’d then take it one step further…
That one step further I’ll share with you another time.

What I wanted to share in-depth here is that too many people are complicating the “how to start” part.
The best way is to start small, with people you know. Your venture will grow from there.

HUGELY Effective Networking Tips

1. Become very active on social media. Post about yourself, things you think about, things that matter to you, encouraging material and what you’re most passionate about.

2. Interact with people on social media. At least once a day go through your Facebook/Twitter and “Like”, “Comment” or “Favourite” on other people’s posts. Do NOT spend too much time on Social Media so make a time for this and ensure it doesn’t interfere with your productivity.

3. If someone comments or shares your posts, like their comment or go to their profile and like your post that they shared. People want to be acknowledged and this is a great way to thank people who take the time to interact with your posts.

4. If you have a business speak about it at least once or twice on social media. Not more than that as it may seem as though you’re hounding people with your product/service.

5. Every day think of how you can serve others with what you know/have.

A brand is worthless if it doesn't connect

6. Contact people you know personally such as friends and family. Send them an email detailing your business. Add a personal touch by telling them what inspired you to start your business and what you enjoy most about it.

7. Meet people Regularly for the sake of making new friends. Don’t seek to meet new people with the sole aim of how they’ll benefit you. Meet people to get to know them, what they enjoy doing and what’s important to them. This is an INCREDIBLE tip I learned from Dale Carnegie’s book “How to Win Friends and Influence People.”

8. Make your business about serving people instead of making the quickest buck. You’ll be amazed at how much more you’ll connect with potential customers. And how much more loyal they’ll be to your business when they feel valued by You.

9. No matter who you do business with, a family member, friend, colleague or complete stranger, treat everyone with the highest honour, integrity and professionalism.

Even your family members will NOT recommend you or your business if you did not show them these qualities.
Word of mouth referrals are vital for any business. Be sure that every customer you serve is SO THRILLED with your service and product they tell others about you.

10. Be Genuine. Every day people are BOMBARDED by companies and people wanting money from them. Putting your customers first is a rare quality they’re sure to love you for.

Ask God Why

Question Mark Small

Stop. Ask God why. Ask Him all the Whys you can think of. Above all ask Him, “Daddy God, what do YOU want for me? What’s Your heart for my life? Give me the courage to believe what You’re saying no matter how crazy it seems.”


You are Royalty

I used to get SO offended if someone treated me badly.
If I were treated poorly because of my race, age, nationality or gender I used to get so OUTRAGED I couldn’t see straight for days after the incident.
Now that I understand my Royal Status how someone else chooses to treat me does not bother me- because I know that I’m Royalty.
How they treat me is not a reflection of me, it says absolutely NOTHING about who I am or my worth and value as a Person.
You are Royalty.
Believe it. Live it every moment. Walk in it. Stand strong in it.
You. Are. Royalty.

More About The Supernatural Ways of Royalty

Promote honor and humility- with confidence. Cultivate His love for one another.

TOP Tips on writing a Winning CV

So You want the job. But so do hundreds or even thousands of others.

Wanting it is not enough.

I’ve put together some useful tips that have helped me land jobs I really wanted.

1. Don’t rely solely on positions advertised in the media. Target companies You would like to work with.

2. Find who the relevant person is to approach at the company you’d like to work. Unless you’re responding to a position advertised in the media never randomly send your CV to an HR Department. Ever. Always look for the hiring decision maker for the position you’re looking to fill, then email them directly.

3. Before you start sending out your resume ensure that it reads great. Always have a Cover Letter accompanying your proposal.

What most employers want to know is largely about your experience. (Which is why it’s crucial for young people to gain some experience in whatever field they hope to get into as early as possible). The number one question any company wants to know from potential employees is: What do you bring to the table?

Remember No One is looking for You. No one is wanting to do you a favour by hiring you- companies will hire you based on only one thing: How you will add or improve to their offering.

Your cover letter needs to show them how you’ll do this.

Your cover letter is the body of your email. Your CV will be attached to this email.

The things you need to pay extra attention to are:

– Who your email is going to.  Address it to the decision maker.

– Subject line of your Email:

For Example: Proposal to work with Your Dream BIG Production Team

Be specific about which division you’re applying for.

In the body of your email never ever write: “To whom it may concern…” Not Ever.

This is why it’s essential to know who your mail is going to. Address that person accordingly. Be sure of what gender they are and address them accordingly: Dear Ms… or Dear Mr….

For Example:

Dear Ms Viviers,

I trust this finds You well.

Ms Viviers, I currently work as a Senior Content Producer at 1TV…

Always be formal in your address to your potential employer.

Now for your cover letter,

Keep it short and straight to the point. Usually only three paragraphs at most. No one cares for lengthy emails. Especially in business.

In the first paragraph briefly explain:

– Who you are

– Your responsibilities at the company you’re working at currently

– Highlight what has made you efficient and successful in your current role. This is important because it instantly shows your value to the potential employer.

In the second paragraph give reasons for wanting to move to the company you’re applying to. Never say it’s because you want more money and by Goodness don’t ever say it’s because “you’re not happy” in your current job. All that’ll say to the person reading your job application is that you’re a whiner and they cannot trust to hire you.

Make your desire to move from your current position ALL about your desire for growth in your career. Be very specific about how you see the company you’re applying to as superb to spur on that growth.

It helps very much to have researched the company you’re applying to because then you can be specific about the role you see yourself playing at the company and also how you envision them encouraging and nurturing the growth you desire.

In your third paragraph briefly put everything together: Your experience, your desire for growth, the opportunities you see in the marketplace and how you want to be a part of what the company you’re applying to is doing to be a market leader.

End your cover letter with:

I look forward to hearing from You regarding my proposal to work with you.

Yours Sincerely

Joe Blog

PART 2: Your CV

The truth is, for the most part, no one really cares which primary school, high school or college/university you went to.

So please do not start your CV with your past educational qualifications. No one really cares.

Start with your personal details.

Be brief and neat.

Right after your personal details include your current employment details i.e. where you work and your job title there. This should be followed by your work experience at other companies.

After your work experience you can now cite your academic qualifications. Always start from most important and highest qualification going backwards. Stop at your most past academic qualification after high school. Again no one cares which high school you went to so don’t include that.

After that cite at least three references with reachable contact details. Cell numbers are best. Include land lines and email addresses as well.

Your CV is your very first interview with a potential employer. Treat it as such.

Best Wishes!

Honouring Love

Look around. There are people who Love You. Very deeply.
It’s time to let go of the people who left You.
It’s time to forgive the hurt. It’s time to stop wishing for what was and what could happen. Look around you right now. There are people loving You.
Maybe a dear friend, or your children- maybe it’s your sister or brother who think the world of You.
There are people who love You.
Honour their Love. Soak in it.
Leave the past behind and look forward to what is to come.
