Daphne confidently went on to create a coaching business to empower women to overcome limiting beliefs, grow in self-confidence wisely use their talents, gain financial stability, set healthy boundaries both at home and in the workplace, and live their dreams.

She stepped into business after a lot of in-depth research and study on the various techniques and skills that best suit the needs of her clients. She says, “Not all clients have the same mindset and one technique doesn’t work for all. Each client is unique and special. Each brings their own needs, wants, and abilities.” She has found that listening with an open mind, being non-judgemental, holding space, and building trust accompanied by her vast experience and knowledge have led clients to major transformation and success.

But her story didn’t start off as a fairy tale, having left her 9-5 job after marriage and becoming a stay home mom, she saw her career getting to the back seat. She says, “I treasured every moment of raising both our kids personally with great love and care.” She shares that she has no regrets about this time well invested in the family and it was all worth it. But her tenacity and resilience didn’t allow her to let go of her dreams.

As her kids started settling down, she stumbled on a psychology course which triggered something deep within her. Beginning with discovering the Counselling Diploma, she began to probe deeper. “Above all, I could better understand how the human mind works, overcome stress, anxiety, fears, embrace situations with a smile, have a positive mindset which led me to a more healthy and happier life.” Following her gut, she stepped up and started sharing her story and today she is a world-renowned leader and motivational speaker.

Her greatest inspiration and role models have been her parents who held senior positions and were very focused yet made time for her and the family. Her mother E.C. Pinto was a Lawyer of the High Court and her father Frank Pinto the Senior Manager of Coordination and Planning. Professionally she is inspired by great speakers and coaches like Tony Robbins, Les Brown, John Demartini, Joe Dispenza, and John C. Maxwell to name a few.

As an inspiring women’s leader, we asked Daphne what brings her the greatest joy, to which she shares that her greatest joy is seeing the success and massive growth of her clients in business and leadership roles, growing in selfconfidence, overcoming limiting beliefs, saying YES to themselves and their dreams. Moms sacrifice so much for their children and family. It is important for a mom to maintain the right balance in her carousel of life and sync to the right rhythm. Be sure to take out some ME time atleast once a week. It is not being selfish but being able to re-energize and re-boost to give the absolute best to your family and clients. You will not do justice to yourself
