About the Founder
I am Delfina Correia: wife, mother, teacher, speaker, author, blogger, entrepreneur, and coach. I am certified with The John Maxwell Team, a global network of coaches, teachers, and speakers. I am licensed to teach John Maxwell Team material. I also have my own personal development course.
I grew up in a home with a family-owned electrical and hardware business (which started out as a grocery store). From an early age I learnt about working hard, business, solving problems, teamwork, sacrifice and commitment. My parents taught me that I could only succeed and that no problem is unsolvable. Failure was never even mentioned. So, I grew up believing that I could accomplish anything.
I worked in the family business with my parents and siblings ever since I can remember. When I finished school, I studied business management and did a course in effective communication, human relations and public speaking (both part-time) while running the electrical workshop. I also became the buyer of the electronics department. In later years I became the financial director. After getting married and having 3 children, in 2005, at the age of 35 I resigned to be at home with my children, with one of them having many health challenges at the time.
Wife, Mother & Teacher
Being at home, I poured all my energy into my family, researching on health, which brought me to lifestyle changes for my whole family. Then, in 2012, we took our children out of the private school they were in and began our journey home schooling them. Thank God for the teaching gift I inherited from my father! I have documented most of the wisdom I have learnt over the years on relationships, raising children, health & wholeness, home schooling, finances, marriage and life.
Author, Blogger, Speaker & Entrepreneur
In 2006 my husband and I started our own property development family business which he now runs. I became certified as a speaker and teacher with The John Maxwell Team. Currently, I am teaching, blogging and writing books on personal development, leadership, success, health & wholeness, home schooling, & Biblical research. I have spoken at workshops, groups and events on leadership, personal development, success, my life experiences, raising children, health and wholeness.
Passion & Life Purpose
I want to share my victories with every person I encounter. No one should ever live without the hope of a better future. I use my blog, books, personal development course, public speaking and social media to increase my influence in this regard.
One day when I’m gone I want to leave a legacy which helps people to develop themselves and to continue growing and learning mentally, emotionally and spiritually. And while I’m still here I want to be that living legacy.
