Today we’d like to introduce you to Samantha J.
It’s an honor to highlight your success on our platform. Do you mind telling us about the things you’ve been able to accomplish?
From the highest doses of mental illness medication and suicide, to in a short few years becoming an award winning entrepreneur, leading an 8 figure business by growing it by 1600% through one of the most mentally and emotionally challenging times of life, entrepreneurship was my path to get well, which lead to me finding a sense of meaning and purpose and eventually getting off the meds. In that time, I became a mental health advocate and national ambassador for a bipolar research fund, spending weekly time on tv and radio to support mental health awareness. Since then, I have become a best selling author, soulful speaker, and podcast host, through my new business school Empress and Emperor – which was born to help millennials take advantage of the next decade, which I see is the The Great Reset and a New Paradigm of Entrepreneurship. Millennials will be the richest generation in history, and this creates the perfect opportunity for them to take corporate social responsibility through business to solve solve of the worlds most meaningful problems that exist today. So, my business school is helping thousands of entrepreneurs around the world through the pandemic to pivot online, and some are even tripling their income by 300% in countries such as South Africa working with me.
Tell us about some of the memories you’ve made on your journey!
One of my favourite memories on my journey was the awards night when I was award young entrepreneur of the year. In my talk I spoke about this being the ‘age of the mental health entrepreneur’. What I meant by this is that the same challenges that someone with mental health problems go throughs, can actually be the very experiences that shape them to embody the qualities of what a great entrepreneur needs such as resilience, emotional mastery and balance, adaptability, and innovation. I know that mental health experiences, shaped me today into the person who has the power, wisdom, compassion, resilience and adaptive intelligence to lead, and I know those reading can do the same. In the most uncertain and challenging times, you have the opportunity to discover your greatness and realise this! The first step, is trusting the intuition speaking to you inside encouraging you to go in the direction of your heart or soul! And that often means no longer agreeing with the fears in our head so much.
