Have you always been in a leadership position? Is this a skill that you are born with or have you developed it through the years?
Yes I have always been a leader, from a young age, and I believe that my parents did encourage that, but it did get me into trouble quite a bit. I think that you are born to be a leader, some people are good at it, and other need to work harder, but one should always play to one’s strengths!
What is your strongest point that enables you to be successful?
Communication is the key. It’s really important to be able to communicate at all levels so that people, clients, and organisations are sure of what you are providing for them. This makes things less stressful and rewards you with returning customers. Always strive to give the best customer service that you can to ensure customer retention, because without customers you are not successful.

What is your biggest success in life?
My biggest success has to be my musical career, which has spanned three decades. Having music on film has to be the biggest buzz in the world. However, I now have Ogle TV and ForceADeal.com They are growing so fast here in the UK and in the United States, heading towards a big success.
What is your reaction to failure?
How can you learn new things without failing at them first? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that we should fail, but we should learn to adjust once we do fail so that we don’t fail again.
What is the biggest lesson you have learnt from your difficult situations?
Keep going, don’t stop, learn what you did wrong, accept it and keep moving forward.
Who has supported you most in life?
I come from a really big family (fourteen brothers and sisters) and besides that, great friends. This is really important for stability, and of course my partner, who is a great source of information support and guidance. He has a real calming effect, but can also frustrate the hell out of me sometimes. Tell me what man doesn’t!
I’m a firm believer that you should allow staff to fulfil their potential, and this means that they have responsibilities and obligations to fulfil them.
How do you motivate your staff to get good results from them at work?
I’m a firm believer that you should allow staff to fulfil their potential, and this means that they have responsibilities and obligations to fulfil them. Making sure that they do not get bored, and that they are challenged regularly with different types of work. I also believe that all personnel should multi-task, to know all aspects of the business that they are in.
What is your biggest dream and how do you make dreams come true?
My biggest dream is to be a success in what I’m doing right now. To open the world to Free TV. Dreams come true in so many different formats, but working hard, keeping an open mind, listening to others, and knowing that the dream is there for you to take.
What is the wisdom that you would share with our readers?
As women we need to help each other, love each other and respect one another! It goes without saying that we do tend to bitch about each other. For example, (look at what she’s wearing, what happened to her hair etc). Stop it and Stop it now. This type of talking is holding us back, preventing us from reaching our potential, and from fulfilling our dreams.
We need to encompass all that we can through doing different things in life. Learning from, helping, and motivating each other, to achieve the heights that we never thought that we could reach without the stimulus. I wish every woman of the world the very best, and leave you with this thought: Spiritual growth results from absorbing and digesting the truth, and putting it into practice in our daily life. I live, move and have, by being in a higher authority.
