I am Janine – Co-Founder Female Business Hub

Posted by at in General, Janine's personal blog

I am Janine – the crazy social media marketing geek and wine lover!

What did you want to be when you grew up? 

What do I want to be when I grow up!  I have no idea yet…..  Before I tell you a bit about me, let me tell you a bit more about our why?  Like any entrepreneur,  I have so many ideas and a passion to create so many awesome things and share them with the world!

Ideas and visions that add value, inspire and will help others reach time freedom and financial freedom!  The Female Business Hub is that very vision.  At the Female Business Hub we want other women to live an awesome and abundant life…  that is our why!

So about me… I am Janine.  I am originally from the beautiful country of South Africa, now living in England with my beautiful 2 children.  I own Optimum Business Support  (all things marketing and social media) and I run 4 Women in Business Network groups.   I have been self-employed for 3 ish years and I have been in sales and marketing for over 15 years.   I never ever knew what I wanted to be when I grew up!

I left South Africa 4 months after I finished school, came to travel and I am still here in the UK!  I bumbled through jobs and various roles and never really found happiness in what I did.  I never thought I would work for myself…

Now, I work for myself!   Who’d of thought it, I never had it in me, the courage, the confidence or the know how!  However, I learnt, I pushed myself and I just jumped straight in!

I love marketing and I am a complete social media geek, I blog, I network, I tweet and I love helping small businesses grow and become profitable and successful!   I am an absolute workaholic!  I don’t really have any major views on the world, if I do, I will let you know!  I do have a vision to live by the seaside one day!  And I love a good Pinot!

I am extremely enthusiastic about everything I do and I am really excited about the creation of the Female Business Hub – borne out of a shared vision with the amazing Jess Green, to create an online hub to help awesome female business owners or women who want to become business owners, really take their business or ideas and lives to a new level.  How awesome would it be to achieve that ultimate goal of time freedom and financial freedom whilst doing what you love along the way…

I have visions too of our blog and the Female Business Hub becoming the go to place for female business owners or new business start ups across the world, and along the way, I plan to share my journey, warts and all!  I have a business blog  and I am looking forward to writing for the Female Business Hub a little less formal and relaxed, where I can be myself!  There may be the odd error or two, however as my good friend Shirley always says “I will teach you how to use an apostrophe if it’s the last thing I do!” ….    and for that I am eternally grateful!

We all have good days and bad days and the journey to achieve your goals is never an easy one!  This is going to be an epic journey, so sit back, hold tight and enjoy the ride and your success!!



I have another why, a personal why I do what I do… my two beautiful children!

“I am my children’s laughter on a rainy day and my friend’s laughter and happiness that makes life one big adventure. And I am my Mum’s memory through to her infinite wisdom. I am my children and life and everyone. I am Janine”

Live, love and laugh
