23 Aug About Us
SWSB founded in 2020 is a platform dedicated to motivating, inspiring and empowering women (female entrepreneurs) to find the strength from within them that they need to be the well rounded woman who is confident in herself, striving to be better and successful in her career, business and relationships.
WE BELIEVE SMALL BOXES are mental and physical prisons, limiting and shrinking women in their business, career and relationships and they come in all forms, shapes, faces, circumstances and situations. They come as: doubt, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, stereotypes, people’s expectations and opinions as well as lack of skills, resources and development opportunities to pursue goals and dreams.
We believe that these small boxes are limiting factors especially towards the female entrepreneurs’ journey to success and we are committed to empowering her to overcome and break free from these boxes. We achieve this through dedicated training and coaching services in addition to a thriving support system and community
We believe in a positive holistic approach to entrepreneurial success and find that the 3 greatest challenges to entrepreneur’s success especially as female entrepreneurs are: the lack of business skills, mental obstacles such as mindset limitation, lack of confidence etc and thirdly, the lack of a support system and community.
It is upon this need and gap that the framework for SWSB is built: that mindset impacts the success or failure of any business; that having the right community and support system can drastically impact the success and sustainability of a business; and that having the right skill set will create avenues for growth and success.
This need forms the basis for the services we offer as well as the creation of our thriving online community and support system for female entrepreneurs called FEDHUB! (The Female Entrepreneur Development Hub)
This framework allows us to cater to 2 unique and extremely important aspects of the female entrepreneur: the mind and the professional development.

So I had this exciting coaching session with coach Gertrude today and I must say it was amazing. Okay, sincerely I was blown away by the session, initially I thought it was going to be just her giving me some business tips and secrets but No,she allowed me talk about my business effortlessly and she listened ?. Such patience is worth emulating. I got to understand why my sales via my video Marketing has probably not been getting clients turn up.. The line that got me was "people buy emotionally,so put in more emotions into your marketing to get more buyers". Thank you so much ma'am,I love to see women help and collaborate with other women in Business.
Gethrude was amazing at helping me to gain clarity on my social media specifics and what I should be posting/focusing on. She is great at what she does and I would definitely recommend! Thank you so much for your help!!
