One Giant Leap ⛰️
Moniek launched a technology incubator for black-owned businesses in South Africa, named "One Giant Leap." This venture provided support to diverse enterprises, from township waste management to city-based IT companies. Her role evolved from offering business advice to nurturing the personal growth of business leaders, recognizing the intrinsic link between an entrepreneur's identity and their business.
A pivotal moment came with an initiative in India, where instead of accepting a lucrative offer from the United Nations, Moniek chose to empower local women by giving them the assets of the company. This decision reflected a deep commitment to purpose over profit highlighting the importance of self-care and balance, integrating entrepreneurial and spiritual paths, and embracing a holistic approach to success and service.
