Women Wine & Wisdom

Lets get one thing clear, women can and do change the world everyday! 

Women Wine and Wisdom supports you figure out what you want to do and how to make it happen. We are a launch pad for women who have made some big changes to their life whether its moving to Joburg, becoming a mother,  setting up your own business, or simply creating more time for the fun stuff before that next big birthday.     

We understand the stress of change, and how lonely and isolating it can be, over time things do get easier, but maybe your daily routine is just providing a temporary solution that doesn't truly reflect the women you now are. Without strong personal and professional aspirations you won't be able to maximise the opportunities in front of you and before you know it you are sat on the plane back home with a huge bucket list and a few regrets. 

When you join a Women Wine and Wisdom group, we speed up the time it takes to get settled by introducing you to other likeminded women and supporting you figure out what career path to take to align with your new lifestyle. A professional coach who will guide you to connect back with your ambitions, understand your potential, and get clarity on what you need to do to build the career and lifestyle you want. 



Whats in it for me:

Women Wine and Wisdom is all about rediscovering your identity and planning the next stage of your life. 

Our unique programme will open up new pathways, shining a light on all the possibilities and opportunities you might never have noticed without the backing of the group. You will be held accountable to develop your ideas and inspired to see things from a different perspective. You will be encouraged to rebuild your confidence and improve your decision-making skills, all within the safety of our 5 week programme

In addition you will - 

  • Reclaim your identity at home (and /or at work)
  • Maximise your personal and professional potential 
  • Understand what makes you tick, your values and aspirations

Note from the course Author:

For the first few years as an expat, I wished away my time, I constantly looked to the future ‘when we get back to UK, if I have done and achieved x and y I will be able to get this job, or make that work for our family.’ Then it hit me when my daughter started play school how quickly she grew up, I understood how limited my time is with my children is and how important the small things are to me. 

The family swim when daddy gets home from work,
Glass of wine and sundowner with my husband randomly chatting about nothing.

I realized I don’t want to wish my time away, striving to achieve the next dream, I don’t want to wait until we know we are leaving South Africa before I get my bucket list out, I want to know what I want for fun, love, adventure, play, and just enjoy the here and now, the time I have been gifted in this City of Gold, a city of warmth, love and community, the city all three of our children have been born, and a city we call home, for today. 

Here's some nice things people are saying about Translating Me: 

"Hannah has helped me understand what my values are, where my focus should be.”
"This programme has been so helpful in dreaming up my African Bucket list, I cant wait to get started.“ Lauren Smit
"Women Wine and Wisdom has been wonderful, I have met some incredible ladies, that are all so inspirational. But most of all I have found the confidence to establish my own business, to get back in touch with my childhood dreams, and create my own beautiful life.” Jess Dreyer
"Thank you for offering such a thing, we really need these conversations with ourselves and with all around us!" Marilene Van Merve. 
“I have realized I want to learn how to truly connect and play with my kids, - life changing for us all.”
