What do members have to say about Bravery School?

Cheryl, Self Employed, says:

“I signed up for Bravery School after a referral from a friend because as I was in the process of starting my own business.
In the first session Telana spoke on Maps and Territories, and in my head I was thinking ‘’What has this got to do with me starting my business?” I needed the confidence to know how get clients and earn money. I could not see the relevance or connect the dots but I THANKFULLY persevered.

Let me share some of the masterclasses that had the greatest impact on me. Firstly Mindsets- I did not know how much of the way I grew up influenced my thinking, which leads to the other class that impacted me …The Imposter Syndrome. Which I still sometimes battle with but I now have tools to overcome it. Why would people choose me over someone else, and if they did they would find out that you are a fake (which i am not), …but it helped me solidify and persevere in my business. ( I can now say that boldly even though I only have 2 clients (at the time of writing this) … Time management was another one. It brought out the ‘stupidity’ of multitasking (my own words) but I have put this into practice and I personally feel I am more focused and I remember better. Risk Fit- the joy of taking risks. I am doing what I believe I should be doing, how many people can say that? Striving for excellence and not perfection. If you want it perfect, it’s never going to happen, and who determines perfection anyway???

So yes, I would recommend Bravery school… The support when I was stuck- Doing a mind map, the one on one coaching session – when I was overwhelmed… helped me tremendously.. and Telana’s not so bad herself. ;)”

Lianne B, Reading Therapist says:

“Telana, I’d like to say a heartfelt thank you for the work that you do and the time and effort you put into supporting people starting up a new business.

Joining Bravery School was one of the best decisions I’ve made. When I first signed up, I had no idea the impact it would have on my thinking, behaviour, decision making and interaction with others. It has been life changing. In addition, it has been affordable for someone starting out and has been worth every cent.

You have such tremendous insight into what self-esteem is and the foundations of true self-confidence. You also have a knack for highlighting what is important and putting something complex and profound in such a simple way that it becomes understandable and accessible to everyone. The people in our class came from cities across the country and a wide variety of backgrounds. Yet we bonded and as we got to witness each other change, grow and strengthen over time. I appreciated the fact that you allowed each of us to choose our level of participation.

In our latest session the feedback made it apparent that every single one of us had been on a transformative journey; that we now have a more intimate knowledge of ourselves (our filters and triggers), are closer to our goals and are able to face life’s challenges with more clarity, purpose and confidence.  Personally, the process we went through gave me the motivation and courage to confront and overcome one of my greatest stumbling blocks, which affected me personally and professionally. I am now able to move forward, and flourish and I will always be grateful to you for this.

One of your many talents is helping people who are starting out with a new business venture or career path. I feel excited on behalf of your future entrepreneurial clients as they embark on this magical journey with you.

Thank you!

Lianne B”

Sevarian, Store Manager, shared this:

“Bravery School has impacted my life in a very positive way and I can highly recommend these sessions with Telana.  I was a bit nervous going into the sessions but quickly found out that these are all normal everyday people that have been feeling the same way that I have. It has been great to have a platform and safe space to be able to share and learn and realizing there’s no such thing as a stupid question. I love the interaction with everyone, this has really changed my life. “

Stuart shared this voicenote (and called Telana a “biscuit” 😉 ) :

“Hi Telana. A huge shout out to you. I’ve been involved in a hectic campaign to get things produced and been involved, emotionally, physically and mentally involved with drawbacks at every corner, and honestly without your course I would have lost my shit a long time ago… And you may quote me on this, write it down, whatever you want, but this is the truth. Your course has helped me so much just with understanding, and also this Imposter Syndrome thing, which I never thought I was never really a part of. There’s been a particular part of this and having a look at it and understanding it better has made me a lot more aware of things, a lot more engaged with myself on a positive level, and a lot better. And I don’t know if it’s going to work out for me in terms of the business, but I tell you what, it certainly has been delivered and wouldn’t have been without your assistance. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You are a biscuit!”

Natasha shared this email:

“Dear Telana,
I hope you are well.
…I would just like to thank you as always for reminding me of my self worth and that I am in control of how I feel and think about things. Thank you for giving me the chance to be courageous.
I really do appreciate it. May your Bravery School be blessed as I have been through it.

Stuart Dilworth, Owner of Propsign, shared another testimonial:

“Telana is a gifted trainer who imparts her knowledge in a casual, friendly, and personal manner in the language and with examples that relate to the circumstances to make the course easier to understand. Her impact on me throughout the course through her understanding of the human psych has been positive, informative and empowering.
Bravery school has been and eye opener. Without any understanding of the psychological elements that have affected me in my own journey through life I always thought I was strong, self sufficient and unhindered by my thought processes. Having done the course, I now realise how dysfunctional I have been. Through Bravery school I can now identify negative thoughts, understand them, stop them and act in a beneficial and optimal manner for ME based on my values, goals and worth.
The result has been a better understanding of my self esteem and a higher value added to society.”
