Hi, I’m Twaambo
I know I know, you also felt like you didn’t fit in anywhere. I didn’t necessarily feel that way in my childhood, I felt that way as an adult. Especially at work. I was good at what I did but I ‘performed’ so much to feel like I was a part of the team and that I did my job well. Unfortunately, it never felt like a completely good fit. You know when you have a shoe that’s just a little too big and it slips off a bit, or too tight and you can’t walk to fast in them.. that was me.
What I was good at was listening to people and asking questions. My employee evaluations were filled with compliments about how good of a listener I was, especially with personal problems. I was good at asking questions and drawing out things from people’s mental conclusions.
Building confidence is a big thing for me because I ..flunked out of university. There I said it. I’ve not achieved ANY of those big things I said I would do, and it’s taken me a long long time to step into what I am good at. That busted my balls every day because everyone else seemed to at least have some sort of qualification and know which direction to go, I had direction… some of the time. They had the respect of someone that has completed a four-year degree. I didn’t. I made up for it with my humour, my ‘helpfulness’ my ‘resourcefulness’. But the truth was that I had no confidence and hated myself for failing. Then I slowly started to get myself together and asked ‘ What would it look like to believe in myself without all the things I thought I should have to be successful’
I asked and asked. I coached myself free ( and it took forever!), and I want to do the same for you.
I can ask you the questions and you can be free much faster than I was.
This is what I do. I get people to think about what they want. I help people shift their mindset from a place of fear to thinking about their strengths. Sometimes that journey isn’t easy and is uncomfortable, but I am good at explaining why it is important and getting you up and making those changes.
A born and raised Zambian girl that finally gets it. I finally get it when people say that you have to connect the dots backwards to go forward. That’s what happened to me. I finally stopped, looked and listened to the clues throughout my life.. and here I am. Through my honest and refreshing podcast, I help people connect those dots too! I was always curious about why people did the things they did, and heartwarming one on one conversations have always been my jam.
I don’t have a masters or any psychology education. I’m driven by figuring out what is happening in the head and heart, finding out WHY you do what you do. My formal education is in surgical technology—Just like surgery you open up, find what is wrong, fix it, and close it up again. I love figuring out what people believe and how it affects their actions. I’m a writer and speaker, love to ideate and write scripts, and must drink tea. Daily.
