Meet Ofelia, Many Rivers’ longest serving business coach, located in the North Coast Region of NSW.
Ofelia has over 25 years experience in financial, administrative and human resource management environments, as well as many years in the banking sector in the Philippines. Ofelia has always been involved in local community development organisations and continues to be an active participant in the changing perspective of community support in the Clarence Valley. Listen to this video as Ofelia talks about why she loves her work as a Many Rivers business coach.
Many Rivers Clients
“I have a client from an Indigenous background who had a doubtful attitude and was always doubting herself. She was offered to do a workshop for health and well being for Indigenous high school students. She is only 24 years of age so didn’t have the confidence.”
“In March, she delivered her first workshop with 19 school students. The first thing that she did afterwards was call me and she was yelling down the phone ‘Ofelia I made it.'”
“Now the door is wide open for her. There are three schools waiting for her to deliver her workshop. What is priceless to me is that I helped her build her confidence.”
Working for Many Rivers as a Business Coach
“When one of my clients have success, I feel this joy inside of me. It is not what you have done for the client it is what the client did for themselves. Many Rivers offers them services not only in financial matters but also helps them with their own personal development.”
“What I am offering is me, so what you see is what you get. I don’t have to cover up who I am but I also don’t have the answer to everything. I am also learning.”
“We are making a difference from them being disadvantaged, marginalised Australians and now they can start having ownership of their lives running their own small businesses.”
For those people who are considering opening their own business, Ofelia says, “have a go, there is no harm in trying to have a go and we are here to support you.”
