"You deserve to succeed"

But if you do not develop yourself and gain a new level of competence, your career and business will suffer.

  • You'll keep feeling dissatisfied, restless and angry. 
  • You'll miss out on numerous opportunities because you are unqualified.
  • You'll keep wondering if you'll ever reach your potential in life.
  • You'll not get that promotion you seek or the new job.
  • You'll find yourself living below your potential when you know you can do more.
  • Your business won't grow and you'll always struggle to make ends meet.

Hearing Vanessa speak at an event in Lagos Nigeria was one of those transforming moments for me. She spoke passionately, sharing her story and carrying her audience along.

When she talked about her philosophy, 'BuildRegardless', I got a clearer path for my life and it helped me to set my priorities right.

I remember her asking “What exactly do you want in life?”. Since that event, I’ve gone beyond just setting goals, but crushing my goals. Everyone needs this Vanessa in their life.

Working with Vanessa revealed an incredibly talented perspective. She has a resoundingly positive outlook and a profound ability to stretch an idea to limits of its potential.

Working with her in marketing an African Conference and fostering the 'I Am Africa Campaign' was very refreshing. She made complicated look simple.

Before working with Vanessa, I had only one shop in Cotonou and struggled with my marketing. I needed help promoting my products and making sales.

With her help, I was able to grow and expand by business. Today I have branches and franchises in over 7 countries in African. If you really want to improve your marketing and grow your business, you should work with Vanessa.

Ideas, Inspiration & Strategies to help you Build for yourself.

Every week I put out a video or write about something I’ve learned on my journey working as a training partner with Google for francophone Africa, as a research student & member of the ACCESS Project (Germany), as a mom, while building my business. 


Sometimes I just tell personal stories, other times I invite really cool people to share their thoughts on building a successful life, career and business.

Meet Vanessa Mbamarah

I believe that anyone can succeed if they have these 3 key elements - They make that Decision to transform their life, have the Discipline to remain focused, and Determination to keep building even in the face of challenges.

I wake up every morning and pave a path to success so more people like you (especially women) can #BuildRegardless of their challenges, transform their life, and make an impact in the world.

My work is to share my story, my experiences, and expertise to facilitate that process for you, giving you the needed information and digital skills to do the things you need to do.
