Hi, I’m Dueyna, married to David and mum to two boys, Mzati – 5 and Nthanda – 2. My background is in administration and I spent 8 years working for a global company before I moved to Malawi (David’s home country). During my 4 years in Malawi I worked for several businesses mainly in Marketing and also volunteered with a life skills club for teenagers living with HIV. We made the tough decision to move back to the UK when we became parents. Shortly after getting back into work here I was made redundant and quickly realised that finding a job to fit around school hours was very difficult!! Then a good friend introduced me to an amazing lifestyle company and I launched my own business in 2013, Zotheka Lifestyle (Zotheka means it’s possible). Since then I have enjoyed the fun and flexibility of being a full-time mum whilst having my own business to focus on and helping others to do the same. It is a great feeling helping others to achieve their goals and help them grow. I am excited to have the opportunity to be a part of the  The Family Network team and to support and encourage parents in West Surrey to get the most out of their businesses.

Louise Hoffmann Brooks of Parenting Success Coaching will give a short talk on Saying No Successfully :
Saying no – and communicating our boundaries is an inescapable part of life. For many of us – this becomes even more evident when we become parents and in our role as entrepreneurs.  We soon come to see that there is more to saying no than merely uttering this two-letter word. 
 
Recognise yourself in any of these statements?
– I feel that my no is rarely respected
– I often feel guilty when I’ve said no to someone – so I end up saying yes when I actually mean no.
– Saying no is not a problem for me – it’s the aftermath – the reaction – that I can’t handle. 
– I’m not really sure HOW I can say no in a respectful way without losing authority. I tend to only be heard if I get shouty or angry.  
 
If so.. you are not alone!
But it can all be learnt. 
 
In this talk I will share with you the  
– The steps to a ‘good no’ – said in a way that make children want to listen without having to take away TV rights for a week!
– Strategies for putting a stop to the endless negotiations that often follow a no. 
– And what to do when your child / co-worker / friend has a reaction to your no.
 
Giving an honest no – is much kinder than suddenly exploding due to bottled up frustrations. Communicating more honestly not only makes you safer and better company – but the more you flex this muscle the more you will experience a greater sense of self-respect and being in charge of your own life.
