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.

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. 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.
