The turning point: Riza reached her own turning point when she realised that following rules her entire life didn't make her happy: an abusive relationship, becoming a young widow and mother, it all made her take control of her life once and forever; and she's motivated to help you turn your own story and inspire a positive change so you can own your future.

Victim to Victor (V2V) Blueprint: We all have victim mindset based on personal experience that stop us from achieving our full potential. Here Riza created a blueprint on how to find your own voice, becoming victor and living your life by your own set of rules.

Riza is an all-in risk-taker, women's advocate and a piece of living evidence that overcoming fear and eliminating victimhood mindset are the breaking point to achieve something extraordinary.

Working with Riza, you’ll shift your perspective in life and own it, so you know that your future is forever in your hands.
