Larissa Pretorious,  Episode #111

Meet Larissa Pretorius today!

Larissa is rocking her new business, growing her dreams, her abundance, and making incredible changes, not just in her life, but also her students and clients!  The time of Covid kicked her into gear to go after her creative ideas and she has skyrocketed and produced programs to empower young women that will blow your mind. She blew mine with such great ideas, and the fact that she did them, She did not let the pandemic stop her. She is building a tribe of ‘tween girls on her island of Tasmania, Australia…GirlPower Tribe..to help these young girls and teach them how to love themselves, to teach them tribal bellydance, which is a community style of dance, to teach them how to share and talk with each other, and so much more.

We talk about what being in a group coaching program (my Mastermind) has supported her for the past 10 months, held her accountable, inspired her. She allowed her ideas, and her own daughter, to motivate her and make things happen. She has already designed, produced, and had printed a deck of affirmation cards for the girls too, which are fantastic. With a workbook coming soon. Her vision continues to grow and what she has to offer these young women is revolutionary!

Have a watch and a listen and share what you think…

Larissa writes about being in my coaching program: “I was looking for a way to do something more authentic that I felt passionate about. I had felt this way for almost my whole working life but was scared to give up the safe income, to trust that I could make it. I was also pretty vague about my direction. The support from this group has lifted me up and pushed me forward. I have faced personal baggage I have ignored for years and it has left me lighter and clearer on my path”


More about Larissa:

Larissa Pretorius is the founder of GirlPower Tribe. She is passionate about empowering women and more particularly girls through dance and discussion. She lives on King Island, a small island in the Bass Strait between Tasmania and mainland Australia. She currently teaches Global Caravan Tribal Belly dance to the women and girls. Drawing on over 25 years’ experience, teaching and facilitating with the Education department of Western Australia as an Early Childhood teacher, Currculum Officer, Literacy Specialist, Peer Mentor and school leader, Larissa has recently created the GirlPower Tribe Affirmation deck and Guidebook as a powerful tool to build self-confidence and inner strength. She draws her inspiration from her experience as mother to four kids aged 8 – 20 years, and most particularly her daughter Selene. She believes strongly in creating a sense of “tribe” and belonging amongst her dance students and created GIrlPower Tribe as a way to deepen connections for younger students. GirlPower Tribe is a space for women and girls to be a part of a circle. We are committed to raising up ourselves and others through discussion and friendship. Larissa says, “With positive affirmation, movement, and fun, together let’s develop inner strength and resilience!”




Isn’t this so powerful and exciting and inspired? I love to see creatives following their dreams and hearts and bring such goodness to others which empowers them too! What do you think, my friend?  Let us know what this inspires for you, and thanks for being here..
