Feeling INVISIBLE In The Marketplace?
ANDILE KWAKWENI – EXECUTIVE COACH
Starting one’s own business can be a daunting and lonely process: I was beginning to feel this way when I stumbled across friendly, welcoming Ms. Pat Baiden. I had just resigned from full-time well-paying employment in pursuit of my childhood dream. One, I had a lot in my head in terms of what I wanted to do. Two, I had no direction in terms of how I was going to both crystalize and get my message (products & services) out to the world. Ms. Baiden made it all seem so simple; (after making me go to work to get a meaningful result) after about four sessions with her, I had my well-structured marketing message for my young business and in a week’s time, I will be officially live!
AVIWE MELANE – ENTREPRENEUR & MINDSET COACH
When I met Pat, my biggest need was to make my vision a reality; to find someone who would understand the gibberish that was my dream. Pat exceeded my expectations! If you know me, I am a perfectionist and I love to do things myself but the way Pat works, I was comfortable letting her do what she does best without the need to panic or have to step in. Honestly, what continues to stand out for me is how with every client, she gets the vision that you have and within minutes of sitting with her, she has a concept in mind. Three months into working with her, we launched my coaching business and my brand started gaining local and international visibility with client referrals and speaking invitations – and my business is growing stronger by the day. If you are looking to build a meaningful brand around your vision without compromising on profitability, work with Pat.
DR. NTANDO MANGISA – DENTIST
I really enjoyed working with Pat. She was able to take my thoughts and ideas and make them a reality. In the process, I learnt a lot about how to ‘brand’ my business – and that there is so much more that is available out there that I never paid attention to. We have built a website that I’m proud to show off, and we have had such great feedback from our clients. Pat is really an expert in her field of service.
AKHONA “SHEREF” MAKALIMA – FIFA REFEREE & WELLNESS COACH
I met Pat Baiden because I wanted a website, but after she unpacked her services, I knew I needed more than just a website. In just one session, she saw things about me that I couldn’t see about myself; she saw past Akhona the referee. Pat made me understand that I have the responsibility of creating opportunities for others – and that stuck with me. Before I worked with Pat, I had so many ideas but didn’t know where to start to implement them, but after our strategy session, she helped me unpack and package them meaningfully. Now I know my true worth and how to position myself to grow as a brand to achieve my goals and dreams. Pat has changed my life forever with her work. She injected so much energy in me to ensure that my legacy touches and transforms lives. Brand Me Authentic has really played a big role in helping me live my brand with authenticity. I certainly recommend Pat any day.
AYANDA BIKITSHA – ENTREPRENEUR
When you first meet Pat, she’s passionate about business. After the first meeting, she becomes passionate about you; she takes an interest in your life and your business. As an aspiring Entrepreneur, I was constantly in search of assistance to start my business. When Pat introduced herself and her services, I felt she was a God-sent as I had come to believe that it was impossible to find someone within the industry who was willing to assist others to start or grow their business. Pat doesn’t only advise or point you in the right direction; she actually holds your hand throughout and points out aspects of your business that you might not even be aware of. What I like about Pat’s services is that it covers every aspect of your business including staff recruitment and training, marketing your business, and your personal image to help you present yourself well as well as questionnaires to help you understand yourself better. It’s a bonus that she’s also an Image Consultant. After a session with Pat, you not only feel motivated and inspired, you actually feel like you can take on the world.
DR BJ MTHEMBU – AUTHOR & SOCIAL ENTREPRENEUR
Your work is always on another level. Your presentation was on point and my website is out of this world!
MERCY FRASER – SOCIAL ENTREPRENEUR
I needed someone to help me identify, differentiate, create & communicate an identity to my relevant audience. I learnt to respect the work Pat does as an expert and the boundaries she creates in order to be able to execute her work without fear or favour.
Indeed, she is exceptionally good at what she does and her level of efficiency and professionalism is unmatched!
Working with Pat is an eye-opening experience and a journey of self-discovery. She goes the extra mile to ensure that her work is superb. She gives selflessly when working to translate one’s vision into reality.
RICCY DURRHEIM – CLINICAL NURSE SPECIALIST
Pat is very professional. She works diligently to get things right so her work is of high quality. Thank you, Pat, for all you’re doing to promote MorHealth.
NOMFUSI MAGUGU – ENTREPRENEUR
Before working with Pat, my biggest need was marketing and reviving my business, as sales were low. I also needed to properly define my core business and service offerings in a simpler yet attractive way. After sessions of discussing and evaluating the entire value chain of my industry, we identified gaps that helped us to come up with a great model to restructure my business. I enjoyed working with Pat because she’s a visionary. She took the time to understand my vision and personality and connected that to what I wanted to achieve. Her passion for what she does is amazing, coupled with her spiritual values that always gives one hope and faith that things will work out. I don’t know how many times I felt like giving up, but with her positive attitude, I always got my boost. I’ll definitely recommend Pat to anyone.
LUNGI MPAMBANI – PASTOR
Pat helped me turn my vision into a profitable business model. It’s one thing to know your vision, have dreams or ideas but another to know the practical steps required in order to transform that idea into a profitable brand. Pat, thank you for providing a map and patiently journeying with me into a discovery of the goldmine hidden in me
NDILEKA MATSHINGANA – ENTREPRENEUR
I’ve known Pat since 2017 and we worked together to launch my Event Management business. When the pandemic hit and I decided to launch a business around my passion, I knew Pat was the person to go to. When I shared my vision and brief with her, she supported it 100% and we run with the concept. In just one month, she turned my idea into a profitable business brand and I started making sales even before we officially launched my online shop. What I like about working with Pat is that, she gets me. If you have ideas and don’t know how to make money from them, or if you want to build a brand quickly without running around to get things done, I highly recommend Pat.
BUSI TYISO-TYATYEKA – ENTREPRENEUR
My experience working with Pat was exceptional. She had so much passion for her work and exceeded my expectations. The excellent work she’s done is much appreciated. Will definitely recommend her any day, any time. Thank you for the excellent service.
WENDY TAYLOR – ENTREPRENEUR
I have found Pat to be very efficient, professional, accommodating, and friendly. It has been a pleasure doing business with her.
MISS VEE NGANTWENI – SOCIAL ENTREPRENEUR
A friend of mine introduced me to Pat because of my work and the fact that I had so many ideas and I did not know how to put them together. The first time I met Pat, I felt so revived spiritually, emotionally and mentally; she has a way of mixing her personal experiences with her professional work which made it easy for me to trust her and talk to her about anything. Pat helped me connect my work, my ideas and my purpose in a way that now, it all feels like one meaningful concept. We launched my brand and I’m now living my passion as a radio presenter and mentor, and I now feel very confident about approaching potential donors and sponsors for partnership opportunities for my foundation. Every session with Pat is reviving; she listens, guides and motivates. Knowing that she believes in me and my work gives me one more reason to keep going. Pat is a God-sent.
BUSI ADENIYI-ADEKANBI – ENTREPRENEUR
Working with Pat in setting up my business was a tremendous experience. From translating my vision into a business entity right down to branding and staff recruitment and training; the whole experience was unquantifiable. Today, Bespoque is a year old and counting—thanks a bunch Pat.
SIBONGILE TABATA – MANAGEMENT CONSULTANT
When I met Pat, I needed to digitalize my traditional company brochure and profile so as to have a web-based marketing system like a website and social media presence. Her impeccable business ethic made me comfortable that she will always deliver on her promises – and I’m never disappointed. What stands out about working with Pat is how she’s able to articulate one’s vision and get the message across in a way that achieves the intended results. Since working with her to build and manage my website, I’ve had countless enquiries about my services and managed to secure partners and work relationships from far and wide. I would not hesitate to recommend Pat to anyone who wants to build or grow their brand.
BUKEKA MZAMO-MDLALO – LIFE STRATEGIST
Thank you, Pat, for being a blessing to small businesses. Thank you for being patient and extremely honest with me at all times. I have learned so much from working with you and I look forward to learning more. You are a blessing to the economy of EC & RSA and I pray that as we prosper through your guidance, you will receive a double portion.
You keep reminding me that we’re not done yet but what we’ve achieved so far, I’m grateful. Thank you once more for being a blessing.
ABIGAIL NYEZWA-MVUNELO – ENTREPRENEUR
I’d like to thank Pat for such a wonderful and professional service she’s rendered. She took me through a program called “Passion To Profit” to help me turn my passion for Clothing and Events into a profitable business. As a young businesswoman, I have benefited a lot from this program and I think it is a great tool for entrepreneurs.
Pat is kind and selfless: through the journey of building your business, she puts herself in your shoes and goes all out to make sure that your business idea is realized. It’s been a lifesaver having Pat on my side and I’ll definitively recommend her to others. Thank you, Pat and God richly bless you.
SISANDA MHLONTLO – ENTREPRENEUR
I registered my company years back, but I couldn’t really focus on it so there was nothing happening at all. When I met Pat, she made me realize I had neglected my passion. There’s life in my business now since I started working with her – my vision is much brighter and clearer. She assists me all the way, whenever I’m unclear about something. I’m just grateful to have someone like her who is professional, friendly and available to communicate with anytime. My brand is coming together beautifully because of her great and dedicated work. Good luck with the great work ahead.
KWANDE “SKWARA” CAKATA – JAZZ SAXOPHONIST
Pat is a very chilled person and I enjoy working with her. She’s thorough, professional and straight-forward; if she can make it happen, she will and if she can’t shell let you know right away. Working with Pat has been amazing and I look forward to growing my brand with Brand Me Authentic.
