Hi, I’m Francisca Payne – owner of Qualified To Win – a mentoring, training & personal development business that helps female leaders to confidently and boldly walk in their own truth so that they can live the life they are meant to live and be happy. My mission is to enlighten, encourage and empower them to improve their lives and experience freedom through personal growth.
Let me tell you a little bit about my journey….
In 2013, I was at my lowest point in life – I was giving up on myself and on a potential better future. I was setting up my own escort business and had men and women who were ready to work for me. And even though I knew deep within myself that I was created to do something else, I threw in the towels and went into this direction.
It was an encounter I had with God that changed the direction of my life in that same year. The first thing I realized I had to do was to change my way of thinking. In fact, I got born-again and started developing a new mentality, which I now call a winning mentality. It started changing everything for me in rapid speed.
I started studying again and passed for my Basic Business Management exams within six months, after living in Belgium for a year and a few months. When I realized that I had writing skills, I wrote the content of my first book, called Be A Winner, in two weeks time and moved to the United Kingdom a few months later.
I self-published my book within a year and gave my first Self-Confidence Boost workshop within six months while I was still trying to settle in the UK. And even though English isn’t my first language (Dutch is), I managed to create success on my new entrepreneurial path within a short period of time.
One year after my first book, I self-published two success journals within a few months time. And when I saw that my 10-years old son also had the same skills, I helped him to self-publish his first children’s book called The Party Crashers – within just a few months. His accomplishment didn’t stay unknown: he had his first interview within a few weeks with a journalist of the The Voice, which is the only British national Afro-Caribbean weekly newspaper operating in the United Kingdom since 1982. As a result of that he received a call from Potential Unlocked Tuition in Birmingham with an invitation to receive an award for his accomplishment.
My books are now a source of inspiration in Christian communities all over the world. Pastors, deacons and church members all use my books during bible studies, church services, women events and even book clubs. In 2018 I published another book called ‘7 Steps To Your Calling’, of which I sold 68 copies within the first four weeks!
I continued to study and am now a Certified Belief Clearing Practitioner via Joe Vitale. This qualification allows me to help you uncovers the beliefs, blocks, behaviors, habits and patterns of thinking that stop you from creating the success you want. And by using a couple of different reprogramming techniques I help you to remove those blocks and replace them with the ones that serve you much better.
Not only did I help aspiring authors to also write and self-publish their own books, I have also worked with female entrepreneurs and helped them overcome their emotional and mental blocks, such as fears and doubts. My straight-to-the point (typically Dutch) approach, my deep understanding of how to connect with your true self and of how to stretch your mindset help all my clients to become more confident, bold and fearless.
When in 2020 my life completely changed again, because of finding out that my dad is not my dad but that another family member is, I had to allow myself and my life to change again and move into a new direction.
From working with entrepreneurs and authors, I transitioned to working with female leaders who are all on a journey of becoming who they always wanted to be, doing what they always wanted to do and having what they always wanted to have. Yes, I help them to fully walk in their own truth and be unapologetic!
