Linda Potgieter (pronounced Pot-ghee-ter) is wife to Jan and home schooling Mom to Jamie & Paige. She is also partner & director of a global training firm specialising in negotiation skills, and Founder of LindaPaige – a fashion brand that empowers and equips men and women to get up, dress up be a bold light on a hill.
Born and raised in South Africa, Linda’s 29-year career until 2018 has taken her across 38 countries, introduced her to many cross-cultural opportunities, exposed her to both the corporate world and the life of an entrepreneur, and brought life changing privileges such as working on former President Nelson Mandela’s PR and Communications team.
When she’s not building her business or traveling with her family, she is ticking off bucket list items from adventure sports to sampling food, drink and shopping across the globe. She passionately pursues change – in her home and in her business – and cites her Coach & Mentor, Dani Johnson, for inspiring and equipping her to launch her childhood dream of starting her own fashion business.
Linda gives ultimate glory to her God – her Father in heaven – for restoring her from a life of self-hate, rejection and brokenness, and guiding her into a life of love, acceptance and adventure. It is this personal experience that inspired her to launch the campaign ‘I LOVE MY BODY’, helping women to see their true beauty – inside and out – and to raise the next generation to lead with love.
Linda is using her fashion expertise to fight human trafficking and take care of the poor by partnering with King’s Ransom Foundation – so when you purchase any products from LindaPaige, 90% of the profits of your purchase goes directly to this organisation that feeds, clothes and houses victims of poverty and slavery all over the world.
