Born and raised in South Africa with British roots, and having traveled and worked in 44 countries, Linda is wife to Jan, Mom to Jamie and Paige, and a Confidence Coach who teaches women self-confidence, self-esteem, and the power of personal style.
Linda cites her role on Nelson Mandela's PR and Communications team in 1998 as one of her major career highlights.

With a powerful story of overcoming an abusive childhood and investing many years in her personal and professional development, Linda is passionate about empowering her clients with tools and strategies to help them live a confident, bold, and beautiful life. By teaching a biblical perspective on a woman's identity, body, and internal and external beauty, her coaching program helps women to simplify and systemize their closets and learn simple but powerful style skills that boost confidence, influence, and income. This powerful, practical coaching has transformed lives all over the world. But the secret sauce to Linda’s program is how she teaches women to fall in love with the woman in the mirror. The LindaPaige woman is committed to getting up, dressing up and being a bold light on a hill.
Linda is equally passionate about investing in the community and regards this as a responsibility that has her frequently involved in raising funds for charitable organizations. Having returned to South Africa in 2019 after 20 years abroad, she is dedicated to rebuilding and restoring people and homes in her country. A woman who walks her talk and challenges her own confidence, in August 2022, Linda broke a bungee jumping Guinness World Record at Bloukrans Bridge, South Africa. She now holds the Guinness World Record title for the most bungee jumps (23) in 1 hour.
A passionate and tenacious woman, Linda's loves are faith, family, food and fashion, and a dash of bold red lipstick!

We had the privilege of financially supporting King's Ransom for many years through our business, an organization that we highly recommend if you are looking to tithe your money that it actually reaches the poor, the orphan, and those in need, versus going primarily to staff overheads. With a corporate sponsor in place, King’s Ransom ensures 100% of donations reach the people in need.
