Careeta Robert-Green is a young UK entrepreneur who graduated with a sociology degree from Kingston Uni. After uni she trained as a life coach, becoming one of the UK’s youngest certified Life Coach. Whilst training as a life coach she saw a distinct lack of confidence or motivation to succeed in life in many young people; especially after the recent economic downturn filling newspaper pages with doom and gloom, what with the increase in unemployment and rise in tuition fees.
Careeta wanted to 'spread a positive message that we all have special skills, talents and GIFTS that we can use to help us to be successful.'
This led her to start her own company Born with a GIFT. The professional training and coaching company was set up to help empower, motivate and inspire young people, specifically between the age of 11 and 30 years old.
She started the company in January 2010 and later that year was nominated for the Young Entrepreneur and Best Start up Business of the year for the Precious Awards.
She has always been passionate about self enhancement and assisting people to fulfil their dreams and so starting this businesses was natural progression for her. She had previously done voluntary work for almost 3 years working with youngsters. After that she worked at EMC organising IT training sessions. So she has taken her previous experiences and can call upon them for her own company.
Starting her own business was a big step away from previously working for a large company but she managed to gain inspiration from other entrepreneurs and the more she works with other top entrepreneurs the more she is learning.
She lives by the philosophy “Who said I can’t?” and works to spread a message that we are all Born with a GIFT.
