About Me

A little bit about myself and the blog

That’s me!

Hey there,

My name is Sibo Hlabangana. I’ll also answer to African Queen, if you feel like being kind:-)

In brief, I’m a 36 year old who’s been inspired, motivated and empowered by not only people but books as well. I’m a dreamer who is a motivational speaker, writer and lawyer. Until I started following my dreams a few years ago, I was not a happy camper but everything changed when the way I saw the world changed, when my attitude changed and I started to dream big. I’d like to see everyone pursue their dreams and live a passion filled life, hence this blog.

Maybe you’re already living your dream, or maybe like me you’re still finding your way in the world, whatever the case may be, this is a space where you can join me in inspiring and motivating each other and those around us. I know it’s probably better to hear from someone who has achieved a lot but sometimes it doesn’t hurt to hear from a dreamer. Who knows, maybe one day you’ll read about something I’ve achieved and think, oh I remember her. Or better yet, we’ll be having a cup of coffee reminiscing about the good old days before all our dreams came true. Wouldn’t that be great?

You’ll find the blog is set up into 6 sections. One is on books that have inspired me to follow my dreams and to continually grow as an individual. There’s also a section on dreams, here things like having a vision for your life, dreaming big and mentor-ship will be discussed. Another section is on God, faith and anything to do with my spiritual journey because that has played, and continues to play a big part in the pursuit of my dreams. The next section is on vision sharing and I hope you’ll add to it by sharing your vision boards or vision letters and success stories through emailing me. The section after that is on my books, which are available on Amazon. The last section is on how to book me for your event and has examples of events I’ve spoken at. Now read on and hopefully be inspired. (You can expect at least one post per week, every Monday)

Cheers, Sibo.

If you still want to know a little bit more…

I think I’m funny but not many people agree:-)

When I was about 6 years old, I got chucked out of the school choir because I couldn’t sing. It hurt but it was true. What they didn’t know is that I would later discover karaoke.

My favorite poem is The Invitation by Oriah Mountain Dreamer.

My favorite spoken word is I will wait for you by Janette…Ikz.

I prefer certain numbers like 3, 5, 15 and dislike some to the extent that I have to change the volume on the TV or car radio so I don’t have to see them.

I love reading. When I discovered a love of reading, I used to dream of being locked in the library so I could just read forever.

I currently live in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.

Finally, I believe turning to God when I was lost was the best decision I’ve ever made. You know those irritating people who put up profile pictures with things like “I can’t keep calm because I love God?” I’m one of them. Don’t ask how it happened because I used to be the first one to vilify them. Shows you how much God has worked in me.

Be blessed, Sibo.
