Meet Shimanga – A Member Of The Life Retreat Team

When Trish asked me to put my bio together, my heart skipped a few beats. I love writing but I must say writing a bio is very tricky.  I say this because I know how painful it is to read a long boring bio. So, I’ll try not speak in third person as I tell you a little bit about myself.

My short story

When I started trading forex, it was very hard to find information online. When I did find something, it was either confusing or difficult to read. A few years later, I stumbled upon a book about blogging. I didn’t know anything about blogging but after reading that book, I started my own blog. I knew there had to be someone out there that needed to know how to trade forex without all the jargon. This unlocked a love for writing I never knew I had.

Everything started to happen very fast. At the time, I worked for a health research advisory organisation, where I spent a lot of time researching natural health alternatives. It was during this time that a blood pressure health scare led me to write a book – Defeat High Blood Pressure.

Who is Shimanga Mubitana?

I’m a full time forex trader, a farmer and a part time content manager. I love to live healthy… I love heels and I love to write. I’m a mother, a wife and a student. I have two boys, so I’ll share some of my experiences with you. No, I’m not a doctor but I’ll give you health tips. I’m not a financial advisor but I’ll tell you about good investment opportunities. Farming is my passion. So, I’ll give you great gardening tips.

You can be whoever you want to be and I hope to inspire you one article at a time.
