Joshna’s journey to becoming a business coach

Joshna Daya is an accomplished woman, coach and speaker who grew up in South Africa, and has called Australia home for the last 25 years. 

No stranger to difficult times, having grown up with the social and political unrest in South Africa, I have developed an inherent belief that if she works diligently, she’d be able to succeed ahead of her own expectations. In 1995, she made an all-important yet difficult choice to immigrate to Australia and build a career that set her on the path to be a leading Australian business coach.

A business coach who can help you achieve amazing results

With over 10+ years’ experience in coaching and developing SMEs, Joshna is determined to help clients comprehend the truths of their business. 

With experience in the wealth advisory sector before embarking her career as a business coach, Joshna now works with privately held businesses with $1M - $20M turnover and 4+ employees. Together with Greg Gunther, she co-founded Your Business Momentum, a successful business providing coaching and consulting services for business owners who are:

  • Stuck in the day-to-day operations of the business
  • Losing passion in business and feeling unclear of the next steps
  • Having trouble attracting and keeping quality staff or not getting the best from their team
  • Making little to no profit and worried about cash flow
  • Not measuring real performance of the business or the team

Over the years, they have developed a range of services to

  1. Provide clear strategic direction with a proven way to implement strategy.
  2. Get very clear on the metrics we need to measure and monitor regularly.
  3. Have the systems and processes needed that provide complete business reliability.
  4. Set up a cadence of accountability to get things done.
  5. Grow and develop leadership teams to take reliance away from the owners.

On a mission to impact

Joshna was proudly part of the 1994 election of South African President Nelson Mandela. She was a vote counter who spent 7 days and 7 nights counting votes to realise one of the greatest events in history - the first ever democratic election in South Africa.

As a business owner herself, together with being a busy mum, she knows first-hand the blood, sweat, and tears that business owners put into their business every day and it is her mission to help them live a more enjoyable life. She loves to share her knowledge and expertise through speaking, workshops and coaching to help business owners break free from the daily grind of business life and to live a life that they love.

What people say about working with Joshna

What people say about working with Joshna

Highly recommend Joshna for business coaching and business visioning. Joshna offers a wealth of experience and understanding to work with business owners to set strategic direction as well as assisting to identify areas for improvement. Joshna took the time to understand our business and assisted with helping us to implement plans and processes for the coming years.

We engaged Joshna to provide us with the required focus and direction to develop a strategy for our business. Running a business can be tough with no one to support you especially when making significant business decisions. Indeed, it’s a great thing to know that not only someone genuinely cares about how you are doing but also know exactly what to say or do to help you. Not many people have the wisdom and passion on what they do, and Joshna seemed to have it in her. Her experience in business is clearly delineated by the way she conducts herself and the focus and knowledge she is able to impart.

Joshna Daya from Your Business Momentum has greatly contributed to the growth of our Psychology and Behaviour Support Practice. She has also assisted with my own personal growth as a business leader. Over the last 4 years,I can hand on heart say, I have leaned heavily on Joshna’s knowledge, skill, support and mentoring. I am now less reliant on her which is also testament to her coaching ability. Joshna is a person of integrity and professionalism and I can highly recommend her as a business coach/mentor. You will not regret engaging her services!
