Joshna’s journey to becoming a business advisor and mentor

Joshna Daya is an accomplished business woman, advisor, mentor and speaker who grew up in South Africa, and has called Australia home for almost 30 years. 

No stranger to difficult times, having grown up with the social and political unrest in South Africa, she has 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 strategy implementation specialist who can help you achieve real results

With 15 years of experience working with organisations to create strategy and implement it, Joshna firmly believes that strategy and execution go together and through focused implementation comes real results. She is passionate about helping businesses get traction.

With experience in the wealth advisory sector before embarking her career as a business advisor and coach, Joshna now works with privately held businesses with $5M+ turnover. Together with Greg Gunther, she co-founded Your Business Momentum, a premium professional services firm helping business leaders and 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

  • Provide clear strategic direction with a proven way to implement strategy.
  • Get very clear on the metrics we need to measure and monitor regularly.
  • Have the systems and processes needed that provide complete business reliability.
  • Set up a cadence of accountability to get things done.
  • 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 leaders 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 mentoring to help organisations create a clear strategy and implement it.
