HENEKA WATKIS – PORTER
Hi, I’m Heneka Watkis-Porter. I am a serial-entrepreneur, author, fashion designer, speaker, and podcaster. Currently, my home is in Jamaica, where I live with my husband Adolph. My personal journey is a testament to the power of self-belief, determination, resilience and the miracles of God.
Raised in the rural parish of Jamaica (St. Mary) by grandparents, I was born to a teenage mum and an absentee father. Prior to my birth, my maternal grandmother would often utter piercing and destructive words to my mom, “a wish wen di pickney a bawn it tun crass way an kill yuh”, for example.
As if that wasn’t enough, with no support from the man who was equally responsible for my mom being in that state and with very little family support, whilst in the delivery room where everyone became anxious and excited at the same time, she was asked by a nurse, “What’s all the fuss about? It’s just a baby!”
My life wasn’t a bed of rose as they say. But who cares? I’m determine as hell to succeed at all that I do. I don’t care about my circumstance as child. Nothing in my past can hinder my present. I’m the epitome of determination, courage and resilience.
I speak on topics such as ‘finding your purpose’, ‘living your best life now’, alleviating limiting beliefs, entrepreneurship among others.
As an entrepreneur advocate, I enjoy sharing my experiences to empower others who are desirous of becoming entrepreneurs. My books include:
15 Hints to Entrepreneurial Success: Lessons From A Caribbean Business Woman;
Motivate Inspire Provoke;
Sermon Notes: A 52-Week Devotional for Quiet Meditation.
A nature enthusiast who can’t have enough of the beach, I enjoy traveling and meeting people who are different. China, France, England, Germany, Mexico, Paraguay, Panama, Antigua, Barbados, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, St. Maarten are some of the places that I have visited.
I am looking forward to knowing mowre about you. Do let me know how I may serve you.
