About Me

Hello Lovely! I am Destiny Brown entrepreneur, speaker, blogger. I am passionate about helping women develop a business mind and grow in their careers and daily life. Here is a bit about me.

Back to where it all started

Some background on me: I am Jamaica-born now living in Toronto. I grew up in Montego-Bay, Jamaica and later migrated. My love for writing and travel turned into my blog A Sophisticated Chic, where I shared my scribblings and later travel and lifestyle tips.

I grew up poor in Jamaica and I felt as though I didn’t have many opportunities. So if ever I wanted to be something more than what was expected of me then I would have to create it. That’s what I set out to do, at 17 years old when I got my first “official” job. 

Starting my work life at 17 was not a walk in the park at all and I didn’t discover my calling answering phones for E-Services International. It was a Fight. Several dead-end jobs, living with friends, moving from place to place. Life just seemed like a never-ending battle. 

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Let’s take an adventure

Then in 2010 I decided to hell with it all, this doesn’t seem to be working I need to discover something more. So, I travelled out of Jamaica. This trip was a defining moment for me and I realized that I wanted this to be a part of my life. Without being sure of how I would accomplish that in 2011 I set out to travel through South America and learn Spanish. 

Manifest - About Me

Buoy oh buoy was I in for a surprise! I was a store attendant, a waitress, and a babysitter at sitter at some point or the other during my discovery of South America. Until I met this American in Columbia and we got to talking and he told me how he was able to travel consistently by teaching English online. He gave some advice as to what course I needed to prepare myself and created a couple of profiles for me to get started. 

Work on yourself first!

I took this a little further and got myself qualified as a Toefl instructor, Tesol and CELTA certified. This opened so many doors for me and things started to fall into place. By 2014 I had taught English in so many places both physical and virtual. 

In 2014 I returned to Jamaica a reconnected with a young lady I knew years before and this meeting changed my life! Her lifestyle, goals, work ethic and everything that she was making happen in her life encouraged me and suddenly I could be more. My faith was renewed, I revisited my plans, my goals and decided I was going to start actively creating the life I wanted. Which was a life of freedom, time freedom, financial freedom, breaking generational curses and building a real legacy for my family! Just in case you were wondering.

Now fast forward six years later and buoy has it been a wild ride! During that time Flamme Nue (Scented Products), OT virtual Solutions (virtual assistant company), A Sophisticated Chic (my blog) were all built by me. The Lord blessed me to travel to almost 40 countries and every day in every way I am getting better and better. 

My experience has taught me the power of influence, association, and dreams. So I walk into my calling with no doubts whatsoever ready and willing to be that voice, that influence, the person that helps other women like me find their way to creating a life to be lived on their terms.
