I love actualizing potential:

taking people’s intangible dreams and turning them into practical realities with

Timelines, Teams, Tech solutions and Tool-kits.


It’s delightful alchemy, transmuting nothing to something.

And I know how to do it.

Modern day magic is my vibe!


I’ve experienced that our personal and professional lives are inextricably linked.

Malva is a direct extension of who I am. It’s evolved as I have.

After selling my business at 26, I created Malva in 2010 to be #morethanjustonething.

From a showcase store of South African designers to marketing services to an Academy that helps women birth their businesses. 

For the new age, Seahorse men – I’m here for you too!

But, I’m choosing to only consult people whose businesses and brands will have massive impact improving the lives of others.

Service brands with creative integrity that add value to the world.

That’s what I’m interested in, so that’s what I do.


I’ve worked as an associate and pitch coach with 20 Startup teams as part of the Techstars programs in 2016 and 2017,

been a global curator for Collaborative Consumption,

launched CoworkingSA and gocowork app,

judged for Startup Chilli,

spoken at multiple events about principles from my first book, Human Doing

and coached hundreds of people.


When we clear the chaos and clutter of our mind, we’re able to connect with our core of creativity,

(our source), and channel that into comprehensive service offerings.

When we set crystal clear intentions, we’re able the magically manifest beyond our wildest dreams.

That’s my plan. Watch this space!


I love Doers in life, fellow alchemists who produce magical solutions from the desire to help others.

I believe the future is collaborative and that doing what you love is about enjoying the process.

I’ve realized that real is always better than perfect and I’ve learned how to revel in my perfuction.

Personally, I’m a writer and artist. If you’re interested in my passion project, click here.


Love, Lauren
