I THOUGHT I WAS RIGHT...
IN THE BUSINESS WORLD
executives strive for the smallest advantage over their competitors and other market players. But how far will some entrepreneurs and corporate leaders go to gain that advantage? The answer: pretty far, if you consider the emergence of business intuitives.
Trisha Holdengarde, South Africa’s only known business intuitive, says she can profile any person using just a name without researching, meeting or talking to anyone who knows him/her. Holdengarde, a business intuitive for eight years, has clients from entrepreneurs to medium-sized companies with deals of R20m or more.
“I’ve advised clients on all kinds of transactions: mergers, acquisitions, partnerships, joint ventures, marketing, new business development, hiring decisions and even wage negotiations,” says Holdengarde.
“All of us have a natural ability to use our intuition but most of us just don’t know how. But it’s like muscle: if we don’t exercise it becomes difficult to use.”
Holdengarde says that companies worldwide are increasingly using intuitives to make better business decisions every day. Probably the most famous business intuitive is Lynn A Robinson, in the US, who has built an empire consulting to various corporations, writing books and running seminars throughout the US on how to build intuition.
