Hi, I’m Sunniva. Welcome!
I live in Auckland New Zealand in my dream home with my husband Mathieu and 5 year old daughter Lily. I’m a self made multi millionaire, author of two No.1 best selling self help & motivation books, speaker, serial entrepreneur & mindset coach. I frequently travel internationally, speaking, running frequently sold out programs and workshops. I am also known as Queen Fire, because of my unique gift to ignite people’s inner fire and help them fully step into their power.
I’m living the life I could only have dreamed of a few years ago, but it has taken a lot of hard work, determination and deep transformational work to get here from my humble beginnings.
I grew up in the remote Pelorus Sounds, one of the few remaining isolated parts of New Zealand. It was 3 hours from the nearest town or city and our nearest neighbours were more than 2km away. I was the second oldest of 10 children, my family were fundamentalist Christian with some quite extreme religious views. There was no trust of the school system, the government, the medical system, the police, of very little outside our little bubble. We were homeschooled using a very strict religious program. We weren’t allowed to listen to music, watch TV, cut our hair, wear clothing that didn’t cover us modestly, or have friends who were not from the same religion. There were physical punishments for doing any of those things. For someone who was born with rebel blood coursing through their veins all I wanted was to grow up so I could escape and not have anyone telling me what to do, so I put all my intention into making that happen
At the age of 15 I hustled hard and did whatever I could for very little pay until I had the money I needed to get myself to high school – something my parents did not want me to do, and was a real challenge as we lived hours away from a city so I had to board with another family. This was one of many pivotal moments in my life that taught me if I wanted something, I could make it happen and I went on to prove that to myself time and time again. I bought my first property when I was 19 and continued to build on that through hard work, hustle, sheer determination and repeatedly investing in myself.
From that point (as well as working many menial jobs, traveling the world, going through many steep learning curves and having all kinds of challenges along the way!) I created several successful 6+ figure businesses but what I’m most passionate about is helping humans step into their power and manifest their dream life and business.
