I’m Toks Ayinla,
A consultant, speaker, & poet
devoted to helping you accomplish
I speak with the boldness of someone who knows their stuff, because I do.
Who do I think I am? A woman who is determined to operate in my full potential while actively empowering others to do the same. I believe in unapologetically shaking tables and in bold self-promotion. I believe in unapologetically shaking tables and bold self-promotion. What sets me apart is that I’m committed to learning and I’m willing to do excellent work consistently. My discipline and near excessive drive for growth has allowed me to become a leading ED&I specialist and a top corporate strategist. I have an Honours Double Major in Psychology and Economics, a Professional Certificate in Public Administration & Public Law, as well as a Solutions-Focused Brief Therapy & Counselling Certificate; I’m what you’d call a forever student. Doers do things, and I get things done! Is it a lot? Maybe. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.
"If you take the energy you put into him and put it into yourself, you'll be great"
This was the statement that I heard and wrote down as I was in the middle of a God, please make it stop journaling session at the lowest point in my life. When life makes takes you to a dark place and you hear words of hope, every single part of you conspires in agreement because anything is better than being stuck. I’ve seen rock bottom; I’ve been depressed, lost, heartbroken, and $30,000 in debt. But from rock bottom, I’ve been able to build the life of my dreams. I’ve written a best selling poetry book, become a sought after speaker, and an executive coach.
I’m living an incredible life because I made a decision and put in consistent work to make it a reality. My purpose is to empower you to do the same, to trust that no matter what you’re facing, better still remains. I’m here to serve. If you’re looking for positivity, strategy, motivation, advice, and more, you’re in the right place. I’m building a community of focused, purpose-driven people who want better and are ready to put in the work to get it; I’d love for you to join me!
"Rock bottom is the perfect spot to start building the life of your dreams"
