In her new book, Wounds to Wisdom, Orane tells the remarkable story of her journey from fear to financial freedom.
Raised on the island of Mauritius, Orane was one of eight children. Her family immigrated to Sydney, Australia when Orane was ten.
Instead of being a wonderful new experience, it was daunting and at times terrifying. She was bullied at school, had to learn to read and write English, and suffered with attention disorders. Ultimately, this led to an upbringing based on low self-esteem.
She married at 21, had four children, and was abandoned by her husband which triggered episodes of depression and anxiety. After years of adversity, her self-esteem was near-bottom and something snapped inside her. She had no one to rely on, nowhere to turn – except inward.
In her reality of survival mode, she made some dramatic changes in her life. She adopted a spirit of self-discipline, dug herself out of financial destitution and made tremendous strides in overcoming her self-esteem issues. This began a turnaround that would see her become a successful real estate investor and developer, entrepreneur and self-made millionaire.
