Her passion, drive and commitment to making it in the music industry ultimately birthed a whole new career, and in the process, she is helping others achieve their dreams.

Music came naturally to Verity Price. She had been doing introspection on her career choice while she was a student, studying psychology at the University of Cape Town (UCT). On her 20th birthday, she found herself at Noordhoek Beach, inspired to write and by the end, she realised, she had penned a song complete with verses and a chorus.

“I started working as a professional singer in 2003 and I have been a professional speaker since 2007. My music lead me into inspiring people on what could be possible for them and how to think differently about the problems in their lives,” says Price.

In 2005, with a desire to make her first album, Price was faced with a major financial hurdle. “Recording my album would have cost R300 000 and I did not have the money. So like any small business owner or like anyone with a big dream, I was faced with a huge obstacle standing in the way of where I wanted to be,” says Price.

Tired of blaming others and being a victim of circumstance, Price decided it was time to look at alternate solutions and drew on the forward-thinking of a film director, Tim Green, coupled with the teachings of a self-help book. “I asked people to go onto my website and buy my album before I recorded it. Eventually, I sold 2 000 copies of nothing in 25 countries. I raised R300 000, donated 10% to charity, 5% to People Opposing Women Abuse and 5% went to other musicians to help them to start their careers,” says Price. “It was very unusual at the time because it was before ‘crowdfunding’ was a word and before social media. It went viral in many senses because I don’t know how people were hearing about me. It took a few years but it worked and I became one of the world’s first crowd funders. People were interested in the forward-thinking approach,” she says.

Applying these techniques is what gave Price the edge and she now uses her own experiences to teach people how to think differently and live their best, happiest lives. Price will also be sharing this with the ladies at the Perfectly Posh High Tea, presented by People’s Post and Spec-Savers. Price has worked with many high profile companies and will offer each attendee a 21-day experience aimed at implementing the principles she teaches in her talks, valued at R350 per person.
