Meet Joyce Bartels Daal of Excelherate by Joyce

Today we’d like to introduce you to Joyce Bartels Daal.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I am a change agent. My role in life is to create a social disruption for the better. I am here to help people grow and become happier with themselves. The roots of Excelherate started when my company worked with other companies to enrich staff, especially women. Women in the workplace are disproportionally represented in key leadership positions. I saw how through coaching I can change lives. I changed mine. I learned how to be a better listener and to help people by asking the right questions. I coached groups, individuals and I focused mostly on women in leadership positions since I want to contribute to their growth.

I am constantly learning, facilitating, and being an active participant in my community. Back when I was living in Aruba, I started a political party to help shape the future of the island. I decided to use my position of influence to empower women, I put women in leadership on the national agenda and made women aware of the fact that globally, we are not where we are supposed to be. That we need to support each other to grow the numbers of us in leadership positions. Excelherate is the movement stemming from everything I’ve experienced. It is a way for me to support women, to help get us to leadership positions because the world needs us now more than ever. I want to leave a legacy.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The companies and organizations in the Caribbean I worked with put me in contact with the hard facts of life. The fact that women in the workplace are not in enough decision making positions. There was not enough input from women used to shape and change policies. On a larger scale, not enough women are in government. I was constantly reminded of this shortcoming but was not really clear on what to do with this knowledge but I knew the answer would come to me. Regardless, through the adversity, I never backed down or quieted my voice.

Please tell us about Excelherate by Joyce.
Excelherate started as a coaching system meant for individuals and groups to use to get that extra nudge to the finish line. It has evolved into a global movement stressing the importance of every person’s inherent right to success and happiness, both which are very attainable. The principles of Excelherate are Energy, Confidence, Enrichment, Love, Humility, Empowerment, Resilience, Ambition, Thoughtfulness, and Ethics.

When strengthened and set towards a purpose, these principles can guide you towards reaching any goal! I’m proud of this movement as a whole because it is inclusive. I want to see women succeed, but the big picture is for the global population to succeed and be happy. Excelherate is unique in that it isn’t about one formula or one key to success. Excelherate is the lifestyle of success and happiness.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
I know this sounds cliché but I wouldn’t change anything. If anything went differently, I wouldn’t be where I am today, with the passion for my purpose. Life isn’t about regrets. It’s about learning and growing and being comfortable in your own skin, flaws and all.
