Answer: I am an entrepreneur. I own SAAAC Campus in Komani and I am a director of the national group, which I co-founded in 2013.
I also own SA Academic Sales, hiring and sales of graduation attire, as well as Marketing PRO, a social media agency.
I am inspired by people who, no matter their upbringing, go beyond life’s challenges to succeed.
A: I would like to do more upliftment, and business coaching. My dreams/ideas never end.
A: Any business book. I also read Farmer’s Weekly and Woman & Home magazines.
A: I would encourage the youth in many ways and try to urge them to enter the self-employment field.
There are so many opportunities out there. A small idea can build a business, even if you just employ yourself. It’s a great start.
A: Everything! I am surrounded by family who I can “bounce” ideas off, who encourage me. I have some very close friends who I really value, and enjoy spending time with.
A: We need to encourage entrepreneurship. People need to realise that you do not need a lot of money or to be “rich” to be selfemployed and get started.
A: Do not be lazy. If making a life for yourself means waking up at 3am to work, do it! Speak to people about your passions and dreams, as doors open this way. Life is hard, and you will go through hard times, whether financially or other ways, but keep going and trying – never give up.
A: Yes, I love SA. Our weather is great and the contrast between sea and mountains is amazing.
The diverse cultures are so interesting and we should embrace our country more.
