The Rep - - EDITORIAL OPINION -

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.
