WHO I AM

En­tre­pre­neur, au­thor and mo­ti­va­tional speaker who hails from Centurion, Pretoria.

THIS IS WHAT I DO

I have busi­ness in­ter­ests in dif­fer­ent sec­tors such as mar­ket­ing, in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy and agri­cul­ture. I am the founder and MD of a Google-cer­ti­fied mar­ket­ing agency known as Beat­root Pineap­ple. It is my big­gest suc­cess so far, hav­ing crossed bor­ders to Botswana and hav­ing a na­tional foot­print lo­cally.

MY JOUR­NEY SO FAR

My jour­ney started at Irene pri­mary school and I com­pleted ma­tric at South­downs Col­lege. I went through all 12 years of school with sport as a pas­sion. I only truly dis­cov­ered my love and strengths for busi­ness when I moved to Bangkok, Thai­land, af­ter ma­tric to study to­wards a BBA in com­puter in­for­ma­tion sys­tems. I dis­cov­ered my love for busi­ness, but mar­ket­ing in par­tic­u­lar and I be­gan in­vest­ing in knowl­edge that would al­low me to build brands suc­cess­fully. I started Beat­root Pineap­ple and it has grown with time, hard work and the cor­rect team to what it is to­day. I later self­pub­lished and re­leased my first book ti­tled 15 Pages, which is a mo­ti­va­tional ref­er­ence book for youth.

MY FU­TURE PLANS

Be­ing an in­ter­na­tional busi­ness speaker, re­leas­ing a sec­ond book next month and grow­ing busi­nesses to highly prof­itable and recog­nis­able en­ti­ties.

WHAT DRIVES ME

A de­sire to reach my goals at a young age be­cause I be­lieve wealth is bet­ter en­joyed when you are young and strong.

WHAT I DRIVE

A Volk­swa­gen Polo 1.6 which I pur­chased at age 21. What I would love next is a Porsche Panamera but I will make the pur­chase at 35 when I re­tire.

ON MY AU­DIO SYS­TEM

I lis­ten to a lot of house mu­sic and gospel.

SA ROADS WOULD BE BET­TER IF

We had a lane for en­trepreneurs (be­cause we are al­ways late).
