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).
