My Background

I am an entreprenuer who is task-oriented, results-driven with planning and organizing skills. I also pay attention to design details while working on building my electronics commissioning and installation agency (MEP Digital Systems): Specialising in Embedded systems for Fire detection and Alarms, CCTV and Electronic Article Surveilance, Remote Access Control, HVAC and Piping, Video and Audio systems, Networking as well as Electric Motor and Pumps. I'm enthusiastic in finding new innovative solutions using a combination of analytical and technical skill when importing/exporting electronic products for smart facilities and asset management.

I'm also an avid investor in small ideas, keen reader and social activist who is enthusiastic in finding new opportunities in import/export of electronic products through a combination of creative and analytical skills. I'm also a strategist who is systematic in approaching challenges. I grew up around farming communities, urban townships, mining towns and city metropolis within the various provinces in South Africa. This exposure lead me to be interested in human interaction and to appreciate what the human mind is capable of achieving. Through my vast interaction with different people, I managed to increasing my personal network. It became clear at an early stage of my life with the ability to spot opportunities which made me by nature, to become a social enterprenuer.....

Social Entrepreneur:
noun
  1. defined as a person who establishes an enterprise with the aim of solving social problems or effecting social change.

As an individual with a positive outlook towards my challenges, I've embarked on the most interesting journeys in my life which I intend on documenting. These are the glimpse of my trials and tribulations because I believe that: "You must believe you are the best and then make sure that you are...".. I was once told that: "If you don't have enough money then you haven't helped enough people yet". The road to riches is paved with acquisition of specific knowledge.

Leadership

 I’ve learned a lot in the years since starting my businesses; truthfully, I’ve learned more than I ever could have imagined. I’ve definitely learned more than I ever learned in university, or any class I’ve taken or at any previous educational institution I’ve attended but the lessons haven’t all just been about business, specifically (though I have learned a great deal about that as well). I’ve also learned a lot about myself – my strengths and weaknesses, my passions, my shortcomings, my ability to deal with failure, stress, pressure, rejection and competitors and even how to lead – and it has been (and will continue to be) a humbling journey.

And while I’m still learning, each and every single day, there’s one thing I know for certain. Connections are everything. EVERYTHING. Seriously, they are everything. If I hadn’t poured my heart and soul into creating a community that I would be proud to be a part of, I would have nothing to show for it. There would be no business. I have always been proud of my ability to put others first, to help others shine and provide opportunities or connections (or just a helping hand) whenever I can. And it’s not something I do for a return. It’s just something I do. It’s innate. It’s part of who I am. And no matter what happens, I’m never letting go of that piece of me.

No matter how many times somebody takes it for granted, insults me, belittles me or takes advantage of me, I’ll still go out of my way to connect people – to provide help, new opportunities, connections or even just to help broaden the network. So whatever you do out there, keep connecting and putting your best self forward. Don’t lash out or insult others, no matter what the circumstance might be. Don’t throw negative comments at somebody just to make them feel small, it doesn’t look good on you. Be kind. Be respectful. And work hard. And the rest will fall in place.....
