My Background

I am an entrepreneur who is task-oriented, pay attention to design details while working as a field technician. 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.

Stepping Up | Development

As an entrepreneur, I've learned that there's a great difference between an amateur and a professional. As an amateur, I designed my own blogs, change my own oil in my car, and so on. All of this would take up valuable time and effort, causing major frustration in the process. I knew that at a certain point in my business, I couldn't grow any further until I hired a few key people. Nowadays, I leave these duties to the professionals since that's what they do best. This way, I maximize all of my talents, which allows me to reach my highest potential. Today, I only keep the best people around me. It costs a little bit more, but I've learned the value in "paying the price."



One thing that I had to do was to let old friends know that I was moving on in my life. Eventually, I have became fireproof. In the process of reaching my professional goals, I've learned that dealing with people is the most important attribute. Another challenge was creating excuses which was one of my greatest obstacles. I allowed my circumstance to dictate my life, instead of taking control of my life. Eventually, I had to let go of these excuses and limitations. Dealing with adversity was my greatest teacher and it allowed me to build the type of resilience that helped me walk through the fire.

When I became my journey in transforming, I had to check in with my mentors, telling them the brutal truth about my situations. In the process of making myself vulnerable, I was able to gain freedom, releasing myself from false pressures and anxiety. By sharing myself with others, I was able to maximize my efforts and make major breakthroughs in my life. Taking risks requires much faith in myself and others, but it must be done! According to me, Faith is knowing that what I want will eventually happen as long as I believe it. I learned to take major leaps in my life, sometimes not even knowing where it will lead because that's what professionals do......
