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.

Wisdom | Opinion

How I've Become Wiser with Age... Everybody has ups and downs, but over the years I’ve noticed a long-term trend: My unpredictable events of daily life tend to influence my state of mind at any given time but there’s definitely been a general upward trend – like equity of a growing small business. My career followed pretty much the same sort of trajectory: plenty of high-frequency ups and downs but generally up and to the right over the long haul. While that’s nothing to write home about, I think you’ll find the factors behind it illuminating, if not surprising. When I was young my world was small but my ego was huge so, relatively speaking, every little thing matters a lot. Growing up is about realizing I'm not such a big deal after all. When I stop taking myself so seriously and started lightening up, life got a lot easier. While I’m still a kid in many ways, it’s balanced by a sense of humility. We didn’t have everything growing up so a lot of things were improvements. And while I admit to having been a little jealous of the nicer things my friends had, rather than a handicap I used that as an incentive to work hard and strive to achieve great things. That relentless drive is critical to my success. I always had this insatiable hunger to learn: to explore, to figure out how things work, to know everything about everything. My parents encouraged it, although I don’t know how they kept me from going nuts. I’ve never been shy about asking advice of those who had achieved what I aspired to be. More importantly, I listened. Sure, I trusted my gut, but when their words really resonated with me, I acted without hesitation. That proved remarkably beneficial in choosing the right path when I was at a crossroads. I learned that life offers two distinct choices. The first is to reach for the stars. If you make it, great. If not, you have nothing to feel bad about. The second is not to go for it and spend the rest of your life beating yourself up over what you’re not and all the while wondering what could have been. Regret is a bitter pill to swallow. What I thought I'll find counterintuitive is that it’s all work related. The reason is simple. My priority has always been to do what I love for a living so, for me, hard work has always been fun and fulfilling. That’s probably why I enjoy it and over time, that brought freedom, flexibility, and a fulfilling life - A happy life. But there is a catch and learned that It doesn’t happen overnight. One thing I noticed somewhere along the line is, the less I pressured myself in the short-term – the more I learned to let go and relax – the more successful I became over the long-term. Life is a marathon, not a sprint therefore I'm not in such a hurry to get to the finish line and I’ll get there soon enough.
