Entrepreneurial Journey

When you design or create your own product or service, you do it because your mind has formulated an idea of something useful, wonderful or spectacular. You may think of this idea intentionally to start a new business or it may be something that rushes into your mind spontaneously. Either way, once you have it, give it some thought. Simmer on it and weigh up the pros and cons.

Once you have determined that it is a viable and feasible notion, go with it! Some statistics may prove a market for something and other statistics may indicate otherwise but I believe you should follow your heart and pursue it. With enough drive and passion, you can make a success of it. That includes hard work.

No market is saturated, anyone can take the wheel and steer!

Designing and creating your product or service is a different story. You will have to really apply yourself to it – depending on what it is – and conquer the milestones it consists of. As some would call them “hurdles”.

Sounds simple, right? Not really! Taking an idea to the next level and building that momentum up until you found some entry into the market is very, very hard work. The idea of thinking that starting a business is simple is as simple as having an idea and never putting it into action, momentum, success!

I would love to read more and write more about this topic. It is my passion. I love being an entrepreneur. I also really enjoy business. It is hard work but very satisfying. The enjoyment and achievement outweighs any other rewards that this venture and journey may hold for you.

I have been an entrepreneur for many years and have launched several successful business still running today. They are each a great joy with it’s own challenges.

All I can say is that it is not about the money. Don’t start a business with only the idea to make money, you have to at least enjoy or like what you are doing as well. If you shift your mind and daily processing thoughts toward the financials, you may surely lose sight of your goals. You may or you may not but even if you don’t, you will not enjoy what you are doing.

I will do some research and give some steps to starting your own business. I have come across great information in the past such as articles and videos in which I found inspiration. I’ll do a follow-up and post some of them here with an opinion.

What can you do for me?

No longer will we have a pathetic and empathetic attitude towards candidates coming into the office to fill in a questionnaire or for an interview. We are not here to serve them. Those days are over!

Whomever is interested in working with us need to convince me why I should hire them by telling me what they can do for me. How can they make my workload lighter, how can they contribute towards the growth of the business and how can they evolve themselves in the process. Growth and evolution in an employee is expected and it should be implemented into the company again in return. 

I’ve seen lazy people and I’ve seen stagnating people but once I’ve seen a disloyal person and lost all my trust. I will make sure that doesn’t happen again. Good riddance and good luck!

My wife made a joke when i said that the new employer of that person never phoned me as a reference. She said that if they did i should’ve told them that I don’t want to tell them how bad he is because then I may not be able to get rid of him. That is how you call a spade a spade!

I’m minding my own business to do my business. I’m not here to entertain you, make sure you can sustain your lifestyle or to watch you wash your dirty laundry. I expect you to do your work and do it with passion and willingness. If you can’t do that we are going to have a problem. 

Rustenburg DSTV Installations & Repairs

My wife and I disconnected our DSTV a while back because we were so busy that we didn’t watch it at all and paying the premium each month was a waste and money in the water. Things recently calmed down with work and family life so we decided to switch it back on again. By then, we have switched around our living and dining rooms in the house so we had to move the DSTV cables as well.
