I Empower & Transform. I am who I decide to be each and every day. I am who I choose to be each day.. God being my center, my guide and driver I see greatness. #BALANCE You will lose small battles in order to win the WAR, but this requires you to balance your life. You need to differentiate and find a balance between what you can and cannot change. Choosing to step back doesn’t mean you’re a failure or a coward for that matter, it means you can see when to stop and take a step back. #ACTION What you claim to be capable of remains invisible until you decide to ACT. I’ve learned that your imagination can excite you in seeing the end result but if you don’t start painting that image it will remain unseen. #TENACITY [...]
Dear Lord, I often spend my time worried and unhappy about things that may never happen and yet I know that this is not only wrong in Your sight but it is affecting me and my relationship with my friends and family. Change me Lord from the inside out so that I do not fret and worry about things that may never happen but help me rather to focus my mind on what is good and lovely and give others the support and encouragement that they need - and not expect others to address the needs and concerns that I have. Lord I know that I can never change on my own – but I know that when I allow You to work Your good work through me I will show forth Christ’s love in my life and not [...]
In 2008, I took a decision to drop out of university. At the time I was enrolled with University of the North West famously known as UNIBO. I will tell you next time why I dropped out, today is about #business. In 2009, I registered with Tshwane University of Technology where I studied a diploma In Web Applications and Development. My family used to send me R 500 per month, with this amount I had to pay rent R350 and the remaining R 150 was for food, cosmetics and everything else I needed. You probably wondering what you can buy with R150 these days, it’s not enough to buy much but I had to make it work. One Friday, after class as I was walking to my room, a guy driving a grey MEGANE [...]
I failed Grade 10! This was the first time ever repeating a grade. The most painful part of that day was not because I failed, but because my mother had to come with me to school to get the report. While other parents were happy for their kids my mom kept calm. I remember being in bed crying later that day, listening to my brother in the background saying: "She will never accept it, I know that she can never fail, I bet she's going to ask for a remark". That's how much he believed in me :) My message to you! If you don't focus, you will fail at some point. If you don't appreciate and respect the time and support you have around you today, tomorrow might be too late. As you start your new term at [...]

Two things that define our world is our perception and how we act on it. If your mind shifts, so does the world around you. Take a moment each day, and think about all the things you used to imagine, this time with the intention of seeing them becoming a reality. Impossible is temporary and the sooner you realize that the unknown fear you keep running away from is the key to your breakthrough, the better. Some think progress is about seeing the opportunity. #BeyondVisibleIsInvisible Just because you cannot see it, doesn't mean it's not there. Be #patient Have #faith Be #confident Keep #working Believe in your #idea Invest in #yourself I wrote down the name of my company before I knew what services it would offer.

You know you are a leader when you don't settle for the ordinary. Some get into business because they need extra cash, fair enough, note that that reason will not sustain your long term plan. I have an 8 - 5 and have my own business. Is it easy? No it's not, is it possible to have 2 jobs? Yes it is possible. You don't just wake up and decide to quick without a solid plan, build your company until you can afford to run it full time. Where do I get the time? I stay up till late to work on clients projects, PAID Projects. Don't invest or sacrifice your sleep and not getting Return on Investment. I don't brag about sleeping less hours that I should, it's unhealthy but at times I got to do it. [...]
