Define success in five words

Progress, development, consistency, perseverance and humility.

How do you remain focused and inspired?

I look at how many people rely on my contribution to the success of the business for survival. The miles of my journey have been incredible, looking back always kicks me right back into focus.

I’m inspired by the risks we take in business, I thrive under the pressure of having to dive to the extreme depth to make things work. I often visit the masters of what I do in various countries, observe their trends and steal whatever I can to better my craft.

What advice would you offer young entrepreneurs?

Never lose focus. Never stop learning, challenging your thoughts, methods and seeking better results. Never loose humility!

If you could have dinner with one person, dead or alive, who would it be?

Dead, Steve Bantu Biko. Alive, Vusi Thenjekwayo.
