1. What were some obstacles that you faced in the beginning process of starting your business or career?
The obstacles faced were the client’s instability, in the beginning, stability is necessary to ensure the running of any business. My company was not known at the time, so there
was a bit of distrust moreover it being women-owned was also a factor however we managed to break barriers of practicing within a male-dominated industry, and we have earned trust through merit.
2. What inspired you to break into your particular industry?
Rising levels of black unemployed graduates and the scarcity of females practicing with my profession inspired me to break in my industry.
3. How do you balance your personal and professional life or have you been able to find a balance?
By not interrupting set time-allocated for each, that’s how I maintain a balance between personal and professional life except if I am briefed to appear on an urgent court interdict which will require me to work overtime.
My family, I come from a family rooted in business we conducted business during the most challenging times of segregation/apartheid days so I am empowered that we
managed/survived through it back then, what would prevent us from pursuing business to date in democratic times protected by the world’s best constitution. The business skills and acumen that have encouraged me all along I learned it all from our family businesses.
