I am on a blogging marathon promoting of my upcoming 3rd book (28 October 2015), The Anxious Entrepreneur. Pre-order it at up to 40% discount.

People like to dig and analyse people’s background affairs.

A homeboy was saying to me I wouldn’t be pursuing entrepreneurship had my parents not been doing ok. He meant, given otherwise, I would have been forced to take a job to keep things going in the family.

It got me thinking of

Being an entrepreneur has never been more desirable, and I should know because I am one.
At 34 I have ticked a few boxes: business contracts ending, emotionally and financially straining business and two miscarriages,

Despite living what some might think is the “entrepreneurial dream” – I

Entrepreneurship is the process of starting a business, a start-up company or other organization. The entrepreneur develops a business plan, acquires the human and other required resources, and is fully responsible for its success or failure. The definition above states a lot of aspects of entrepreneurship that many small company CEOs/owners do not notice. I was reading an article when I was prompted to search the definition of Entrepreneurship. I read the definition over and over again until it dawned on me that most of us new age, money crazed and creative entrepreneurs are too focused on the ‘now’ forgetting that to start a business and not see to it that it keeps growing is going against the definition.

These points are extracted from my upcoming book The Anxious Entrepreneur.

It was at about 3:35 pm. I felt I was about to faint or have a panic attack. The day was not going well. Over and above, I was overly tired.

It had been weeks since I had any ‘win’. Therefore I needed to hustle people on the phone even if it was 4:00 pm. I was desperate. For goodness’ sake, that time is around knock off time. A business pitch is the last thing they would want to hear.

A rejection email had heightened the panic. All these triggered

As always, the fun at STARTUP PICNIC starts with an opportunity to hear from fellow entrepreneurs who are doing it and very well at that.

This is what we call the Breakfast-Talk at STARTUP PICNIC, which this time will be from 10am to 12pm (2 May 2015 at Lido Hotel, Johannesburg). In a casual setting, our guest speakers will share experiences in their business life, i.e. the challenges, vulnerabilities, troubles, motivation, key lessons, values and how they gel all these to bring success.

The mission is always to bring you a mixture of guest speakers you would rarely find in one roof but equally are eager to openly share both challenges and victories in their business life.

Our curators went in and invited Khofelo Pholafudi, Marumo Lekwankwa and Arnold Mhlamvu. They are young too.

Below is a bit about them and what to expect…
