The world is changing fast and to keep up you need local knowledge with global context.
It’s been well over a decade since I worked with Hayley Goodwin Parry, co-founder of Worth Financial Education, which has introduced Moneycraft to more than 50 000 South Africans. From yesterday’s interview for the latest Inside Covid-19 podcast, it’s easy to see why ever-competent Hayley’s venture is so successful. Have a listen by clicking here: https://iono.fm/e/873413.
What I didn’t realise though, was that rather than jumping into her new world, Hayley was pushed into this life-changing venture. It was only after being retrenched by Media24 that she felt sufficiently emboldened to take the plunge into self-employment by following her passion. En kyk hoe lyk sy nou!
One day we may also look back at this time of the Covid-19 pandemic as the time when the universe forced many former salary slaves into working for themselves. I’m hoping so. Because releasing the vast energy of mass self-employment is the only way I can see our beloved country overcoming the ruinous economic impact of what we have experienced since March.
If you’re among the many South Africans looking for a new plan, allow me to pose your questions during tomorrow’s Noontime Thursday webinar to our special guest – entrepreneur, business coach and start-up specialist Allon Raiz. The event is open to all, but you must register beforehand. Here’s the link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8398038334086112016.
