#storyofmylife Like many of you, I never envisioned running my own business. Since I started working, I have always been a salaried worker, even after getting married and having children.
Having an empty nest when my children grew up and left home, I felt the time had come for a new challenge. I went out of my comfort zone and started a business that resonated with me. Here I am today, proudly managing Lekker Rooibos.
Annique was the perfect fit for me as it is a proudly South African business with quality rooibos based products that are well in demand and popular. The low risk of the Annique business appealed to me as I am a risk-averse person as both my parents worked for a salary and were not in business.
Annique vision was in line with my purpose in life "creating life-changing opportunities for everyone." Over the past six years, I noticed how the Annique products improved my clients' health and quality of their lives.
Of course, it did not start easy for me - since this whole entrepreneurship journey was new. I learn many new things along the way (as we all do). I realise it's all about the mindset to achieve our goals.
To improve my business skills, I attended a presentation course offered by Annique, which helped me step out of my comfort zone. I had to overcome my fear of talking in front of an audience. I am building a team and invested in courses for personal development and leadership training. I also joined BNI to help me develop a business mindset and network with like-minded individuals. I must say, it is the ideal platform for long-life learning.
I also enjoy face-to-face activities like skincare training and team training as Covid forces us to optimise our use of social media. I am learning new skills every day and looking forward to becoming more active on social media. It keeps me excited every day!
Enough about me, let's hear something about you too! ♡
