Nedbank delivered on their “Ask Once” promise

I avoid going to the bank as much as possible. Who wants to queue and get average service? Thereafter – in most instances – be told to go to “your home branch”. At least that was always my perception of banks. Until this past Saturday, that is. With the excitement of Friday night, I forgot […]

That Elusive Dream Client

So, you wake up one morning with an idea to start your business and having high profile clients call you up all the time. Days become weeks, they turn to months and you haven’t had access to that dream client. What now? You’ve tried everything you know how and exhausted your network calling everyone who […]

Chilli Cheese Fries and unusual buzz

Some days you get so busy, lunch becomes a distant reflection. Except those days when you actually put everything down. You leave the office and go sit somewhere.  Even then, little do you expect lunch itself to make it into your conversation. What’s for lunch? So we went to a little restaurant called Tasha’s with […]

Introducing WordStart

So . . . about 2 months ago I decided to work something that, at the time, seemed simple enough. A lot of the projects I worked on over the years had one thing in common – building movements behind a single idea. After working with a few people, being the recipient of a stern […]

Your Great Following Is An Illusion

Whether a customer pays you or not, they have expectations. Do you know what they expect? This past Friday I went to a show in Johannesburg, where DJ Premier was playing. In a nutshell Premier, for me, is one of Hip Hop’s superheroes a ninja. An icon. He wields nanchuks that are foundation of Hip […]

Do you want to change the world, but struggle to differentiate yourself enough? Organizing a community lets people know whether they belong there or not. Whether it’s for them or not. With the right people, you are able to focus instead of wasting your time and energy on everybody else – who is not meant […]

Are you listening?

When I met Lindsay – our first guest blogger – she was more than keen to share her experience as a communication specialist. This is her guest post on listening to your customers and converting potential ones. By: Lindsay Grubb I grew up in a home where none of us stopped talking long enough to […]

Be our guest blogger

My posts here have decreased over the past few months. The most natural thing to think is  – oh come up with a new strategy. Talk about some exciting airy fairy little idea that keeps people at the edge of their seats. No edge-of-your-seat sitting, unless you normally do when you write. The plan is […]

NetwebTV Tech4Africa Special

I recently wrote about the Tech4Africa Conference, which actually turned out to be amazing. More awesome than the conference itself were the organizers, who gave me an all-access blogger pass. Emerging Media and the Tech4Africa team are rockstars. We interviewed some of the speakers, delegates and Seedcamp participants. The Tech4Africa Special In this NetwebTV special, we […]

Entrepreneur of the Year Award

It is not often that you get appreciated for the hard work you do. The sleepless nights. The pitches you don’t get called back for. But lucky for you, someone out there is watching. This morning in the mail, I got something that might excite you. At least I thought it would. Sanlam and Business Partners […]
