Over the past nearly 2 decades I have been the co-founder and manager of the following businesses:

Tool Share Studio - Johannesburg's first Maker Space.

As part of Letsatsi I designed and led a mentorship programme assisting over 600 entrepreneurs start and then grow their own businesses.
‘I run a property development and management business. My challenge was to diversify revenue streams given the slow-down due to political and economic factors. I contacted Meg and together we worked through the Business Model Canvas. This helped me to identify other areas that I could utilize to generate cash flow, and to grow revenue. We have now used these ideas to implement structural changes to our business model.’
