Story
Tagline
Serial entrepreneur with a love for nature, aiming at empowering others with the tools for financial security ;-j
Introduction
After many years in several industries I have gained a greater understanding of the workings of life. I have now chosen my final path which is to making it possible for everyone within my reach to have access to fresh organically grown foods. Whether its their own home grown or purchased through my network of micro farmers. I empower rural people with opportunities within the agricultural sector.
