My start to life.
I am born in Cape Town, South Africa, 1967.
My father being Mr .J.J Walt and my mother Mrs .P.R Hodge/ Kirsten.
Extremely grateful for the input my parents instilled in me from the day I took my 1st breath of life.
I am the youngest of 4 siblings, a brother, sister and a half sister.
My personal values.
Progress, work ethic, vitality, wealth, love and a good attitude.
There have been 2 very special ladies in my life who impacted hugely, that has passed, no regrets.
I do have that special lady on board that I consider highly.
My Personal Religion/ Belief System.
My personal belief is primarily based on logic, common sense and decency and most of all, to manage myself with good effect.
I do my best to deploy this daily, nobody is perfect, so far from infallible. I call it being human.
My personal edge.
Never to succumb irrespective of the challenge.It is my personal will to succeed and to be brave enough to take accountability for my errors and / or misdoings.
There is a virtue that stands prominently, family. It is imperative that family stick side by side irrespective of varying views upheld, we are all uniquely different. This must be respected.
When you share the same blood it is something that as a sibling I honor.
Self-actualisation and a long life.
Schooled at SACS from grade 1 to grade 12 where I matriculated in 1985
I participated in many sporting activities. Played cricket for the SACS 1st 11, 1st team athletics,played rugby and spent many years from a young age at the gym.
My activity after school involved a two-year military service, the navy, beginning of 1987 to 1989.
An unbelievable experience. It was an honor to participate.
Irrespective of the era, proudly South African.
Worked in Wholesale for 5-6 years in the cosmetic industry/sector.
The grounding for the industry I am currently involved with.
Lived for 1 year in Johannesburg, in my 26th year. It is a dynamic city with a lot of energy.
Really enjoyed my brief stint living there.
My brother and I started a retail chain of cosmetic outlets, founded in 1999, namely Jabula Hair.
My biggest challenge/s 2007-2012.
Illness ruled me out of work and functional life for a period of 5 years. I count my blessings I am still standing today, a close encounter.
A misdiagnosis proving costly.
That is the past, grateful to have restored all functionality, now know objectively what I am dealing with.
South Africa is blessed with a fantastic medical fraternity.
Question & verify everything properly before taking action. Implement with a plan and vision. Team Work.
Structured, I am governed by my left brain.
There's a handful of special people who have been instrumental in helping me out of a zone I never thought possible, they know who they are, a massive THANK YOU!!
The last 4-5 years.
I attribute 2013/14 as years of climbing back into life on all frontiers.
2015 has been a successful year, built on the prior 2 years.
2016 has far more fluidity about it than the year prior. Progress!!
2016 - The year of opportunity.
I am currently deployed/employed to administer all marketing for Jabula Hair.
In the process of registering an E-Commerce venture.
