Yesterday I was part of a panel discussion by Brand SA about positioning South Africa's brand. While I was sitting there listening to the audience feedback and comments I wrote the following that captures in my view South Africa's mood. Hope you enjoy it.

We are sorry, Dear world.

We gave you a geopolitical miracle in 1994 on the back of a phenomenal spirit of can-do, of listening to each other.

We dropped the ball recently by letting greed jam at foot in our ethical doors. Will let you down dear world. But we are not giving up.

We are at can do people. We are waking up from our slumber and slowly but firmly unjamming that foot from the door so that we can close that horrible chapter and open new ones.

We have a history of working out serious issues. We tackle things. Sometime frustratingly slowly, true, but we do engage eventually. We are rising again. We are realising we’ve been trying to push ‘South Africa 1st ‘ to the world much to the detriment of our brothers and sisters on this continent. We were rude. We are aware of it and are doing our damnedest best to change ourselves.

We are sorry and we are going to learn the language of respect again. Respect for our fellow brothers and sisters who don’t have access to opportunities. Respect for our African neighbors. Respect for ourselves.

We are sorry dear world, but don’t give up on us yet. We are working damn hard to make you proud of us. We’re going to make you proud to allow us to be your friends, your colleagues, your suppliers & buyers and your business partners in this amazing journey called life.

We are doing a lot of cleaning up of our house and as with all such operations there's a lot of dirt coming up. That makes it harder to see far and clear so it may look like gloom and doom, but it is just the sign of our brooms working hard.

Yours

South Africa

Accounting - dammed if you do and dammed if you do not flashy and fun and for most of us it puts us to sleep. That is until you realise how important it is when you need to understand what is really going on in your business, how much money you have left, how much you are making from your clients and if you'll still be around next year. It is crucial when you need to raise money to grow or bring on board investors who don't just believe your pretty words but want to see 'the books'. So, if accounting is that important surely anyone opening an accounting firm will be making millions? Well, no. An accounting firm is a business and there are fundamental rules around an accounting business that you need to watch out for. In this podcast we look at what it is like to open an accounting business, grow it, find clients, manage staff and the hiccups you are likely to encounter in your journey.

In my 2nd podcast, I interviewed the phenomenal Tyronne Nel about the business of accounting.

The Chief Coffee Drinker's first podcast in the "Demystifying Business" series :-)

It is my first podcast (ever) so please forgive the amateurish nature of this podcast. I hope my passion to help demystify this exciting world makes up for all the little bloopers and basic format :-)

Today's podcast? Demystifying second careers - life after being fired (especially for older people)

I often compare the business you decide to start to choosing a ship. There are many types of ships, from sailing boats to container vessels to trailers. You pick the ship that you think best suits your ambitions and then set sail only to find yourself in rough waters and realise you picked the wrong ship. So you to turn back to harbor to pick a better suited vessel - sometime feeling like failure but often forgetting that you have become a better sailor in the process.

In this delightfully frank conversation I talk about the ships I chose in life, the rough waters of business, attitude, curiosity, failure, life, Africa's potential, deciding what to pursue in life and understanding what drives you and how to trick yourself, amongst other things.

Kudos to the immensively talented Anne Williams for guiding our conversation so skillfully. Hopefully it will be of helps to other fellow entrepreneurs.
