My lockdown experience has been filled with mixed emotions. Ups and downs. Wins and losses. The organisation I currently work for ensured a very smooth transition into the work from home (WFH) experience. The week of the announcement we were given the opportunity to take...

Working from home has given me the freedom to express myself in finding a 'new' me. I have enjoyed exploring fresh and enlightening ways to live a more balanced and healthier life. This has also contributed to me being more confident and has reinforced my...

My birthday also took place during the heart of the lockdown. For the first time in my life, I would be alone on the day, however special people in my life made sure I still felt the love from various corners of the globe, literally!...

The best part of all is that I have been able to create balance in my life – making time for everything that is important to me, not just work. In fact, what I least expected happened, the less time I spent working and having...

COVID may have come in to destroy lives, kill hope and leave a trail of destruction. But not in my business. Not in my family and certainly not in my life. It has only brought laughter, joy, quality time, memories and moments to cherish. The...

It’s quite surreal looking back to the moment in time when I found myself sitting on my couch watching the President’s address and learning of the upcoming 21-day hard lockdown. It was a strange moment and one that filled me with more intrigue than despair. I...

If someone were to ask me to describe the year 2020 there are many adjectives which come to mind. My mind immediately wanders to the countless memes on social media that poke fun at this crazy COVID-19 year of lockdown doom and gloom. In short...

When the words 'COVID 19' and 'lockdown' are heard in a sentence, there is an underlying feeling of uneasiness and a small sense of panic. At least those were my feelings when it was announced that South Africa would be going into a hard lockdown...

As we enter the last quarter of 2020, I’m eager to see it out with a bang. Studying full-time and managing a household while my husband works at the hospital has been one crazy and transformative journey simultaneously....

The advancement of professional black women continuing to be a priority has made it possible for these women to move beyond the racialised and patriarchal constraints that subjected all women to a subordinated status, onto a path towards positions of leadership....

Post-apartheid South Africa was supposed to be the era of equality. However, it has become clear that equality is neither immune to power relations, nor disconnected from history, and that white male domination did not simply vanish the day South Africa became a democracy. There...

Entrepreneurship can be a lonely journey at times, but it has the potential to be a very fulfilling career. As much as entrepreneurship is fast becoming the first choice for economic and social development across the world, South Africa is still facing challenges in growing...
