Why a good corporate identity pack is a good starting point for your business.
You know that time when it’s 11am on a Monday morning and your mind is screaming “we never should have left bed this morning?” You know that time, everything should be okay with you, the weather is finally warming up, you’ve been getting good feedback on your business, but then suddenly bam – you’re stuck in a rut.

Last week, I was at a pitching competition hosted by DOLOLO supported by the Southern Africa Innovation Support Programme and National Commission on Science Research and Technology. I got there just before the program was about to commence so I was late to see the party begin but not too late to grab some snacks and say hi to a few familiar faces. One thing I already had figured out is that this was an ideal place for one to network with the fellow start up community, exchange contact details and establish relationships that could evolve into collaborations or partnerships. However, I soon realized that with most networking events people always tend to gravitate to who they are already familiar with.

Growing up I was raised by a resourceful and business minded set of parents. My father despite his day job as an architect still worked the garden after-hours and would sell his produce over the weekends at the local market. That was the money he would spend on household costs and save up his salary, while my mom was a teacher but also made and sold traditional butters and sauces.
My answer is to prevent this situation from happening at all costs and when it does happen – make sure you don’t lose out too much.
Can I just say; if you haven’t read the first letter – please do go back and read it babe…this one will make better sense if you do…
Back to it…
Hang on…Siri… What is a side hustle-babe? Wait am I a side-hustle babe?
Human interactions are vital and this does not stop when you get into university. I once read somewhere that the friends you make in university will become your friends forever. I agree with this statement as through my years of studying I have met wonderful people, I have created relationships that are based on more than just academics and interactions when the semester breaks are over.
