Never did I ever think that I would have been able to start my own company and receive the overwhelming positive feedback since it officially launched just 2 months ago✨
Starting a company in your 20s in South Africa may seem simple at first, however, I can assure it’s far from simple. It takes working over weekends, it takes giving up “the jol”, it takes back-to-back late nights followed by extremely early mornings👀.
It requires you to be healthier and stronger than ever before - both mentally and physically. It takes a toll on your personal life (this was the hardest thing for me and still is the hardest) having to choose between spending those extra special moments at home with your lover, or spending a long weekend with your family vs working when everyone else is sleeping🦉.
It’s not easy, but is it worth it - HELL YES!
I wanted to take the time to thank those who have supported me on this journey to start it in the first place. In the same breathe, I wanted to take the time to (also) thank those who tried to convince me otherwise - as you landed up being the reason I worked 100 x harder to make sure it happened. 💁🏼♀️💡
I asked on my story this week “If you were in an accident and were given a second chance to live - would you come back and do exactly what you are doing?” A year ago I would have said no, today I am so proud to say HELL YES! If I spend the rest of my life ensuring people are valued for their worth and are given opportunities they previously did not believe were even an option - then I believe I am living the life I truly always wanted💫.
Here’s to living the life you always dreamt of
Here’s to taking the time to pinch yourself
Here’s to treasuring me-time now more than ever
Thank you to my incredible team, unbelievably supportive friends and my amazing family for your unconditional support - I wish I could tag every single person I know in this image but instagram may think I am a robot😆 Finally, an special thank you to my best friend and lover Zane Davies for sticking by side through it all 💛✨ at Cape Town, Western Cape
