Small to medium sized businesses are the backbone of economies, and here in South Africa, and in 2019, we need more self-starters than ever. During his state of the nation address, President Cyril Ramaphosa expressed his vision for a tech-savvy, smart and small-business-orientated South Africa. While he has been criticised for being a bit too “dreamy”, those who don’t dream at all are those furthest away from achieving greatness, in my opinion.

In times when companies are cutting jobs left, right and centre, there isn’t time to sulk and wallow, we need new business owners to create new opportunities.Marnus Broodryk, entrepreneur, best-selling Author and TV personality recently posted on LinkedIn: “It's a bloodbath out there. A few days ago, another corporate (ArcelorMittal) said it might need to cut 2000 jobs. The world is changing and the world is changing very fast. Educate yourself, put in the time, do the work, see how you can get ahead - only the best of the best will survive (and thrive) this new world.”

The time for dreamers to take action and become do-ers, is now! Novelist Judith McNauth said: "You can’t outwit fate by standing on the sidelines placing little side bets about the outcome of life… if you don’t play you can’t win." Nothing in life happens by accident. Successful people are successful because they tried, tested, and in some cases failed, learned and tried again. Did you know that Bill Gates was a university dropout, and went on to co-own a business that turned out to be a huge failure? This didn’t stop him, however, as his success and business tenacity with Microsoft is one of the best known to date.

Opportunities are everywhere, all you need to do is do your research, put in the time and effort to bring something (product or service) unique or of a superior quality to the market. If you are able to come up with an idea that can solve a problem a consumer is having you are well on your way towards success. Thanks to the rise of the internet, startups don’t need to have thousands of rands before they can turn their visions into feasible businesses. If you have a service or product to sell, the internet can help you broadcast to a wider audience.
