Tell us what drives you? What is your true passion in life?
I have a series of embedded passions from athletics to mining. My true passion. Where do I begin? Hard to answer as I hold each one of them close to me.
My passion is life. Breathing every day. Being alive, sharing……caring. My passion is about uplifting life circumstances and transcending over the blocks, pass the trudges, wither the storm and stream ahead!
My passion blossoms into doing all I can do for others. I feel when you have an abundance to give you do it holistically. You do not feel any loss giving out what you have. My passion is seeing all around me blooming in success. I beam in the success of others. A combination of individual success equals the success of our nation and our global world
How did you find your passion and how old were you?
I cannot place a definite age to my passion about living. Since the day I was born I guess. Haha…… But I heard my brother Sthembiso was not too happy about the news of my arrival. I was lucky. I was the last born, so I guess I can never really truly know his state of mind at that time. A new arrival invading your space. We are a true team now though!
Ok ..let me get down to the list.
Athletics was my passion, that was in early schooling year, and soccer of course. But that subsided with societal realities and rules. I had to study and get a job to live. A technical background secured this at tertiary education life stages. So I qualified as an electrical engineer. I qualified and certified myself until I had a BSC and Honours in Information Systems.
I discovered Forex as a byline along the way. An income coming in added benefit to a 9-5 regular job. Then I saw the potential in the forex market. I was magnetized. There was no stepping back. Making a living at your fingertips. Who could ask for more?
Forex is natural, not about certified education, but mental emancipation, An overall empowerment tool. There were no traders or mentors when I strolled into the sector in South Africa at that time. This is when I decided to take it on to train others.

What about your passion appeals to you the most?
I spent seventeen years of my life waking up to new working days, just to pay the bills. Wasted time and energy. Most of us only realize this on retirement.
Passion is not automatic when your hours are controlled in a clock system. Passion subsides.
My passion is rising above this and teaching others to do the same.
What appeals to me is uplifting lives. We can rise against economic disempowerment thrust on us. We can. There is no reason to be crying at budget speeches and waiting for handouts and grants. Africa must rise again!
What drove you to make money from your passions?
Passion becomes money, Passion pays you if you are true to your cause. You are guided to empowerment at the tip of your fingers.
What drove me to make money from passions? I saw a way out of nine to five lockdowns as a method. Emancipation in the true sense of the word,
When was the first time you were paid for your passion?
When I was an engineer I was paid. That was a tool of empowerment into the world of money. My passion is abundance and the root of it monetary elements!
As a sideline, I initially experimented in Forex. Then I earned my first five thousand rands. That was a breakthrough. I saw with skill, potential was there. Soon after I doubled my 9-5 paycheck through forex! The time had come. There was no turning back.
What kept you going when you thought about giving up?
There was never giving up for me. I come from a supportive family of seven siblings. And being the last born I have always been protected by my family shield.
At first, failure can really burst your bubble. This is when I initially stepped back. After some failure. But I don’t see it in those terms anymore. The unsuccessful moments were there as a lesson to drive ahead!
What motivates you every day to be even more successful?
What motivates me is the power to change lives. I know I can and I will. What motivates me is seeing others around me take on the mission with tools to trade. Their success is my motivation.
What do you have to say to all of the people who doubted you?
I can share the knowledge I have gained when they are ready. And they will see the fruit of their doubts that empowered me
What advice do you give to aspiring creatives who look up to you?
Life is filled with serenity and somberness too. It’s part of the package. A recipe for endurance. Stay sober, know your facts and get ahead in the full steam of present! The escarpment of the past may have been there, but were building blocks of what made you and didn’t break you
Progress because you can. Do not give up. Losing means to learn from it. Turbulence cannot be accepted as a norm. Rise above! Because you can. There are no limits.
Patience , Perserverance , Commitment as accepting that being unsuccessful does not define failure but ioens up new learning paths
