True entrepreneurship is the ability to resist the temptation to give up when the going gets tough. Covid-19 as a ‘market force’ was not taught in any MBA programme anywhere in history. Our Epson entrepreneurs – Linda Moeketsi, Sibu Mabena and Roxy Ferreira – answer the questions which you may want to know about the trials and tribulations of a small business owner, and they answer them as their businesses are having to pivot and adjust to global circumstances not seen since the second World War. As in life, the core business rules are simple… build relationships and keep them.More Info

This week we saw the biggest decline on the markets since the global financial crisis of 2008. If you are a long term investor, don’t panic. Tito’s speech contained no tax increase… what a miracle. Can he cut the public sector wage bill though? How much more debt can South Africa take on before the Rand blows out? Sasol have had another shocker.
