Gelykbreeksyfer as doelwit (KykNET’s Winslyn)

Dinge is nooit maklik vir ‘n kleinbesigheid-eienaar nie. Maak nie saak hoe hard jy probeer nie, daar is altyd probleme om op te los en vure om te blus. Jy kan jouself egter daaraan troos, dat jy nie alleen is nie. Elke kleinbesigheid-eienaar gaan deur presies dieselfde en om ‘n besigheid te bou bly ‘n uitdaging.

Iets te hê wat jou laat vroeg opstaan in die oggend en jou die energie gee om tot laat te werk in die aand.

Op die einde kom beide egter by dieselfde punt: ek moet my besigheid verkoop. Hoe werk die verkoop van so ‘n besigheid? Hoe kan ek myself voorberei daarvoor? En soms die grootste vraag, hoe kan ek ‘n prys bepaal?

So how did #budget2017 go for the entrepreneur? I have 2 points to comment on.

In my previous insert, I spoke about how you can start your own business. I was so surprised with the reaction the viewers had regarding BEE.

Therefore, I decided to speak about BEE and why it doesn’t have such a big influence on small businesses.
