Although my story was written a few years ago, it still hits home for a lot of business owners, entrepreneurs and their families.
During my business failure, a slow, ugly implosion of my hopes and my financial life, I started writing a blog which would become the book, ‘I’m Not Afraid of the F Word’. In it, I share stories and insights about the lessons I learned - both good and bad lessons - during that time.
On Monday I had the chance to share some of that with the hosts of Afternoon Express on SABC3
Even though I failed and it was painful and I am actually still paying back 2 of the business debts incurred during that time, I still believe in the value of entrepreneurial businesses and franchises and people taking an element of risk in trying to determine their own futures in this way.
We got to talk about that a little on the show, and do a little off camera coaching with one of the team afterwards.
The second guest on the show was a Bitcoin expert and so our conversation went over to crypto currencies too.
