Defining Moment – Have Faith

My story begins Jan ‘13. I leave for a SA tourism roadshow to India.

One year later Jan ‘14 I woke up blind. You would not think that the two are related. But I had contracted TB whilst in India. The TB meds caused a massive hemorrhage behind my eyes, […]

I remember sitting in my car on my mobile phone, listening to someone at the end of a long conversation say to me, “Well, if you do that, then you’re being naïve, and it may mean that we don’t work together in the future.”.

Defining Moments – Do not Wait !

I experienced one of my major life defining moments in 2015, when I realised that I could not wait anymore…

How did I get there? I had started a new corporate job a few months earlier.  After realising at an early stage that it was […]
