How do we become Entrepreneurs? Part 3/3
How do I become an Entrepreneur!!!

As part of the process, we need to create a system where South Africans are no longer afraid of the Labour Legislation.
The Western Labour legislation and human-rights organizations will not address this problem as it is a subject that exposes their political agendas, and thus, the unemployed will need to give consideration to this option and take the initiative to create your own economic freedom through becoming an entrepreneur.
Our black elders will tell you that survival required you to assess the employer, understand who he/she was, what they wanted, and in your approach satisfy their needs.
Bheki, Jabu, Ali, Sithole and others use the term “pretend” for the approach that is used.

The Draft Agreement and annexure attached topic, uses a Garden Service as an example, but the principle will allow us to access all areas of the economic sector by encouraging the South African, afraid of the labour laws, to use you as an contractor, and will allow us to target the labour broker sector, dominant in the security, cleaning, retail, restaurant sector, you name it.

Identify where labour brokers are presently operating, many of you will have worked for labour brokers in various industries, security, cleaning, cashiers, stock packers, waiters, the opportunity is unlimited. Find a user of these services, and prepare yourself and your contractor group to offer the service directly to the client.

The world economy is going to force all businesses to reduce costs, you could replace the portion of costs presently part of the labour broker industry, and start you business as a contractor.

Remember, ATTITUDE, RESPONSIBILITY, and more importantly, sacrifice for the first seven years.

On the domestic front, you will be in the position to target a community, ensuring that you fill your five days per week, and as you succeed, you can employ a sub-contractor and extend your area, allowing the more productive use of your equipment.

In a few years, you could invest in a bakkie and extend your operation.


There will be structures that will tell us that it is illegal to enter into an agreement that conflict with our legislation, even though some restrictive legislation makes it impossible to earn a living.
I believe that we have a constitutional right that allows us to enter in an agreement that will allow us to earn a living, at a rate that we are prepared to work at in order to get the business.

As we develop a reputation for good quality work, efficient productive work, our value will increase proportionally.
We already have hundreds of thousands of South Africans operating in the informal sector where they are entirely depended on their productive skills to achieve any income.

An informal trader selling tomatoes on the street side, would he/she earn more than R 50 per day?
A seamstress, buying materials, producing garments and failing to sell the garments?
If the informal sector needed to be guaranteed a minimum wage related to the industry in which they operated, they would no survive.

The successful Entrepreneur build his/her business off the base of ‘sacrifice’, that is why the Asian culture is successful, add to that the Portuguese, the Greeks, the Pakistanie, The Somalie.

We, as South Africans need to make sacrifices, if we wish to compete.
