“Wealth is the abundance of valuable resources or material possessions, or the control of such assets.”
But I disagree, wealth is the measure of your capability to do what you want to do, when you want to do it, where you want to do it and with whom you want to do it with. The extent of your immediate available choice.
We have all been led to believe that wealth is all about material possessions, but in fact wealth is…Continue

Leading into the Easter weekend I thought I would trawl for an interesting article that would be more practical and action focused. Dr.John Aitchison's thought provoking article on Adult Basic Education and Training (ABET) certainly fits the bill. Currently we are being bombarded by SETA-based issues and coverage, it makes a really nice change to see something straightforward and targeted at resolving problems, which John is really good at.…Continue

For those of you following the current battle between embattled Services SETA CEO Dr. Ivor Blumenthal and the Minister of Higher Education and Training, Dr. Nzimande might find this article by Sue Blaine from the Business Day an interesting read.
From my perspective the report seems to focus more on the rising specter of resource control, that the behind-the-scenes objective is ultimately the Services SETA levy income and who has access and control of the levies. For me, stepping…Continue

Time - is money
So we do need to spend it wisely (Spend it) just like we would spend money.
These are some of the tips that have worked for me:
Clear my desk every evening
Make a list of jobs I need to get done the next day (Order of Priority)
Finish each task one at a time - Sales in the morning - the calls when everyone is fresh
Transfer the jobs not done on the one day to the next day.
FOR all of this I keep a large black hardcover book -…Continue

Some of the best advice given to credit providers during an economic downturn is to work smarter. This is especially important when you evaluate ways on how to cut costs and improve your employees’ performance.
Choosing distance learning over costly in-person training is one of the ways of working smarter during tough economic times in achieving your organizational goals. The capabilities and experience of your employees during these financial adverse times, make…

When I meet a new client I can almost guarantee that one of the things they are going to say to me is that they “struggle with time management”. Life just seems to be getting busier and busier and often there just seems to be more and more work to be done in a day.
This week I thought I would share with you four different coping tactics that I recommend to my clients that you can implement straight away in your business.
I have a client that is urgently looking for a provider that will take candidate attorneys through a learnership. Please get in touch with me on email@example.com. This is rather urgent. I have been through the SASSETA website but find it difficult to traverse.

Incapacity or the inability to perform the functions of a job can be the result of illness, lack of knowledge, or simply being incapable of doing the job. Not having the ability to do the job due to ill health is very different to being incapable of doing the job for some other reason. When considering the management of incapacity it is important that clarity exists.
Managing incapacity where the employee is incapable of doing the work is relatively simple and most managers…Continue
I am of the opinion that training moved from servicing the operation towards providing qualifications? There is a real difference between the two - or not?

With the onset of the National Credit Act (NCA) you may find yourself in a situation where compliance issues have a noticeable impact on the processes and procedures followed in your business when you grant credit.
The NCA provides specific guidelines in terms of credit agreements, credit granting procedures, fee structures, and consumer rights as well as on the collection of debt that you need to abide by.
Non-compliance to any of these provisions can have a severe…

We all have dreams and goals that we want to achieve in our lives. For most of us mere mortals this is a difficult, on-going process. We seem to get focused, take a few steps forward, a step back, or for some reason or other our plans seem to get de-railed completely.
Sometimes this is because of factors beyond our control but often our success or lack of it lies more with us than we realise.
Over the years, working with many different people, I have found…Continue

What do New Years Resolutions & Goals Have in Common?
Quite a lot really!
For most of us here in South Africa work pretty much grinds to a halt over the Christmas & New Year period. Through tradition New Year is the time when we evaluate our lives and set resolutions. However, 70% of people don’t even bother to do this anymore because by the 10th of January, most resolutions made have already fallen by the wayside. After a few…Continue
