Two powerful women got together recently to help encourage South African women to stay strong and upbeat in the face of adversity, to help build a stronger South Africa. Well known Business Woman, Entrepreneur, Philanthropist, Actress and Keynote Speaker, Sorisha Naidoo was the Guest Speaker on the popular Women In Business monthly virtual Workshop hosted by powerhouse in the Business World and Women’s Empowerment Warrior, Margaret Hirsch.
Margaret, who recently spent a week working with her staff and the community at large refurbishing and revamping the Hirsch’s Springfield Park branch that was totally trashed during the riots in mid-July, said that there was nothing South African women could not do if they put their minds to it.
Sorisha, who worked in the corporate world before starting her own business in the cosmetics/ skin care industry said that balancing family life and a strong successful business was a matter of putting a strategy in place. “Being consistent is key. Plan your week and stick to your plan. You will be amazed at how much you can fit into your day if you plan ahead. Also, make hydration a top priority. Drink water throughout the day to keep you fit and healthy.” Sorisha also told the audience that staying ahead of the pack and ahead of one’s competitors required taking oneself out of basic mode. “Keep reading, keep blogging, don’t let failure get you down – use it to your advantage. Most importantly, don’t let your ego get in the way. Use Social Media to IMPACT people, not impress them.” She concluded.
