The Problem

Starting, scaling and sustaining a business can be overwhelming

If you don’t have an accomplished coach to guide you, a coach who knows the way, you waste time chasing dead-end ideas; you burn more money than you make; you guess instead of following a proven process.

That leads to sleepless nights and feeling constantly overwhelmed. And the prospect of frustration and burnout becomes very real.

We don’t want that for you. The School of Entrepreneurship is giving entrepreneurs hope with a new way to start, scale and sustain a profitable business.

Entrepreneurship is demystified and simplified by accomplished entrepreneurs who guide you every step of the way, so you can achieve success without uncertainty or overwhelm.

From Our Students

Testimonials

Leila Blom

Backyard Farms

"In 2020 was approached by a lovely man who was involved in a big charity based feeding scheme during covid lockdown. He asked me if I wanted to start a social enterprise with him based on working in communities and townships to create gardens where they grow and sell chillies onions, basil, red pepper, tomato and herbs, we then buy their harvests and use them in our range of table and cooking sauces."

"When I was asked to help start this endeavour I decided to join the School of Entrepreneurship since I knew nothing about starting a business or where to even begin! I enjoyed the diverse topics that the School of Entrepreneurship covered and after long days out I would go home and be able to share the same struggles & learn from the other students who were facing the same challenges which was motivating."

"We started Backyard Farms as a team of three (my colleagues who are husband and wife still have their own full-time jobs, so I am the only one who is working on this project full time) but it has helped immensely to have a team who can bounce ideas of one another, so I cannot take full credit for everything that has been done. We have just recently been stocked in a Wellness Warehouse and a Pick ‘n Pay so we now employed a 4th person who is helping with the production of the sauce so that I can focus on growing the business."

Pelisa Mpumlwana

Lisas Box

"To me, to actually take the initiative & be an exhibitor at the Rand Show may sound like bragging, but it was one of my greatest milestones for 2022 & most bitter sweet business challenge."

"With the School of Entrepreneurship, I have changed my way of thinking thanks to Verity Price, one of their coaches. I recently attended the Rand Show and I was not looking for opportunities to catapult to unprecedented limited heights, instead, I was looking for business opportunities that landed me where the School of Entrepreneurship has taught me in their skill implementation sessions."

"But here is the thing also, I planned for the Rand Show & no matter how much I made plans things did not go as planned. This rang true when I had to take a bus from the Eastern Cape with Lisas Box stock to Johannesburg. This challenge showed me how much I was willing to grow in business.

In summary, Lisas Box made it’s 1st yoco sale & many more thereafter. Lisas Box got featured on African Celebration TV & made new stakeholders."
