Event: #DDHike 3

I love hiking so much this year I decided to include my readers in the process. 6  months ago I hosted the first DDHike it went so well I knew it had to be a regular thing. I’ve since hosted 2 more hikes and this was the last one for 2017. Check out the fun we had.

The one thing blogging made me realise is that it takes a village not only to raise a child but for personal development of an adult, for growth. If you want to learn a new skill or better yourself whether physically or mentally or emotionally, you need a community. A community can motivate you when you down ; a community can help you with tasks when you have too much on your hands. So don't be an island, grow your village, learn to delegate task and learn to ask for help. It's needed for growth. And help your fellow person.

Event: #JoziMeetup From Blog to Business

I’m such a consistent attendee of the Jozimeetups that maybe I should be a speaker at the next one. Of all the Jozimeetups I’ve attended this is the one I looked forward to attending the most and it turned out to be more than what I expected. I got to car pool with Puveshree Moodie from Lifesatreat.co.za and we arrived rather early.
