Funeral home first to be fixed on

2010-09-13 00:00

FIX My Biz is a reality television show with a difference — instead of an individual winning a prize, has joined forces with Nedbank Small Business Services to help businesses overcome serious challenges.

Often entrepreneurs have wonderful plans but lack the knowledge to grow their business. Fix My Biz aims to fill this gap by making professional and experienced resources available to the business.

Says Lynn Gaines, manager of local productions,, “We believe that the more we grow the smaller businesses in South Africa, the greater benefits the country will reap.

“We’ll reap these benefits in the form of jobs and sustainable businesses that will contribute immeasurably to the economy.”

The show is hosted by Andile Masuku, who has a B.B.A. in management from Helderberg College, and has plied his trade in public relations, marketing, television presenting and even vocal performing. He is assisted by Bill Gibson, a successful entrepreneur, author and innovative sales professional, Thayn Niemand a respected advocate and expert in business and financial planning and managing executive of Nedbank Small Business Services, Sibongiseni Ngundze.

In the first show, which will be screened at 5.30 pm on Wednesday, September 15, Kenny Maluleka, the owner of a funeral home consultancy called Maluleka Brokers and Funeral Services, tells Masuku about his challenges, which include lack of signage, no real marketing plan and ways to increase his policyholders.
