EXCHANGING the security provided by a regular salary for the risks associated with an own business is exactly what four courageous women decided to do.

Confidence Moloi, Masego Matheatsie, Constance Itumeleng and Mankone Mnisi, who run and own a brandnew business, said they all have one thing in common: They have the will to succeed against all odds and want to improve their lives no matter the cost.

Even previous experiences where they were unappreciated, only pushed the play button for them, leading them to open their own business.

Located in Bloemfontein’s Brandwag Park office complex, the three-week-old business has already had more than 30 clients and is steadily growing.

The hands-on partners are also working in their own business X each one with her own professional skill in the beauty industry X which is targeted at students and at working class people in general. The owners were all enthusiastic when Express visited them and shed light on some of their life encounters, which one day had led them to just say Enough is enough.

“Sometimes your creativity and ideas go to waste.

“This is one reason I disliked working for someone,’’ said Itumeleng.

In spite of everything they have experienced, they remain postive.

Their advice to all aspiring entrepreneurs is to follow your heart and to start somewhere
