Podcast | Mistakes to avoid with your own business


In our fifth City Press/Absa Money Makeover podcast, we chat to Elton Govender, senior enterprise development specialist at Absa, to provide some tips to those of us who are self-employed or running our own businesses.

Elton shares the guidance and tools he has developed to help our entrepreneur contestant Bellah turn her business around.
