Charmaine Kekane, a regular guest speaker at ECG youth events, dropped jaws of the Youth Magnets convened at the Town Hall for a Youth Conference in Krugersdorp on the 29th of June. At that very young age, she revealed to them that she has just bought her 11th car.
This beauty with a knack for business told everyone in attendance of the ECG Krugersdorp Branch Youth Conference that her humble beginnings were of selling hair in her home village while in high School. She advised the youths “to not waste money on unnecessary things like iPhones when you could invest that money and let it build interest”.
The 24 year old told the many attendants of the Youth conference that “growing a business is hard, which is why you must be more focused on sales than recurring expenses”.
Mesmerized by the gentle authority of the entrepreneur, the youth hung on to her every word, scribbling notes and nodding their heads in understanding.
“Charmaine taught me a business implementation strategy that she learned from papa(Prophet Shepherd Bushiri)” said Lesego, an active Youth Magnet in Krugersdorp.
It was obvious to see that this successful young lady made an impact on the attitudes of the under 35’s as they excitedly clapped hands throughout her speech.
