Learn how Pearl got her hustle together to birth EventsByPearl:
Tshepang is a 22 year old young lady, a media graduate, the founder and director of EventsByPearl. My zest for knowledge and hunger for success is what lead me into my first venture of entrepreneurship. The entrepreneur in me has strong interest to bring different tools together to solve a problem or address a challenge. I am always looking for greater experience to allow me to grow and improve my skills.
It all started recently, on the 31st April 2018 I decided to register my company. My passion for events and media resulted in starting the business. When I was still a student part of our assignments included planning and executing events and getting relevant media coverage for the event that’s when I realised my passion for events and media. After 3 years of studying I went into the corporate industry to learn how media events are actually executed and that’s when I knew that I wanted to start a company around events and media.
Besides the start-up capital it has been marketing my business.
A lot of my savings have went into growing my business I’ve also researched and applied for different grant programmes. In that manner I overcame the start-up capital challenges. Social Media presences and interaction has helped with getting clients, I also do a lot of networking when I attend events in addition to that I send proposals to many organisations and that has helped me in getting clients.
I pray. I was single-handedly raised, fed, and educated by my mom, she has been my source of motivation and inspiration. Moreover, a great amount of money and effort has been put into ensuring that EventsByPearl becomes enormously successful so giving up is just not an option.
EventsByPearl is only 2 months old (smiles). So far I am proud of a business pitch that I won. I recently won a 30 second business pitch with the SAB Entrepreneurship Programme, which is a programme that provides various elements of business support to entrepreneurs. It was very fulfilling to know that not only do my friends and family believe in the success of EventsByPearl but there are other organisations and successful entrepreneurs that believe that with my dedication and hard-work EventsByPearl will succeed.
Thank you, I attend a lot of events that enable me to network with my potential clients, I also try to get article placements that enable people to know who Tshepang Pearl Aphane is and what EventsByPearl is all about, besides that I use social media to engage and interact with clients and through social media I signed my very first client (smiles).
Growing up I wanted to be an actress and radio personality I definitely would have followed that but defiantly not a 9-5, I strongly believe in having freedom to create my own destiny, for me having an employer is limiting and I realised that very early in my career so I definitely don’t think I would follow a traditional career for a long period of time.
Surround yourself with positive people if you want to succeed. Quite often you become like the people you surround yourself with. Whether you’re just starting out or have an idea the importance of surrounding yourself with the right people really can’t be underestimated.
Growth, lots of growth.
