JULIE RETIEF

Na aanleiding van ‘n paar kleiner onsuksesvolle besighede in Mosselbaai wat hulle deure onlangs moes sluit, het ek baie bekommerd begin soek na redes en oplossings.

Na alles is ek ook die eienaar van ‘n klein besigheid en ervaar ek ook soms…nee, gereeld, die druk wat daarmee saamgaan. Maar ek kan nie, mag nie, wil nie ook daar eindig nie.

Wat is die oplossing dan en wat bepaal sukses ?
In my soeke vir antwoorde kom ek toe tot die volgende gevolgtrekking …
Maak nie saak uit watter omgewing jy kom, wat jou sosiale intelligensie is, of jy mooi en gesond is, en of jy ‘n hoë IK het nie.
Vasbyt….dis wat nodig is vir sukses …vasbyt !!

Vasbyt beteken passie en deursettingsvermoë met langtermyn doelstellings. Dit is om stamina, en moed van jou oortuigings te hê, en om te onthou wat jou idée vir die toekoms is, dag ná dag. Om regtig hard te werk om daardie toekoms ‘n werklikheid te maak.

Nie net ‘n week of ‘n maand lank nie, maar jare aaneen. (Inteendeel daar word gereeld verwys na 1000 dae voordat jy werklik die vrugte begin pluk.)

“Vasbyt is om die lewe te leef asof dit ‘n marathon is, nie ‘n naelloop nie”.

THE WHALE RALLY

HARTENBOS 5 – 7 JUNE 2015

Ulysses Garden Route, proudly hosts the 11th Whale Rally in Hartenbos.
Whale Rally time is always in June, in the middle of the winter, but they always have such a good time that the cold is never a problem.

The Whale Rally is a serious biker’s rally, started in 2005. One of the best biker rallies in South Africa they claim. Not hardcore, just a rally where you can relax, have fun and enjoy an unforgettable weekend with biker friends.

Over the years this rally has grown from strength to strength with around 1500 bikers having attended some years.
All proceeds from the rally are donated to needing Charities within the Ulysses Garden Route boundaries.

Their aim is to host “The Rally” in the Western Cape – considered by many to be the best, and where there is something for everyone to do.

Ulysses Garden Route is rather unique in that it is not centered in a single town or city, as is the case with most of the other chapters. They have members in Mossel Bay, Oudtshoorn, George, Knysna and Plettenberg Bay.

Their slogan, “GROW OLD DISGRACEFULLY”. This naturally causes many smiles, much head shaking, finger pointing and respectful disbelief from the uninformed public. No, they say, we are definitely not a bunch of undisciplined hooligans, we just know how to have a good time!

All members are over forty (you can’t join if you are younger).
For them it is the open road, the excitement and the friendship that comes with great companionship of others who wish to enjoy the biking way of life.

BEHUISINGSPLAN MAAK VOORSIENING VIR AGTERPLAASBEWONERS

Die Mosselbaaise Munisipaliteit se behuisingsplan maak voorsiening vir die bou van 1 312 huise in Uitbreiding 13, wat hoofsaaklik aan agterplaasbewoners in die D’Almeida-gebied, wie se name op die munisipale waglys verskyn, toegeken sal word.

Dit blyk uit die Munisipaliteit se opgedateerde behuisingsplan oor tien jaar wat in April 2015 deur die Raad goedgekeur is.

Volgens die plan word die behuisingprojek, wat ook middelinkomstebehuising insluit, vir die 2016/2017 boekjaar beplan in Uitbreiding 13 teenaan Louis Fourieweg in die Louis Fouriewegkorridorgebied. Die huise sal toegeken word aan mense op die bestaande behuisingswaglys wat deur die Munisipaliteit bygehou word.

Hierdie eenhede is bykomend tot die behuisingsprojekte waarmee die Munisipaliteit reeds besig is of sal begin, en waar sekere projekte vir voltooiing in die 2015/2016 finansiële jaar geskeduleer is. Die huidige projekte sluit 154 wooneenhede in Herbertsdale, 152 eenhede in Sonskynvallei, waarheen die Powertown-inwoners verskuif sal word, en 1 561 eenhede in die Asazani/Izinyoka-projek in.

Die behuisingsplan maak ook voorsiening vir die aanvang van ‘n projek in Sonskynvallei in 2016/2017 vir ongeveer 696 eenhede.
Onderhewig daaraan dat die nodige fondse van die Nasionale Departement van Menslike Nedersetting deur middel van die Provinsiale Departement van Menslike Nedersetting bekom word, maak die plan voorsiening vir altesame 10 611 wooneenhede tot aan die einde van die 2019/2020-boekjaar teen ‘n geraamde koste van R541,4 miljoen. Die eenhede sluit voltooide wonings asook gedienste erwe in.

Die projekte is onderhewig daaraan dat die nodige befondsing van die Staat bekom word aangesien munisipaliteite deur wetgewing verbied word om interne fondse vir die bou van topstrukture aan te wend.

Die behuisingsplan word gereeld hersien, en opgedateer na gelang van veranderende omstandighede.

12 Mei 2015 is beslis ‘n datum wat onthou gaan word in die Suid-Kaap. Besigheidsvroue het by die Wildernis Hotel bymekaar gekom om die eerste “South African Council of Business Woman” – tak, in die Suid Kaap te stig.

Wilna Grobler, die voorsitter van die Suid Kaap tak, het die oggend geopen met skriflesing en gebed. Angelique Grobler het die ys gebreek met lagterapie. Cerita Naggy, die president van SACBW, het vir almal teenwoordig ‘n oorsig gegee van die organisasie en waarvoor dit staan: (hieronder is die besonderhede)

Dit was ‘n baie spesiale geleentheid aangesien Me Rika Venter (stigter) ook teenwoordig was.

Melissa Morton was die spreker van die dag met: “My message to you today is to be self-aware, know who you are and what you stand for. Be authentically you, because you have unique strengths that will lead you to greatness”.

The SACBW is a non-profit organisation. They have a partnership with The Job Club that focuses on job creation, training and business opportunities. The council was established with the intention and goal to find an organisation that represents women in business and create a vehicle for women to network, learn from each other, grow and mentor other women in the field of business. Their slogan “Unlocking potential” is key to this organisation as it is the explicit goal to see women grow to their full potential, reach their goals and succeed in business.

The South African Council for Businesswomen (SACBW) is an inclusive, dynamic, vibrant and powerful agent of change in the South African business environment and is represented nationally by successful business women. Membership is open to women entrepreneurs, corporate women and professional women. The Council offers development for all levels of businesswomen where they can learn, grow and be challenged to excel in a supportive and uplifting environment. At the SACBW we promote the business interests of our members in particular and the economy of South Africa in general.

The SACBW is the only women’s organisation affiliated to the AHI chamber of commerce, enabling us to participate at the highest level of influence in South African Commerce.

The SACBW was founded by Rika Venter in 1985. First known as the “SA Raad vir Sakevroue,” the name was later changed to the “SA Council for Business Women” to represent our inclusive approach for the 21st Century. From its founding days till now, the SACBW has represented women in business and created a platform for development, growth and opportunities for members.
