On this week’s episode, we are really excited to have Leo Page join us. Leo shares his life journey of how he started his entrepreneurial journey and what the trigger point was to him taking the plunge into going on his own. Leo shares golden nuggets in the episode of going from having everything in abundance, loosing it all and then having to build back up again. The lessons shared are so insightful and inspiring and gives everyone the foundational building blocks on how to succeed. He gives us insights into his next venture and how he plans to makes the lessons he learned impactful and available to everyone. We end the episode off with one lesson that he would tell his 21-year-old self: o “Take it slow in business and take your time, don’t try to impress anybody except for yourself. Practise patience and success will come the way that they are supposed to. If you force it, you will break it.” You can reach out to Leo on the below platforms: LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/artworks-0513381a3/ Page Life Coaching https://www.pagelifecoach.com/

From selling books to software projects - This week we chat to passionate entrepreneur Jacques du Toit about his journey
On this week’s episode of Business & Beers we chat with Jacques du Toit. Jacques shares his story from running his side hustle publication and textbook business called BookIt Books while being a full-time student at University of Pretoria. He shares his story of how the business was started by a massive gap in the market and we get introduced to ‘Mr Chang’ who re-enforced the idea of the business. He goes into his story of being a natural explorer at heart, what drives him to succeed, how does he solve problems and identify gaps in the market with a passion for property. He was 1 of the first handfuls of properties to start an Airbnb in Cape Town with his mother’s house that turned into other properties that he started managing. But with Jacques’s passion and drive it was only time before he moved into his new venture of going into consulting and working with an international firm on systemizing the business and he discusses what he learnt along this new journey and how the relationships he built in that business led to his own consulting business called Source Consulting. Jacques’s story is really inspiring to show what you can achieve with drive and passion and being able to be agile in identifying gaps in the market and chasing the opportunity. Jacques shares some interesting tips with our listeners that he has learnt along his journey: 1. Keep costs low which allows you to survive most storms. 2. Personal productivity and health must be a priority, get enough sleep. 3. Value your clients and your suppliers 4. Time blocking. “In the morning usually 2 hours my phone is off, and I do priority work with no distractions”.

Where we get the Business in Business and Beers?
This episode of Business & Beers is a very special episode as we interview our very own host, Steven Van Rooyen. Steve successfully started Digidorx many years ago as a side hustle which eventually turned into his full-time job in 2019 that he has turned into a success even in a global pandemic. This podcast is filled with so many golden nuggets that Steve gives along his journey of mentors and people that helped guide his path from varsity and deciding what to study, working for different companies and agencies along the way to eventually becoming a business owner in 2019. If we could have more space in the summary, this would probably turn into an autobiography because it is that good! The podcast is filled with incredible stories that Steve shares with some good laughs and some pivotal points in his career that some people might be facing today. One that stood out for Simon was how he chose the name Digidorx which was super interesting and hopefully inspires many budding entrepreneurs out there. Top 5 lessons that Steve shares in starting his own business: 1. Being a small business owner, Cash is king. 2. Enjoy the freedom and enjoy what you do. 3. Enjoy the challenges because it is difficult, and no one teaches you this stuff. 4. The journey can get lonely so choose the people you surround yourself with carefully. 5. Appreciate the people around you like your suppliers and your clients.
