Sharks 17 – WP 12: Still good business for WP

Last week I wrote that entrepreneurs are the forgotten heroes of the economy and the past weekend in a speech Pres Cyril Ramaphosa asked that entrepreneurs should be treated as heroes. Rugby produces sport heroes, but in the professional era it is also big business.

Currie Cup

About a month ago I wrote that no team can always win, not even the All Blacks. Unfortunately the one that the WP lost was the final, yet the good work they did beforehand, was instrumental in securing two matches with higher revenues ... continue reading

Whose money?

Many years ago I employed someone in my small company who was formerly a director in a big organisation. A friend then gave a kind warning and said that one should be watchful when employing someone from such a background.

He is used to spending other people’s money, money that he did not work for himself.

People who start their own businesses know what hard work it takes to get enough clients to support your business to make it sustainable. Because you are responsible for debts incurred, you ... continue reading

When your business, organisation or church, plan for next year, do you only plot the same outdated activities on next year’s calendar, or do you use your creativity to plan something new and original.

Nobody likes stale bread and nobody likes a stale program.

No team can always win

I am always interested by what makes people support a certain business or sports team. One sure thing is that people love to support a winning team, but no team can always remain at the top.

Springbok Rugby

Over the last couple of years many people were disillusioned by the performance of the Springbok rugby team.

Yet after they recently beat the All Blacks in New Zealand the tickets for the Springboks’ next match against the Wallabies were sold out within days.

As I’ve said, no team can always win. ... continue reading
