Today Steve Reid discusses “From Hobby to a Business”. This is the 9th in a series of discussions about entrepreneurship that Steve will be presenting on Zone Radio over the next few months.
Steve is qualified in three disciplines, (Commerce; Theology and Forestry), which have all helped shape a focus and passion for raising entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial thinking. He has been involved in business coaching for the past 12 years with 4 years seeing the establishment of a successful business incubator in Port Elizabeth. He was honored as the best incubator manager in the group. (He is a MBCI and Raizcorp academy trained coach and is also a NLP practitioner.) Past beneficiaries of the Raizcorp program grew an average of >48% turnover growth, year on year and collectively generated an income in excess of R110 million Rand. He has opened a Centre for Entrepreneurship for False Bay College in 2015; and the program begins in volume this year.
He has also had the privilege of being a public speaker in both public and private institutions and have used these platforms to open up windows around the opportunity found within entrepreneurship. He writes a monthly article for a stable of 15 community papers in Cape Town. A recent addition to his writing portfolio has seen him writing for Your Business Magazine.
His book, “Entreprenacity” was launched in May 2020. Should anyone wish to purchase a copy, it is now available for R100.00 from Zone Radio.
