Young business woman wants women to put themselves first
The teachings and virtues we are taught by elders always shape us to become great contributors in society and Nonhle Zulu is a living testimony of this. The strong virtues instilled in her by her grandmother and mother have helped her be of service to others, grow as a woman in business and a woman in society.
“My granny taught me that the true beauty of a woman is reflected in her soul. Learn to be kind and be respectful to the next person, having ubuntu doesn’t a cost you anything,” she said.
Zulu is a Human Resources Business Partner (HRBP) at one of the top banks in South Africa and a part time stylist which she says has always been her passion.
“The arts have always been my passion and over the years I shied away from it because I wanted financial stability but even corporate couldn’t keep me away from my first love. I decided to pursue styling as my side hustle, I fed my creative side and that was the best decision ever, “she added.
The creative says the most important attributes of a successful woman in business are integrity and authenticity as this makes you different from others.
“Let your uniqueness be your voice, let it be heard when you get a seat at the table. Your greatest power is being you, don’t give that away so easily”, Zulu explained. She keeps herself growing by surrounding herself with people that constantly motivate her to be the best version of herself and by reading books that help her embrace change.
Molded by strong women, Zulu encourages women to constantly evaluate themselves from comfort zones and strive for better ways to achieve heart desires.
“I’ve found for the longest time women have put themselves secondary or even last in their lives in the name of supporting their loved ones and I don’t believe that’s a healthy way of living your life,’’she said
A young dynamic God fearing woman who gloats about the power of prayer and the women who touched her life Nonhle Zulu aims to touch more lives through styling and guidance.
