“If you are a successful young woman, you’re my inspiration,” says young entrepreneur
A passionate financial controller by day and owner of Nocca Accessories after hours Nomcebo Fakude has zero regrets as lessons have shaped her into the woman she is today.
The charismatic entrepreneur says if a woman out there has a business idea they should do it today and worry about everything else later.
“You have to believe in yourself and your business idea enough to be able to risk it all. You’d be surprised at how many people are looking for the exact same product or service idea that you’ve been holding on to,” she said
Fakude generates business ideas by studying other businesses that are doing the same thing, draws inspiration from them and sets her own standards. She believes in listening to her customers, letting them tell her exactly what they need.
To Fakude, life is about turning losses into lessons and for this reason she says she has zero regrets.
“It’s the decisions that I don’t take that lead to unanswered questions. It is how you get up from a fall that your true character is strengthened,” she added.
Consistency has played a big role in keeping her motivated and on track. Today she hasn’t only set and achieved goals but she’s celebrating victories and moving on to the next goals on her list.
