Thank You for Reading this post feel free to comment :)


Wow this is a special moment in my life for me I can still remember it as clear as day.I went to register for my course at Rlabs but there was some confusion according the course details the course i had actually applied for was full and registration had closed. "I was booked for the wrong course" I remember telling the guys there at registration and I was lekker upset neh "what can you teach me about Social Media that I don't already know" I still thought to myself but was I in for a big suprise lol.Eventually after some "kind persuation"(by Gary might I add) I decided to just go ahead and do it because at that time I was at a point of such despiration to find employment that i thought what the heck.But little did i know what God had instore for me. I say this because it could only be him and through him that all these doors have opened for me ever since.Not only did I learn more than i could ever have imagined to have learnt from that course but the opportunities that came afterward where extrodinary.One of my facilitators(who owns her own SM Company) started calling me to come and co-facilitate with her part-time for her company.Then after completion of the bootcamp at Grow Academy they arranged internships (with no pay) at local NGO's for all of the participants of the bootcamp so that we could now use the skills we had learned and gain some experience and at the same time give back to empower someone else and we even got bursaries from them to do an online course with Getsmarter and UCT how cool is that.I chose FAMSA because they are an organisation so close to my heart but the day before I had to start at FAMSA I received a call with a job offering Yeah!!!!(with pay)and i thought praise God. And today I am a Social Media Account Manager and Co-facilitator at BizXnet. And non of this would have been possible if i had not walked into Rlabs that day. Rlabs has really,honestly and Awesomely RECONSTRUCTED my life. Eternally Greatfull guys.

Reconstructed above the clouds

We really got much more than we bargained for on our latest venture. It was set out to be a day of separation. No hustle and bustle of the city life and just the tranquility found on Table Mountain.

The Influence of Significance support group ” a group of young Capetonian men reconstructed from gangsterism and drugs” take this opportunity to explorer and pray over the city from Table Mountain. I personally take this as my debriefing time and what better place than Woodhead and Hely-Hutchinson dams.

They were constructed between 1896, and 1907, in order to supply Cape Town with water.
Cape Town has since grown to such an extent, that the water requirements far exceed the capacities of the dams. However, they add such beauty to the mountain top and some interesting history too. The waterworks museum, found at 800m, on the top of Table Mountain, contains fascinating memorabilia from the dam construction. From original tools and photographs, to an entire steam engine!!.

 Table Mountain is known to be a floral wonder. In a relatively small area almost 1500 plant species have been recorded. The wonder of our mountain is that if you lucky you get to see the splendor of dancing ballerina flowers as we did. This group of dances flew for different parts of the world to do a photo shoot on our NATURAL WONDER!

Social Media, the Platform.

Thanks to Social Media and the tools available to me i now can do things for myself. Just Last week i have learnt how to create a page to advertise whatever one need to advertise. I always have to rely on someone, other than myself to market my business. Been on facebook for a while now but didn't know much about advertising until last week. So, because of what i have learnt at RLabs, i can now do my own marketing. I have started by creating a page and is still busy, intending on making people aware of what i am capable of and the type of service we offer. Please search on facebook for Final Touch Caterers and support me. Thank you RLabs for empowering people like myself.
