Episode 07: Hearing from an entrepreneur on Wellness – Sipamandla Manqele Founder and CEO of Local Village Foods

I am excited that in this episode that I had an opportunity to have a meaningful conversation with the founder and CEO of Local Village Foods.

She is someone that I admire both as an entrepreneur and a dear friend. Our conversation made me realize the value of reflection as an entrepreneur. This is the practice of taking time out to understand the environment we start businesses in and to understand the value that we bring to society.

Our businesses are not just about us, they are about the staff that work in our businesses, the lives we transform, and the new economic value that we bring to our countries and the world.

Reflection truly is the key to unlocking opportunities in our businesses and society.
