Hallo! I’m pleased to write this note to introduce our 4th edition of Fempreneurs magazine. Our theme this month is going to be about not giving up on your goals even when the going gets tough. This month the topic is especially dear to my heart because this December we were meant to be doing our 11th edition, but we’re only doing our 4th after a 7 month break. Have we been dead in the interim? No we’ve been working the millions of tiny baby steps which are much like those thousands of invisible stitches that hold a designer dress together. The passion with which we First launched our magazine still grips our team as does the fervent desire to see
women rise up out of the ashes.
So what will we share with you in this mid-summer edition? Two inspirational stories of women who have built businesses from scratch and who do not even think of limits to their vision. Mrs Ethel Mupambwa, the dynamic MD of Moneymart (article on page 13), Ms Nolwandle Sachikonye the exotic designer and founder of a classy clothes line Avelyn in Newlands (article on page 11). Our parenting article discusses a topic that grips us with fear and yet needs to be addressed, protecting your child from those who would want to harm him/her.
The rebirth of Zimbabwe as a nation led by a new Head of Government has moved us as Fempreneurs to push harder to ensure that we give our readers their monthly dose of inspiration, advice and networking opportunities. Be sure to attend one of the events highlighted on Page 20. It will surely change your circles in a positive way. Do you want to become a female Government Minister? See Page 18 and go for it!It is my deepest most sincere wish that December be a special month for all you women in business, that you don’t get tired and give up on your new year’s resolutions. There’s still 4 weeks to go and we can still tick some worthwhile goals off our to-do list. Happy reading!’
