I am so excited and proud to announce that on Wednesday, 15th April 2020, I will be launching my new book in which I will be taking you through my journey from humble upbringings in Soweto all the way to the streets of Milan. There will be step-by-step tips to help those of you who want to build your digital brands as influencers, insights on how to monetize your feed, some tough but invaluable lessons I learnt as an entrepreneur, what my consulting business entails, how I curated the lifestyle and business I love and so much more.

Though I’m a bit sad that we won’t be having a book-launch event as I had initially anticipated due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The good news, however, is that the DIGITAL VERSION of the book will be available for purchasing from this coming Wednesday. It will also be available in retail stores when businesses are back in full operation. Oh, there’s also a special discount on the book, so go get it asap! For pre-orders, click on the link in my Profile bio. You can also purchase it on Amazon or Snapplify.
In acknowledging those who made this moment possible, I would like to extend my gratitude and thanks to @BasetsanaKumalo in penning out the foreword to my book. Your unwavering support and love never goes unnoticed! Thank you for the beautiful words in setting the tone in introducing the book.

Lastly, I want to thank my co-author @lebo_grand for partnering with me in putting this book together. We had a lot of fun writting it and even became best of friends through the process. Cannot wait to engage with you all on this beautiful milestone in my life! To God Be The Glory!
