"Success for me is defined by increased value – not simply financial rewards. I think it is important to focus on the growth of African businesses and leaving a legacy rather than just trading in the moment for short term financial gain. So no, I'm not driven by a 'million dollar mindset', but rather by a strong passion to see businesses grow, reach their potential, and contribute to society and the economy as a force for good."
