The goal is not only to empower but to also give support to other women


Tushiyah hosted their first women only business breakfast at Killarney Country Club, on the eve of National Women’s Day. The event was graced by black and white women who refused to let their circumstances stand in the way of their dreams.


 Two women who discovered themselves brought Tushiyah into life and they are a living testimony, that purpose truly fuels passion. They still continue to thrive for the best and help make other women’s dreams a reality. Entrepreneur, life couch, and motivational speaker, Pumla Ngesi spoke about three things that are significant for women in business – passion, purpose and partnership.


“If the thing that is the core business of your economic activities is not what we are passionate about, we tend to struggle. When I discovered that I love speaking, I made a point of speaking and finding something to speak about, I did not try to be anything else”, Pumla said.


The business breakfast was awe-inspiring, quite frankly a great way to start the day. The occurrence was filled with so many words of wisdom and good food. A panel discussion was open between the panelists, Pumla Ngesi, Abigail Khuluse, Farzeen Bhana and the guests, where the guests were given an opportunity to ask questions they needed answers to and solutions for the problems they encounter in their businesses.


Basically, 2018 for most women has been about removing chairs from the tables, it has been about reaping the fruits of their labour. Women no longer need to go job hunting and end up doing something that is not aligned with their purpose and what they are not passionate about. Now, women can turn their passion into a profession and with hard work, dedication and perseverance they can achieve almost anything.


“If you are a starter, look for great finishers”, said Mrs Khuluse.


With all the advice, motivation and answers given to posed questions, the event ended on a great note. Memories were created and captured and of course a whole lot of networking. Even though food was served, women left hungrier than ever for success.



The goal is not only to empower but to also give support to other women. “Women empowerment can be achieved when there is attitudinal change in society”, said SACBW (South African Council for Business Women) Business Woman of the year 2014, Abigail Khuluse.
