This is how I earn a living, supplementing my small pension. Don't need to be Big to be successful.
I am not a supplier to Big Business, Municipalities or Government.
My customers are small businesses in the Nursery and Landscaping field. Or folks starting out.
Some small export agents too. We're all just trying to make a living. Most of us can't get "jobs"
I am not ashamed to be small. In fact I love it. I am 73 years old this year (end of July).
I do what I want to, not what others tell me I have to. I am my own boss.
I certainly don't want to be chasing after big business or to amass a fortune any more. I just want to help.
And have a little fun along the way.
I have survived Bankruptcy, Cancer, Chemotherapy and more. I'm still here.
Maybe not all there, but still here. We all have challenges.
I hope I can continue to give service for many years to come. But I need a little support.
Not with the trappings of big business like overdrafts, loans, capital injections, business plans or anything else.
Just a few smaller customers to keep me going. I'm not looking for handouts.
I appreciate that a few of us have fallen victim to the economy, politics and the rest over the last 2-3 years.
We will overcome, if we stand together. Time to stop the fighting, bickering and finger pointing.

I have been a part of the Nursery Industry since the early seventies. Now retired.
I was presented with a Gold Medal in 2010, and have honorary membership of SANA.
Although no longer involved in the Association, I still support the Industry.
Especially the smaller growers, landscapers and export agencies.
I run this business from my garage at home. Just like we started in 1976. Harry, Pat and I. Selling Pots.
Big business will look after big business. Politicians after themselves.
We need all the support we can get. From each other and bigger businesses. And Government.
We cannot do it all by ourselves. No-one can.
We also have a future. It's not only for the youngsters. Or the rich and famous. Or the greedy.
I support and promote small business in South Africa. I hope you'll support me, if you can.
Our future depends on it. Young and Old.
