Every now and then a woman comes along and teaches men a lesson in an industry which is dominated by males.
And Thobekile Ndlovu is one of those women- just two years after graduating, while running her own interior design consultancy, she began studying towards a qualification in advance project management.
Within just 10 years, Ndlovu walked away with the award of best women in construction in her respective province and she was even featured in Top Billing, where the beautiful home she built herself was showed.
Taking to social media, a tweep shared Ndlovu's interview with Top Billing, which gave South Africans a glimpse into the stunning mansion she built for herself.
According to destinyconnect.com, Ndlovu reached millionaire status when she was just 26. The mom of three started her business with just R300k and today it turns over R5-R20 million annually.
The 38-year-old from KwaZulu-Natal started from the bottom, but she was a go-getter from a young age and she was determined to succeed.
Her company, Thobethulani Trading, builds everything from schools to libraries and offices.
