A South African woman called Nosipho Kholutsoane served up all sorts of inspiration and motivation after the story of how she managed to start a successful vintage car restoration business.
According to the Facebook post, Nosipho began the business with only R2 000 in her pocket, which she had borrowed from her husband. This came after she had watched a TV show about car restoration. She then used the R2 000 to buy a rusted 1947 Pontiac. The rest, so to say, is history, reports IOL.
"Five years later, Kholutsoane, 39, employs four people in her business Lereku Trading Classic Cars, has a customer base of vintage car enthusiasts from all over the world, and is currently completing the Small Business Academy’s (SBA) Development Programme of the University of Stellenbosch Business School," writes USB Small business academy on Facebook.
Nosipho's success has seen many Facebookers congratulating her on reaching for goals and dreams that more often than not seem too far away to obtain. Here are some of the comments they wrote.
