This is the content we like to see online. A man served major business goals on Mzansi Twitter on Tuesday.
Lekau Sehoana detailed how his business, DRIP FootWear, has grown in the past eight months and his post left thousands of South Africans stunned and inspired. Earlier this year, Sehoana was still working from his bedroom and then he rented a warehouse the size of a small RDP house.
However, he quickly branched out and within only months, Sehoana went from a start-up entrepreneur to a successful business owner. Today, he employs 44 people, sells his stock at six retail stores and has four delivery vehicles.
Take a look at the post below:
Sehoana added that his company is 100% proudly South African. While reacting to a comment, the entrepreneur revealed that all the employees in his business are locals.
"100% South Africans. From our cleaners to management."
Sehoana's tweet gathered over 21 000 likes at the time of publishing and South Africans were inspired by his hustle.
He even got the attention of Mzansi muso Cassper Nyovest, who retweeted and praised him online.
"Power!!" - Nyovest commented.
The Siya Trenda singer is not the only one who was inspired by Sehoana's story. Mmusi Maimane reacted to his post, writing he is proud of Sehoana.
Take a look at Maimane's comment below:
South Africans joined Maimane and Nyovest and flooded the businessman's comment section with messages of praise.
Twitter user, @Bhelekazi_13, commented:
"Are you telling me your business was started this year January? Hayibo, look at hard work and God, congratulations my brother may you grow even bigger in Jesus' mighty name, amen."
Sehoana is not the only hardworking entrepreneur who had to start out small. Briefly.co.za previously reported on a 20-year-old woman, @NiaTheLocGod, who took to Twitter to share a picture of the warehouse she purchased for her hair product business.
The post, which was captioned, "From a bedroom to a warehouse," received over 100 000 reactions from Twitter folk who congratulated Nia on her success.
Nia also mentions how her warehouse has reached nearly full capacity in only six weeks since her purchase.
