Local Businesses

Boss Lady!

Through my work with Rare Diseases SA I have met some truly beautiful people, & Keri is one of those.  She has helped me through so much, kept me laughing & is constantly taking me over to the dark side with her gin nights out!  She is someone I look up to & has such a kind heart, whilst being super mum to twin boys (eek!) & running her own business.  Talk about winning…16299230_10154047362502260_4382373903999741467_n

She is full of helpful advice & her knowledge of tax, accounting & general business issues is amazing.  I feel truly blessed to have her as a friend & I KNEW she was someone I wanted to feature during my women’s month round up.  Get to know her (& her business) a little better below.

Your business name: Office Executives Services
What do you do: Office Executives is a specialist outsource business support company. Unfortunately the statutory obligations of a SME are the same as as large corporate. We focus on businesses which are in a startup or growth phase and ensure every aspect of your business aligns with your overall strategy.
How long have you been doing this: 10 Years
Why do you love what you do: I love seeing business grow from strength to strength and seeing the owners and managers develop as business people, learning from what we do for them, and in time being able to do it themselves.
Where did your passion for this come from: Each one of my clients’ passion for their business inspires me. I am passionate about seeing others succeed and once my clients’ businesses are more organised and running smoothly, their passion drives their business to greater success. I feel I can share in a part of their growth and success.
Any advice for the general public that don’t understand the importance of this: Non compliance is a massive risk for any small business. If you have started off incorrectly, you could stand to lose your business. Only two things in life are certain: Death and Taxes. Don’t let anyone stunt or take your business from you when you have poured your heart and soul into it.
What do you like to do in your spare time: I am a mom to the most amazing twin boys and my spare time I generally spend with them, they inspire me and push me to succeed in ways that no one else ever could. I want to make my boys proud.

Quote you live by: “Great things in business are never done by one person. They are done by a team of people.” Steve Jobs
Anything else you want to add: Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. Struggling with something which distracts you from your passion, when that task is in fact someone else’s passion, is a waste of your talent and time. We believe in creating an environment where you can focus on your business, and the things which matter to you, we can handle the rest. Go out there and make big things happen. Create magic. Be the best version of YOU that you can be.

Keri, you constantly inspire me!  Thank you for reminding us all about the importance of taking care of ourselves & our business.  Looking forward to our next time together xx16427767_10154047363057260_4636405659643844125_n

I am a fun-loving, sometimes crazy, 30-year-old that lives every moment as it comes... Unfortunately I was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis in 2004. This is about embracing my inner child; creating a bit of DIY; learning to love myself again; & not caring so much about fitting with society's expectations. I also want to showcase the amazing talent that we have in South Africa & support local wherever possible.
