From all of us at Ideate, the authors and the entrepreneurs, the readers and contributors, the brave and the stupid, the rich and the soon to be rich – we say thanks for another great year.
We’ve continued this year in the vein that we started, supporting the little guy, that unsung hero of the South African economy, representing the fighting spirit – the Lion Heart of the entrepreneur – that still beats strongly in our fledgling nation.
Personally, I’m stepping down as editor, but will continue to contribute as an author. Thanks to Fred and the Ideate crew for the opportunity over the past year, it’s been great to be part of the Ideate story. My entrepreneurial work at Water-Berry is taking up most of my time, so I’m handing over the reigns to my successor in the New Year.
Until then, take care, be safe and think BIG!
