Gloria’s Cottage Craft Trading is owned by Gloria A Freestone, She began Cottage Craft some 14 years ago. She studied Herbalism for 5 years and was last year awarded a South African Bush Doctors Certificate allowing her to make up her herbal products.

She has decided to widen her scope of trading, outside of just her own manufactured Herbal remedies, to earn extra retirement revenue, unfortunately the RA’s did not perform as planned.

In any event she also makes Home Crafts and is an avid Hobbyist. Her latest Hobby is painting river stones into delightful Ladybugs, Owls and Mushrooms.

She was recently asked to make a “Fairy House” from a Stump which turned out excellently as she has a lot of artistic talent.

Just a little about Us – Gloria’s Cottage Craft Trading –  and our Herbs

Welcome to Gloria’s Cottage Craft Trading. 

We have been trading since 2010.   I started out very small and obtained my herbs from an Organic Herb Farmer in the Britz, South Africa area.    I originally just made up herb tea packs, but soon realized that my customers were starting to ask for herbal remedies.

The site includes:

Watches, Jewellery, Men and Woman’s Fashion, Gifts, Toys, Mobile phones, Laptops, Tablets and  host of other product

I have been helping start-ups for years so decided I would start simply with my wife’s business and go step by step to get this into the Public Domain.

This is being started with no capital but using the skills we have both developed over the years including my getting a Wordpres training from Shawn Fouche and an Advanced Digital Marketing Diploma from Shaw Academy. The diploma is NVQ4 rated and accepted in the Eu as a Degree course.

So whilst I normally work with struggling, already existing businesses medium to large,  I can apply a certain amount of time to pro-bono work with good start-up ideas. So send me a mail with your idea and if this sounds worthwhile – to me. I am the sole judge as I am giving a certain number of hours, Pro-Bono. As a Senior IDC Expert, it is expected of me , in any event.. So lets talk. I do warn you though – Not everyone will be chosen.

So let me start telling You about IDC. But before we do I must tell you that I am not employed by IDC neither do I profess to be a complete GURU at their needs and do the very best for my Clients. In the past 5 years, I have raised over R800 million for SME’s.

IDC Overview

It is no use looking for funding at IDC  unless a couple of hard coded rules are followed and these are:

Minimum requirements

  1. Security; the form and nature of which will relate to your specific circumstances;
  2. Compliance with international environmental standards;
  3. Shareholders/owners are expected to make some financial contribution:- The contribution of historically disadvantaged people under special circumstances may be lowered, in which case the corporation will be prepared to extend finance in excess of the owner’s contribution.
  4. The project/business must exhibit economic merit in terms of profitability and sustainability;
  5. We do not refinance fixed assets, since our aim is to expand the industrial base; and
  6. We also focus on broad-based and expansionary black economic empowerment and black industrialists.

The Power of Vision.

https://www.mjfgroup.biz/powerofvision

The Power of Vision is what serves several purposes in an organisation. First and foremost, it captures the organisations future intent. In other words, it paints a picture of what the company intends to become, not what it is today.https://www.mjfgroup.biz/dailyquotes/howyoudefine the problem

This topic has been written about by Authors, Songwriters and Preachers so it is not new.

  1. The Power of Vision by Joel Barker – Star Thrower Distribution.
  2.   Myles Munroe: ‘The Power of Vision’
  3.   The Power Of A Vision – Jesus Culture,
  4. Power of a Vision | Leaders Living Life Fully – Eternal Leadership
  5. The Power of Vision | A Sermon | Pastor Taiwo Kayode — House On …

A Common red line through just the few I have highlighted here.

A vision should stand the test of time and perpetuate the enterprise over a long period of time. A vision can serve a multiple of purposes:

  1. A vision bonds. Companies are populated with individuals possessing a diversity of skills, languages, cultures and personalities. A vision can give people a common cause and direct their energies towards a unifying goal.
  2. A vision inspires. Although corporations measure their progress over time with numbers – growth, profits, or both- numbers do not generally inspire ordinary people to do extraordinary things. But, a more noble vision and strategy can inspire beyond one’s expectations.
  3. A vision is an anchor. When times are difficult, a vision gives an organisation an anchor that will steady the ship and hold everyone together until the storm passes.
  4. A vision is a potent competitive tool. Having a sense of what one wants to become when grown up gives the organisation an enormous competitive edge and advantage over those that as my daughter says ‘haven’t got a clue’.

The Power of Vision.

Required attributes of a successful vision.

A vision

  1. Will mobilise a large population of people who might not have any other attachment to the organisation than that it is their job and source of income,
  2. Must have certain attributes in order to get ordinary people to do extraordinary things.
  3. A power of a vision must be clear. The vision cannot be ambiguous. Most people in an organisation do not want to be leaders – they simply want to be good followers. As such, what they want to know from their leaders is: “Where are you taking me so I can decide whether I want to follow you there?” As a result, the leader must design a clear vision that can quickly and clearly be understood by all employees.
  4. A power of a vision must be compelling. A goal of becoming a Billion-Rand company will not motivate ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Numbers are usually not compelling enough to mobilize large groups of people to want to achieve beyond their capabilities. In order to motivate people to overachieve, the vision must ‘compel’ people to want to overachieve voluntarily. Thus the reason for Steve Jobs attracting John Scully to join Apple, even though he gave up a very lucrative job with Pepsi – not with promises of a large financial incentive, but rather with the “opportunity to change the world”. What foresight Steve Jobs exhibited in those days back in 1971. That is exactly what the PC industry, led partially by Jobs and Apple, has done.
  5. A power of a vision must be distinctive. Not many people want to work for an imitator, where every transaction the company engages in turns out to be based strictly on price. That is not a fun world! The best companies have a distinctive vision that does not attempt to imitate their competitors but sets them apart from these competitors. Like the super racehorse Secretariat, their notion of competition is not run side by side with their competitors but, rather lead the next best competitor by 31 lengths, pulling farther and farther ahead of each business cycle. As Samuel Johnson once said, “No man has achieved greatness by imitating another man.”
  6. A power of a vision must be consistent. A vision that is constantly being adjusted is usually not going to impress anyone, PARTICULARLY YOUR OWN TROOPS. Visions that are forever changing reflect the lack of forward thinking and will become the butt of everyone’s corporate joke – the proverbial “vision of the week.”
