Making the Forbes Africa #30under30 list
When we asked Charmaine what is it that she thinks made her cut the list, she smiled and said;
“Firstly, started working when I was 13 years old, before then I’d always been active in and out of school. Today I have over 15 years of working experience. First of all, only a few people below 30 can say that. Therefore, making the list for me has been a long time coming, apart from the usual grind.
Secondly, I have coaches, people whom I learn from and who guide me in business and life. JT Foxx, the world’s #1 wealth & business coach has completely changed my life. Including all my coaches, also Samareh Lilith Rahnavardi, Greg JC Granier and Myrna Widlend
Being in business and staying in it for long is nearly impossible to go at it alone. If anyone is going to succeed they will do so with help along the way. Be it a mentor, angel investor, partner, great team and by getting business coaching.”
