How a bakkie business can change your life

Winning a brand spanking new Nissan NP200 utility bakkie is certain to be life changing. This is the kind of prize that can enhance entrepreneurial dreams, create business opportunities and be a chance for winners to start something new. 

Entrepreneurship in South Africa is critical to solving the unemployment crisis. But for many it can be an upward struggle, even when given the right tools like a bakkie. Chief Executive of Sidar Group, Carl Bates, has assisted many SMEs and startups over the years. He advises potential bakkie winners to first test their ideas before doing anything else. 

Bates says, “Ask people if they’d commit to using your services. If they say yes, then you are onto something. In terms of finances, far too many people view cash flow as a problem. Rather see money as something which flows to a good idea. Avoid debt and perhaps pre-sell your services to get things going. And always think of how to scale your business right from the start. Make sure the problem you are solving with your business has a market big enough to keep growing.”
