    S03. Ep13. Solo: What time has taught me & Looking back to this Season as we wrap it up | Our Finale.

    It's the last episode of Season 3!

    Time has flown by so fast, let's reflect on this Season and also talk about what time has taught me and this period of Lockdown. 

    My biggest hope for life after this lockdown – with so much that withered and with so much that was unveiled for us. I hope that whatever we find in this season be the light that we follow into the next season. We don't have to resume on where we left off with the previous normal but rebuild a new normal for ourselves.

    This is a very short episode, do enjoy.

    From me, keep well and keep safe.

    Until then, goodbye.

    S03.Ep12. How she started a dairy free ice-cream brand known for Serving love through scoops with Sinenhlanhla Ndlela

    S03.Ep12. How she started a dairy free ice-cream brand known for Serving love through scoops with Sinenhlanhla Ndlela

    In the guest chair today we have Sinenhlanhla Ndlela who is the founder of Yococo dairy free ice-cream. With a background in TV writing and post-production, Sinenhlanhla taught herself how to make ice-cream and run a small business. What first intrigued me and I got to love the most is how she is able to creatively blend in parts of herself into the ice-cream making, that is her vegan lifestyle and the spiritual aspect. In our conversation, she mentions how she is fulfilled whenever she is in a place where she can serve and through Yococo she is able to serve love through scoops.

    This conversation was recorded months ago just after her solo-cation and you'll get to hear parts of that story.

    This is what we further spoke about;

    1. What gave her the courage to start the business without any prior experience in ice-cream making

    2. How was the ice-cream first received in the market and what were some of the challenges she encountered in getting it out there

    3. What she mainly considers for her collaborative works

    4. Her approach with setbacks

    5. How is she able to wear many hats in her business without burning out

    6. And finding purpose.

    I hope that you do take something from this conversation today, do enjoy.

    Today's podcast episode is a solo-episode. I decided to have myself on the guest chair. Each year on my birthday I reflect on what I know for sure by listing down things I know for sure and the list will be equivalent to my age. So since yesterday, the 27 April, was my 27th birthday today is a birthday special and I am dishing 27 things I know for sure. I do encourage you to join in and share your list.

    Please note that some of the things in this episode may not necessarily be anyone's truth, but are derived purely from what I have come to know based on the life I have lived to this point. I am hoping that you will take out something from it. Do enjoy!
