Xoli's Road To Success:

Name: Xoli Nzama

Occupation: Visual Merchandiser

Goals: "To fully live and go through my life journey without missing anything. I think us, human beings just go through life without fully living in the present moment. That's important for me. Once I master that I know everything else will fall into place."

What is success? "I do not believe success is this final destination that we will one day get to. You can be successful at the small things you set out to do daily. You can be successful at being a good mother, a good friend, a good cook, a good writer etc. Every day you can try and be successful at those particular things. That way we cultivate successful living."

What success have you achieved? "I have successfully grown in my industry, I have worked on that for the past 4 years. When I started working in retail I had no idea what the fashion retail industry was about. Now I have reahced a point where I can train other people coming into my field. I've travelled and seen how things are done internationally. I continue to learn and try and be successful in fashion as a whole every single day."

What success do you want to achieve? "Successful living in all the different aspects of my life; Successful fashion, travel and lifestyle blogger, Successful brand, Successful professional in the fashion industry, Successful personal shopper and so on..."

All the best on your road to success Xoli...

Nadia's Road To Success:

Name: Nadia Singh-Snyders

Occupation: "Besides being a Mom, Wife and Part-time Accounts Student, I'm currently a Trainee in the field I am studying and Blogger in between at Shiny Sequins Blog."

Goals: "To be successful and most importantly Happy at whatever I do. To complete my degree, to travel and long term wise to become an Entrepreneur someday."

What is success? "To me it's really about being happy in whatever you do and not about the amount of money you make. Success also doesn't come easy in life, you need to work hard, persevere and have lots of patience, success doesn't just happen over night for everyone, it might take longer for some. Listen to that little voice inside your head that keeps saying "Go on, Don't give up". No matter how long something takes, Never Give Up on your dreams."

What success have you achieved? "Personally I'm still growing each day, success is an ongoing thing. Years ago when I completed my financial Management Diploma I realized it wasn't enough and I needed to study further to make a success, I realize now success is ongoing, you'll always want more and always strive for more, so even if I complete my degree I'll probably feel I need to study further. In my personal life I feel I'm very successful (laughing), being married at a young age in this life is very difficult but we managed to overcome all obstacles over the years and after ten years I can still say I am happily married. 
In the blogging world I'm fairly new, not a year yet, while following other bloggers for a while I always wanted my own, it took a lot of guts but I started my own blog from scratch, struggling for days, setting up different social media accounts and to see it grow over months and being featured on other blogs and pages on Instagram makes me happy and enjoy it even more, it was not what I expected when I started, it's a hobby I really enjoy and began blogging for the fun of it."

What success do you want to achieve? "Like I've mentioned previously I would like to complete my degree, be a success in the Accounting/Finance sector, travel and see the beautiful world out there, become an entrepreneur someday and provide employment.
I would love to see my blog grow from hobby into a business, work with great brands and collaborations, meet other bloggers, maybe become a full-time paid Blogger (who wouldn't want that hey?) and continue to inspire with my modest wear."

All the best on your road to success Nadia...

Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.

Sinako's Road To Success:

Name: Sinako Bomela

Occupation: "I am currently employed as a Lab Assistant at the University of Free State where I am a full time Student completing my Masters in Human Rights Law. I am a Stylist and Style Blogger, a Fashion Contributor on and a Writer for CentralVibe on"

Goals: "My goal in life is to grow in all areas of my life, as a person to my relationships, finances and my career. I believe that having set no limits to exactly how far I want to go, I can achieve what is beyond possible."

What is success? "I believe success is directly proportional to satisfaction. When you are satisfied with what you have achieved for yourself to the extent that your dreams and reality become one."

What success have you achieved? "I have successfully completed my LLB degree in record time in the past year, which I am so proud about as I had been working and studying full time in order to ease the financial burden from my mother who is a single parent to my brother and I. I am also enrolled for my LLM degree, which only a few get selected for. There is also a balance between my work, relationship and finances which I consider success as it is a strive to succeed in one without having the others to suffer." 

What success do you want to achieve? "I am yet to influence the South African legal system and the application of law through my legal writings which I am yet to see published, building our country and see the realization of the goals set by our forefathers. Then one day when all is said and done I can proudly say I fulfilled the purpose of my life."

All the best on your road to success Sinako...
