Best Christmas Yet!!

Best Christmas Yet!!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

2014 was the most challenging year for many of us. But for some of us 2014 was a burning hell.

Being a new entrepreneur, I always hoped to continue with my job while building my business on my spare time. But instead I found myself without a salary, without accommodation and prematurely thrown into a full time entrepreneur journey. Yes someone had taken a decision for me and my family.

This was in July 2014. Waking to the reality of the situation I had to think fast. The concept Music with Friends was born. The main aim for this project was to generate revenue for my business. The concept just had to work. My business partner Chris was the only one injecting finance into the business. We did two projects of Music with Friends, but as it turned out these projects enhanced our marketing not our revenues.

My financial situation became worse. In November I battled depression and developed blood pressure which resulted in me being placed on medication by doctors. To make matters worse, friends disappeared quickly. It just became too much, I could not dream anymore I just had to survive. An
amazing community angel became the only person that
looked my direction and extended a hand. She found me an
accommodation, did her best, but she had to attend to her
family, as they were facing similar challenges as well.

December came, my situation was at a desperate point. And so I decided to ask God to give me Christmas for the first time, since Christmas times have always been the worst times for me, and lonliest time. It seemed like my plea fell on deaf ears.

The Christmas day came, I woke up feeling excited (strange). I brushed my teeth, I spit toothpaste foam in my mouth into a basin. Continued brushing my teeth, as I look down in the basin, the toothpaste foam had formed perfect shape of a heart!! That was the beginning of an amazing Christmas for me. I went to church, and after church my friend from Congo invited me to his place for Christmas.

It turned out to be the hottest day in South Africa, and the family I visited had the coolest swimming pool. The water was cold. They had prepared lunch, and it just became an amazing Christmas for me!!! It was my first Christmas!! Since my rural Christmas in 1997.

God does give us His best. I started 2015 with no sad stories because I have tasted God’s goodness, and I believe that UVIM will become a global brand.

Thank you for taking time to listen to my story! What is your Christmas story?
