With no start up capital at hand…they took the leap of faith and started up the business with 10 pairs of ladies' slippers. Yes that’s how they started. They sold the 10 pairs of ladies' slippers and from there they expanded to ladies' shoes and then expanded further to Genesis Style Clothes which are locally manufactured in South Africa. They are proud to be in business with their supplier for their ladies clothes, as the owners are also born again believers and they have always supplied them with an extremely good quality of clothes.
Their business is not where they want it to be yet but Nicole can surely say God has been Faithful. Last year during the hard lock down level 4 their business qualified to buy a car which they were able to buy, as transportation was quite a challenge. She can remember how her husband use to do their deliveries on foot regardless of the weather. There were times especially during winter that he would walk an entire day delivering items to their customers.
They are truly blessed to be where they are currently especially seeing that they don’t have formal training in Business yet.
They are thankful to God who has carried their business this far and trust He will help them carry it further.
The main reason for starting their Business was to aid them financially in the Ministry. And it would not have been possible without God’s help and their loyal customers who have become much more that just customers. They believe in what they do and therefore continue to support them and they are thankful to each and every one of them.

Returning to Port Elizabeth 8 years ago, Annelize was in awe of just how many entrepreneurs there were who were making the most beautiful handmade crafts and more importantly a living from their handmade items. The challenge lay in finding the right market that could dedicate itself to hand crafts from the Eastern Cape only. Annelize has also gone to great lengths to keep herself out of the ‘spotlight’ as she wants attendees to see the market as a ‘team of creatives’ rather than have them focus on the organiser.
And as the saying goes ‘be the change you want to see’, she took up the challenge to create the right environment that was dedicated to hand craft minus imports. “It can’t be done”, she was told, there just aren’t enough “crafty” people to dedicate a market to this. Well that is where so many were wrong. Locally Yours currently has a list of 237 entrepreneurs who fall within this category of which 95% do this as their primary source of income. And this list grows weekly with the current economic climate.
It is of vital importance to Annelize that each vendor is given the opportunity to own their category and for that reason you will not see any duplicates at their market or shop. The duplicates referred to here are over traded categories like jewellery and clothing. They also encourage their vendors to ‘evolve’ so that when they return to future events they broaden their product horizons to include new variants, styles or designs.

Brent Morris (50) was born and raised in Port Elizabeth. He grew up in Central and Westering where he went to school at Greenwood and Westering primary and Westering High school.
He left Westering high in 1998 to complete an apprenticeship at Matthew’s Engineering as a toolmaker. He qualified as a tool, jig and dye maker in Olifantsfontein in 1994.
Brent worked at various engineering companies as a tool, jig and dye maker and in 1999 he started at Scheaffler Automotive as a Toolmaker until September 2018.
While working at Scheaffler Automotive he bought a 1.3 Ton truck and started doing deliveries after work and over weekend. The idea was to buy the truck to help his eldest son to earn some money as he was working a lot of short time at that stage. However soon after that, his son changed to another job which resulted in Brent doing the deliveries himself.
After leaving Scheaffler in 2018, he devoted all his time to his transport company, which he then named BM Logistic services. As his business grew, his fleet also increased.
BM logistics is located in Port Elizabeth but provides services in various provinces.
The fleet consists of a 1.3 Ton Truck, 5 Ton Truck and a 3 Ton trailer (4 meter long).
The services provided includes:
• Local and out of town deliveries and collections
• Collection and delivery of all your galvansing goods
• Furniture removal
• Garbage clearance
• Garden refuse (no building rubble)
• Garage clearance
Local companies for which he provide services are Factory Direct Beds, Interwil Wood Products, Cement Force, Sheet-Rite, Everwood, Gary Grobler Designs, Polyfibre and Rhino Plastics. He also does house moves locally and to other provinces.
The workforce exists of Brent himself and two casual workers whom he normally uses when they have to load and offload goods for house moves. The casuals assist as needed seeing that loading and offloading is not always required, in most cases forklifts are used.
In addition to doing deliveries, Brent also provides a handy man service which includes, plumbing, electrical, painting, tiling, water tank installations, etc.
The business grew by word of mouth as Brent believes in excellent customer service and always strives to go the extra mile for his customers. He is always prepared to work hard and long hours to ensure that his customers are happy with the service.
His motto is that if he does not do the work, someone else will and by doing it to the best of his ability, he ensures that his customers are satisfied and that they will possibly tell the next person they know who may need his service.
His end goal is that he will have a big fleet of vehicles and that BM Logistics Services will become a household name in all the provinces across South Africa.

Joel has been in the Industry for many years and has gained lots of experience through the years. A few years back he was offered to sub contract for a major concern. He basically had to lose all his customers to keep this contract. That contract came to an abrupt end and covid did not serve him well. Being anxious and worried about the future is not a feeling he wants to relive.
It’s at this point that Joel remembered who he was and what he needed to be doing and as daunting as that was, constant working on your business and effort surely pays off in the end.
Joel had to learn many new skills when setting up his business from scratch, as he says, "things are different now and we need to learn to adapt".
