In celebration of "Own Business Day" which is observed every year on the second Tuesday of October, Joanne Joseph spoke to actor and model Masego "Maps" Maponyane on his entrepreneurial journey.
Maponyane recently opened up a restaurant called Buns Out in Linden, Johannesburg.
Here is some of what he had to say about just how much is required if you are planning to run your own business.
If you don't have the appetite for risk, even the appetite for failure, then it is very hard to survive as an entrepreneur. You need to know that you are taking something that is going to require so much from you.— Maps Maponyane, Actor, model and entrepreneur
You just have to be able to work relentlessly to be able to achieve what you want.— Maps Maponyane, Actor, model and entrepreneur
There are all these elements that need to come with taking that risk, that require a lot of time from yourself that will in the end determine whether your business makes it or not.— Maps Maponyane, Actor, model and entrepreneur
