Business of People

The conversations are casual and unscripted. We talk about life, business and hope to inspire you with insights, lessons learnt and fast track hacks from these entrepreneurs that you can implement in your own business.
The journey of starting and running your own business is one of the most rewarding things you can do. It’s not always glamorous and requires dogged determination to stay the course. Now more than ever we need to share, collaborate and learn from one another to not only survive in this economic climate, but thrive!

Huntz & Duncs

7 EPISODES |  Series, ±1 hour episode total time 7 hr 03 min
When the world was tossed into a pandemic, Hunter and Duncan decided it was their civil-duty to meet up online and discuss weird things to pass the time. From those conversations, a podcast was born. The show deals with all things that the 2 find interesting, from conspiracies to real people, no topic is too broad or too boring. Both Hunter and Duncan come from extremely different backgrounds and have some fairly different views on different topics which makes it all the more fun!

Het jy al ooit jouself afgevra: Wat gaan aan?
Dalk het jy dit net in jou kop geverbaliseer. Of saggies vir jouself in die stort gefluister. Of dalk hardop van ’n baie hoë krans geskree? Of dit net bloot aan jou twee katte gestel terwyl hulle diep in jou oë kyk.

Die wêreld is mal en ek love dit. Meestal...
Everything is a choice, en mense maak besluite om betekenis en waarde aan hulle lewe te heg. Partykeer maak dit sin. Partykeer nie. Wie gee om? Right?
Join my, Wilhelm van der Walt, waar ek met die einstes praat wat probeer sin gee aan die lewe.

DanceFloor is about developing a dialogue with artists, to know what makes them do what they do and how they came about it. To bring awareness to art, dance and entrepreneurship. Creative expression is very necessary for the development and inclusion of artists within a society where dance and art are not necessarily recognised, understood or appreciated. DanceFloor aims to start a discussion about the importance and value of freedom of expression and how necessary it is for a society to thrive.

I’m a 34-year-old spontaneous, lively and proud gay man from the countryside Concordia Namaqualand with big dreams. My passion for the media stems from childhood where I could have always been seen with my mother’s wooden spoon in my eyes at that time a 'mike' in hand presenting my own ‘show’. I’m currently a radio personality at Namaqualand's largest radio station Radio NFM 98.1, trying to create as much awareness as possible around LGBTQI + issues. I live in a small town and want to be an inspiration to other men and women who want to be their authentic selves.
