Owner-operator of 3@1 Cosmo, Carina Raats, on the importance of being creative and resourceful in this economy
Franchisee Carina Raats explains: “I have always known I would like to be a business owner, partially due to the fact that I would like to be of service to others, that I would like to offer a service that adds value to the community and that I would also like to be financially independent.
“Owning a business is certainly not for everyone. One really needs to have grit and determination to succeed. The state of the economy adds to the pressure, but one has to be resourceful in order to overcome.
“This business has given me a platform to be creative. The journey can be very fulfilling on many levels.
“I’m so grateful every morning when I am able to open my 3@1 Business Centre store’s doors. I realise I’m privileged to work for myself.
“This business will certainly reward those that put in the effort. What you put in is what you get out at the end of the day. One most certainly is able to make a success of this business if one follows the guidelines set out by the 3@1 Business Centre team.”
