I turned 40 a few years ago, and began to reflect on a number of issues – one of which was my career and how I could give back to society and the continent at large through my career and life-time professional experiences. One of the areas that I have given back commonly has been in the area of mentoring and coaching – mentoring and coaching female entrepreneurs in the SME/small and growing business sector.
