Mr Ramulongo Tshililo Daun
My name Ramulongo Tshililo Daun and I am currently running my business called Tshililo Daun Systems & Constriction (Pty) Ltd. I completed my Engineering course in Electrical Infrastructure and Construction at Westcol TVET College. I remember doing house plans for my teacher and little did I know that it was the beginning of my entrepreneurship journey. I then furthered my studies at the University of Johannesburg where I majored in Entrepreneurship. My passion has always been in architecture and engineering and I then decided to start my own business in that area.
I grew up in a family that is business oriented where I learnt the basic principles of running a business such as selling and management, which formed the base of my entrepreneurship journey. After a few months of operating, my first project took off in Mogale city under the ABSA Development programme for six months and this experience taught me a lot of principles which are still evident in my work ethic today. This is where I met the Second Chance Foundation where I learnt how to develop my business into an asset of value and received all the necessary support I need to grow my business.
In my experience in running my business, I have learnt that there are no shortcuts to entrepreneurial success and fulfilment. What is important is to learn how to recognise and take advantage of opportunities.
