In this excerpt of an in-depth interview with Moneyweb, Raizcorp CEO Allon Raiz shares his views on perseverance in entrepreneurship. He says particularly young people look for the ‘Nirvana’, a business that’s aligned to who they are and which is going to be easy. When they find that it’s hard they give up and start again, sometimes resulting in not having built anything of substance down the line.
In partnership with FNB, Moneyweb will be featuring a bespoke leadership video series, with top business people. The interview draws on the person’s life, failures and the lessons they have learnt on their journey to the successful leadership positions they hold today.
