Stats SA confirms that the employment rate in South Africa decreased to 42.40 percent in the third quarter of 2019 from 42.44 percent in the second quarter of 2019. The employment rate in South Africa averaged 43.17 percent from 2000 until 2019, reaching an all-time high of 46.17 percent in the fourth quarter of 2008 and a record low of 41 percent in the first quarter of 2004.
We living in desperate times where the blame game shifts from victim to solution-based economic transformation if we dare to offer sustainable job creation solutions. As an entrepreneur living in a country where hopelessness is fast becoming a disease that spirals mental illness, suicides and escalates crime and paralyzes a nation. The fear of not being able to offer a solution is the catalyst for finally piecing a thread that keeps me up at night.
The frustration of not being able to articulate a thought process is daunting when you know what you know can solve a problem. Thankfully inspired by someone who offered the offering message in church the answer popped up and appropriating two simple words #RadicalGenerosity puts much in perspective.
Ancient scholars will agree that generosity begets generosity. So if we are the people we have been waiting for what we know with surety right now right here in South Africa Job creation is begging for a nation of warriors to arise and offer sustainable solutions in the absence of meaningful leadership in both the private and public sectors.
We now know with clarity the revolution to create jobs through entrepreneurship is the opportunity to untapped income streams and convert to cash flow
We need resources to attempt opportunities
We live in a digital era where connecting to networks, ecosystems and new markets is possible with data, smart device and using digital to connect
We also know in a disruptive economy we can create business models that problem solves. Radical generosity is the answer. We all have something to pay forward.
Problem-solving through giving
Entrepreneurs need resources. How we pay forward with discernment becomes an opportunity to connect a resource with a need
Imagine if we each identified the resources we can give away connected to the exact need
Pooling data like Uber, Air BnB, and other sharing economies have shown the power of developing technology platforms that solve problems. In South Africa, we know the need and we have the power to champion change through radical generosity
Turfing our unwanted to someone who needs the resource creates new business models and developing new markets
The wheels of generosity spiral a cycle which has its own momentum and spreads over a period of time as each person is impacted
Entrepreneur Connect 100 is a movement that can create new business models where infectious giving becomes a radical transformation to create sustainable transforming economic solutions. It remains the building block to develop new ideas.
There is little favorable to be said about poverty, but it was often an incubator of true friendship. Many people will appear to befriend you when you are wealthy, but precious few will do the same when you are poor. If wealth is a magnet, poverty is a kind of repellent. Yet Poverty brings out the true generosity of others #NelsonMandela
