WHY DID YOU STARTED YOUR OWN BUSINESS

To share knowledge with others, and facilitate empowering partnerships with people, communities and businesses creating their own destiny from a social and commercial perspective.

CHALLENGES FACED

  • Business support mechanisms
  • Brand identity
  • Capability

HOW DID YOU OVERCOME THE CHALLENGES

When establishing Tagai Management Consultants I approached the process with the mindset of "what could I do to establish my company with no money?" With that approach in mind I applied by own form of business strategy which has involved a strong belief in my business, organic business growth, learning, remaining flexible, and experimenting with various business processes while maintaining respect to my traditional values.

SIZE/STAGE OF YOUR BUSINESS AND FUTURE PLANS

Tagai Management Consultants is entering our 3rd year of business, and I am focused on business sustainability, growth, exploring new markets, and respecting the people, community and businesses I have the pleasure to interact with in our business journey.
