SA’s first black-owned winery wins Small Business Entrepreneur of the Year

By Philippa Larkin Time of article publishedSep 9, 2019

Share this article:

Stevens is petite-sized. But this wine-making barrel-wielding dynamo does not let obstacles stop her.

This past week she walked away with Small Business Entrepreneur of the Year.

The single mother of two says is the owner of the first black-owned winery in South Africa. 
The winery, Carmen Stevens Wines, processed 150 tons per last year with a turnover of R8.1 million.  

She says the art of wine making includes selecting the right fruit and putting the right combinations together.

“You know every winemaker puts their personal touch on their wine.  My  wines are very big -big tannins, big colours – but elegant. When you put it into your mouth you know there is concentration and depth. Although it is that big, it is so palatable.”

(PDF) Effect of Entrepreneur and Firm Characteristics on the Business Success of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Bangladesh

resources for acquiring information about the market and changing the course of the enterprise are more limited.

The response to environmental changes is different in SMEs than in large companies (e.g. Chen & Hambrick

1995). Large firms may even exit from one of its business areas, but this is not usually possible in a

single-business firm. The options for responding are limited by the firms’ resources and strategic choices as well

as by the opportunities offered by the industry and location. Those ways may also differ between the

development stages of the firm. The role and contribution of SMEs differ from industries to industries and from

countries to countries. Similar to other businesses, SMEs also

What is an Entrepreneur And How Do You Become One Today?

My dad’s an entrepreneur.

In 1990, he opened his own auto shop.

He took a risk, went through the motions of uncertainty and stress, worked a second job to support his family and his business, grew his customer base, hired other mechanics, sold services (auto repair) as well as products (auto parts), and was ultimately accountable for his own success.

Ask him what he does for a living, however, and he won’t tell you he’s an entrepreneur. He’ll say he fixes cars.

Ask him about being his own boss and he’ll say, “When you have your own business, you’re not the boss. You’re an employee.”

But in my eyes he is most definitely an entrepreneur, at least according to the definition you get from a quick Google search:

An entrepreneur is a person who organizes and operates a business or businesses, taking on greater than normal financial risks

Seperti yang kita tahu, belakangan gampang sekali orang melabeli dirinya dengan sebutan entrepreneur saat hadir sebagai peserta di seminar-seminar, bincang bisnis dan sebagainya. Kalau di tanya, “Kerja apa?” jawabnya singkat, “Entrepreneur”. Terus, apakah salah kalau melabeli diri dengan sebutan itu? Tentu tidak

You might never join the ranks of the multi-zillionaires, but these characteristics of an entrepreneur can take you far in the workplace.

9 traits of successful entrepreneurs you should develop

Mimic these qualities of an entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurial spirit—it’s a phrase you might see in some job ads. Granted, your track record might not look like Mark Zuckerberg’s, Lori Greiner’s, or Richard Branson’s, but that doesn’t mean you can’t emulate successful entrepreneurs at work.
