Chartered accountant buys Notes of Nature natural supplements
Tshidi Mokgabudi recently bought the South African maker of 100% natural supplements, Notes of Nature. Mokgabudi, the third African woman in South Africa to qualify as a chartered accountant, believes her financial expertise, business knowledge and leadership qualities will help her write another success story.
According to Mokgabudi her love for natural well-being has made the transition from financial services and auditing businesses to natural health supplements an easy decision. “Even though I loved my busy successful financial services and auditing I knew that one day I would want to own a health and wellness business.”
Says Mokgabudi, “When I decided that I wanted to become a chartered accountant, I wrote down my vision and walked as one before I became one. I have done the same with my dream to be in the natural supplement business.”
“Before I acquired Notes of Nature, I spent two years in the transition process: Living healthily, going to health hydro spas, enjoying my regular walks and having fun. Do not be anxious about doing nothing during your transition period. Coming from a busy business life, I know that those feelings often make an appearance, but learn to practice relaxation!”
She also believes that you should know your strengths and weaknesses and never stop developing yourself. “I have researched permaculture gardening philosophy and its core principles of care for the earth and care for people. This has inspired me to start growing my own herbs.”
