Growth mindset and integrity

Being the 1% today, it hasn’t been easy for Scott or ‘Better Brands’ to get to where they are; as a group they have encountered several obstacles and times when it seemed that they would not make it. However, Scott, a positive serial entrepreneur, stayed on course with the aspirations and, indeed, the vision of the company. I have also been fortunate to have such a talented relationship with my team that has conspired with me to embrace my vision, although God has always been my greatest support, my confidence and optimism in him, as well as his generosity has taken me much further. where i started

Adaptations are key

Gold trading, acquisitions, in other words buying and selling gold is Scott’s main business. It is the largest source of income for the ‘Better Brands’ group. He said, “I wouldn’t say I chose this path; rather he adopted me, or perhaps, it was God’s destiny for me. After being unable to continue his studies due to financial limitations, he found a way while he was still young to start in this industry. As a result, he ended up working for a gentleman in the same occupation as him, and he was grateful enough to have been nurtured by him and become the person he is today. “Better Brands has progressed into mining, construction, transportation and logistics, with plans to expand into hospitality in the near future,” he said.

Religious Connections, Gratitude, and Overcoming Challenges

There was a time when Mr. Pedzai Sakupwanya experienced a financial hurdle because he did not have enough operating capital to keep the business going. He “overcame this by expanding into other business ventures and getting help from people” who believed in him, for whom he will also be eternally indebted. “My trust in the Almighty ultimately got me through tough times as it kept my morale high; without faith I would not be where I am today”, he affirms serenely.
