    mostly historically disadvantaged The time has come for us to ask the all important question has BBBEE achieved its purpose In my view it has not While the principle is sound the execution has been troublesome All that it effectively has done is enrich a few elite who use their connections as a base for doing transactions with the rich get richer and the poor stay poor In this blog post I would like to focus on the ownership element of BBBEE Businesses should want Read more 05 Jan 2015 Message In CABAN Blog Written by Dave Romero For a surprisingly small group of our country 2014 will be remembered as a year in which strikes ravaged our economy and stock exchange where state owned enterprises teetered on the brink of collapse with rolling black outs almost becoming the norm and two high level court cases that seem to have been bungled by the SA justice system There were also positives such as the creation of the South African Small and Medium Enterprises Federation and the Ministry of Small Business Development Miss South Africa won the Miss World title we opened the biggest solar plant on the continent and an unemployed South African came 36th in the London Marathon thank you to the Daily Maverick for some of these highlights But for the majority of the people in our land 2014 will be remembered the same as the years before a day to day struggle for survival Read more 03 Dec Convention for the Economic Transformation of South Africa COETSA In CABAN Blog Written by Dave Romero We had Codesa in 1992 which transformed the political landscape of our country and gave us independence of a suppressive government Twenty years into our new democracy the gap between the poor and the rich has widened The reasons for this are various and it is not our intention to engage in a political debate as to the root cause of this continued disparity As colleagues that are involved in the SME space we too believe that we need a Convention for the Economic Transformation of South Africa COETSA The status quo cannot continue any longer We will publish a series of blogs that make suggestions on how to address the worsening situation of our beloved country The purpose is to increase dialogue and hopefully make a difference We fully support the work of organisations such as South African Small and Medium Enterprises Federation and Archbishop of Cape Town Thabo Read

unemployment and the associated social ills have been a major blight in the otherwise remarkable story that is South Africa post apartheid While the initial rainbow nation image has taken a bit of a beating in recent years the fact remains that few countries have been able to take the step from an apartheid system to a democratic system as successfully as South Africa While the politicians played a vital role it was the people of South Africa who were and continue to be the true reason for the successful integration of all the races creeds and cultures The new apartheid is an economic apartheid Poverty and unemployment separate the people of South Africa as strongly if not more as the laws put in place by the apartheid government did So I pose the following question Should we not turn back to the people to solve Read more 11 Jun A solution to South Africa s mining strike In CABAN Blog Written by Dave Romero Members of the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union Amcu have been on strike at Anglo American Platinum Impala Platinum and Lonmin in the North West platinum belt since January 23 demanding a basic monthly salary of R12 500 It is estimated that to date mine workers have lost R9 8 billion in salaries while the companies have lost around R22 billion The human distress that surrounds this issue eclipses the numbers and a speedy and sustainable resolution to the impasse is vital not only to stem the sliding Rand but also to put an end to the violence and suffering of the miners and the communities that reply so heavily on the mining sector I pose the following idea as a potential solution using Anglo American Platinum as an example The market capitalisation of Anglo American Platinum is around R129 billion according to Bloomberg It has a total work force Read more 18 May Wear your scars of life as medals In CABAN Blog Written by Dave Romero Following from some of our blogs on what it feels like to go through the entrepreneurial journey 22 April and 29 April I want to share what I personally go through This is shared by most entrepreneurs You do all the motivational stuff such as being grateful for what you have be in positive frame of mind carry on regardless of adversity and realise that there is a light at the end of the tunnel But sometimes it just gets too much Sometimes you wake up and think to yourself I have to make things happen but I just feel drained emotionally and physically You don t want to show it because you re afraid to show any signs of weakness At that point you don t want people to give you a pep talk a don t worry everything will be fine rap You want to be left alone you just want to Read more Tagged under Dave Romero Caban Capital PLC 12 May What s the difference between Forecasts and Budgets In CABAN Blog Written by Dave Romero Budgets Budgeting should not be confused to forecasting Forecasting is normally done for investors and information is disclosed differently to a company s budget Each year an entrepreneur should produce budgets When preparing year on year budgets the following should be taken into consideration How much do think your sales will increase by and why Can you improve your margins and how will you achieve this Have you made enough provision for increase in costs Have you covered all incidentals Record all your assumptions When you compare the management accounts to your budgets it will be useful to revisit your assumptions and adjust accordingly After a few years your budgets will become accurate due to the fine tuning of your assumptions Forecasts If you are a start up preparing your five year forecasts can be a very difficult task Entrepreneurs are positive individuals and always set their forecasts high When preparing forecasts Read more Tagged under Dave Romero Entrepreneur 02 May Management Accounts yawn In CABAN Blog Written by Dave Romero What a boring subject I would rather be talking about entrepreneurship but this is important stuff Should companies even start ups have monthly management accounts Entrepreneurs have a feeling of how a business is doing A lot of business people will gauge the success of their business on how much money is in the bank While both methods might seem adequate how do you really know what the actual situation of your company is What are your trends Are you growing or slowing down Management accounts are a necessity period Any entrepreneur worth their salt will make sure that they have monthly figures prepared by competent people You need to know exactly how your business is doing financially and that can only be determined through management accounts Although spouses can assist it s better to get the professionals involved It does not have to be an expensive exercise The best option is Read more Tagged under Management Accounts Dave Romero tbl capital 29 Apr So you want to be an entrepreneur In CABAN Blog Written by Dave Romero Q and A with our Group CEO Dave Romero What is it like to be an entrepreneur and what insight to being one do you have for new entrepreneurs I often get asked what it s like being an entrepreneur It s interesting the perception people have of starting a business Some romanticise that they want to be the next Richard Branson or start a company like Apple What many fail to see is the journey people take to reach the point where you can say you have reached success I don t think I have reached that point in my life yet but I know that I will be at that point soon But getting to that point you have to endure the following Personally Accept that like scientists you will have to try and try again until you get the winning formula while accepting that business goes in cycles it has ups Read more Tagged under Entrepreneur cape town Dave Romero 22 Apr Entrepreneurship A very lonely road In CABAN Blog Written by Dave Romero When walking down the road of establishing a business you will often find yourself asking who can truly help you You can talk to your life partner and family accountant and lawyer It is always important to obtain professional advice in business matters But where do you turn when you are feeling a bit lost or even despondent When you get conflicting advice which happens more often than one would think which advice do you follow I am often amazed to hear entrepreneurs seeking advice from friends that never have been in business It is surprising how keen and willing everyone is so willing to give business advice We at Caban believe that only entrepreneurs can effectively assist other entrepreneurs Only those that have walked down the entrepreneurship road can truly understand the pitfalls I remember before I had kids I started a bit later than most at the age of 35 Read more Tagged under Dave Romero Caban Entrepreneur cape town 14 Apr A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE ON BUSINESS PLANS In CABAN Blog Written by Dave Romero There is a lot of information available on this subject and we agree with the often cited reasons for why a business plan is needed We would however like to add our own perspective on the importance of these documents Raising of Capital or Finance One key reason for a business plan is to attract investors or when applying for finance from a financial institution Investors rely on business plans when making a decision to invest Business plans should contain information that is relevant and should refrain from giving holistic information of the industry they are in Makes You Think About Your BusinessWhen drafting a business plan it requires you to put some strategic thinking into your company Many businesses exist without specific direction The process of compiling a business plan makes you think of key areas such sales and marketing It sets out key objectives for short medium and long Read more Tagged under Business Plans Caban Dave Romero cape town 08 Apr What makes a business successful In CABAN Blog Written by Dave Romero I often read suggestions on how to make a success of a business It is very encouraging to see sound advice given to entrepreneurs but very few touch on the human element of a business There is a lot of information on what attributes an entrepreneur should have but what about business relationships Business is much more than a vision and mission statement A business plan is crucial to the survival of a business but what about the human element and I don t just mean human resources The collective energy of a business will determine whether it will be successful or not This energy is derived from all the individuals involved in the business In my previous blog I mentioned that you have to chose your business relationships carefully and certain suggestions were made to assist in this process You have to be able to like your active business partners Read more Tagged under Dave Romero Caban Investments Ltd Entrepreneur Business Strategy cape town 02 Apr CHOOSING A BUSINESS PARTNER In CABAN Blog Written by Dave Romero When choosing mentors business partners or equity partners one has to choose carefully Initially while you re going through the honeymoon period all is well These relationships are truly tested when things don t go according to plan It s human nature to start doubting when things go wrong It s very seldom that you find total business commitment More often than not these relationships are conditional So what should one look for when entering into business relationship The following points are great guidelines and are generally easy to do See how the person treats their friends and family What is the relationship with their kids and life partners like Get references Talk to people that have interacted with them on a business and personal level Observe how they perform under pressure How do they conduct themselves when the heat is on See how they treat people from whom they have nothing to gain Read more Tagged under Caban CABANITES BLOG ENTREPRENEURS Entrepreneur cape town SOUTH AFRICA Dave
