Episode 55: Thembi Bheka

Permission to Kick Ass

Thembi started her business with a mission to empower women. Her purpose was so important to her that it drove her through some of the roughest challenges entrepreneurship has to offer. Thembi’s journey taught her what it means to be a true leader. And she’s sharing her biggest lessons in this episode. This is one you don’t wanna miss. Can’t-Miss Moments From This Episode:“Danger, danger! Run away!” — Your feedback could be unintentionally sending your  team into a Fright-Flight-Freeze response. We breakdown how to change your approach to get results without the life-or-death pressure.  When her agency was dealing with a 26% refund rate and daily resignations, Thembi thought about throwing in the towel… but there was one thing that kept her going. (This is what you need to stay motivated when biz is tough and cash isn’t flowing.) Mini-rant coming at ya: I’m so tired of this shitty advice. You are NOT one magical hire away from all your problems being solved. Thembi didn’t take this advice and neither should you (here’s why).   Thembi tried the promote-to-motivate strategy and learned a valuable lesson on what people can and can’t be trained on. Listen to her story to get the most out of your promotions. Your business is like a garden: you can’t yell at the plants for not growing! Thembi’s garden analogy sets up a phenomenal strategy you can use to improve team dynamics. This one is jam-packed full of advice. Don’t miss out - listen now!Thembi’s Bio:Thembi Bheka is the founder of Virtual Staff on Demand, an organization that trains African women from abusive backgrounds to work as virtual assistants.

197: Know your zone of genius - with Thembi Bheka

Social Capital

About Thembi Bheka Thembi Bheka is the founder of She Breaks Thru, an agency that trains African women from disadvantaged backgrounds to work as technical virtual assistants. She believes in helping others reignite their passion, gain more clarity, and reconnect with their bigger purpose. She is on a mission to empower 1 million women by 2025.   What triggered you to start your business? “I had traveled in Zimbabwe and I read an article on the paper about a girl who has committed suicide because she was tired of trading her body just to put food on the table. And that story just triggered a lot of emotions for me. First of all, it triggered my own history of what I went through getting out of my marriage, and it also triggered what I saw other women go through in Zimbabwe and every other woman who I was talking to about how they were stuck in abusive relationships because of money. And I said, I'm going to change this, I have to find a way to change it.”   What is the number 1 thing entrepreneurs can do immediately to scale faster? “You really have to start working on your zone of genius and stop working on little things…and I'm not saying little as in they don't matter. No, but I mean the things that are not in your zone of excellence.”   How have the connections you have made helped you as you started your business? “I think networking is the foundation of building a business. That's my opinion. I think just when you really want to build a business, you just have to start networking right away. And I'll just go back to when I first started investing in real estate…”   Can you share with me your most successful or favorite networking story/experience that you’ve had? “I went to this event, my first ever online marketing event about three years ago, four years now, four years ago, and I had never been to that kind of event before. And I was lost. I was like, drowning in lost and I started talking to people in the lobby, who are sitting in Canada drinking beer…”   How do you stay in front of or best nurture your network community? “I basically communicate with them through my email. I have a weekly blog and I have a podcast as well, where I basically share and talk about things in which kind of stays in touch with those people who I connect with. And they can see those in my email list. But in regards to the closer relationships, I try to stay in touch with people at least once a month, kind of just have, I call it my social day.”   What advice do you have for the professional on growing their network? “Get off your butt. And by that, I mean just go to events, and it doesn't have to be events that are one thousand kilometers away from where you live. It could be local events. There are a lot of events in every local city.”   Digital networking or traditional networking? “For me, it’s traditional. I call myself ancient, even though I'm working in a digital space. I find traditional more effective because you are meeting people in person and one on one.”   If you could go back 20 years, what would you tell yourself to do more or less of regarding your career? “I would have taken more risks…and as much as I believe that I'm a risk-taker, but I always had those internal doubts within me that said, you know, ‘who do you think you are?’”   We’ve all heard of the 6 degrees of separation… Now, who would be the one person you’d love to connect with and do you think you could do it within the 6th degree? “I was going to say Oprah...”   What book are you reading right now? “I listen to a lot of podcasts, but my favorite one is by Ali Brown. It's called Ambition Radio…But in regards to the books, I'm just reading one called Rocket Fuel. I just finished it, actually, and started a new one called Profit Fest.”   Any final words of advice for our listeners? “Just keep in touch because there's nothing as hard, or I find frustrating, as somebody who emails me once every three months because they're selling something.” You can get in contact with Thembi at: Website: www.virtualstaffondemand.com LinkedIn: Click Here Twitter: Click Here

076 | Thembi Bheka: Empowering African Women Through Opportunity

The NDINI Podcast

When her marriage fell apart, and the economic and political situation in her native Zimbabwe started rapidly declining, Thembi Bheka was forced to leave her home country to move to Canada as a refugee.  Although it was heartbreaking, she had to leave her young children behind. She arrived in Canada with a whole lot of determination, and only $5 in her pocket – money which she’d been given by a fellow passenger on her flight.    Thembi worked odd jobs including as a car wash attendant and a caregiver, before being accepted into nursing school.  She graduated with flying colours, and got a job, which meant she could finally bring her children to live with her in Canada .    But she soon realised that trying to balance being a single mother with her newfound career was not going to work.  She also knew that nursing was not a profession she wanted to spend the rest of her life doing. Thembi stumbled across a seminar on real estate investing, which introduced her to the bestselling book ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad‘.  She credits that seminar and the book for literally changing her life.  She was inspired to buy her first rental property and hasn’t looked back since!  "People still need a place to stay. That's a need, it's not a want. People always need a place to stay. So you have to invest in something that is really needed by the people which you know that you can provide a solution. And that is why I think real estate is more beneficial compared to stocks." - Thembi Bheka In addition to being a real estate investor, Thembi has decided to share her knowledge by starting a company which she’s called ‘Real Estate Real Riches’.  Through her company, she offers training focused on educating and empowering others, especially women, about investing in real estate. "Sometimes, us women, we try to use the masculine energy to try and keep up with the men, but we don't have to. We could use our femininity." - Thembi Bheka   Apart from her real estate investing, mentoring and coaching, Thembi has started a Virtual Assistant agency with a team of well-trained and highly skilled women from Zimbabwe. This platform gives opportunity and empowerment to these women to work as virtual staff, helping entrepreneurs and providing various services online. “My legacy – I would like to have impacted women.  I would like to have changed people’s lives for the better.”  - Thembi Bheka
