I’ve been unhappy for several years. I’m 33 and feel I haven’t reached the goals I set for myself as a young woman. Even though I know I can do much more, I’m unable to fulfil my potential. My life is vulnerable and boring, and I’m sick and tired of myself. It feels as if I’m not progressing because I don’t have enough money to maintain myself. My plan was that by now I would have my own house. What can I do?

You are not the only one who feels this way. With the high unemployment rate in this country, there are many like you. I say this because everything these days is about money. There is no need to question yourself and your abilities.
Find something that you can do to accumulate funds – many people your age have their own businesses these days – and make sure that it is something you have passion for. If you engage in something you don’t enjoy, you will be back to square one: bored and vulnerable. Approach institutions such as Umsobomvu, Department of Trade and Industry and Business Partners for advice on business-related issues. I wish you all the best.
