KRYSTAL KLEAR VISIONS for women, by women

We speak to the Vanessa Masilo, a visionary, dreamer, and ambitious founder and CEO of KRYSTAL KLEAR VISIONS. She describes herself a focused individual who knew what she wanted from an early age and decided that one day she would build an empire and make a difference in society.

Vanessa Masilo, a young black female entrepreneur, youth activist, philanthropist and
motivational speaker born and bred in Parys, Free State moved to Vanderbijlpark at the age of 17 where she studied Chartered Accountancy and later changed to Management Accounting at the North west University Vaal Triangle Campus. She proceeded to work in an upscale environment, assuring client delight on an asset management project which launched her as a professional in private sector and landed her a job at one of the biggest ICT Companies in Africa,EOH.  A year after joining EOH Vanessa felt she had gained all the necessary experience she needed as she had worked on various projects including Revenue Management, Business Planning and Consolidating, Credit Control and had also served on the CAB (Change AdvisoryBoard) of one of the major clients of EOH at the time.
Passionate about business and youth development, the move from corporate was a natural fit. She was courageous enough to resign and leave her comfort zone in private sector to pursue business. Her company which was registered in 2013 while she was a student then became fully operational in 2015 after she resigned. She focused on growing the business and building solidrelationships while also pursing her passion in the Philanthropy space. She established KVF (KLEAR VISIONS FOUNDATION) which is an NPC primarily focusing on women and children empowerment, skills development, moral regeneration, education and training to name a few.
Chairing and running this foundation Vanessa has made tremendous progress and has managed to change lives and also position herself as a young woman the youth can relate to, admire, look up to and run to for mentorship and guidance.

Entering into the BRICS space was a bold move and she has never looked back. She was selected as one of the young, progressive entrepreneurs in the Free State and was sent to India to go represent South Africa at the BRICS YOUTH SUMMIT 2016, Vanessa is now part of the BRICS YOUTH NETWORK/PROGRAM and advocates for youth empowerment and inclusion within the BRICS Nations, focusing mainly on Entrepreneurship and Skills Development, Youth Volunteerism, Social Inclusion, Youth in Governance and Intra BRICS exchange programs and trade.
She serves on a number boards as an executive director namely: SAYEF (South African Youth Entrepreneurship Fund), YBT (Youth Business Transformation) and PELA (Peo Entrepreneurial Leadership Academy).
Vanessa is now spearheading the Sanitary Towels Project in the country and is one of the first black female manufacturers in the country. The project aims to assist disadvantaged school girls and ensure that school absenteeism due to lack of sanitary towels is a thing of the past.

klear visions
Despite having been blessed with great success at a tender age Vanessa Masilo believes that her career as an entrepreneur and social and political activist has just began. She hopes to one day grow her businesses in to a multibillion dollar empire with a global footprint. Whilst engaging in activism at both a continental and global level. She believes just as Napoleon Hill aptly put it that “there are no limitations to the mind except those it acknowledges”.

Her journey is to empower and emancipate young black women in South Africa and the African continent at large. Through entrepreneurship I will continue empowering other women and doing it at a very practical level like absorbing them into employment, upskilling and developing them, mentoring, exposing them to opportunities. I plan on doing roadshows, extensive marketing, partnering with other NPCs, NPOs, and NGOs who are also distributing Sanitary Towels in our schools and communities. I also plan on working with government, they have the capacity and a partnership with them would help us make a sustainable, impactful change.

5 Ways to Own Your Brilliance beyond a 9-to-5

Business advice from someone who has been there and done that! Tamiko Cuellar shares five ways to own your brilliance outside of the conventional workplace.

Head shot 39

Due to the growing global economy and the digital age, the way we think about using our talents has begun to shift our career paths from the conventional 9-to-5 jobs. The most brilliant thought leaders and creatives today are now forging their own careers on their own terms.

LOOK AT THE WORLD FROM THE LENS OF A PROBLEM SOLVER.

Innovation is birthed from necessity. The world has no shortage of problems, only talent to solve them.  Social media platforms were developed in part to remove the barrier of barriers which prevented people from connecting. What problem will you solve in this world?

ASSESS YOUR NATURAL GIFTS, SKILLS AND ABILITIES.

Whatever you can do well with the least amount of effort is a clue to uncover your brilliance. Your brilliance does not have to be limited to the conventional corporate workplace.  If you are entrepreneurial, then there are several ways that you could turn your ideas into income.

CONNECT WITH IDEAS AND OPPORTUNITIES THAT FUEL YOUR GROWTH.

Your brilliance in this world will shine brighter as you become more adept in your skill set. Learning is ongoing and you should always be a student. In addition to taking courses, attend webinars, go to conferences, read lots of books, or subscribe to your favorite blog or YouTube channel. These are ways to ensure that you will continue to develop the most cutting-edge and marketable skill sets in today’s competitive global marketplace.

SAY GOODBYE TO YOUR COMFORT ZONE.

The greatest things in life are achieved outside of the comfort zone. While the comfort zone might offer security and a steady paycheck from a 9-to-5 job, it might not give birth to your brilliance and allow you to live your fullest potential. You will shine the brightest in this world when you take risks and when you learn to use your failures and uncertainty to your advantage.

IF YOU ARE ENTREPRENEURIAL, SURROUND YOURSELF WITH LIKE-MINDED INDIVIDUALS.

You will find that your creativity is best used when there are no limitations. For many employees, the workplace can be stifling to their ingenuity, imagination, individuality, and ideas. This is often how entrepreneurs are born.  Entrepreneurs are naturally creative innovators. They often seek better ways to do things to achieve results and solve problems.

When you own your brilliance, you use it on your terms. You won’t allow it to be squelched or hampered by the limitations of society.  Taking this ownership of your gifts, talents, skill sets, and abilities means that you will determine how and where you use your brilliance for the greater good of this world – and without the income limitations of a conventional job.

THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR WHAT YOU HAVE TO OFFER!

Eating my heart out thanks to ULC!

I figuratively ate my heart out at the Urban Low Carb pop-up this past Saturday. My heart was at its happiest when tasting those delectable eats, and enjoying them GUILT-FREE!deck

See, I am on this so-called healthy eating buzz (well trying to be) but my biggest weakness is always the Confectionery section of a store.

The excitement I had when receiving the invite to come see (and taste)  these Wheat-free, gluten-free, sugar-free desserts, tarts and breads was insuperable.cheeskc

I honestly expected food that tastes like “nothing”, but to my surprise and DELIGHT, the treats were anything but tasteless! My absolute favourite was the Cheesecake and brownie combination, abundantly garnished with pecan nuts! Yum!

There was sooo much to choose from, and all beautifully presented. I also had (some of) the Vanilla baked cheesecake topped with a spicy berry coulis and dark chocolate ganache…quite spicy but tamed nicely with the creamy cheesecake underneath.

ULC

On display, for consumption, were different quiches:  two, chicken/sundried tomato/feta and kale/peppers/mushroom. Made with lovely cream and handfuls of cheddar cheese.  
Are you drooling yet?
It doesn’t stop there! Lusanda (my bff/plus one/photographer) was devouring the open sandwiches which are  made with Cocoloaf – low carb bread for which we grind a mixture of seeds and coconut flour. Have you ever??? It also had hints of cinnamon and the dough, a touch of himalayan pink salt.

guests ULC

The founders of this food movement are sisters, Naadia vd Bergh Olkers and Shireen vd Bergh, wishing to promote healthier options for a better life! The ladies were so excited and passionate about their brand and more than happy to share their ingredients. It’s important to know what one is eating, and even better if you have them make your meals for you!
