This job would fit in exactly in the type of job I would like to do in the long term.

A typical working day would start by checking that every aspect of the business is up to date and in order; checking and answering e-mails, seeing that cash, orders, receiving and delivering of goods are in order. One must also be on top of needs and requirements of staff and co-workers. In the industry I have learnt that the only way to prevent problems is to have all your work up to date and in case a problem comes along, to deal with it right away. Customers have to be happy and satisfied at all times in order for them to come back to the store time after time. I really enjoy working with people (both employees and customers) and believe that true job satisfaction comes from giving your best at all times. The most challenging part of work is probably dealing with conflicting personalities in the best way and also to minimize theft and wastage, but all of that is part of being a good manager.

Pros: This job would be great because one could build the store up together with a good team.
Cons: There are no cons as far as I can tell, because being able to workis a privilege.

My capabilities

Working for myself as Self Employed. I've got a small team working for me. I'm trying to be always on site unless I've got to see clients or buy material. We work if there's work and have fun afterwards, we respects the clients privacy and belongings. We leave the premises in a clean manner and try to be of the premises before the client return from work. If I quoted 5 days for a project to be finished and its finished in 3 days my workers is getting paid for 5 days. I call it inspirational bonus. They work harder and make sure the work is right the first time. We don't normally work on week ends unless we have to. Family time is important for me. So yes we don't play around and make sure the client don't have anything to complaint about. This is building a special relationship between the client and myself.

Pros: The workers that perform more get a special bonus and if I have to leave the site for some reason take charge of the site for the time I'm not present.
Cons: We normally start to work at 7 am and nock of at half past 4 pm.

Excellent growth opportunities

Pathcare is a 24hr Medical company and our clients is patients who are, may and can be sick. So needless to say how accuracy and speed and working under pressure well was of utmost importance and I can assure you I excelled in all fields and more. My main job description was logging and capturing of all patient documents with the accurate tests and clinical data and doctors mnemonics etc that comes in from all pathcare depots and urgent stat labs and hospitals. Whilst capturing all this critical data ACCURATELY in fast-pased, high-pressure enviroment I also had to attent to the swithboard. That includes awnsering of all 4 lines of just my office and resolving queries etc. Speaking to doctors and lab technicians and assistants on a daily basis. I also had to assist my teamleaders and H.O.D with the training and assisting with the junior clerks. So I do believe I am a strong leader.

Pros: Great growth opportunities

Design & Handmade Wedding & Party Stationery

A typical working day is long hours. Sometimes from 6am until 6pm or until 10pm. I do design and handmade designs which takes a lot of time and hand work. I employ 1 employee part-time, to help me with bulk orders and packaging. Having my own business is very hard work. It has taught me a great deal about book-keeping and finances. Also to schedule my work at such a pace to get through it all. It has taught me patience, not every client is easy, it has taught me a lot about design, and a lot more computer skills than I previously had. It has taught me stress management, and better communication. I love what I do, all things design and paper is my passion. I love to experience new techniques or to challenge myself.

Pros: Great experience opportunity, as I am teaching myself things that I have not had the opportunity to learn before.
Cons: Very long working hours. Salary not always stable, some good months, some not so good months
