Her NGO and networking experience attained her the role of Coach in Business Networking and Coaching (BNC). It is a company whose 23 year old CEO Munyaradzi Dongo started, with close communication and guidance from Engeline. It is in this company that any enthusiastic person in business and self growth is mentored and coached about different business models, how to network with others, and how to master the mind as the biggest form of capital that one needs for success.
Having attended several seminars conducted by BNC, Engeline has decided to take the batton stick and expand her business model for growth, and will in the new year see herself running the following projects concurrently:
- Health and Wellneess Clinic where she will merge Green World, Yoga, Medizone and Superlife for the total health care of communities she serves.
- Ubuhle Arts and Crafts Creative centre that will run as a wholesale and retail store offering a large array of crafters needs, a gallery and an education centre.
- Delicacy At Your Door (DAYD) is going to be a franchise among a business that has grown to be the biggest player in the sandwich business, Sandwich Baron.
This growth is necessitated by being a BNC member where business expansion coaching has unleashed the excess potential in contributing to employment creation, optimal health providence and getting the Umzimvubu Local Municipality community experience full health married with employment and wealth creation. Membership in BNC, and its partnering with CTACTI, Engeline foresees directed business growth, business ethics which will not only produce profit for her companies, but will see many unemployed youth getting jobs and being financially independent.
