A day in the life of a personal blogger based remotely

A day in the life of a personal blogger who is based remotely, involves constant communication with the field team using various tools such as OneNote, mobile messaging services, telecon, Skype and email to ensure that I am kept appraised of goings on in the communities and small enterprises we work with. Rural communities and in particular, small enterprises in the rural areas face many challenges, namely access to viable markets, finance, transportation, raw materials supply, managerial and technical skills, ICT, product and service quality and awareness of government compliance and company registration requirements.

Together with the field team we facilitate, identify and link these enterprises to real opportunities.

My blog is about the my experiences and observations in rural, iconic landscapes of Namaqualand, Mzimvubu and Kruger to Canyons Biosphere, located in three of of South Africa’s biodiversity hotspots. I blog whenever I have traveled to these during which time I capture the sights, sounds, tastes, feelings and touches of iconic Landscapes.
