Achievement Motivation Program

“Nothing is as powerful as a soul that is on fire…”
Carl Muller – 2003


About us

The Young Entrepreneur is a program to help you realise your dream. When you love what you do, you never work a day in your life. All of us who work here to coach and tutor you come from a background where we had to create our futures out of nothing. We read in the Bible on Ps 82:6 I have said, Ye are gods, and all of you are children of the most High. Everything you see around you was created by people that believe that what the prophet Asaph said thousands of years ago. And we have the passion and desire to pass on what we have learned in our lives as we created organisations that became very successful. All the tools we used and our strategies are at your disposal as we tutor you for the next 4 to 6 months.

More about our program

David C McClellan and his colleagues at Harvard University started doing research during the 1950s where he and his colleagues lectured. They did the research for more than 20 years on motivation and specifically the need for achievement. This research and specifically achievement motivation were described in his 1961 book, The Achieving Society.

When I attended this training program in 1997 (Presented by Prof Adré Boshoff) it changed my life. He gave me permission to present it I have facilitated it to more than 50 groups in South Africa. I have changed it through the years to what it is now. But the basis of the program is still that of David C McClellan. I also had it accredited at Service Seta, which expired a few years ago. It is based on the leadership and characteristics of an entrepreneur. Because of this program, I started working for myself at the age of 50 and my children also show these characteristics in their lives and are three are successful
