1. Be friendly | smile at people, acknowledge others, be helpful

4. Share your pride | focus on what you like about S.A and share it

5. Do your bit | do your job to the best of your ability every day

6. Think ! | think before you moan, rather apply your mind to a possible solution

7. Be fair | no one likes being ripped off, offer value and gain loyal supporters

8. Help | offer a step up rather than a hand out, you could change a life

9. Change | is not as scary as you think, embrace it

10. Be a Giver| rather than a taker and you will gain unexpected rewards.

  1. I especially focus on #4 all the time. I’m proudly South African and will promote this beautiful country as much as I can, even if people accuse me of wearing rose coloured spectacles.

  2. I am the same. Numbers 1 and 4 are who I am. If others think my specs are tinted, I don’t care. No country is perfect, but Mzansi is perfect for me. Thats why we are #shotleft travel ninjas. Passion
