Away with struggle contain all that is strife conquer the battle keep prosperity alive What is this struggle that within me abide? Inhalation, contemplation of struggles already fought Degradation, annihilation a lesson has been taught The struggle is a given; even when I was borne.

THE BIBLE

FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT TIPS:

Give generously, not grudgingly. (2 Corinthians 9:5) Give sparingly and you will reap sparingly: give generously and you will reap generously. (2 Corinthians 9:6; Proverbs 11:24) God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:7)

CAPE AFRICA PLATFORM A WA LK I NT O TH E NIGHT, 2 MAY FRO M 1 8H3 0 T O 1 9H3 0 “Borrowing its title from the acclaimed novel by Capetonian author Alex La Guma, A Walk Into the Night is an innovative project inspired by the history of the Cape Town Carnival. It is centered around a one hour-long procession with new work by visual artist Marlon Griffith, music composed by Garth Erasmus and curated by Claire Tancons. Inspired by the traditions of the Cape Town and Trinidad carnivals and West African shadow puppets it was conceived by Marlon Griffith as an "invisible masquerade". A Walk Into the Night is a processional shadow play, with various elements worn or carried by a multitude of a hundred participants, casting shadows onto horizontal and vertical planes along the itinerary of the procession, from hand-held white screens, to buildings, the sidewalk and the ground, participants and audience members.” – QUOTED FROM THEIR WEBSITE.

 Cyan Development Concepts cc 2009 Business Brief

Passion and Business People equate passion to the intense excitement they have towards a career, occupation or hobby. Passion is perceived as the fervour that carries you through hardships and challenges. People with passion do more than what is expected from them since they are naturally self-motivated. Passion is the driving force behind the achievement of dreams, setting of goals and a personal vision. People with passion challenge conventional thinking as they think outside the box and find solutions. Passion challenges you to overcome your fears, personal weaknesses, flaws and limitations. People without passion do not know all their strengths and have not reached their full potential. Passion drives you to invest your energy and time into things you believe in and want to grow. People with passion are solution-driven, ideas people and not afraid to make nor learn from mistakes Cyan Development Concepts CC PO Box 4022 Cape Town 8000 Tele/fax: 021 439 9579 Grant Williams – 083 7033 111 – cyandesign@telkomsa.net Celestine Doty – 083 985 6844 – cyanconcepts@telkomsa.net REG: 2007/109439/23
