EventsByPearl is a luxury events and publicity company that was founded by Tshepang Pearl Aphane, born in Limpopo and raised in the Westrand. Miss Aphane was raised by a single parent who she says is her source of her motivation and inspiration, “I was brought up in a much disciplined atmosphere where values and principles were always a priority” she said. Miss Aphane is a Public Relations graduate from Boston Media House who is passionate about the media industry and events.
Before Miss Aphane started EventsByPearl she worked an 8 to 4 hour office job but went home to work on her dream of having her own events company. Finally on the 31st of April 2018 she decided to go and register her company with the stipend she received from the company she worked for, and also got business cards and a website running, “I was inspired by my boss and other entrepreneurs to start my own thing” she said. Although she says embarking on this kind of journey was not easy however, it was fulfilling for her to finally work on her dreams and what she is most passionate about. Besides struggling with getting start-up capital, another problem she faced was getting clients, however she applied for different grant programmes and for clients she has been networking more. Having social media presence and interaction helped as well, “through social media I signed my first client” she said.
