About Me

Hello – my name is Chris Wilkinson. Here’s a little about me.

I have caught up with the 21st century, using the technology available. Mostly free. Like Google. Gmail. And a host of others.
With a lot of help from people like Pete Carruthers (Academy of Business Owners)
His courses have helped me tremendously on my journey.

My SANA Story

I’m a Gold Medalist and Honorary Member of the South African Nursery Association (SANA). Although no longer involved in the association.
I am very proud and honoured to be a member!
I don’t want to brag, but I actually feature on the SANA Heroes Page.
Along with a host of other REAL Heroes.
We all made good music (classical and rock ‘n roll) back in the day.
Fun times.
But it’s time for me to go “Back to the Future”.
Online. Email. Independent. New Normal. And so on.

I am also a very proud South AfriCAN “Boykie” from the Eastern Cape.
Born and Bred. A long time ago.
Queenstown, to be exact.

The tide will turn, as it always does. I encourage you to just keep going.
What goes out, must come back in.
What goes down must come back up. Gravity in reverse.

We need to talk to people who want to hear what we have to say. 
With their permission.
It’s about sharing and encouraging people like you and me.
With a little help from our friends. Helpful Sharing.

Doing what we can, with what we’ve got, sharing with others like us.
Sharing stories. Not the ones we hear on Radio, TV News, Social media.
The ones we seldom hear about. The positive ones. The Good Stories.

I’m very grateful that I can still do what I do.
There are many, many people who are far worse off than I am.
At least I have a pension, meagre as it may be.
95% of it pays my Medical Aid. But I’m lucky enough to have medical aid.
And I can supplement it in small ways. With a little help from my friends.
Being of service in an industry I have been involved with for many years.

A SANA Hero? Well, I was, many years ago. Very happy memories.
Nowadays I just listen to my music.
Sometimes I dance a little. On my own. It’s good exercise. Keeps me young

Thank you to all my customers over the years.
You’ve kept me going. I appreciate that.

We need to stay positive. Alles sal regkom!

This is what I do to earn a living. Not to build an empire.

Simply Supplementing my pension. Surviving.
With a little help from my friends. Sharing.
Serving in an Industry I have been involved with for 50 years now.
My “overnight success” has taken that long. And so far, so good.
I hope you’ll join me on my journey.

I going to continue doing what I can, with what I’ve got, for as long as I live.
Because I can.
It may not be much, but I’m happy to share it with anybody who wants to.

I appreciate all the support I get. Thank you.

I hope you will find something of value for yourself here.

But, enough about me. How about you?
