Phumla Randela is the founder and director of Lushaka Wealth Solutions, an accounting firm founded in 2020. She is also the chief executive of Randela Wine, established a year later in 2021. Although mainly focused on red wine, Randela Wine products include rosé and MCC, and are widely available in restaurants and stores.
“The journey of running your own business is not easy; it requires a focused, strategic plan with clear, achievable and realistic goals,” she says.
A qualified business accountant, Randela has shared her motivational speaking skills on podcasts, radio and television. She’s proud of the ongoing success of her two businesses, both of which were founded during the uncertain times of the pandemic. She encourages young South Africans interested in business to seek out opportunities, and to believe in themselves and their abilities.
“I want South Africans to believe in themselves.”
