Government - the biggest customer in SA – is broke. Here’s how to survive…

The government has run out of money.

The economy is toast and, if you believe World Bank forecasts, there are no prospects of much improvement any time soon.

The biggest pain post-election is going to be felt by the biggest customer in our land – government.

It's already spilling over to state-owned enterprises (SOEs).

SOEs are in deep supply chains; as a small business owner, you must try to determine how this will affect you.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Pavlo Phitidis, founder of Aurik Business Accelerator.

Phitidis discussed some strategies to survive, nay, thrive despite having a broke government.

Listen to the interview in the audio below.
