We had the good fortune of connecting with Nyiko Rikhotso and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Nyiko, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I am a born entrepreneur my success in life has been through entrepreneurship such as running a successful fleet of Uber cars ,Advertising agency JMI marketing group,I believe in Cash flow businesses because you can easily scale them for long term.I truly believe Freezy World Online Store is the next Amazon because Amazon started on my birthday which is on the 5th of July,which also drives me to work 100-150 hours week in and out for the past 12 months of starting Freezy world I have literally given up my life for Freezy World knowing that my next generation who has the Rikhotso surname Should never experience Financial problems because Freezy world will be the answer for generations to come.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Freezy world Online store was purchased from an established B2B company in the United Kingdom on the 28th of May 2021.
During our first six months of operation Freezy World Online Store has successfully managed to create jobs not only in South Africa, India, Zimbabwe to graduates who don’t have any form of work experience but possess exceptional creative skills and knowledge in terms of creating excellent content on social media our core focus has been to tell a story around the type of content being scheduled and distributed throughout Facebook, Instagram, YouTube.
What I’m mostly proud of is the person I had to become in the process learning programming languages which gave me the ability to develop a mobile shopping APP which will be launched this year.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
My favorite place in Gauteng is Sandton and Rosebank would probably take them out to a nice club Sumo or Black Door in Sandton plus there’s all types of exclusive restaurants in Rosebank and Sandton.
Another place would be to spend the week in Cape Town next to the Atlantic Ocean having dinner on the boat.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Firstly would like to thank my mother Florence Rikhotso and my ex girlfriend Vanessa for making it possible for the launching of freezy world online store which has now grown into a global iconic brand thanks to these two women who supported and believed in me that I can achieve greatness with hard work and dedication and always putting God first above everything because he gave me the vision to start Freezy World when I was at my lowest point in life.
