Thinus did his B.Com at UNISA knowing that one day he wanted to work for himself. After having spent only a few years in the corporate world, he distinguished himself by being appointed the youngest person in the history of the company, on a management level. He then enrolled in an Entrepreneurship Programme at USB Stellenbosch. He soon realized that to become wealthy he would have to find his own way because the conventional methods like starting a business with a huge capital investment or using tools like policies did not work.
With a natural liking for innovation and internet marketing, he launched his first successful business online which sprung up out of a pet hobby in his study room at home in the beautiful city of Cape Town. He started several businesses from scratch without spending a fortune.
Thinus realized that thanks to the rapid evolution of the digital space, it was now possible to determine how best to use the internet for your business objectives. Thinus wanted to help his family and business people build real success by sharing with them his passion for marketing, business strategy, and his experience. He excelled in SEO and helped other businesses ranking first on Google for their main keywords. By applying his online digital marketing skills, he helped both his brother and son to earn incomes in excess of R150k per month within 18 months.
He is a follower of Tony Robbins and the Kaizen Philosophy, a Japanese word that means “a constant and never-ending improvement.” Hence, he did fire walking and arrow breaking as part of his life-changing exercise.
Thinus likes to spend time with his family and friends pursuing many outdoor activities such as 4 x 4 trips, adventure biking, and camping. In his younger years, he was awarded a black belt in Karate and have been coaching in his own club for many years.
Having completed the Agency FastTrack Apprentice course in digital marketing and client acquisition with his business partner, Inet, they have a track record of accomplishment as digital marketing strategists.
