I have dedicated a lot of time and my life learning more about E-commerce. I even moved to China because of E-commerce. I Look up to Jack Ma who is the Founder and Executive Chairman of Alibaba Group. In 2015 I founded my own small online store called www.itemz.co,za which secured funding but eventually failed. I guess SA is not yet ready for Online Shopping. E-commerce In South Africa and the rest of Africa is still on its infancy stage, so I haven’t given up on Itemz.co.za, Infact we will be launching Itemz.co.za soon.
Learning a new Language
Dealing with another culture enables people to gain a more profound understanding of their own culture. Creativity is increased with the study of foreign languages. Graduates often cite foreign language courses as some of the most valuable courses in college because of the communication skills developed in the process.
Being culturally sensitive is key in our globalizing world. It is not enough to say “people from X country are like this.” It is important to look for underlying values that may explain a certain behavior in order to practice cultural sensitivity.Being aware of cultural values and norms is not only fascinating, but can help us understand international issues and conflicts, or even relate to the cultural norms of a foreign business partner.
People know me as this ‘POSITIVE’ person you can come across, but why it that so? Because I have an interest in personal development. Personality is not inherited rather it is developed. The process starts right from the student’s childhood. This personality is shaped afterwards on the basis of impact of various positive and negative factors in life. The importance of this understanding is that, one should always keep on improving his/her personality. In other words, if it is felt that there are some features in our personality that need to be worked upon, then it can be done.
Born in Johannesburg and now resides in China, Changchun, Siyabulela Releni is one of the youngest Entrepreneurs and great thinkers from South Africa.
He started being an Entrepreneur at a very young age. While his peers were busy playing outside, he was always solving problems trying to come up with great business ideas that will ensure his financial freedom. He founded over 4 start-ups and online organisations before moving to China to further his studies.
All this started by reading a personal finance book by Robert T. Kiyosaki and Donald J. Trump called 'Why we want you to be rich'. After reading that book, Siyabulela made a decision that he wants to become RICH, and he is on a journey to create that wealth he desires. He knows that money is the root of all evil but Siyabulela doesn't love money but he loves the freedom it brings to ones life.

Siya is also the Founder and managing director of itemz group, an Ecommerce company that owns itemz.co.za and Kozekuse.com. Siya now lives in China, Changchun.
He has a huge interest in personal development that's why some of his peers find him as an inspiration because he dares to dream BIG dreams no guy his age could possibly dream. "my grandmother always encouraged me to read any book i came accross because it wiil improve my vocabulary", said Siyabulela. He didn't know he would ever come accross books that will change the way he thinks about life and money.

My Favorite quotes
These are few of my favorite quotes from people that I look up to, they really get me going. When we find someone to look up to and admire, we are challenged, encouraged, and enlightened. We find a defense against harmful or trivial distractions. We are emboldened in our worthy pursuits. And we are better equipped to accomplish them.
