“I attribute my success to the great team that surrounds me!” – Khuli Chana
Khuli Chana recently hosted the first Lunch Bar Life Lessons: Music Edition session, where he was joined by leading career coach, Vumi Msweli, to share the learning and lessons that have helped shape his career.
Earlier this year Lunch Bar announced its partnership with legendary musician, producer, and businessman, Khuli Chana as part of its mission to fuel Mzansi with collective goodness by bringing much much more to the next generation.
Khuli maintains that ‘’success is a collective journey’’ and the session, which was held at the Khuli Chana Studios in Midrand, was the ideal opportunity to introduce the community who have helped bring his music and business partnerships to life.
Exploring the different career paths available within the music and entertainment industry, Khuli’s business partner Yithi Zulu, spoke to tactics to build longevity in the entertainment industry, while his long-time music partner KayGizm shared where to find the inspiration to create music despite difficult times.
Understanding your business and your income streams is essential. Does your offering allow you to make money even when you’re not physically present, are you selling your time or receiving a fixed pay check? The average millionaire has seven streams of income - so consider the roles different income streams play in your overall success. Your side hustle may become your main hustle and help you achieve your financial goals while your fixed employment pays the bills while you build your empire, never underestimate the role each plays in your journey.
Understanding your finances: separate your personal finance from your business finance, which helps you to better manage your business finances, spot areas of growth and better understand how your money is spent. Vumi advises not to spend your money to impress your peers, focus financial spend on building the future you want. Instant gratification doesn’t always result in long-term success.
Understanding the power of collaboration: Formula 1 motor racing teams depend on their pitstop crew to refresh the vehicle and direct them onwards. Who do you have waiting at the pitstop? Who are the people that refresh you, guide you and help you reach the finish line? Select your team carefully and ensure they understand your goals and vision to enable you on your journey. Remember your support crew don’t all have to look and think like you – adding diversity to the people who surround you allows for different perspectives, which could open up new opportunities for you.
