How Thobekile Mdlalose’s husband’s illness inspired a wellness business

Johannesburg –  She is in the business of promoting good health.

All registered with the SABS, Thobekile got into the business after her husband Sunny Mdlalose was hospitalised for a major ulcer’s operations.

“I had to learn independence the hard way,” she says.

For many years I had been working a regular job, not earning much. When my husband fell ill and had to be hospitalised, our breadwinner could no longer provide,” Thobekile says.

“After being discharged from hospital a friend introduced me to EsyLife, the supplier of the organic products which my husband used along with his chronic medication,” she adds.

Thobekile later learned that it was possible to stock up on the products and supply people across the country.

“I kept my job but started selling the products. They are healthy, organic, no chemicals and can be taken by even those on chronic medication because they come from nature,” she says.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic started people have invested more in their health by eating well, taking vitamins, and using organic products to make sure they maintain good health.

“I have had to leave my job and focus on the business. I have also assisted people across the country in making an income as distributors,” she says.

“We need to start creating various streams of income while taking care of our health. We are living in uncertain times and the dream is to create a future for our families and children without always expecting handouts and waiting for someone to save us. Some people are selling fruit, some sell clothes, and health and wellness is an important part of our lives and we need to invest in it,” Thobekile says.
