While still in school Niel recognised that he loved sales and business, and informed his (rather shocked) parents that he won’t be following in their academic footsteps.
Instead he chose to enter the world of business through sales. He wanted to learn “hands on” and after landing his first sales job at age 18 he soon broke all the records for the company he worked in, competing with over 350 sales people.
He has worked with and studied some of the top sales and marketing professionals in the world like Jay Abraham (the USA’s highest paid marketing consultant) and Tony Robbins (the well-known personal development guru.) He is also an avid student of the top Internet Marketing gurus in the world including Frank Kern, Brendon Burchard, Jeff Walker, Eben Pagan, Rich Sheffren, Mike Filsaime, Andy Jenkins and many more.
He has sold over R100m in services and is known as THE expert in marketing and entrepreneurship in South Africa
Every year Niel and his associates spend in excess of R1 million of their own money on Facebook, and the results he achieves beat those of even the best online agencies in South Africa.
Niel has worked with over 11 000 entrepreneurs, 80 JSE listed companies and 18 entrepreneurs who grew from startup to over R1 Billion per annum in revenues
