MEN WITH MOMENTUM: Anthonie Du Plessis

Anthonie Du Plessis believes that his greatest mentor and inspiration is the Saviour. He is his moral compass, his strength and his direction. His inspiration for life is founded on following His example despite the circumstances and seeing through any and all obstacles or challenges placed in front of me.

“I have a passion to identify potential in people and then look at ways to provide a platform for them to develop and grow, not only in their skills set but also as individuals.” For Anthonie seeing people grow and reach the potential that not they even realize they have and then witness how they grow and mature energizes him.

Anthonie is responsible for all aspects of Financial Management, Operational Management, Strategic Planning and Development, as well as all aspects of Clinical-, Risk-, Quality- and Human Resources Management at Pasteur Eye Hospital.

“I prefer to translate inspiration into ‘A person’s calling’. I have had two huge business mentors in my career in the medical industry who were leaders at various multinational companies and still are at the helm of a very successful medical company; both of which today are dearly appreciated and respected friends.”

He thrives off his motto “Embrace the suck” no matter how tough the challenge/obstacle that lies ahead of you, through grace, there is always a way – see it through.

For Anthonie success is knowing who you are. “For me personally it is in realizing my dependence on the Lord. I don’t measure success in who has the most money, largest business or highest-ranking job. Success is finding and excelling in your purpose. Once you function within your purpose you realize it is there to serve your community and those around you. There is nothing more satisfying.”

When he is not hard at work he spends time with his wife and children. Anthonie could also be found helicopter flying, but admits that is has been put on the back shelf for now. “I also have a fervent interest in bonsai cultivation.”

Anthonie’s Finance Tips:

With the focus on starting a new business – any and all income you receive, budget that only 23% to 25% of earnings will end up in your bank account. And with that figure, budget even further to make provision and save where you can. That provides the foundation for further investment.
