As humans we sometimes find ourselves in a state where we feel trapped, either by our circumstances or by our own frame of mind. To be in this unhealthy mental state, is not conducive to productivity and fulfilment and the lack of serotonin may make us miserable company to others and ourselves.

All it takes to jolt us back to a positive, creative, and progressive state is INSPIRATION.  By definition - the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.  Summarised, it encompasses – motivation, encouragement, impetus, incentive, stimulation, reason & inducement.

On a personal level I found my Inspiration at the recent Africa’s Travel Indaba in Durban.  I was inspired by how our nation got together to promote the destination, the incredible creativity of our people and the palpable, vibrant energy exuberated  by the enthusiastic crowd.

Inspiration can be found in things you see every day. Observe your surroundings, the people you meet and the things you do.  You may find inspiration in the smallest things. If you are in the position to travel and explore new places – seeing new things and experiencing new cultures, can give you a fresh perspective and inspire new ideas.

The products we choose to align ourselves with at Welcome Assist, are all from local sources whom we find to be inspirational – creative and robust – just like our nation.  Some of our favourites for the Winter months include:

Leather & Canvas Log Carrier


Double Wine Carrier

Bamboo Socks - Africa
