FRESH TOAST

Streaming entertainment means online movies and TV

 
BY LOUIS EKSTEEN

Streaming entertainment is fast becoming the norm for connected households. The latest music download numbers are a clear indication of a worldwide move towards streaming entertainment, rather than downloading and owning. (A quirky trend in the diametrically opposite direction is the massive increase in vinyl record sales. I, for one, love my new Crosley turntable.)

This streaming of entertainment rather than buying and owning is largely driven by a connected world with faster access to the internet, coupled with large-scale infrastructure development to allow effective quality video streaming. In a new decision bound to have broad impact for the delivery of high-speed internet, America's Federal Communications Commission has just increased the official benchmark for broadband speed to 25 megabits per second. Wow.

EXPRESSO

Balance in
business

 

BY KIM BROWNE

Balancing work, family and life

In my opinion New Year’s resolutions are a fun yet ineffective way to change bad habits. Who do you know who’s ever stuck to their resolutions anytime past January?

As a fledgling business, fast approaching our 4th birthday, achieving balance is something we seem to grapple with daily.

According to our founding client, Kim Potgieter from Chartered Wealth Solutions, achieving balance is vital to living and retiring successfully. There are eight areas that make up a Wheel of Balance: work, play, relationships, money, give-back, learn, health and purpose.

Kim is one of only two Registered Financial Life Planners in South Africa, and the author of a soon to be released book RETIREMEANT: Get the most meaning from your money – so she is well qualified to guide people in pursuing the life they really want.

In order to create her website, I read Kim’s book and was struck by how this same Wheel of Balance can be adapted and used as an effective tool to achieve balance in the key areas of a healthy, thriving business.

ON THE FLIPSIDE

In 2010 Theo Vorster of Galileo Capital approached Afrikaans channel kykNET (DStv) with the concept of a fireside chat with prominent business leaders. Sakegesprek met Theo Vorster is the result. This popular television show broadcast its fifth season during 2014. Twisted Toast Digital recently created a new website for the show, with all episodes easily available for viewing and featuring regular news posts.

THE BOTTOM LINE Recent work

Blue sky opportunity

 
Trophy Breeders® is an association of scarce-game breeders with several decades of cumulative, proven experience in quality game breeding. The annual Trophy Breeders® auction in Thabazimbi is a cannot-miss event.
 
This year Trophy Breeders® will add a Karoo auction for the enthusiastic game breeding community in the region, who have clearly expressed a need for a professional scarce-game auction. After many months of meticulous planning, Trophy Breeders® has confirmed its first-ever Karoo auction to be held on 27 May 2015.
 
Twisted Toast Digital was tasked to create a new marketing campaign for the Trophy Breeders® Karoo Auction. It's a real blue sky opportunity.
