last Laser Adventures got to the point of having a newsletter. It helps to
suddenly have a woman in the office! This newsletter was supposed to reach
you on the 1st of August 2011. Exactly 5 years after Laser Adventures started.
Yes, it was the 5th birthday
of Laser Adventures!
I would like to reflect on the past 5 years. The journey that brought Laser
Adventures to what it is today! The 5 very good, joyful (sometimes very
stressful!!) years. I would like to reflect by thanking the people that made it
possible and had an influence along the way! I will try and include everyone.
If I miss somebody, please know that you are also thanked!
company starts with funds. I would like to thank the person that believed in me
when the banks did not! Laser Adventures will not have been made possible if it
was not for this person that borrowed me the money when I needed it to start
this business. THANK YOU!
would also like to thank the three companies I worked for before I started Laser Adventures.
They taught me a lot about business, as well as the industry. Thanks Sarel
Steenberg (Namaste Tours & Training), Johan & Andre Boshoff (Adventure
Addicts), Kobus Loubser (Outdoor Galore).
would also like to thank all the staff that was
involved over the last 5 years. Thanks to all the freelance facilitators (and
friends!) I could count on every once in a while. Thank you also to Pieter for
the last 2 years’ working as the “hoofslaaf”.
I really appreciate your efforts! Also to our newest member, Marike. Thanks for
bringing a women’s touch to the company.
business will survive without clients
and service providers. To all my clients over the last 5 years—thank you for
all the business and also some friendships that where created. I really hope we
can keep this up for years to come! All the service providers that have served
Laser Adventures and helped to create a fun filled event for our clients –
but not the least. To my wife Monica that supported me and the business through
thick and thin. THANK YOU! I love you!
On the next 5 years!!!!!
FEATURED BUSINESS: MARIKE PHOTOGRAPHY
Photography chose me. The day I walked into the
Tshwane University of Technology’s photography studio, I was hooked. I
immediately filled out my application and started my studies in 2005. I
obtained my B-tech degree in 2008 and left the university with published works
including a music video compiled with stills.
In 2009 I decided that I want to do my own thing,
and so Marike Photography was born. Today we specialize in a variety of fields
including décor, interiors, architecture, industrial, portraiture and
commercial photography. Our functions and wedding photography are one of a kind
and we provide all extras from photo-booths to mobile studios and on-site
printing. Our clients are given a vast amount of printing options and mediums
and we recently started with our framing specialty. We are situated in
Centurion but travel all over. Please visit www.marike.co.za for more
At Marike Photography we guarantee to take your
photographs for the love of photography, with your interest at heart.
