    When Antonie was in school, he did well academically but he wasn't sure what he wanted to be when he got older. He had some ideas of becoming an attorney, studying medicine, etc. but never had his head set on it. In just a short time, through his efforts, he created "Tribulant Software" which is a software development company which specializes in premium WordPress plugins. His company develops, markets, sells and supports useful and purposeful WordPress plugins to the community of WordPress users. If you are interested in programming and the thought of developing software (such as Wordpress plugins) for use by website developers and website builders, you too can start your own company. Listen to Antonie Potgieter of Tribulant talk about how he began with very little capital and all within a relatively short period of time.

    Established my service-led hotel brand (the umi London hotel to begin with) aged 26. I then opened umi Brighton, then partnered with investors to bring the Petrovka Loft Hotel in Moscow into the umi Hotels group. In 2010 I set up umi Marketing, a hospitality industry design and marketing agency and this is now part of umi Digital which also includes a booking software brand Book it With. I have had over 150 students working at umi on work experience or internship placements, from many different countries and host a minimum of two students at any one time. I also speak regularly at academic institutions and I am a Board Director for BETA (British Educational Travel Association) and STAYWYSE which I earned because of my work supporting young people. In 2010 I was proudly awarded the Hotel & Caterer Magazine Acorn Award which is given to the most promising 30 under 30 within the hospitality industry.
