Why trust my content?

Of course, You might wonder what makes me different from other individuals in this booming industry, and here are my reasons to persuade you into following my content.

I am just a normal Close Protection Officer working in the private industry for over 5 years now. No, I did not join any military or police force, although I wanted to and tried to. I was not granted the opportunity and I was surely not going to quit on my life passion. That is when I started training in the private industry. With a variety of contact sports and martial arts training I worked up to being an Armed Response officer, which led to a tactical officer, and eventually, I found myself being a qualified CPO in the private industry working in RSA. With the crime rate we face daily in this country, it is safe to say there are several highly skilled private sector companies and individuals with adequate experience.

I am no specialist yet, but working in the industry is undoubtedly a deep passion for me. In my journey, I have certainly seen several errors and mistakes being made not only by myself but also by colleagues and employers/employees I have worked with to date. So I have made it my continuous mission to help individuals refrain from making these same errors and mistakes.

As stated previously, I am no specialist and I do make mistakes on my journey, so please do not accept my word as law or hesitate to correct me from your own experiences.
