Television personality Palesa Madisakwane has valuable advice for young professionals entering the workforce, more especially the entertainment industry.

Bahumi’s mother took to her Instagram account to write in part, about the competitive nature of the industry and the importance of having a student mentality. “It is a very competitive and contested space and not for the faint-hearted. But what will take you far is being humble and having a teachable spirit.”

Palesa then advised young professionals to stay away from office gossip at all costs as it can potentially destroy one’s future. “Be careful the people you keep in the office space be careful whom you listen to and do your all to keep away from office gossip.

Office gossip will destroy your career your character and will destruct you from what you still want to achieve in life and your career.”

She further explains. “It is an industry full of jealousy and suckers, It’s a very small industry and word travels faster than speed boat, so anywhere you want to work at you will be judged by your character and behaviour first and reference ... this is motherly and sisterly advice... stay away from office gossip.”
