TUT student writes self-help and motivation book

Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) student Ofentse Motau (29) has published a book titled ‘Invest in Your Failures ‘recently. Motau is an ambitious and goal driven young adult, who was born and bred in Soshanguve. After several failed attempts the author wrote a book that encourages people not to give up.

He is the founder of Antelope Tours and Travel Holdings Group (Pty) Ltd and a student at TUT studying Accountancy. In an exclusive interview Motau told Gauteng News that people should try to invest more efforts in their failures by changing their mindsets.

“No one wants to fail but we do anyway because that’s how life is and as a result, we end up discouraged. So, I describe my book as a self-help and motivational book. On this book I encourage readers not to give up but rather try again by investing more time, money and efforts in their failures by changing their mindsets,”

“Starting to write this book would not be possible without my personal experiences because as an individual I have failed a lot in my life, be it academically or business wise but I took a sole decision to try again where I’ve failed. 

“Our lives have changed dramatically during the COVID-19 pandemic, and it can feel a little overwhelming at times. So, the book launch event will be held next year 28 February 2021, all details will be posted on all my social media platforms,”

The book consists of 8 chapters that are highly inspiring. According to him the book caters for anyone including all genders, age groups or race, whether you’re an entrepreneur, a doctor, or a lawyer.

“It is a letter to an African child who has failed and lost hope, be it in marriage, career, or business. This book is an encouragement letter of hope.” 

The Book Costs R160 Hard Copy and R50 Courier Fee, the book is on sale now. For more info contact him 079 581 8805 or visit  and Twitter: @O_Motau
