I believe that there is no "one size fits all" approach to purpose. Everyone has got their bespoke purpose, tailored for their unique design.

It is on that vein that I chose to interview Awakhiwe Kona who is the Founder and CEO of Suitability Bespoke Suits. His company tailors suits that afford Young Professionals and Executives the opportunity to dress up as people who are ready to take on their different missions.

Awakhiwe has since opened Suitability Gardens; a beautiful venue for weddings and romantic picnics and lovers' get-aways.
