    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.
