Meet The Goodmans

Jana and Freddy Goodman are the proud parents of two gorgeous little souls, Tristan (7) and Amelia (17 months). Jana and her husband Freddy met in Johannesburg, where in 2007 they decided to move to the beautiful coastal town of Plettenberg Bay.

Boasting stunning shorelines, the couple tied the knot on one of the beautiful local beaches. The planning of their wedding gave birth to their new business venture, and in 2011 they started a local events company called Confeti Events.

In 2012 the couple welcomed their first child into the world and a few years later they got the exciting news that their family will be another soul richer. “Our children have brought so much love and fulfillment to our lives and they mean the absolute world to us.”

The Goodmans are a very close knit family who absolutely love spending time together, whether it’s a day on the river, boating and relaxing in the outdoors or having a braai at home. “We love to snuggle up in front of the tv and enjoy watching Netflix together.” The family prides themselves on quality time, cooking together, getting creative with painting and art, as well as doing flower arrangements.

Their son Tristan goes to the Raphaeli Waldorf School where he is now in Grade 2. He is super creative, loves expressing his artistic mind through art, and building amazing structures with lego. Tristan and baby sister Amelia have a very close bond. They adore each other. Amelia loves to follow Tristan around everywhere and wants to do everything her big brother does.

Not only has their family grown over the years but so has their business. The couple broadened their entrepreneurial horizons and now owns Locals Taco & Tequila Lounge and Confeti Events has grown from humble beginnings to being a key player in the events industry.

“We have a very busy lifestyle, but quality family time is of utmost importance to us! We are looking forward to Christmas and definitely to 2021.”

The Epi-max team spent the evening of 22 September sharing valuable information with our group of baby mommies. The online session was filled with scientific snippets and practical pointers that helped the mom’s understand the benefits and uses of the range of Epi-max products better. Thank you to Salmari Fourie and her team, for the insights shared and valuable BABY TALK provided!
