These tips are for budding entrepreneurs or those climbing the corporate ladder.
#1. Save Money Religiously–I am a firm believer in saving a portion of your earnings on a monthly basis. My father used to say that if I couldn’t save one naira from the little I earned, then I won’t be able to save anything if I earned one billion. Saving is a vital tool in investing in your future.
#2. Work Hard-
The difference between talent and hard work is that one is innate and the other
can be acquired through sheer determination. Those who are relentless in the pursuit of excellence will always yield results. Growing up, my mother was
extremely hard working and through running her businesses she taught me the
power of resilience.
#3. Seize Opportunities– Be aware of your risk tolerance and weigh up the
value of an opportunity according to the potential losses and gains. After
assessment- act! Do not be afraid to take a step because you fear the outcome.
As the saying goes, fortune favours the bold.
