By the distinctive feature of this meeting, I believe my target market is a crop of aspiring and emerging entrepreneurs who are equipped to take their world through a hurricane. So, I do not see myself speak to some younger women and gentlemen (because the case is), but with younger entrepreneurs who will grow to be commercial enterprise giants in few years yet to come. Then, you will recall but might not understand this little large standing in the front of you – because he could have grown huge too!
Let’s thank God for ideas. Entrepreneurship is a subject that goes past beginning a business and staying an enterprise proprietor! It’s not approximately blowing your trumpet, giving yourself ego-centric titles: CEO, COO, OM, OPC, EFCC – because you have got formed yourself right into a business enterprise. No! But, if ideas have been to equal entrepreneurship, absolutely every one of you would have been tremendous marketers, outstanding inventors, extraordinary commercial enterprise males, and females.
The bitter reality is that as profitable as entrepreneurship might also appear, its assignment is not for all and sundry. A senior pal once said to me in an interview dialogue I had with him: “You want the right mindset and skill-set. Don’t strive it (entrepreneurship) till you recognize these two!”
I need to sound a observe of warning too. Entrepreneurship isn’t a plan B. It isn’t an opportunity for folks that couldn’t get white-collar jobs. Thank God for mouth-watering salaries, but entrepreneurship is not a preference you are making due to the fact you couldn’t get at ease employment at Shell or MTN! A potential scholar, who makes a federal-owned Nigerian university their 2d choice of the organization when filing the paperwork, has already decided their fate!
Really, the growing toll of unemployed graduates has pressured many to appearance inwards. Ironically, this case has its positives. In those days (as we had been informed), as a graduate, you have an assurance of an awesome process expecting you. But these days, the opposite is the case! Even with your M.Sc or MBA, you could want to return it up with a professional certificate and several years of arms-on enjoy.
I do now not care what number of MTN, Shell, or Chevron that has rejected your employment request; all you need is God to grin at your apparently-looking small enterprise. You will exit there and storm your world! I see due to the fact giants are bobbing up from this meeting.
What then is entrepreneurship? Who is an entrepreneur?
An entrepreneur is, in reality, a unique person. Entrepreneurs locate it tough or impossible to work for a person else, although they do paintings for their customers/customers. And occasionally live with numerous screw-ups. They are willing to place the whole thing on the line for the passion and love of seeing their organization develop…
An entrepreneur has the ability to dream massive. The entrepreneur has the qualities of a frontrunner. A leader is aware of what he wants. He is the one who created thoughts, particular opportunities, and conceptions. He is prepared to take dangers.
The following humans have something to mention about entrepreneurship:
Alan Sugar: “An entrepreneur, if there’s this type of component, is a born schemer and thinker up of things.”
Hunt Greene: “Everything is continually not possible earlier than it really works. That is what marketers are all about – doing what people have informed them is not possible.”
Michael Smurfit: “The entrepreneur is like an eagle… He soars on my own, he flies alone, and he hunts by myself.”
Tom Peters: “Entrepreneurship is unreasonable conviction primarily based on inadequate evidence.”
The Nigerian enterprise panorama consists of marketers who, regardless of their humble backgrounds, withstood the hurricane and are nevertheless standing tall in their pastimes.
