I have written extensively about the Business Manager Workshop because it is one event that I have not missed since its inception 4 years ago. You can read about some of my previous articles on this event:
- FACT: Win N1,000,000.00 (One Million Naira) Business Development Grant!
- Another interesting one is the interview I had with Uzo Nduka, just before the 2013 Edition; An Interesting Interview with a Business Guru and Advisor, Uzo Nduka.
With respect to this year’s workshop, these are the words of Uzo Nduka, the CEO of Domino Information Company Limited, organisers of the Business Manager Workshop;
Nine out of every 10 persons that wants to start a business will tell you they have challenges with funding, meaning they do not have a lot of cash to start with. So, what they need to start with would be the idea or solution or thoughts in their hearts, in their mind. That is the starting point for majority of us.
When you start from that point, you will find out it is a very tough task and you will often be discouraged when you are dealing with these tough tasks, you will often get to the point where you will say I cannot cope anymore because there may be no evidence that you are on the right path. You are like a man or woman on a long journey that has no clearly charted routes to follow to that destination, and you need various kinds of vehicles to be able to travel along that pathway. For every one of us who is on this entrepreneurial journey, it means that at many points we all get discouraged, we search for evidence that we are on the right path, we all seek encouragement from various sources, we seek inspiration from sources bigger and deeper than us, we seek strength from people bigger than us. So, at the end of the day we all need inspiration and encouragement.
“So, this year, during our workshop, Sam Ohuabunwa will help address issues on how you can carry on when you are discouraged, when you cannot see a way forward, on how to hang in there when the challenges are overwhelming, when the issues are too much for you to bear, when you do not know how you are going to pay salary next month, and perhaps you are already owing about two months salary and you can see it on the faces of your employees that the non-payment of salaries is taking its toll on them.”
