THE BUSINESS IN YOU DAILY: Feedback from the “Starting Small” Strategy

Remy Chukwunyere writes from Imo State.... 

Good morning  and welcome to the Business in You Daily, once again!

Today, I am going to take a few feedback from readers on the subject of starting small, which we discussed yesterday. For many people, the concept of starting small is a very important and success-driven strategy. So, let’s see what we have on the conversation thread. 

All the way from Kenya, Carol Kezziah Wambui said “My first business about 10 years ago was started on an idea. I refused to tell people what I wanted to do because I was aware that I had no money and no clients. So I jumped into the deep blue sea alone. It was only one person that encouraged me. I discovered that some dreams have been killed by too much consultation.

As far as I am concerned, if you were strong enough to birth a dream in your mind, it means, you can think it through in the watches of the night, build confidence within yourself, cast off fear and launch it out. There is help that comes only to the bold starters. My business has grown by leaps and bounds over the years. 

Though my beginning was small, and I had to sleep hungry on a few nights in the beginning, today I can boast of enlargement. The naysayers of the past have become my fans, all to the glory of God!”

Responding, Remy Chukwunyere said “Every successful man or woman has a story of small beginnings. Our youths must be meant to realize this important fact. Now, MBA schools call it "lean innovation", which is an ordinary common sense of taking off small with your little resources and watch your business grow. 

I am also a living example, I started off my NGO with little or nothing, just the same year, I graduated from the university and secured a grant from the USAID. That was my first and major breakthrough in life. That's the way it is always, if your success must be sustained. Don't forget that overnight successes through fraudulent means don't last. God bless you all!

Again, Carol Kezziah Wambui replied… “What if you had stayed among the masses, fearing, waiting to create an image first, to gain finances, time would have passed you by. The USAID grant would have been given to someone else, and you would have become just a spectator in the arena of life. Help and helpers come only to the bold starters! Those who have no image to protect! Those who know with conviction that it can work, that it will work!”

In conclusion today, I want to remind you that God is not a magician. He only blesses the works of our hands. If you have nothing at all in your hands, what is He going to bless? Think about it and call me on 08038702075 or sign up now for the Youth Cooperative and Enterprise Academy at www.youthscare.org

Many thanks for your time you have a wonderful day ahead of you.
