I am turning 20 this year. A 20 year in my country is very young This is the time that you should be doing your college! You are still under your parents custody and everyone else still calls you a kid......
You can be assured of getting through education by 25 and get to work. Then have a stable (income/life) and probably get married in your late 20's or early 30's. Well this is Africa
There is one thing that I am very proud of. THE WARRIOR FORUM. I have been able to start up my own outsourcing company from here. It has now been running for the last four months. I have never worked anywhere else and I have also not run any other company so you can guess that this was a real challenge to me in the first months. I remember how tough it was with my first client and I eventually lost him.
Today I am not only proud of the little success I have attained but also of the many lives I am changing. Last year alone I was able to get four jobless youths and give them jobs. With only three computers and my laptop we were able to produce twenty articles daily (around 10,000 words).
This year I have added three more into the working team. Making it a total of seven employees! It may seem a small number for what I am calling a "company" but trust me I am so happy to see people making a living from it. This is a great achievement in my hunger stricken country putting in mind that this is all being done by a college student J
I have a few challenges one of them being that I cannot withdraw money from paypal.
The other is that I don't get consistent jobs. At times I have to operate under capacity and hence end up making big loses. Anyway this happens with every business.
The greatest of all challenges is that most people still think that Africans are primitive. The moment I mention that I am African they just vanish to nowhere. The truth is that if we are given a chance we can do better and greater things.
All in all I am not seeking for pity only wanted to share my success story and encourage everyone on this forum.
This year I want to give it a better shot and try more ways among them being creating websites.........
I ENJOY BEING FORUM AND IT HAS CHANGED MA LIFE
