True prosperity of real people is not gotten through inheritance but by productive work. Wealth is created by direct effort at creating reciprocal value that are exchanged for a premium. In essence, a nation prospers by the aggregate positive economic activities of her citizens. This is why business ventures matter.
A nation must encourage her people to always seek to create. In creation, money and values exchange hands. When more and more of these happen, many more people are put to work and have gainful employment. When there is gainful employment, there is good money to afford the good things of life and when this happens, a nation’s GDP increases and its measure of wealth soars higher. The resultant effect of that leads to reduced social tension. The nation can then remain peaceful and is available to accommodate development. Everything ties together in that manner. This is why ventures matter.
Through the capacities of groups I identify with where we promote our ideals, I am more passionate about grooming businesses. SMES constitute not less than 70% to GDPs of developed economies. Everything needs to be done to stimulate this sector of our economy. Stimulating them however involves a long list of items to be checked out: opportunity identification, gap analysis, business set up, sales, capital raising, marketing, finance, people management and so on. These must be intentional. We must build capacities of people and then empower them as much as is realizable so that they can contribute their own quota to the economic well being of our dear country. This I continue to engage in having been priviledged to establish businesses in the fields of IT, Construction, Commerce, Energy, Consulting and Agriculture.
Governments have roles to play and so are individuals who must support the efforts of government. It is a task that requires all hands to be on deck.
