The only part they told us about #Entrepreneurship was that we would be our own bosses. #But They never told us that we would fail many times before we succeed. They never told us that we would work 5 times more than our employees and not get anything sometimes. They never told us that this would #cripple_our_credit_score. That we will be in debt and owe alot of people money or sometimes bankruptcy.No one said anything about the #sleepless_nights trying to figure out a way forward. No one told us about the #stress and #anxiety. No one told us that this will cause conflict between us and or relatives and family members. No one told us that we would be #jokes to the #society especially when we start changing from one business to another. No one told us that sometimes we will go ten months without any income. Living in the edge and surviving through borrowing money from different people. No one told us that our doors would be shut down due failure to pay staff, they can’t get to work. No one told us that we not only liable with KRA taxes rather several other taxes and levies too what a pain of doing business with ever ending penaltiesNo one told us that our husband’s or wife’s or “fiancée’s” would leave us because they will not understand our journey. No one told us that we will have to be more than patient. That we would make so many mistakes end up losing alot of money. That at some point we would have to risk our lives in order to move forward. We had to figure this out all by ourselves. Many gave up on the journey. Some died on the journey.
But some of us after going through so much pain we decided that we were going to succeed or die trying . Some of us we are never giving up on this no matter what because we were born entrepreneurs just like a talented musician. We are now doing it and very aware of the circumstances. It’s #win or #nothing for us and it’s too late to go back now.
