Rather Than Give Up, Start From Somewhere!
At age 21, i got employed into an organisation and was earning a 6 digits salary. Few months after , I brainstormed on how to spend my #salary
in a valuable way . I could have saved up to buy a car , buy clothes and other flashy material things which will depreciate continuously but I chose not to.
I have always known myself to be driven by purpose, when choosing my needs I use value to set my scale of preference.
So I saved up and diverted my salary into my MBA programme.
At 22 I felt I could do more for my country and I conceptualised #VirtualRecruit
. I knew I needed alot of fund so I was submitting VR's business plan for funding, in 2016 I got to the semi final stage of Sterling Bank's 'Meet The Executive' but didn't get to the finals.
When I noticed all I needed to run wasn't available to me, I didn't give up on adding value I focused on Temmy Balogun Media and Temmy Balogun Motivates, and so far I have ran both with my sweat, blood and resources available to me and am grateful to God for our growth so far.
My message this evening is directed to anyone out there who wants to do alot for their country or community but do not have enough resources, start with the one that is easily accessible to you , with time, you will save enough to work on others or rather get opportunities to execute them. Don't expect great things to come easy, they won't !
N.B: if you need business , media or career contents like strategic #businessplan
, marketing brochure, biography, film synopsis among others or #contentmarketing
