START by Kehinde Olagbenjo

I was very surprised this morning when a guy selling bread at the road side asked my brother to accompany him to the car dealership in other to buy an 18 seater Bus! I was also informed that the same guy had built a house, was married with three kids.

This guy graduated many years ago, searched for jobs and could not gain employment. In other to survive he was determined to get engaged in menial jobs. He began to sell bread at the T-Junction of a major road in Lagos. Today he is financially stable, doing better than most graduates in paid employment.

A lot of young people are unemployed as a result of laziness and pride. They are not willing to get their hands dirty and do the required hard work like the rich do. There is dignity in labour even in carrying out menial jobs. Creativity would differentiate you from the other person doing same;all you need is packaging.

If you must make money, be ready to work hard, money should not be your priority in the first place, providing a service that gives value should be topmost on your list. Don’t be deceived by your degree there are a lot of graduates who are jobless and broke. Find something doing.
Someone earning Ten thousand Naira  monthly is better than someone hoping to earn Two Hundred Thousand Naira monthly. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a step.

Start something today
