By any standard this man is qualified to give you advice on entrepreneurship and wealth creation.
These are the words from his own mouth, “I built a conglomerate and emerged the richest black in the world in 2008 but it didn’t happen overnight. It took me thirty years to get to where I am today. Youths of today aspire to be like me but they want to achieve it overnight. It’s not going to work. To build a successful business, you must start small and dream big. In the journey of entrepreneurship, tenacity of purpose is supreme.”
Your desire and inspiration should be something higher than money. Oprah Winfrey said, “You know you are on the road to success if you would do your job and not get paid for it.” In other words your motivation in business should be giving your customers with solutions to their problems. Your rewards, not wages will be money.
