A little while ago, we at Zimbabwe Entrepreneurs decided to go through some of the reviews we receive from people who follow us on social networks. While most people are generally happy that we get to answer some of their business related questions, there were an astonishing number of people who did not like our information. They find that it does not apply to ordinary Zimbabweans. Some commented that we were selling false dreams and leading people to believe in principals that do not apply to Zimbabwe.
We had to take a step back for a moment. Consider our target audience. If they feel this strongly about the information that we are sharing. Is it in fact the truth? Are we really preaching entrepreneurship in a nation that does not cater for it? Is there in fact no hope for aspiring Zimbabwean Entrepreneurs? Is this economic crisis something that is so huge we cannot do anything about it? Is Zimbabwe Entrepreneur Zone – a source of information for aspiring and existing entrepreneurs – is it relevant to an ordinary Zimbabwean?
The answer is simple.
A wise man once said;
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can't....you're usually right.”
― Henry Ford
That is the entrepreneurship attitude that makes you successful. You need to believe it. We can give you so much useful information, and we could arrange as many start something events as you want us to. When it comes down to it, you have the power to make things happen. You get to choose to between working with what you have got or complaining about what you do not have.
You can choose to start something today. Take our advise. Start your dream business today. You can contribute significantly to the development of our country. It may not happen overnight but it you work on it, it will happen. Its your choice.
