My Food Entrepreneurship Journey

My Food Entrepreneurship Journey

Having come this far, giving up is not an option in my food entrepreneurship journey. I have seen many of my colleagues and friends that started a business and less than a year, they are already thinking of giving up. Field experience has shown me that food entrepreneurship is not for the faint-hearted and people without liver. I have had my own share of ups and down and many at times I felt like throwing in the towel but I was lucky to be surrounded by people who encourages me never to give up and this has revealed to me that food entrepreneurship requires the process of time, consistency, persistence and a lot of hard work but above all work smarter and not harder.

So, in 2021, I have decided to focus on what is strong and not on what is wrong. I decide to seek for more information, education, knowledge, application and mastery/ skill of what will take me to my next level of greatness in my chosen field and that is why I surround myself with the right Role Model; Mentor and Coach.

Who do you surround yourself with as we jolly together in 2021?

While a coach might necessarily not have the qualities you have but have the ability to bring out the best in you. A Coach may not have your expertise or vision but he is positioned to bring out the best in you.

While a mentor and role model will INSPIRE you, a coach will INSTRUCT you.  

Will you join me on this journey?
