Catering with Authentic African Food on the menu. DC, Maryland and Virginia
“WOW!” Catering with Authentic African Food on the menu. DC, Maryland and Virginia.
Starting a business can be terrifying and almost impossible when you view it as such, but if one takes the vantage point of unveiling one’s passion and exploring your potential then this almost impossible task can be accomplished. Obviously you eventually have to go beyond pursuing a dream and a passion. It takes, sacrifice, hard work, focus, dedication and, most important of all, believing in yourself even when others don’t or when the going gets tougher. I consider that the make or break point and if you can successfully cross to the second stage, then half the work is done and you are on your way to owning and running your own business.
The right people
Human Resources is one of the most important things in your arsenal. Surround yourself with the right people – be it family, friends, well wishes or mentors. For me, it was my wife (how lucky!). I think she believed in me more than I did myself. All she kept asking me was “I don’t see why not or what are you afraid off.” I always found it easier to say no than to say yes but her attitude helped me to change my attitude. Surround yourself with dream makers, not dream crushers! I highly recommend “Dare to be a dreamer” by Rev. Dr. Sadick Arthur.
It’s not about the money – Values first
Don’t consider becoming an entrepreneur for the money – you might have to wait a little while for that to start coming in. My main reasons were my passion for culinary arts and my desire to serve my community. Having the right reasons helps you to persevere because there is intangible rewards every day. Get a true vision and core values as a compass to help, generate, grow and thrive your dream. Know what you expect as a result, see how to accomplish that result realistically and know where that result will lead your ambition for growth and success for the future of your dream.
