Chinaemerem Joshua Ibezim
“In all labor there is profit, but idle chatter leads only to poverty.” Proverbs 14:23 NKJV
Someone did an analysis of how much the owner of a particular barbing salon in town could be making every month; to be sincere I hadn’t expected it to be that much. From the analysis done, if true, the owner of the salon makes more than a lot of people with white collar jobs.
In a country like ours with very high unemployment rates, a lot of our young people need to think about being entrepreneurs. I know a lady who sold portable table water during her NYSC days, today she has not less than three different businesses; I’m talking about businesses that are doing well enough to enable her purchase a brand new car for herself and live comfortably.
There is profit in all labour according to the scriptures, and it’s true. No one should be idle and unemployed. There’s something that everyone of us can do to earn money. You might require training, get trained. Don’t wait until you have very huge capital before you start, start small. There are multibillion Dollars worth of companies today that started from garages: with vision, proper management and good decision-making you too can be great. You will be great in Jesus name. Amen.
