Life after the university began full of hope; I was sure I would get a job that would allow me to live the life of my dreams. Unfortunately, Ghana’s economy was in terrible shape and life was frustrating. As time passed and I saw the dead end looming ahead, I reminded myself: My success is not in the hands of political leaders, the economy, or anyone else, but it’s rather my obligation, responsibility and duty to achieve success.
With my own words ringing in my ears and despite my strong fear of failure, I started a business. Now I am a successful entrepreneur. There is a story within my journey to success, however.
