xpert -Nelly Movine, the current Regional Chief Officer at Jumia, advises young job seekers to think about doing business rather than employment.
She advocates for entrepreneurship which she argues gives one a sense of entitlement and belonging as well as it is a fulfilling process where someone does what he/she thinks is right and good for them and the society.
She however advises that it is not a good idea to start life without some employment first to gain experience from big ventures and learn how they are run. It helps build confidence before risking cash in your own venture.
Being employed is part of the entrepreneurship learning experience where you have a chance to learn from people before resigning for your own. Many greatest minds in the world started with some sort of employment even if it meant a year or so before starting their own businesses.
“I believe in apprenticeship and the industrious Indian families in Kenya have proven this to work. They don’t give their sons and daughters businesses to run out of nowhere. They are groomed from a young age to take up their family businesses. I vouch for entrepreneurship because we’re still a growing nation and we need people to innovate, create and build things as that’s the only way we can grow as a nation,” Movine says.
Nelly goes ahead again to state that not everybody can be a businessman. Tts okay to be employed for the rest of your life but you need to be smart enough and do what entrepreneurs do since employment and entrepreneurship are symbiotic. You can be employed and still do investments, be a venture capitalist or stock broker.
She also argues in her parting shot that every person can be contend but not to settle; always work better for something more. Read and learn new things in life. Further, grow your networks through what you love doing. Anything that could make you better is necessary.
