Entrepreneurs and Businesses are currently in a state of crisis due to the global pandemic. Many are in survival mode, barely struggling to move through the tides. As daunting as it may seem, all you might need at this time is a support system, a shoulder to lean on and hold your hands through it all: the hard decisions, making new plans, pivoting or just staying safe.
Today, we will share with you the story of Emmanuella, the CEO of a reputable food company in Lagos.
“As I woke up this morning, I couldn’t help but feel like so much time had gone by and I hadn’t achieved anything (as per this Covid-19 saga) I picked up my phone to check my itinerary for the day and thankfully at that moment, I saw a notification pop up, it read ‘you are doing well, keep it up’ it was a message from a community of entrepreneurs I had joined a while back and to be honest, it couldn’t have come at a better time.
Dear Queen, the entrepreneurship journey is a lonely one and we all need the right partner to hold our hands through it all. My community provides me some really amazing perks that has helped me launch, grow and scale my business over the years, I have access to micro loans, a ready market for my food, invites to exclusive networking events where I meet phenomenal people, training (even for my staff), and the best part for me is the access to a community of young and aspiring entrepreneurs and think tanks on telegram that I can collaborate and change the world with. Through out the lock down and with the current state of things, we are constantly engaging and supporting each other.
Recently, I got an email to enlist my business on a directory called www. 100connect.org which makes it easier for my customers to find me and I must say that the benefits far outweigh the costs. With just 3k monthly or 36k per year my business is growing and so can yours”
