The struggle of a government can be ease with the help of businesses. The more the success in business the more the expansion of the business. in a situation where report that are coming out is pointing that 75% percent of startup fail before reaching five years is alarming. Normally Not because these businesses are not intelligent in doing business. Many a time it boils down to our motive and planning to enter business. If the right intension is been set we will definitely plan the way we enter into it. The success of a business is mainly base on planning. the situation around us today is that because Mr. Phillips has open a small business and he is getting returns from it you will see jack with is dark vision as well rushing to set up the same business because he has the finance. As the saying goes when you fail to plan you are planning to fail. Following are the things missing for so many startups.

Marketing research: marketing research is the process or set of processes that links the producers, customers, and end users to the marketer through information used to identify and define marketing opportunities and problems. Marketing research is essential to the wellbeing of a successful business establishment, if we want to have a perfect control of what we are about to do firstly we must take the chance to do a proper marketing research before enter like cow. A well-grounded marketing research will expose the flaws of the current situation of the market, from which you will be able to evaluate the situation of the present marketing standing and make firm decisions.

 PRODUCT RESEARCH: product research is essential . It doesn’t make sense to enter into business without knowing the people that are interested in your products; you should know whether your customers would love what you offer. because you cannot go in for product that you yourself don’t like. As a business person do a proper check to at least know certain percentage of people that will be interested in what you offer. Benefit of what you offer benefit of what you offer also should be seen to the customers.

“AFRICA UNDER MORDAN DAY SLAVERY”

 

slaveryslavery-clipart-cliparti1_slavery-clipart_04.jpg

They say slavery has been abolished!!! Am doubt about that. Africa was known for series of glories, sometimes people say civilization started in Africa and I know it. At a time when the world is moving so fast to the extent we as African still are in a state of confusion not knowing where to start. In a situation where us as Africans has turn slaves in our own land is totally diabolic and insane state  upon us to find ourselves in this position . We have everything to move forward as a continent yet we have been caught up by dependency state which makes us believe always a messiah must come to rescue our situation. Sense to manage our continent is completely useless I will put it. Upon all the educated people we have in Africa we have still not able to distinguish between practicality and theory. All what I see about Africa development these days is theory on pepper basis. Until we have a paradigm shift we are going nowhere. Things I see presently around the world should have been and eye opener for Africa leaders … always these days on the internet, newspaper, and televisions headlines you will hear thousands of Africa leaving their land in search of greener pasture. Thousands have been caught and killed on peoples boarders thousands are been drawn on international waters just to have their survival. Moreover we are seeing establishment of foreign businesses in Africa each and every day but little successes could be seen. People that works in these businesses has nothing to show on their retired the maximum time of working set by some countries could not be met by these foreign investors or firms .from and expert point of view looking at the minimum wage in sierra Leone is totally  absurd to the highest level . With all senses how can families having two children working for the whole month and have a take away home salary of only $70. How the individual would balance that amount in his or her home is crucial many a time workers’ wages are been spent before receive it so serious at the end of the thirty days no salary remain.  My motivation is still strong for the development of Africa.  Little by little we will get there one day if only we act now. It is only in my country Sierra Leone I see foreigner has more space than the indigenous. When you the indigenous wants to speak they will bow under the table to communicate and at some point they are been bulling but can’t speak out …because immediately they speak they will eventually seen as the odd ones. In my opinion I believe that most of the problem we are facing today is because we have not set a better precedent to go by.

The must pay price for African development

FB_IMG_15388376790730619

All years out we have seen a change in regime. Countries to countries. Elections upon elections. President- in- president- out. Yet we are stack in one position as “change” because it constant . Competent leaders have come and gone. Good leaders are coming day by day. But the stories of African are just the same why? Corruption has been embedded in our “African” society as qualification to move forward; but the truth is it destroyed us to go backward ten times as “waist”. Whenever I speak to young African on the present state of African development few young people give ears to listen while the majorities just say things will not get better. With my experience and vision for Africa I believe that we will definitely bounce back with great ideas that will transform this continent “Africa”. This is the time! Now. I don’t want to believe that we must depend on foreign donors for our survival as Africans. But as it is now “tok am go  tok am kam” our leaders are still looking towards the western world for our survival to move forward. We are in a confuse state where we don’t even know where to start ,hungrily  masses  are watching for the “lighting messiah” to change the game. Hope is around 0.05% for the greater populace. We have all the minerals resources “that what they say” en I believe that …Africa must have been a place that could have definitely receiving huge profit from our God given continent  in terms of our touristic sites and places. “We have peace” they say en I believe that as well. Upon all the tragic moments we have gone through yes there are others who always keep their heads up and high for the slightest opportunity to strike back into their aims and objectives in moving forward. Countries like Ghana, Morocco, Egypt,Senegal,south Africa and other few are on the verge to give its people better service delivery in those countries. As our able professor said we are going nowhere if we do not realize that we are on our own. “Professor Partrick Lumumba”. Once we realize that we must solve our own problem in our continent that the times we will start getting to a well organize state. As it stands we are confused with series or lot of policies on the table not even know where to start. Continent like Africa must have learned series of vivid lessons as we move along .the state of my continent has totally confuse the two youth and elders in the land as we don’t have any specific age for youth as we go along. The habit of culture is disappearing slowly as ever before. Africans these days are giving a percentage in pride to the extent that we don’t even what to talk about what makes us distinctive “cultures” not anymore. these days you measure things of yester years to the young the majority will look at you as if you come from another land.

Some of the things we must do as Africans to bounce as ever before are as follows:

  • Respecting the leaders:

Respecting our leaders plays a great role in country development. Many a time we don’t tend to respect our leaders base on the egoistic nature of our minds which normally can be link to tribalism, regionalism, nepotism and lot more. When we realize that it doesn’t matter what background or region our leaders come from that the time we will start to achieve success in full.as it is we are lacking behind because of the above mind set of the majority of our country men. People only respect the leader in authority if they are coming from the same region or background, without that people will see you less important because you are not related in any way.when it comes to national development everyone should put hands on deck to achieve the aims and objectives of the leader in power only if we cultivate the habit of honors.the habit of respect is vice –verse-se.

  • MAINTAINING OUR CULTURE:

Where are our African designs, food, carving, storytelling, drama and lot more? Majority are gone .presently battling with few. We have forgotten our history and most of our history can be portraying with the help of storytelling and drama. Bringing of some of our dying lost glories will immensely change the game of the African story. Culture will definitely bring us back together .as for now we are divided base on the culture some African has inherit from the west .when they come on their return from the state to Africa they see all things as garbage and absolute, despite all the movement we might have made we should still should not look our culture as useless because it what unite us as people.

  • TALK ABOUT AFRICA AS A STATE THAT HAS BETTER THINGS TO OFFER:

Vice propaganda is on the increase about our society “Africa” even us that are sons of the soil talk ill about our continent. I have had a conversation were some guys said I would rather be in prison abroad(Europe), than staying in Africa. When I first hear that conversation I immediately said to them that there is no place like home. Following are some of the thing we can talk about Africa to bust our morale in the international: Africa has the world largest concentrated minerals in the world. Moreover half of the world mineral can be found in Africa. In addition Africa has the most educated president  in the  world that is Robert  Mugabe  and lot more…

  • Start anything that can employ yourself and At least two people.

The problem start when we don’t want to begin ,I tell you most of the world multimillionaires start from humble beginning en …once we starts we will reach to the position where you will have time to plan around your life to fixed certain things how you want them to go. If you are a petty trader do not say I can not move further than petty trading. Just by starting the strength will definitely come as you go along and by that you have built a confidence within you that will shape the way you think and act as well.

  • Fight corruption with precedent.:

Corruption has been the order of the day in my continent “Africa” not to say we are the only place or continent that has corruptions there are other countries as well. But the truth is you can speak better on a subject if you know it, because I lived in Africa that why I can authoritatively say corruption is keeping us behind. Many a time we have been caught up in a situation where corrupt officials are left  unpunished. Because stiff or hard precedent has not been set that is why we  keep seeing this satanic act I will put it. money or project which should cater for thousand one or a group of greed elite or politician will sit on it and eat it as if it is and inheritance. ,this days corruption is at all level, even the  ordinary man also give and take  in bribery. To fight this shameful and disgraceful thing we should set precedent on the corrupt official immediately the act occurs . for me whenever someone have done any corrupt practices I thing it best the flog that individual so hard in public to the extend he will never forget it . secondly charge or find the individual money that will keep his life bankrupt forever.
