About me

My interest in business development and attempting to realize my own business ideas has been inspired by my experience in my teens. The Business Administration and the e-Learning Entrepreneur courses cultivated in me an idea to succeed, collaborating with people to achieve and providing society with demanding services. After carrying a research on leading transport companies in Sierra Leone, I decided to have a similar career to advance higher than before. Experiences from business activities have taught me to provide quality service to humanity by undertaking diverse and challenging duties.

  1. Persistence is key. You can find contacts online and then build a conversation that allows you to meet them in person. Often, immediate friends, family and past colleagues have great suggestions on people they know,. In short, talk to as many people in a day as you can either online or from your own network . i call it inorganic and organic networking.

How startup can build management skills?.

Comments

  1. Hi Sam, great question. Today, everything you need to know about management is available on the internet. There are multiple sources such as Massive open online courses (MOOC's) that can provide you frameworks to manage various problems. Also, experience is the best teacher. As you grow, you will realize the need to create "standard operating procedures" that will provide the rules needed to conduct your operations. Creating policies such as expense management policy, attendance policy etc. provide an overarching framework. On a micro and small scale, the entrepreneur has to rely on self learning.
