It’s About Time For Success For Entrepreneurs In Africa
Other than the fact that many African countries have a poor rating on the ease of doing business index, a core factor that accounts for a business’s inability to survive is the lack of a burning desire. Success is for the hungry and desire is the emotion that will see it come to fruition.
#TIP To better manage time, an entrepreneur should focus on what they have control over. When you focus on concerns that you can’t control, you may lose sight of things within your control.
Also, ensure your beliefs and values align with the desired business result because these influence your time and attention.

iLDESIGNS is a design company that
offers branding solutions to clients.
Five years ago I registered iLDESIGNS company when I was still in tertiary and I realized that my design skills can actually build something great for me.
The vision I had for my business was to purely do something that I love the most and to look forward to every challenge that comes with it.
As a start-up or small business, your desire is to see the business grow and see yourself having many clients. As I was about to graduate for my diploma in Web Development and Application, I slowly built the business, from one client to 10, dropped from 10 to 5 clients as some were not paying and that affected the business. I would rather have 5 clients that do business well with me, rather than 100 clients that bring my business down
I had to take a leap of faith and end my relationship with clients that were not beneficial in my business. It was nothing personal, but a business decision. When you offer quality work and give great value to clients, you expect the same. My business grew again from 5 to over 100 loyal clients. iLDESIGNS is still growing strong.
Don’t underestimate your business by settling for less. Your business deserves the best, so is your clients.
How do I do it?
I value my clients and want what’s best for their businesses or brands. Building a great relationship & trust is important for me.
Don’t give up on your dream, understand that you need to start somewhere in life and along the way, there will be ups and downs.
Keep your head up and keep working on yourself to get better and do better.
