Entrepreneur advice from Mrs Folorunsho Alakija


Folorunsho Alakija needs no introduction but if you do not know her we’d give you this short description – she’s Africa’s richest woman.

Her advice you must already know will be pretty helpful so let’s get to it.

On Perseverance

Nothing goes from the lowest to the highest level overnight. Perseverance is a tool that we must imbibe and we must realise that nothing drops on anybody’s laps just like that.

On Facing Challenges

So, working hard to achieve an objective is key. Anybody can aspire and want to be one thing or another but I assure you, there are challenges along the way, there are numerous hurdles. So, that you desire it and want it does not mean that you will achieve your dream so easily.

On Finding Light at the End of the Tunnel 

Be ready to face the challenges you will meet along the way. Look at the light at the end of the tunnel. Find that light and make your way towards it because there is light at the end of the tunnel.

On Distractions

Distractions will come, challenges will come but if you are focused right from the beginning and if it comes from your heart that you want to be this or that, including becoming an entrepreneur, they will achieve it.
