As a Young Entrepreneur, How do I break even FINANCIALLY?….

First of all. You are not alone on this chair, or table so to say. It is a concern most of us face, even the “so called” ‘established ‘ business owners- from your own point of view. You assess them as established, but they believe they are equally on a road to somewhere.

When people for example call me a big girl in the industry. I sometimes look around to check if I’m the same person they are referring to 😊. Because I see myself as a goal getter same way they themselves. Our goals may be different yes, because some of us have played our friendly matches, our qualifying matches and now in the real game.

We are all on this pitch. Everyone wants more money. You do, I do too

But, your concern is how did they get there, because it seems you are just struggling through some thick bushes right now. Believe, it’s a matter of time. You will score more goals on this field.

Finance is why you are in business. Or part of. So you can’t give up yet. Except you feel this lane is not your own.

Having funding issues is normal, many startups face this. And if your business background is not as solid as some, you might find it more tasking. Like, if this is your first business. Getting everything going won’t be milky smooth.

Do your background checks. – know the pits and rocks in this field of yours. Its easier to play when you are familiar with the field. Don’t believe what some motivational speakers say, they make it sound like it’s just a finger snap solution. It is a PROCESS…….

Keep doing your ‘DO’ – in my words. Network and meet people that will help. Some people will only tie you to their aprons, avoid or break from them.

Keep your ears and eyes open and be ready to take risks. Life itself is one big risk. Seek available funding options around you, they keep you in check at times, because you owe your responsibility to ensuring you dont fail on it.

Start small. Don’t price your businesses the way A or B is pricing theirs. What works for you is not what works for them. They may be selling according to their circle ,connections, etc. Is your price fit for your market?

Basically, discover what works for you. It will make your growth easier.

Maximize the power of social media. It is helpful. Share someone’s content, repost, like, follow relevant people and hashtags, build your virtual circle.

There is no end to growing, remember. We are all learners in one way or another. So keep doing it.

You’ve often heard the phrase ” he / she looks put together “. It’s comes up when you see someone looking all “set”. Nothing missing , nothing broken so to say kinda look. A look that matches the time it’s being used. In case you don’t know , there are many ways you can look out of place, over or under dressed for an outing.

Create an impression when you enter a place. When you appear put together, you ooze self confidence. You intimidate your fear. Something about you is walking head held high.


  1. KEEP YOUR NAILS WELL GROOMED. – especially ladies, there is something catchy about well manicured nails and pretty nail polish. I’ve noticed people notice. I’ve at many times got compliments on it. And that tells me, people are watching every part of you. It tells them more about your personality.
  2. YOUR LIPS – avoid keeping chapped lips. Your lipstick or lib gloss is an accessory too. They have a way of brightening your appearance and balancing your look.
  3. YOUR BROWS FRAME YOUR FACE. some horrible looking eyelashes can cause wrong eye movements when you are talking to someone. Some brows look like they’ve been drawn with ruler.
  4. YOUR HAIR MATTERS- you just can’t afford having bad hair days all the time. Get your hair done well.
  5. SUNGLASSES- you can’t achieve that look of being put together if you keep squinting. If need be due to weather etc, use sunglasses. Squinting makes you look funny. Look chic, especially when it’s an outdoor event. Sunglasses gives you that look.
  6. HOW YOUR CLOTHES FIT. – the fit of your clothes make or mar you. Dress to suit your body shape. Don’t be too body conscious, wear what makes you look and feel good. And appear smart.
  7. HOW YOU SPEAK – your words should be well seasoned. It says a lot when it comes to first impressions. Select your words carefully. Try to leave an impression of an intelligent and beautiful person.
  • Wherever you get to, everyone draws their impression based on how you make them to. And this conclusion is drawn in the first few minutes they meet you. Not all judgements are perfect , but when you step out. Let everything about you speak even before you utter a word. And when you speak, may your words match the impression you are trying to pull. So help you God.
