MY BUDDING ENTREPRENEUR FRIEND: Henry u posted something some weeks ago about a lady going home with K1,000 after selling sweets… I bought that idea and it is really working for me. The kind of sweets am selling r small lollipops and I am making K600 per day profit…and guess what? I have made myself a money box from a nearby carpenter, am saving every profit I get by making a deposit to that box… will be opening the box every six months! Thank you Henry and keep doing the good work.
ME: Wow! That is great! But why keep the money in a box, instead of bank? Just curious
MY BUDDING ENTREPRENEUR FRIEND: Deposit it at the bank now adays I will lose my money than keeping it in this box! Imagine every day I go to the bank it will take K200 from where I stay (transport). Maybe in the future will try the bank coz I am just a student and want to start something big from the sweets
ME: You are very wise. Please keep it up. Don’t be discouraged. Greatness awaits you.
MY BUDDING ENTREPRENEUR FRIEND: Thanks Henry, will keep updating u about this…am benefitting a lot from you.
