It’s a very hot afternoon here in Lagos, perfect weather for ranting about the failed system…….. So here
Not everyone will or can be an entrepreneur, realise this fast and and stop trying to “do something” just
because your roomate or course mate is “doing something”
except you are doing it as a hobby or supplementary source of income.
After some years of forming hustling you eventually still go and look for govt work after school….. Self
deceit or hypocrisy or confused human being
Majority will do white collar jobs, and that is the truth, if everyone became an entrepreneur, it would
not be very lucrative now would it?
Then who would buy or patronise the services rendered by the “many” enterpreneurs?
Some people will have to form the middle class of any economy, that is just the truth, and no need to
feel bad if you are one of the chosen many, the mid-class are the spine of any strong economy, any
sensible government knows that and hence does not withhold their salaries
It is a lazy and stupidly incompetent system that tells people to try and be self employed, simple
because they failed in their duty to create jobs
A sensible system creates an environment that is so conducive that you have the choice of choosing to
work for someone or for yourself and knowing you can make a success of yourself in either field .
Most of the people that go into enterpreneurship in Nigeria, have neither the acumen, nor passion for it,
but they have no choice since there are no jobs, or perhaps they do, but have their heads swimming in the tall tales being told by many “motivational speakers” (who are themselves looking for money) who
tell them that enterpreneurship is the only way to “make it”
hence we have myriads of failed businesses,
Most of such individuals would often do better working under someone, performing excellently in a
“work” setting, some of us do better as team players, receiving orders from others, etc….. And that is
We can’t all be innovators.
Even the term innovator conveys something rare, not general, one in many.
It is not a calling for all.
Do your government work, or bank Job or whatever!
Then if you have a passion or whatever, use that job to support that secret passion or hobby that only
you know about, at least until that passion becomes a self sustaining entity, capable of generating its
Do your government work!…….. Or whichever one you currently have.
