Advice to Young Entrepreneurs
‘‘Be honest with yourself’’
“Luck is very important – it is 50%.But,that luck will not come to unless you put in the effort and in the effort, a very important element is the daily review of what I am doing, where I am going & being ruthlessly honest with yourself. Most people blame the environment ……my belief is I CAN CHANGE and that we must learn to be nakedly honest with ourselves”
