Many women have the intention of doing or starting something but the fear of failing has held them back.
The theme of the International Women’s Day today is however, asking us to be bold for change
So we asked some naija women the one thing they would start or do today if they were not afraid of failing.
Below are their responses.
I would register a professional service firm. One arm will deal with sports business and finance, another arm will deal with business process optimization and the third arm will deal with IT advisory/consultancy.
Personally if I’m to do anything, that will be stepping out of my shell and dive into that dream I’ve had for years but for lack of courage, I have left it lying fallow. Also, having in mind that my decision will bring food on people’s table and also encourage other ladies out there to take steps in bettering their lives.
In conclusion, it is conquering fear and all the “what ifs” that have clouded my mind for so long a time.
I need the courage and a cogent reason to resign from my job to start my personal business, but this recession is scaring me.
I am a student and I will like to start a hair business but getting the right customer is my fear. Can they afford it? I don’t want people buying in credit, promising to pay and they don’t and this may make me end up in debt.
The fear that someone may see cockroach in my food and the fear running into debt has been stopping me from starting my food business.
I love children and I’ll like to start a daycare but I’m scared of something bad happening.
