Dr. Innocent Nahabwe, a business writer yesterday advised youth and entrepreneurs to have focus considering the business environment they live in.
“You cannot have six friends going to the left and you expect to go to the right, it’s impossible,” said Nahabwe while addressing the audience at the launch of his book, “Treating Small Businesses” at Kingdom Kampala.
The colorful launch graced by mostly friends and associates of Dr. Innocent’s, Media representatives and respected entrepreneurs was blessed with a cool dusk that saw attendees enjoy the event from catching up with comrades, sipping on brand whiskeys and soft drinks to appeasing their taste buds with various mouthwatering bites.
Kenneth Mugabi’s guitar and music waves also filled the air with aura of relaxation.
In attendance were some of the people who contributed a page or two in the book; Red Pepper’s Mr. Rugyendo Arinaitwe and a seasoned writer Mr.Ian Ortega who among others shared their tales about working with Dr. Nahabwe and more so extending a hand in writing the book.
In his remarks, Dr. Nahabwe gave a sneak peek of some chapters in the book, tackling the issue of self-employment.
“Start a small business alongside your existing job and when it’s established, start another business,” he said.
He further explained thus, “Employers should give a chance and encourage employees to have a business of their own because at the end of the day, satisfied workers will yield excellent results.”
He concluded by addressing the shareholding concept saying, “every share holder matters however big or small their input is and I personally believe in having equal dividends. While making “katogo” every ingredient and spice is essential. When the meal is served, it’s not about who brought matooke or a matchstick, everyone has a portion they bring into business, they complement one another for a wholesome result.”
