Entrepreneurs in Cross River State have been urged to think outside the box and don’t wait to have specific amounts of money before starting up an enterprise.
The charge was given by Mr. Damian Tobi, CEO Made Studio and Mr. Kelvin Essien, CEO Calabar Visual Art Studios on the maiden edition of “Lessons From CEO’s With Frank Edima” on FAD 93.1 FM Calabar with the topic “Developing Spirit of Enterprise and Ignoring the Sense of Entitlement” monitored by our newsroom.
Mr. Damian Tobi, CEO Made Studio, Calabar said: “Having an entrepreneurial spirit does not make you a good business person.
“Developing the spirit of enterprise and ignoring the sense of entitlement is the key towards emerging entrepreneurs, implying that it is only in this vein that young entrepreneurs can thrive.”
Another guest on the program, Mr. Kelvin Essien, CEO Calabar Visual Art Studios called on “youths in Cross River State not to wait until they have huge amount of money before starting up any businesses, small or big. My first capital is my strength”.
Mr. Essien added that “Kings and Queens are born today and not tomorrow”, ointing out that time waits for no one. “The best you can do is have background information, gather resources, network with people and get money to get started.”
‘Lessons From CEOs’ which is aired Mondays on FAD 93.1 FM Calabar is geared towards bridging the gap between existing and emerging entrepreneurs in a bid to leveraging on their failures and successes.
It is also a platform that seeks to harness the abundant entrepreneurial potentials that exist in Cross River State with a view to putting young enterpreneurs in the State in the national economic map.
