ENTREPRENEURS WITHOUT ENTREPRENEURIAL SKILLS
As an entrepreneur or an aspiring entrepreneur, you have to know that what you need to achieve your dream is more than capital and a vocational skill. This is not to say that these resources are not important, in fact your ambition to become an entrepreneur begins from sourcing for the required capital and learning about what you want to work on. Many people in this part of the world however, overemphasized these two things. For instance, less than 5% of entrepreneurs with vocational skills like fashion designing, furniture works, farming, school, etc attend schools, training or seminar to acquire skills such as management, leadership, customer relations, etc The effect of lack of these skills are many. Some of these will be mentioned here:
1. These entrepreneurs make some money when they are young and as they get older, the money they make becomes inadequate to sustain the business and their family.
2. These entrepreneurs mismanaged their capital. When I say mismanaged their capital, don't get me wrong, it doesn't mean they spend lavishly. They however, for instance, see building a house or buying a car as achievements instead of re-investing on their enterprise.
3.They fail to retain customers. There is a difference between getting different customers that buy your goods or services, and building loyal customers.
4. They train students with the main orientation that he or she will graduate and leave them instead of retaining best students that could have helped in expanding their enterprise.
The best solution to these problem is to strive to acquire necessary skills needed to start and grow your enterprise.
