The Problems: Knowing the fact that over 60% of Small business may likely fail within the first 2-5 years, it is import to identify the causes of this failure and devise a lasting solution. The SME sector is the largest employer of labour in any developing economy, thus deliberate efforts should be made to sustain the growth of this sector. The major causes of the early failure of most Micro Small and Medium Enterprises is poor financial planning/management, unstructured business processes and extremely unorganized business timing strategy. In view of this, many business owners are only being Busy and are not really doing Business.. All the resources invested into our businesses are expected to yield a return, one of the most expensive resources that business owners invest is their TIME which cannot be bought with money. Thence, to compensate business owners for the time invested, everything little time spend must give a measurable and trace-able return in terms of money. If you are busy and your are not making money; then you are not doing business.
The Solution: Because many business owners are just doing BusyNESS and BusiNESS, we at amuGOLD HELPERS Foundation in collaboration with experienced and successful SMEs in Nigeria are organizing a session to educate our youth, civil servants and even business developers on how we can turn our BusyNESS-2-BusiNESS (B2B Session) without doing too much. You don’t need extra hours to achieve more result, what is need is extra efforts to rethink and act for growth. The B2B Session making our young entrepreneurs and start ups in Nigeria make productive use of their business time, to strategically create a conscious mindset that will convert every act of BusyNESS to BusiNESS. Hence, we came up with the BusyNESS-2-BusiNESS® Session; with the slogan “…get busy making money!”
